Let's face it, we all screw up and sometimes we do so with a bang....we hit rock bottom and everyone learns about it. We feel bruised up, shamed and at times we are left confused and wondering what to do next. Don't worry....you are in good company. Some may try to hide their mistakes, but rest assured, we all got a story or two in our closet.
So what now? My mistakes are out in the open, people don't trust me. or except not nothing good from me......what do I do? Well first off, pay no attention to the "people" and focus on what you need to do to get back on track. I know....easier said than done, yeah you are right. But I find it better than living in the shadow of what was and letting others dictate who you are and can be. But then again, that's just me.
So you screwed up.......OK, the good news is you KNOW IT! Now, look at your mess, and think "What is the desired outcome?" Now don't think of snapping your fingers and making it go away cause you know that shit don't work. Instead let's get serious....."What can I do to improve my situation?" Well, the first thing is to stop crying or wallowing in self pity. It is what it is.....now to pick up the pieces. Get clear on what you want in life.....do it FOR YOU. In my case I do it for my Daughter and me. Why? Cause she motivates me to be better...you see me being strong, and capable of creating is the best legacy I can leave to her.
So what motivates you? What is your, "WHY?" Figure this out, because this will be what gives you the strength and commitment to pick up the pieces of your life, to clean up the mess and to use what's left to build a better future.
You are not defined by yesterday.....you are defined by what you create right now. So what's it going to be? Hmmmmmm the truth is, it's entirely up to you......it's your life, so connect to self, understand your purpose and live your life committed to fulfilling that purpose.
If someone wants to judge you or keep you a prisoner of your past, don't worry, instead understand that they too belong in the past....and focus on the future. Don't let the noise of the past keep you from seeing, hearing and recognizing the beautiful sounds of the future.
Ah and remember; Tomorrow depends on what you do today, or better yet, Right Now!
