What was, was... What will be is up to You

How many times have you said or done something and regretted it? Be it a slip up, accident, or even something you had planned that didn't work our right?

I was told once by a wise young lady (my daughter Emily) that once the toothpaste is out you can't put it back in. Same thing with our lives. Once something happens you can't make it go away. Once you say something you can't pretend you didn't say it. You need to learn from what happened or what you said and move forward. Why did it happen (good and bad)? What were you expecting to happen? Why didnt it work out like you expected? What would you do next time?

Remember, we all make mistakes. We just need to learn and move on. What will be is up to us though! We can't change what happened but we can shape our future.

Nothing in the future has been determined. It is totally up to us. The actions we take determine our future. Our dreams are our destiny. Our destiny is our creation.

We can't change what happened but we don't have to be a slave to it. Learn and grow and use that experience to move forward. Use it to shape your future in a positive way.

Can you hear that?

How often do you turn everything off and just listen? How often do you stop all the noise and just think?

We are so used to having the radio on when we drive. The TV on while you read the paper? A baseball game on when you write a blog? (OK... that's me!) When we always have the background noise on we can't really think. Our minds don't focus on the task at hand.

Just like you can't hear the wind chimes outside during a hurricane, you can't hear your thoughts with all the other distractions. What great things are you missing with the other noises? What great thoughts can't you hear?

Remember, we have greatness inside of us. You have many special gifts that need to learned and shared. You can't grow them if you don't listen. You can't find them if you don't hear them?

Find a quiet place for 15 minutes a day. Turn the radio off, turn the TV off and just listen. Listen to your brain, listen to your ideas. Listen to what God is telling you. You will be amazed at what you hear when you start to listen.
