I always thought that if I was able to go back and start something over, I would do it exactly the same way. Because all my experiences lead me to the decisions I make.
Therefore it is impossible to make any other decision then I made.
I believe that we are all doing the best we can. This is not an excuse. There was a time in my life that I went in circles it was the best I could do. I always want to do better, so I never gave up. The limiting effects of being a victim held me back. When I decided that I was no longer a victim I made better decsions and my life started to look brighter.
Some of the better decsions I made were to read about not being a victim. Spiritual laws that govern the responses to the things we do. “You reap what you sow” is an expample of these laws. Learning about prayer and how it works for change. The concept that is taught “that God is in control of everything” had to be questioned. For if God is in control of everything, there is nothing we can do to better our lives. We need to be a victim of God’s and hope for the best. I am in contol of my future. I work inside God’s laws today. Therefore I reap the benifits.
Today I like who I am. I like who I was yesterday, but who I was yesterday is not acceptable today.
