“It doesn’t matter what’s been written in your story so far, it’s how you fill up the rest of the pages that counts.”

Have you ever wished that you could go back and change somethings  you’ve done in the past?  You wonder what life would have been like if you did things a little differently. We’ve all done things that we regret and the emotions that we experience with that feeling is never easy to swallow.  We can’t go back and change that things that happened in our past but we can start where we are and create a better future. It really is the rest of the pages in our lives that counts the most.

The fact that we get opportunities to start fresh each day is refreshing. The great things about life is that all we have to do is make a decision and start changing our behaviors if we really want to experience true change. Although change is not easy, “intolerance of your present is what creates your future.” When you get to a place where you are not satisfied with life you’ll  be willing to do whatever it takes to see change.

So how do we finish strong and rewrite our story:

1. Start Where you are

You can’t go back and change the past, so start where you are. Think about the things that you can do differently and begin to do those things. Take intentional steps each day to make the changes you desire one step at a time.

2. Work the process

Change is a process. Nothing happens instantly or overnight so free yourself from the stress of that expectation. As you are going through the process of change take intentional steps to see how you can get better and take action on executing the steps. Be willing to put in the work as you are going through the process and give things time to change.

3. Be Determined to create a better future

Change is hard. In order to finish strong and create a better future you have to be determined to get better. Make the decision in your mind that you will not quit until you see your desired results.

It brings so much hope to know that no matter what the past looks like the future can be brighter if you are intentional and put in the work. I just want to encourage you to finish this year and season of your life off strong, don’t be afraid to start where you are. Your future can be as bright as you make it.
