I can fly into the future if I leave my past behind

Posted by Charleigh , 17 June 2011 · 72 views

I'm often making mistakes, forgetting to pay bills, doing things I really shouldn't. I can think back through my life and pick out all of the mistakes and I beat myself up as if the original punishment for my actions wasn't enough. I find myself stuck in those past mistakes unable to step in the future with growth and change. I'm too focus...

"Hidden anger can kill me. I must recognize it and address it"
