t is our past experiences and emotions that make us who we are.
The experiences we live through; the sadness we suffer, the hurt we endure, the happiness we feel, and the love we come to know creates us, moulds our souls. Without our past we cannot learn and we cannot appreciate all that this life and the people in it have to offer us.
It has taken me a long time to realise that while the past has made we who I am, it is not what I am. My past sadness and heart ache has made me grateful and compassionate, it has made me appreciate everything that I have now, and taught me that while the future is untold, the story can be filled with happiness, love and hope – so long as you choose to write the story that way…
I know that here is a story inside us all, we just have to be willing to share it – and this is why I am inspired daily by the people who surround me – I find hope in others experiences and life stories. I find encouragement through those willing to share their skills and I know that I am a better person for having open ears, an open heart, and an open mind to all the possibilities that this world has to offer.
Because sometimes, hope knows the sun has risen even when the clouds cover every ray of light….
