Failure is not a tattoo, it's just a bruise, it will heal. The key to healing is not turning back. It's not judging yourself for your past mistakes, and refusing to allow your past mistakes to limit you. God doesn't remember them, so you don't have to either. Just take off and run as fast as you can to your goal. Don't look to the left, don't look to the right, and FOR SURE do not look back.
I've been through a divorce, a broken engagement, and the loss of a dream job in this crazy media business, but those things didn't stop me and they didn't break me. They aren't failures, they are incidents in life that bring me closer to God, and move me forward towards my dream of being a published author, speaker, and to continue broadcasting encouragement to live a strong and courageous life.
"By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward to Jesus, I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back." -Paul while in Prison (Phil 3:13-14 MSG)
It helps to have your tribe surrounding you. This is my core. My 3 Sunshines are the best motivation God ever gave me to not give up. I don't want them to give up on their dreams, so they have to see me not giving up on mine. So join me. Don't live in regret...run towards restoration.
