Did you ever do something last night that you regret in the morning????
We took a friend out for a birthday dinner last night, and well – There were 6 appetizers for four people. Then salads. THEN entrées. I don’t know WHAT I was thinking! I just couldn’t STOP!
My stomach was full. It didn’t matter.
I knew I was blowing way over my calories for today, tomorrow, and the next day… But it didn’t seem to slow me down.
I ate so much I started getting sleepy at the table! But somehow managed to take a few more bites. 😱
And then this morning-
Stepping up to the scale I SWEAR I heard that epic horror movie music that lets you know, “the bad guy is about to jump out!”
Then that number… instant #REGRET 😭
C’mon, be honest and tell me.
WE HAVE ALL BEEN THERE.
Here’s the facts.
I can’t change last night. I can’t change my past.
But I can keep my past from changing me.
I can sit here and feel bad. Have a pity party… (Only one person was there) Let it depress me today so that I end up eating ice cream to feel better…
I can decide that I can LET the past change me. In a GOOD way!
Instead of letting my past (in and of its own) decide my present, or even my future.
I can glean wisdom from it.
Failure is only failure when you allow it to stop you. Otherwise, failure is a learning experience and only makes you better‼️
Paul says it this way, “forgetting what is behind and reaching for what is ahead.”
Which honestly, in this context, has a double meaning… I’m really going to have to not look at my behind. 😂
You Did It. It’s Done. Can’t Change That.
SO – what are YOU going to do NOW????
That’s the question.
Don’t let yesterday ruin today. Yesterday was yesterday.
Don’t relive yesterday today, TODAY is today.
Live today! What are you going to do today?
You got another chance. You got another opportunity at the plate to take a big swing and hit a home run.
But if all you think about is the last strike out…
Don’t sit there and dwell on the last time you failed. I want to ask you a serious question. What’s the last thing you did right? What’s the last thing you’re proud of?
Think about THAT! It’s Bible 😊
So, whatcha gonna do TODAY champ???
