Yesterday, I had brunch with 2 of my cousins, my aunt and their friend, and we laughed and shared stories of our past, some extreme and some hurtful but listening to the friend & about his past was shocking but how remarkably he changed his past. Then my cousin shared a story of her daughter and the pain she endured with the father that now things were coming along as a family of unity after many years together. The father/husband realize how valuable “family” meant to him and now is doing all that he can do to not lose them again. Driving home from the restaurant I came across church billboards with different quotes “Swallow your pride, it doesn’t contain calories”, another that read “Exercise Daily-walk with God” 2 different sayings with the same metaphors and I realize that by changing my past meant I was going to have to swallow my pride and exercise daily with my walk in Christ. You can either; walk, run or skip in your journey; regardless it’s going to happen. Whether I choose to walk, run or skip life will go on but I have to make sure that while life hasn’t stopped I need to change and build better relationships.
