Which will you choose, sunshine: yesterday or tomorrow?
I am a hopeless romantic. The Notebook, Titanic, and my all-time fave of adolescence: 16 Candles.
Some of these movies I can pretty much recite by heart (why couldn’t I remember all of the bones for my high school anatomy exam?!?), but one line in particular from another oldie but goodie, Message in a Bottle, really stands out.
Nearing the end, the dashingly handsome Paul Newman asks a defeated Kevin Costner, “Are you going to choose yesterday or tomorrow?”.
I don’t know about you, sunshine, but I would rather live my life making choices that align with where I’m going rather than where I’ve been.
For too long, I lived dwelling in the past, allowing my circumstances and experiences to limit me and keep me from moving forward. But when I learned that God does not want me to camp out in Victim City, rather, He wanted me thinking bigger picture (Hello, eternity!) and setting my mind on things above and not on things of this world. As a result, my life completely changed.
I painted a crystal clear vision for what I wanted my life to look like. And then I created it.
I lost 100+ pounds. I started dating. I relocated to a new city. I got a new job. I ventured on missions trips.
And I continue to revise the vision and keep recreating myself and my life. I bought a house. I started a new business. I dropped inches and body fat. I took up new hobbies and activities. I travel to new places.
So what about you, sunshine? Do you have a vision for your life? What does your tomorrow look like? I want you to create what’s possible based upon your future goals and desires, rather than living your life out of fear of your past.
If you’re stuck and not sure how to escape those past setbacks and limitations that the enemy likes to keep reminding you, let’s connect and paint the picture and choose tomorrow together.
All of my best, Frannie
