Make-sure-that-your-pastAll the mistakes that you’ve ever made…

All of your abject failures and embarrassments…

All of the horrible things that have taken place…

All of the negative things that critics have said about you…

All of the rejections and doors that were slammed in your face…

Make sure that they leave bruises, not tattoos.

You don’t have to keep repeating or replaying the past.

You don’t have to become defined by the bad things that have happened to you.

We all get hurt, but we can heal, too.

The only permanent thing about your pain is that it should be permanently in your past.

So look at the marks on your life and know that they aren’t there forever, unless you allow them to stay.

Because your past leaves bruises, not tattoos.
