Stuck In The Past? Time to Turn the Page!

Stuck In The Past? Time to Turn the Page!

The past is a reference , not a residence. Do not let the things that took place define the future. Never look back unless it is to see how far you have come. You may not be where you want to be, but be glad you are not where you were! Everyone has made mistakes, we all have made poor decisions, acted in ways that were not ideal, and said things we regret. We should learn from those mistakes. One thing is for sure, nobody ever got to the next level while tripping over their past missteps . If you want to get ahead, you cannot be looking backwards. Make right what you can, forgive and accept forgiveness for past problems, and do all you can to right anything you have wronged. After that, turn the page and press forward! Make today the first day of the rest of your life! It really is time to let it go– regrets, resentments, anger, and disappointments from the past only serve as a ball and chain for you as you head towards your goal. Cut the chains, and never look back, unless of course it is to confirm how far you have come! Nobody has a testimony without a test and nobody has a message without a mess! Are you ready to move forward today?

I am a social worker and family coach for 20+ years. I have had around 50 foster kids , worked in every and any type of facility from juvenile centers to clinical treatment centers to schools for expelled youth . I've been successful with starting schools for violent offenders , training hospital staff , entire counties of public school teachers, parents and many more on behavior management and helping families in trouble . I have been honored to speak on many occasions and to teach professionals what is wrong with our systems for kids and adults, and how I was able to have successful outcomes in all the programs that I ran. And yes- I do have all the accolades and awards and pats on the back from high places and degrees but I'm not in this for that recognition. I appreciate the acknowledgement I've received over the years, but I don't even have an " I love me" wall in the office..so I don't even know where those things are anymore ..LOL I have lived a hard life myself and grew up in a very violent and abusive home. My family Is filled with depression , addiction and suicide. I also have had to navigate my way through these areas . I use my own experience to help others. I hope you will join the awesome people who follow me and share their stories. This Is a place to come to keep it real. We all struggle . So on this site we keep it legit. No judgement. What are you waiting for? Follow! tj
