Read Philippians 1:6
Lessons that come easy are not lessons at all. They are simply lessons of luck. Yet, lessons learned the hard way usually are lessons never forgotten. Some people look at the foolish choices they have made and their painful consequences and come to the conclusion, "I am such a loser!" That's one way of looking at it. Another is, "I really messed up, but today is a new day and I'll learn from my mistakes and not repeat them!"
Your past does not define your future. We can't go back and make a new beginning, but we can all start now and make a new ending! Live the #E525 life. God bless.
