“If you want to fill your hands with gold, you must first let go of the stones that you are holding.” ~ Ancient Proverb
“Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important, in some respect, whether he chooses to be so or not.” ~ Nathaniel Howthorne
“It’s easy to carry the past as a burden instead of a school. It’s easy to let it overwhelm you instead of educate you.” ~ Jim Rohn
There are many circumstances, personally and in our society, where this quote is relevant. It’s absolutely true, as I’ve learned through my own experience.
Accept the past is behind us and be proud of the scars we have on the other side. It’s kind of a “life tattoo”.
