My teammate, Lindsay Benson, shared this Joel Osteen quote with me, and suggested it might be a good topic to blog on. I like it and I agree, Lindsay!
“You are not defined by your past, you are prepared by your past.”
I think this quote speaks volumes about the attitude and perspective you take on your past. I agree that your past does not define you, rather it prepares you to be who you are today and shapes who you will become in the future.
What do you think?
Thanks so much Lindsay!
We can also choose not to be shaped by our past and simply start afresh.
Good point, Tee! Thank you for sharing~
I’ve always said that everything we go through is just preparation for the future!
Totally agree with that sentiment! Well said (I love Joel). All of life’s experiences (good and bad) prepare you and equip you to deal with the present and the future.
Thank you so much for connecting and sharing…love that!
