Recycle Your broken past

Njemo Naomi Mabuh
Posted November 24, 2019 from Cameroon

 

Everyone in life has gone through some moments that they wouldn’t want to relive… Painful, sad, depressing times, and also have been through happy, exciting and joyous moments…. I guess that’s just how life is.. “Like a coin with Two faces“. We never know what awaits us in the future. So, we shouldn’t keep ourselves bound within the limits of our past pains and gains….

Life is a journey, powered by the decision will of man. Somethings happen to us, we made the decision and choice, and others just come our way and makes us victims of circumstances. We have experienced joyous moments, and hard times have also so badly hit us as the sea banks hit the rocks by the seashore…  No matter how depressed we think we can be, or less confident of who we are, not worthy enough to accomplish what’s set before us, because we have tried in the past but yet couldn’t acheive, or because the world has labelled you as unfit, it makes you no less important than you think you are.

You’ve been hit and crushed down, but not destroyed. The power to be what you want to be, beckons on you to use it! We look too far trying to seek answers, who to tell us what will change us. No one’s a greater motivator than you are to yourself. 

“Our past whether be good or not, were flames of fire out of which we’ve been forged.  Its high time we stop focusing on the reason to our failure and fix our minds on the revelation it brings “

 In our daily lives, when we consume the content which is considered valuable, the container is often despised because the content has been used. At this point it could be thrown. But the concept of “recycling” amazes me so much!!

Basically, recycling entails reprocessing something to make it useful again. We need to start recycling those areas of our lives we think are broken. Don’t throw it out! Recycle it. And make your life a story to be told, a book to be read and a testimony to be given.

Beautiful week to you all!!!

Hello, Naomi,

You are right we all have our share of painful pasts. Some want to numb and forget about it. I'm curious if you can expand more, how does recycle our past look like? Do we go back to relive the memories, then process each pain until we find healing? Thank you for sharing this lovely post.

Thank u so much sis @karen.
Answer to your question: our past whether be it painful or a happy....left us with lessons.... And more importantly with expiriences. One important note is...its your past. You passed that test! And u survived. There has been lots of developments on your person. Unfortunately we often focus so much on the pains it caused.
There's someone out there who's never had your experiences but is at the verge of getting....while others are newly getting into it.
We can always use our pains to inspire others.
Hope I answered your question....thanks for reading through
Lots of hugs

Hello, dear. It is such a beautiful explanation. I agree with the lessons we learned from our past can be used to prevent others from committing those mistakes or can help others to arise from the same mistakes. I love it. Thank you for expounding on what past recycling means.

You're welcome, dear.
Have a great day!

Hello Naomi,
I can't agree with you less. This is life and road can't be smooth.
It's varies! However, we have to make sure to keep going. We can't afford to stand or wait because it will not wait for us.

I loved when you said:
"We have experienced joyous moments, and hard times have also so badly hit us as the sea banks hit the rocks by the seashore… No matter how depressed we think we can be, or less confident of who we are, not worthy enough to accomplish what’s set before us, because we have tried in the past but yet couldn’t acheive, or because the world has labelled you as unfit, it makes you no less important than you think you are."

Have a great weekend.
Hugs

Dear Naomi,
Wise words "recycling entails reprocessing something to make it useful again. We need to start recycling those areas of our lives we think are broken". Through the hurdles you have faced in life you have learned to soar. Such a good reminder as we face our own disappointments.
