In life, we have both good and bad experiences. Our experiences often shape who we are, what we think, and how we feel. This shaping can be so impactful that marriages fail because of baggage of prior relationships, people lose jobs because of behaviors at previous companies, and communication is broken today because of the inability to effectively communicate in the past. So yes, experiences are impactful.
Today, I want to challenge you to look at your experiences as just that, however do not allow them to skew your entire perception of a person, a place, or even an event. For example, if one had a bad experience with a women, then in his mind all women are no good. Or if you had a bad experience at a restaurant, then you refuse to go to any of them. Or if you had an argument with your mom ten years ago, you still refuse to have any interaction with her and the entire family. I am not saying that issues are real, but I am saying learn how to deal with them and move on. Live and enjoy life in spite of the past, do not operate in fear and restriction because of it.
So what is the life empowered moment for today, allow your experiences to be just that, learn from them, but don't allow them to keep you from realizing the best life that you can full of love, joy and happiness.
