Be More

You Choose

You Choose

We all have a past. We all have a history. But no one moves forward in life by looking at what’s in the rear view mirror. Can you imagine? Driving down a freeway going 70 miles per hour, but the only place you can look is behind you? I hate to break it to you, but you’d be dead. Are you killing your future by focusing on your past?

When we focus on our past, what we’ve done, where we were ……and not on our future and where we are going, we cripple ourselves. You were given a gift from God. Use it.


It’s a beautiful thing, choice. God gave us a choice. It’s His powerful gift to us all. He has given us power to choose. Power to recreate ourselves, wipe the slate clean, start over. And deep within the human spirit is a desire to do that. To be new. To start over. To experience change.

It’s never too late to become your best self. Take the beliefs that are in conflict with your goals and your purpose and reject them. It’s that simple.

Today, you choose. Where you’ll go. How you’ll handle things. How you’ll respond when things don’t go your way.

It’s not about having our way all the time and being the one who wins, it’s all about who we BECOME in this journey of life that matters. Where was our heart? What was our focus on?


To dream gives us something to live for. To press forward despite a past that is littered with shattered pieces encourages us all. So do your part. Quit trying to be an overnight wonder. Stop punishing yourself for things in your past. If God offers forgiveness, please, take it. He gave you a choice. So choose.

Your best life is just ahead!

With love,

Sandi Krakowski
