Understanding and Appreciating Your Scars

A lot of time I share about my life experiences, obstacles, scars, bruises and challenges not because I live in the past but I appreciate the journey that helped shape me to be the person I am today.
In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you.
You are the result of everything you have experienced up to now. Any mistakes in the past? ok. You learned. The past is not changed, it is not regretted and it is not denied, it just needs to be understood, accepted and forgiven to allow you to move forward doing better.
All of our experiences the good, the bad and the ugly, shape who we are.
We have to remember that our experiences are just that experiences/lessons.
What happened to us or what we have gone through does not have to define us and so we should not be ashamed of it.
I know some of you are going through a rough time, maybe you are in the fight for your destiny, fighting for your future, fighting for your career, fighting for your marriage, fighting for your health, some of you fighting for your life. You are being humiliated, frustrated, depressed and bruised by life and for sure you will be left with scars. No doubt there will be marks in your life, but I assure you that you will overcome and sail to the other side.
That experience you are going through was a requirement to train and prepare you and also preparation for testimonies because you will require that experience to be encouraging others.
Be proud of your Scars, whether good or bad because they reshaped you to be the best version of who you are now. Always love your imperfections and don’t hate them.
The tests we face in life’s journey are not to reveal our weaknesses but to help us discover our inner strengths.
We can only know how strong we are when we strive and thrive beyond the challenges we face.
The scars we incur along the path to our great destiny are the STORIES OF OUR PURSUITS. EVIDENCE of overcoming odds, and not our life. IT IS OUR STORY.
Your scars are battle wounds to remind you that you are an overcomer and an evidence to show to other people that they too can overcome.
When you learn to appreciate the challenges that you face, you will become unstoppable.
All your failures and success has made what you are today.
Be grateful for them.
The Greater the obstacle, the more the glory in overcoming it.
Every scar is building your throne.
