This is a philosophical statement. It is intended to spark thinking and examining.
We may not like our history, but it’s history.
History, however, need not define us.
Nor how things will go.
Creating the future begins by taking responsibility for our history.
All of it.
Be present to the what happened.
Get all the unsaids,
all the hidden views,
all the truths we’ve been telling ourselves for years.
Be responsible for those too.
Be willing to accept the consequences.
Clean up the messes made.
And get responsible and involved for charting where we want to go.
Get in action.
It may not be easy.
It may not be quick.
But if we want to live and be who we say we are…
It’s what we have to do.
