You can do it!

(You can do it!)

Everyone, all seven billion of us, has a life. Some may seem better than others but every one of them includes pain. The only question each one of us has to answer is “Am I my pain or am I my healing?”. That answer will determine, more than anything else, your future.

Pain can break you. There is no doubt about that. Do you have to stay broken? No you do not. An animal will respond to to whatever broke him or her with cowering even years later given the same stimulus. You do not have to. You are stronger than that. You can move on. You can grow. You can prosper. You can heal. All that it takes is your constant intent and your constant belief. The scars will always be there and they will be sensitive forever and you will have to adjust to them but you will not be cowered by them.

It takes a while for a wound to become a scar but it always will because life wants you to go on. Life wants you to get stronger, to succeed. A scar says, you made it. A scar says that you healed. A scar says that you refused to have an open wound. A scar says you have closed the wound. A scar says you weren’t irretrievably broken.

No one makes it through this life without scars. The difference between those who thrive and those who suffer long after the wound has closed is that some talk about what caused the scar and some talk about the healing.

So look at your soul and your heart and your body and when you see a scar there don’t say that’s where I was hurt. Say that’s where I healed. It makes all the difference.
