“You gotta let go of that stuff from the past ’cause it just doesn’t matter! The only thing that matters is what you choose to be now.”
Anybody know what movie that’s from? Po says it in Kung Fu Panda 2. If you know what I’m talking about you most likely have kids. If not Kung Fu Panda 1 & 2 are super good and you should watch them. If a third one comes out watch that too, but wait till it comes out on DVD so you’re not the creepy person with out kids at the theater. Po (Jack Black) is this super cute, out of shape Panda that defeats the bad guy.
I love that quote. It’s so true. Just because it came from a kid’s movie doesn’t make it childish. So many adults could benefit from it. And I pray it will help someone reading this right now. I’ve blogged about labels before. How we can’t allow our past to interfere our future . Yes it’s our past and it will always be part of us and we will always have to live with our choices and the consequences but we can’t let that define us.
If I didn’t learn form my mistakes, it’s quite possible my life would most likely be very different now:
Past: slightly slutty in high school…..Possible life: still slutty. (I’m sure my husband would love if I were a little more slutty with him. lol)
Past: I died my hair all the time….Possible life: bald.
So you see? If I never overcame my past or I let it define me I could possibly be a slutty, bald person. Ok, those might not be the best examples but hopefully you get my point. If you don’t let me try again.
We all have a past. Who cares? No one is perfect. We learn from our mistakes and we move on. Don’t give the mistake power over your life.
Thanks for allowing me to share my world with you…welcome to my brain.
