Sunday night thoughts: if you think about it, life is a lot like writing a book filled with many different chapters. each chapter represents a significant moment or period of time in your life. during each of your chapters, you meet characters who change you, make mistakes that teach you, and most importantly, learn lessons that grow you. all of your previous chapters serve as background for your current chapter, but they do not define your new chapter. you see, each chapter has its purpose. even the shittiest, most "rock bottom" of chapters. and no matter how bad the last chapter was, you always have the choice to take the new chapter in any direction you desire.
try shifting your perspective and comparing the way you view your life to writing a chapter book. your story consists of a series of ups and downs through your experiences, emotions, and reactions. some of these you will have control over, while others you will not, but it is okay. it is so important that we do not dwell on any one chapter for too long, or designate it too much importance in our minds. when we get stuck on one chapter, aka staying stuck in negative thoughts & emotions about past experiences, we will likely miss what our new chapter is trying to show us. we cannot keep rereading old chapters and stay stuck in destructive cycles of thought. reflect on what each chapter served to teach you, and then let them go. move into each new chapter with an open mind and heart. embrace the uncertainty of the highs and low to come. after all, every chapter must eventually come to an end🐾
