The echoes of a battered past ring through the ears of the weak. 

Strength is not just measured in masculinity but in a combination of mind, body and spirit. 

If one has a strong body and weak mind then what can really be accomplished? The same goes for a strong mind and weak body or even spirit. 

Depression, addiction, anxiety and all of those evil things that try to peel us away from a happy life attack us the hardest when we are weak.

We have to first accept the things we cannot change. One thing we can never change is the past. Don’t dwell on the negative. 

Just like a child learns to walk, we have to learn to walk all over again in a new direction far away from our troubled past. 

If we don’t change our path then we are headed down the road to insanity. Pain will burn throughout our body. Our mind will spiral out of control. We will feel helpless, lost, crazy, emotional and dead to the world. 

What do we do? How do we get away from this destructive path? 

Strengthen the heart and fill it with love. Strengthen the body and make it yours. Strengthen the soul and find your peace. 

We each have our own path. Some short, some long. You will never know if you are on the right path unless you start walking on it. Take a chance, if you fall then get back up. Don’t be perfect, just be you. Train your tongue to speak the truth, nothing else matters. 

Life can be simple if we choose to let go of everything difficult. Let our yes be yes and no be no. Don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 

We have all heard these simple rules but most of them have been placed in the dusty attic to be long forgotten. 

Rewind, Reset, Re-evaluate your purpose in life. What image do you want to set for the next generation? 

Don’t let the echoes of a battered past keep you hidden from your full potential.
