“Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future”
This quote means a lot to me for a variety of reasons. Now as much as I strive to live a life free of regrets, a life where I don’t desire to change the past, I can still admit that I’m not particularly proud of all the things I have done, or the traits that have been found as part of my personality.
I’ve been “that guy” or done things that I would never want to be or do again.
The quote above means a lot to me because it embodies my own belief of human beings and of myself. You’re never beyond redemption, and you are always capable of changing.
I don’t want people to think I’m only talking about being a bad person too, I mean this in the sense that even if you are struggling with someone, depression, an eating disorder, cancer, whatever, these things can change, there is a chance at “redemption” fro these things as well, as long as you have the desire to change them, and the will to work at it.
That’s what I mean most I think, when it comes to never being past redemption. By that I mean that you are always capable of changing your life, yourself, and your circumstances.
I haven’t blogged lately because I don’t have a computer, I’m doing this from one of the various public computers on campus. I just felt like getting some stuff out there.
