“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.
I posted this on facebook but I wanted to elaborate more and this give me a better medium to do that through. What’s the meaning of life? Who knows. I think it’s up to individuals to discover that for themselves. For me, I just wanna have a lasting positive impact on as many people as possible, while minimizing the negative impacts I have as much as possible. This is not to say that what I said above is what all people should be striving for or should be their end goals. Like I said before, each individual has their own life, and their own path to go down and goals to pursue. I don’t want to do any harm against people that isn’t completely necessary. The only time I feel that it would be necessary to hard a person would be to protect another or yourself, and in that case, there should be no hesitation or prejudice, what needs to be done must be done.
