Winston Churchill was asked if he thought history would be kind to him.

He answered, "Of course history will be kind to me for I intend to write it."

I love the boldness of that statement. I love the optimism for the future.

When life gives us a raw deal, when we are treated unfairly, or we when we make a total mess out of things, the temptation is to set up shop in the rubble of our life.

I beg you not to do that.

When we play the victim card we give up all our power. When we allow our wounds (no matter how deep they are) to paralyze us from embracing our future, we become slaves to our past.

Its sad but I know too many people who shoot their futures in the foot with every negative step they take.   

As People of the Second Chance, never forget you get the incredible privilege to write your own history. So start writing it.
