It’s been a while since I hosted the delightful Sharon Dunn. I first met her online when I endorsed her humorous mystery. Cow Crimes & The Mustang Menace. What a stitch that book was! Now Sharon writes regularly for Love Inspired Suspense. Here’s Sharon who shares not only the struggle her characters face but the same in her own life:
Your past choices do not determine your future.
That is the journey the heroine of my new Love Inspired Suspense Montana Standoff has to make. As a teenager Sarah Langston became pregnant and gave the baby up for adoption. Now ten years later, the father of that baby has come back into her life. Can they repair the damage that was done and rekindle a love that happened too quickly? People can have a second chance at a first love, but both Sarah and Bryan have to learn to forgive themselves and each for the destructive choices they made all those years ago.
In my own life,
I too am learning the value of forgiving myself. After years of being overweight, I am out of excuses and need to get healthy. I have a stronger motivation than ever before. My husband has been diagnosed with a very serious and difficult to treat cancer and I may be the only parent my kids have in a few years.
Now that’s motivation~
It has been less than a month and I have lost somewhere between 7 to 10 pounds, I joined a gym and am exercising every day.
One of the keys to not feeling defeated~
and wanting to give up is getting past my mess ups by repenting and forgiving myself. If I don’t do that, the little mess up of eating too much or eating the wrong thing just gets bigger in my mind and pretty soon I’m drowning in a sea of self condemnation. My past choice of indulging in pasta or eating the cupcake does not determine my future as a healthy person.
