Conquered Scars (unedited). 06 Feb 2012

Celebrate your scars. That are both seen and unseen. These are the real evidence of conflicts, hardships and adversities. Which you have faced, endured and conquered in your life. C.J.MacKechnie
Scars are not unsightly nor are they ugly. They are the permanent reminders of your errors and mistakes. They are reminders of your selfless sacrifice. They are proof that you went forward by choice in harms way to conquer evil or to be evil. Either way the sadness you endure from your scars can be a positive emotion instead of a negative emotion. The logical choice of deciding which emotion to place upon your scars is all your. Even if your scars were a result of youthful stupidity. Ask yourself are you the same stupid person today? have you grown and matured into someone more positive and respectful? Has your scars led you to GOD/ALLAH/Grandfather who became your Heavenly Father? Can you now love everyone equally as your brother and sister? Even if they wish you harm? If you can answer yes? Can you answer yes? even while sitting in a chair with lifeless legs? Even while needing assistance to eat, drink or go to the bathroom? Even if your alone is some forgotten hospital?
I can tell you this as a truth. This is a blessing. This is a gift. This life in which you must endure is the crucible of your resolve and humility to be the son or daughter of GOD/ALLAH/Grandfather.
Peace be unto you my brother and sister. C.J.MacKechnie
