“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”
Poetry, prose, and quotes often have different meanings or interpretations based on the reader’s life experiences. Below, I have offered my initial inference of what the words above mean to me. Please feel free to leave yours in the comments section so that other readers might realize a more diverse interpretation. (The context in which the words may have been originally presented, and by whom, are not the primary issues, just what the words might mean to us, or for us, individually, in the now.)
My interpretation of this quote: Your past failures, behaviors, and attitudes that have led you to your current circumstances do not control your future. Your new ones do.
What’s yours? (post in comments section below)
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
