All Your Fault

12 Feb

There are billions of people in the world and we all have our own opinions and decisions to make each day. When we connect with others and build our lives around them, their ideas become part of our every day experience. Sometimes they may make suggestions about what we should do, and where we should go. We can listen to their advice, and if we decide to do what they suggest, we never know what the results will be. Sometimes things may go well, and we may be grateful for the help. But if things go wrong, our feelings may be far different. If we’re suffering because we did something someone else thought was a good idea, we may blame them for what’s happened and tell them our troubles are all their fault. After all, if they hadn’t suggested the idea, we would never have done it. While it’s true they may own the idea, it’s also true that once we decided to follow through with it, it became ours. We own all our decisions, even the ones that don’t work out. If we follow along, what happens is on us. We are in control of everything we do. There is no way to place the blame for a disastrous decision we make on someone else. Nothing is permanent and no matter what goes wrong, we can change direction. Mistakes are a natural part of life and teach us a lot about our world and ourselves. Accepting a wrong turn and then doing what is needed to correct our course will help us find success. Every destination is possible. Even if we get lost a time or two, we can reach any goal we desire. We can be confident we will prevail, and step forward with clarity and assurance that we will succeed.

Some people feel very confident they are right and when decisions are looming, may challenge those around them. If we don’t agree with their position, we may feel intimidated trying to get our point across. If we sit back and keep our thoughts to ourselves, deciding it’s easier to follow along than take a chance, we own what happens next. Every viewpoint has value and we can voice our opinion with confidence. We are in charge of our lives, and can choose the way forward.

Nobody is perfect and there will be times when we turn the wrong way and things go south. There will likely be someone else who was involved in some way, and if we like, we can point the finger at them and say it’s their fault. Placing blame will never fix our situation, and if we’re being dishonest, may make it worse. We are where we are. How we got there is no longer germane. The best we can do is look ahead and decide on the best road moving forward. Life is filled with all kinds of complications. We can learn from every experience, and make excellent decisions that will take us to our goals. Nothing is out of reach, and with patience, and wisdom, we will succeed.

Today if everything has gone wrong, own your decisions and decide on the best way forward. Mistakes don’t define your life. You are intelligent and capable. Learn everything you can from what’s happened and determine your next step. Every success is still there for you. Be strong and confident. You know what you want, and you will prevail.

Taking Time Out

8 Feb

Our lives are constantly changing and there are endless things to address and manage as we move along. In the midst of our regular responsibilities, taking care of chores, managing appointments, and getting work accomplished, we have our personal dreams and desires that need attention. It’s easy to get caught up in the maintenance of our lives trying to keep things going. We may be busy, but it’s important to take time out and think about the dreams we hold dear and all the goals we want to achieve. It’s difficult to find true happiness by checking off boxes and getting lists of details completed. Our personal dreams and goals will continually niggle at us and remind us of what we really want. It’s good to be responsible and get all the details of our lives taken care of but real contentment only comes when we are living the lives we dream about and headed toward the destinations we really want. Time is a limited commodity and once it passes can never be recaptured. How we use it is up to us. If we are self-directed and in control, we can manage our tasks and still make time to do all the things we dream about. Our lives are ours to live and every decision we make takes us somewhere. We deserve complete happiness and when we make our dreams come true, we will find it.

There are only so many hours in a day and nothing we do can extend it, even if we desperately want a little more. If we are ineffective in managing our responsibilities and don’t get things done, we may complain that there just isn’t enough time. That may be true but often we end up with incomplete tasks because we ineffectively used the time we had. There are endless activities to distract us and if we are unfocused or lack discipline we may waste our time and end up completing nothing. Learning what works and how to manage our time going forward will help us find success. We can do anything and with proper planning will get where we want to go.

Down time is a good way to recharge our imagination and refuel our energy. Getting away from our responsibilities to take a walk, visit a friend, read a book, or simply think about our lives, can rejuvenate us and open new ideas going forward. We don’t have to move constantly to get things done. Stepping back and taking time out will often bring us new insight and help us see things in new ways. We know what we want and where we want to go. We can manage our lives to make sure we feel our best and have what we need to move forward. Everything is possible and we can do what is needed to make all our dreams come true.

Today if you’ve been running around getting things done and you’ve accomplished much but feel unsettled, take time out to think about what you want most. You deserve complete happiness. You can make all your dreams come true by planning carefully and managing your time. It’s all there for you. You can get to any destination you desire. Nothing will keep you from success. Plan well and go forward with confidence. Everything is possible.
