“Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It’s not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy, the weather, an argument or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make. Period.”
I think this quote has come to mind many times over the past couple of weeks, so I had to use it!
At first, it seems kind of harsh.
I mean, there are SOME things that ARE completely out of our control.
There are SOME things that really do impact our lives in ways we can’t control.
BUT, we are always in control of our response, our reaction, how we “come out of it.”
We can only stay in “victim mode” so long! Then we need to take responsibility to make some changes and take control of our destiny.
That’s when we can be empowered and begin to feel so blessed that we were given the gift of free agency and the opportunities and choices to make an amazing life for ourselves, regardless of the “bad” that we may have encountered.
