Last night, I chatted about confronting the hard things in life, and wanted to have a mini chit chat today from my heart. Life can be hard, and confusing at times, but it can also be filled with new adventures and joyful moments. I honestly struggled with the fact that everything is on ME. I am responsible for how my life will truly turn out, and I must be accountable for the choices that I make and not for someone else. I am the type of person to tell people to GO GET IT, but I have to deliver that same speech to myself. I spent years in the zone of complacency and allowed myself to fall victim to victimhood. Yes, I have scars from my past, and can’t lie about the resentment and anger I held against people over certain situations that transpired in my life BUT…………..I still have ME. At the end of the day, I have myself. When I wake up in the morning, I have myself. So if I’m with myself 24 hours out of each day EVERYDAY then I truly know that I will be the one living out the consequences (both good and bad) for choices I do make. I don’t have to put up with certain things. I don’t have to waste time meditating on the bad. I can certainly go out enjoy what I can in my life.
This is the revelation that we need: You are only responsible for YOU. You are to be held accountable only for You. Yes, I’m currently raising a smart eight year boy, but he has to learn to make his OWN decisions for his life. I am not responsible or will be held accountable for what he decides to do with his life when he gets older, but my job is to instill the right things in him now so he can make better choices later. He has to realize that the responsibility of making something beautiful out of his life lies in his hands. It’s a wonderful thing to know that I do not need anyone’s permission to start over in my life. I do not have to beg someone to allow me to “be great”. I have to do my due diligence in making sure that I do not hinder or handicap myself in a way that stops me from flourishing in my life.
As always feel free to comment and chat it up with me…Good day peeps!
