The Blame Game

Sunday, July 26, 2009

It is so easy to blame others for our feelings, the reality is that we choose how we feel no matter what the situation.

Getting ready for my son's wedding I was blaming others for how I felt. They did not cause me to feel anything, it was my reaction to the situation. I do have control over how I feel and can choose to get on the emotional roller coaster or see things as they really are, be accountable to myself and take control of my feelings. I will try my best to maintain control and not give away ownership of my feelings as we approach the wedding day.

It is amazing what you can find on SparkPeople. Somehow stuff seems to appear just went you need it, an article, a post, a comment. I just want to thank everyone for being here. The support, insight and kindness are gifts of immeasurable value.
