The Blame Game
Saturday, June 30, 2018
It really bugs me when people blame others for what they have become. They make excuses and justify stupid reasons on why they are lacking advancement in life. People spend more time thinking and making up excuses rather than changing their lives for the better…
People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives.-J. Michael Straczynski
We should all take our own life seriously…by this I mean take 100% ownership of your thoughts, emotions, actions —your state of mind.
Each and every one of us is responsible for creating our own world, our own environments and surroundings.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you, never excuse yourself.-Henry Ward Beecher
Be your own master. Don’t let yourself get dragged behind someone else’s path. Stop blaming others for your dispositions and change the way you perceive the world so you can be in control of your own life and make your own decisions.
Nothing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything, and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means. It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible. -Francois de la Rochefoucauld
With all that being said; I'm as guilty as the next person and need to work on myself and where I need to be. Emotions such as the ones I've had since mom, my sister Connie and my brother-in-law Bobby all dying in the past 2 years has taken its toll on me. When I think back on where I could have been vs where I am now; had all of this grief not hit me like a brick wall I would actually be to my goal weight. But, I'm still here. I'm still trying. I will continue to try as long as I have a breath to take and a heart that still beats.
Love & Hugs to all. Stay cool today we have a 115 heat index here in OH today. ~ Donna
