Nothing happens TO us. It happens THROUGH us. That’s because we are always a part of the equation. If you have had, like I did last weekend, a very intense and stressful situation and you want to place blame for it, don’t forget to include yourself. Our reaction to other people’s actions are ALWAYS a choice. However. There can be times when the situation is so overwhelming or we are not feeling out best, that reactions occur. This is an opportunity to step back, see where we have gone out of balance and take the steps to put ourselves back on track. Toward that end, I am taking a day off tomorrow and intend to practice what I preach.
“Today is a chance to set things right, starting with myself.”
