No peace nor contentment until our attitude sees everything as an opportunity

Our better starts with ourselves, not others

 

Expecting others to change without first transforming ourselves is the worst kind of double standard.

Most of us our blind to this.

No peace nor contentment until our attitude sees everything as an opportunity.

For starters, most social thinking is flawed

Another brand new day. What is it going to be? You are in charge of that.

 

Was reading yesterday and stumbled upon this statement:

You can never expect to be someone else’s priority if you aren’t your own.

What does this mean? For starters it is flawed thinking.

Why?

Because as a midlife adult, truth be told, no one will ever care more about you than you.

Everything that happens to us is our responsibility.

Running our life is like running a business, like it or not.

And not paying attention to the business details will drive us to bankruptcy.

And approaching each day in a balanced way, and with excellence, will keep our business in the black.

Insight: Be the entrepreneur you have always dreamt of being, starting with your promotion to CEO of You, Inc.

We don’t particularly like being reminded of this

Decades ago, it was obvious that giving up everything was necessary in order to work here

 

Personal responsibility is the path to peace, contentment, and joy.

We don’t particularly like being reminded of this, until we figure out we should remind ourselves of this – all day, everyday.

Do we abdicate this our whole lives until we realize it’s quicksand?

Do we abdicate this our whole lives until we realize it’s quicksand?

Responsibility.

Our personal responsibility to make decisions for ourselves so someone else doesn’t have to?

Is it appropriate for aging adults to place this responsibility on their children?

Or is this simply an insidious societal decline in personal leadership?

The one thing so easy to completely forget after the honeymoon

the devil doesn’t make us bad, he makes us busy

 

The one thing so easy to completely forget after the honeymoon of excitement – you know, the honeymoon of initial, feels-great-to-be-recommitted energy around promises we made to course correct after decades of Baby Boomer wandering.

The whole part about changing.

Remember?

Changing… wanting to… promising to recommit… remember?

To tackle today in a balanced way, I love jumping from mind (this blog) to body (this blog).
