We Alone Are Responsible for Our Lives

It is so easy in life to forget that we are responsible for our own success, happiness, and inner-peace. It is often easier to blame others than to own up to our personal failures. Many people I speak with have difficulty in this area. It is always someone else's fault that they didn't get the promotion at work. It is because of a difficult childhood (past or present)that they are unhappy or not accomplishing what God put them on Earth to accomplish. Or...the most powerful to overcome is a lack of inner-peace. Often, this lack consumes all energies and thought. "Why can't I be happy?"

The answer is rather straight forward and so simple that it might elude us at first. We give happiness to ourselves by accepting equal amounts of credit for a job well done and at the same time, owning up to human errors in judgement and personal failure. Epiphany! It is not necessary to be perfect, but what is necessary is to step up to the plate and accept responsibility for our actions and place in life. If we are not happy where we are in life, who we have become, and what we are doing...we need to change...not the world around us. Be pro-active in these areas and success, happiness, and inner-peace will follow. Amazing Grace. sue

It's a matter of Choice; CHILD ABUSE can stop with us.

I added the above videos to educate; they are not the exception in Child Abuse...they are the norm. If we choose to ignore what is happening around us, that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are abused by their 18th Birthday...then we perpetuate the abuse and it enters all venues of our society.

It is not an illness with no cure, rather it is an epidemic that calls for recognition and involvement and it will cease.

About Me

My photo

     I've done a great deal in my lifetime and wouldn't change a thing.  Each new test and challenge ended up enriching my life and I ended up growing spiritually, in the end. My quest is to make the world a better place for those who follow.  It's never been about the taking for me, but rather about the giving. My rewards have been numerous and I count myself among the very fortunate. Most of my career has involved young people in some fashion.  As they go... so goes our future.
