I Am Responsible For Me

It sounds harsh, I know – but the truth is that once you are an adult you are responsible for your own happiness.  No one else is the cause of your decisions, whether or not you succeed, or if you are happy.  Once we are an adult we cannot blame others (mom or dad) for the way our lives are – because no matter how shitty or how spoiled or how dysfunctional your upbringing was, YOU have the choice now to make your life what you want it to be.

Of course, there are tragedies in life.  Those are rare, thankfully – and even so, how you overcome them is up to you.

You have the power to move your life in the direction of your dreams – and you have the choice to live in the past and wish it was more ideal.  You hold all the power – and you are responsible for your future.  Hanging on to the past is the biggest thing that keeps you stuck.

November is the start of the holiday season – it’s a time of forgiveness, a time for hope, and a time for gratitude.  Forgive yourself and anyone from your past that held you back – not for them, but for you.  Recognize all you have now – not just things, but also the choices you have.  Be grateful for the lessons.

Getting unstuck is hard – and the first step is to own your power – own your responsibility in being the only person who can move you forward.
