It's a Hard Knock Life....

Published on Thursday, February 10, 2011 in , ,

Little orphan Annie isn't the only one singing to the beat of that song.  I see it everyday -- heck I've even been guilty of doing it myself.  You know what I'm talking about -- complaining about how hard life is and asking why me?  I'm proud to say that I have matured enough, however, to now know something I wish I would've realized a long time ago.  Life has taught me many lesssons, but the lesson I am about to share with you is by far one of the most important and it goes a little something like this.....

You are responsible for you and everything that happens to you. This is a hard pill to swallow, but it is so very true. Many of us go day to day sad, mad, anxious, worried or stressed about one thing or another. We go to our friends for advice and even pray to God for answers. We over analyze and question ourselves to the point of even more confusion. The truth is, if we could just take a moment to sit down and think about what role we play in the situations and circumstances in our life we could easily find the answers we seek.

When you stop putting yourself in the victim role and get the courage to take responsibility for the good and the bad in your life, life suddenly starts to look a little brighter. You no longer feel the need to dwell on the bad, but you are proactive about choosing you actions wisely, realizing the consequences of you actions, and learning lesions from those consequences – both good and bad. Remember, perception is everything. If you choose to look at the circumstances and consequences in your life as punishment, then that is just what they will be. If, however, you decide to look at them as life lessons you will have succeeded at truly liberating yourself.
