I read a quote recently that said you can blame your parents until you’re 30, but after that, it’s time to take responsibility. OK, truthfully it said you can bitch about your parents until you’re 30; after that, shut up! LOL
Clearly it made me laugh, but it also made me think…and I think taking responsibility is sexy. <—-CLICK to Tweet Yes, we’ve all been shaped by things that happened in our past. By no means am I discounting that. I’m saying that it doesn’t have to be an either/or situation. It can be an AND.
Maybe things were pretty crappy when you were a kid. Some of the most inspirational people came from some pretty scary circumstances. The choices they made as adults are what made the difference. Every single day you wake up, you have a choice…AND you can choose to learn a different way.
Maybe your childhood was idyllic, but adulthood hasn’t been all that happy. You have the power to make a different choice. What’s one way you can choose happiness?
As sexy as it is to take responsibility, it’s also hard work. Our ingrained habits and patterns of thinking can absolutely be changed, but it’s not instant gratification. One choice after the other, change happens. Growth happens. You take your power back, all starting with a choice.
Your choices speak volumes. What do you want yours to say?
