Today is the first day of the rest of your life

Last Update: July 01, 2014

I have noticed that many of the blogs on here are only to ready to present tales of woe, giving us their sad life histories. I'm sorry if what I am going to say offends anyone but I have spent far too much time reading through blogs on here that follow this trend.

Everyone of us is in total control of our destinies. The decisions we have made during our lives have resulted in us being where we are today. Every obstacle that we encounter provides us with an opportunity to take a path toward our destiny. How we decide to overcome that obstacle determines where we end up.

So guys, if you ain't happy with where you are, you have only yourself to blame. You need to change the way you think. Most importantly stop blaming others for your fortune. The past is the past, we can't change that. Learn from your failures and the way you have allowed others to influence your life and move on.

I just love this quote from famous actress Katharine Hepburn:-

"We are taught you must blame your father,your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. Its never your fault. But, its always your fault, if you want to change you're the one who has got to change".

WA gives us a great opportunity to make changes to our lives through our own efforts. Now you can take steps to change your life and you can control where you end up. Remember this blog title:

"Today is the first day of the rest of you life"

All in good time - we all eventually discover that our destiny is in our hands. We have different battles and we are at different stages of dealing with them - and yes with everyday being a first day. Thanks for sharing.

I agree with what you say whole heartedly Carol & Colin and live my life this way. However, some people have problems shaking off their conditioning more than others. I get a little frustrated when the expression 'can't' is used, but I consider that I've joined a community where we help each other as much as possible and if I can convince a few that 'can't' doesn't exist, I feel much happier. Love and light to you all.
