Reflections from an ever learning sojourner...
We have this one Life to live.
My life is meant to be lived by me.
Your life is meant to be lived by you.
No one else is responsible or in charge of what we decide to do with that.
I was given this one special life to live wholeheartedly and to embrace with gusto and passion. I am to take responsibility for every choice I make and all the consequences that follow.
So are you.
We cannot rely on the strengths, the dreams, the desires, or the choices of other people to carry us through. Those personal aspects are our responsibility alone. We were never meant to go through life holding on to the coattails of successful people, or blaming others for our troubles, or allowing anyone to manipulate us when they attempt to hijack our lives.
Let us be courageous with ourselves and respectful of others as we travel this journey called Life.
