I saw this sign a while back and have decided to put it on the soft-board in front of my working space.
There are a few more affirmations that I’d like to put up too, but for now I want to examine this a little closer.
In my desire to be authentic, I can no longer can I pass the buck and blame anyone or anything for my past mistakes or my present state of being.
I look back on my relationships, especially the ones I’ve been hurt in, and realize my part in allowing certain things to happen to me. I know that by bringing in my ‘people-pleasing energy’, I gave some people the right to walk all over me. Was it their fault? Yes, but only some extent. I cannot absolve myself of my part in these ‘transactions’. However, I will not spend any energy on feeling guilty. I accept my actions and I spend my energy on becoming aware of my present relationships and how I am transacting in them.
Similarly, I’m examining the kind of energy I bring into my home, my writing, my blog……
I am response-able. I am taking responsibility for the energy I bring into every aspect of my life.
