This is a copy of the Healthy Reflections I got from the Spark People today. It got me to thinking and I decided to share the message and my thoughts on it with ya'll today. It may apply to your life, or it may not. But I hope you find it interesting. Frankly, I think it can probably apply to all of us in some degree. Whether it was a poor childhood, a bad marriage or whatever.
Do you accept responsibly for your choices in life?.
Do you feel in control of your life? No matter how negative events or actions may become, you are the only force that is able to determine the reaction. Often we fail to do this, and instead blame the world for our feelings of sadness, rejection, and hopelessness. The reality is that your actions are a choice, and you must claim those feelings and choices. We can be our best cheerleader or worst enemy when it comes to determining the health of our emotions. Do some pep talks with yourself each morning. This will help you develop positive, self-affirming thoughts that will enhance your personal development and growth.
Have a great day.
