Someone once said that when the winds of change blow some people build walls while others build windmills.
When we experience ANYTHING we frame it as good or bad, positive or negative.
Lots of us would love to have someone to blame for how things go in our lives but the truth is…we make the decisions that get us where we are and we decide how we see the events in our lives.
Taking responsibility for your life can be challenging. If it goes great you pat yourself on the back (and you pat the backs of some of the folks who helped get you there). If things go south you have no one to blame but yourself (if there were others involved you chose to bring them into the situation).
I love the thought of Bubba Watson, one of the hot golfers on the PGA Tour. “I want to be the boss. I want to be the leader of Bubba Watson. What I say goes.”
Ya hafta love that!
Are you building walls or windmills today?
Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to call Mama if you won’t see her on Mothers Day.
