I believe that the worst thing a person can do is just accept something that is unpleasant. Whether it's your thoughts, actions, of just plain circumstance.You have the power to change these things. How? Refuse to accept them. Strive to find out who you are. I once told someone that I can forgive others for the simple fact that we are all products of our environment. All of the terrible habits that we participate in or suffer from others are learned habits. They are not natural habits of the individual. Think about it. Even the most cruel individuals began as an innocent baby. What happened to that baby during it's life has molded that person into who they are today. Which brings me back to the title of this post. Those who accept these learned behaviors as their own label themselves by them. They figure that these actions define who they are. Wrong! Having three children of my own I can assure you that children start life eager to learn, eager to please, and eager to love, and to be loved. They begin perfect. But then they quickly learn from their surroundings and become little miniatures of what they see and experience. The end result? Assumption that these learned behaviors are who they are. Why? Because they don't know that they can choose who they are by doing this list of things: 1. Seek direction and inspiration. Of course; I highly recommend doing this on a spiritual level. 2. Make a list of things you would do over if you had a second chance at life. 3. Make that list a reality! As long as you have a breath in your body you can change who you are in life and how you contribute to it. 4. The most exhausting part is to remove everything you have set your mind to reject. But it's also the most rewarding. For example: I used to cuss as a sailor. Yep it's true. In fact my favorite word was the, "f," word. I dropped f-bombs so much that I made a song out of it. But then I was given motivation to change this learned behavior. I became pregnant. The last thing that I want to do is raise little foul mouthed mini me's. So over the course of time I replaced this habit with the habit of living a curse free life. It wasn't easy but I was determined and inspired to change. Being a positive influence to my children and those around me kept my eyes on the prize. And I succeeded. The saying is true--- You can do anything that you set your mind to do. Do you agree with the title of this post? If you do, what are you going to do about it? Blessings..
