We soothe a child, “It’s not your fault”, counsel distressed friend, “It’s not your fault”, comfort someone bereaved, “It’s not your fault”.
So, what can we do?
Notice, take note. Make changes, little ones.
All at once?
No. Little bits. Every day, a little bit more. Save minutes, steps. Improve one thing. Another. Do a little more. Drive accomplishment. Do less of what wastes time, depletes energy. Add positive forces, eliminate negatives. One more thing, another thing – in no time at all we’ll have changed. Not everything, but we’ll change things that matter.
We own responsibility for everything in our lives, every decision, every day we don’t accomplish what we might, every minute or opportunity wasted, and we find fault, failings and fiascos. We don’t deserve it. We can’t do it all, every day, with perfection.
