Susie, I could not agree with you more. We are all responsible for our own actions, and my definition of "growing up" is to take responsibility for your actions and to not be paralyzed by your misfortunes. To not make excuses and to continue forward is a lesson I learned in the Army during basic training, about 40 years ago.
Yea, you can't do anything in basic training but shake it off and move ahead, can you? That kind of internal will and strength is a powerful mindset to develop.
Highlighted what you said @ not letting yourself get 'paralyzed' by misfortune. Also requires inner strength and will... doesn't it?
Thank you Chris for participating in the Wake Up Eager Community. All the Best, and More! Suzie
