We all need to own what we do

We all need to own what we do

 

We all need to own what we do in our lives. You need to stand up and own who you are and the choices you made.

 

I write this blog every day, I put my self out there to be judged every day, I own each and every mistake I made and then I place it out here for you to see. I owned that I stayed in a horrible marriage for 24 years,  I owned that I had a emotional affair for the last five years of that marriage, I owned that after I got separated, that I fell in love with a man who wouldn’t or couldn’t love me back.

 

After my divorce, I owned that I was taken in by someone who lied and cheated on me. These  are my mistakes and I fully stand up and take responsibility for all of them. You cant blame people for your mistakes, you can’t say because I got caught it is all your fault.

 

If you want to grow and change, you must grow up and deal with the aftermath of what you have done, it is only then you will be able to change.

I remember being with my girls in Ny and I was driving their Aunt Pams car and we drove it into the garage, I opened the hatch not knowing the ceiling wasn’t high enough, I heard a sickening sound and we got out to see what we did. There was a dent in the back of her trunk.

 

My girls who were young at the time, said “mommy dont tell Aunt Pam, she will get mad, she won’t know ” I said  “No, but I will , I did this, I own this ” so I marched them upstairs to apologize and offer to pay to fix it , come to find out the dent was there from them not us.

 

I taught them to do the right thing, for them to own what they do,then to apologize and take responsibility to try to make things right. We grow, we learn, we change, hopefully for the better but unless your willing to step up and deal with your issues, you will never go on to your next level.

 

So today my friends, own up, believe me its not so bad, at least your not doing it in front of thousands of people like I do each and every day, then forgive yourself and let it go.

That is what I am doing today, I am forgiving myself and letting it go. Life is too short for regrets! Life it big, live it to the fullest, live it with a clear heart, live it!!!
