Good Monday morning to all of you fine looking people out there. I am hoping your day is starting as good as mine with my cuppa dark roast and a good night sleep behind me (those are rare these days) so let’s go make things happen.
I was having a conversation with my son yesterday and we were talking about taking responsibility for our actions and not blaming only circumstances but OWNING the situation. We were discussing his reaction to an opponent who was on the field taunting him and making fun of him at his game on Sunday. He lashed out and pushed the kid to the ground but got called for a costly penalty and a coach in his face.
He stated that he was provoked and he was responding to the situation and although I told him to always defend himself in situations that it is completely necessary, he needs to be the bigger and better man and own the situation … be a leader not a follower, don’t let circumstance dictate his actions.
We should treat our journeys the exact same way folks. Think about it … how often do we go off the rails because of a “reason” or because of an “excuse”? How often do we respond to situations with non healthy choices “because I have always done that and I can’t help it”?
We need to take control of the situation and own your actions. Some may say it is easier said than done but if we are focused in the right direction and prioritizing our drama, our circumstances and not reacting to them with unhealthy behaviors than half our issues will be gone. Now I also know I am a food addict and it is harder some days than others but this was my takeaway from my conversation with my son … if I can tell him to be a leader and own his actions … so can I.
Have a great day everyone.
Much Love, Shano
