Spark People’s Healthy Reflection for Today:Are you creating your own life? Take a moment to look at the circumstances of your world. Is it what you want to see? What could you do differently to take one step closer to your ideal vision? We’re all dealt different hands in life. That’s how things are. To change things, you have to first accept that fact, then figure out where to go from here. We should all be able to count on each other for help, but in the end, we can’t expect anyone to change our lives except ourselves. Nor should we want it that way. It’s natural to feel powerless and give up in the face of hardships, but complaining and blaming do nothing except prevent action. Without positive action, you’re giving up your power and asking for more of the same–a world you did not create. Where you start may not be your fault, but the course you run is still your choosing.
I get e-mails from Spark People and this one really stood out to me because this is something I’ve been thinking about for about a week. This topic is part of a series called “Healthy Reflections” and the past few seem to address what’s been on my mind.
I’ve been thinking a lot about making my life what I want it to be, and this one really hit home.
After I posted this post, I decided to switch the list of Time’s 100 Books of All Time to the list of 100 Favorite Novels by Librarians in my Day Zero list. I’ve been looking at the Time 100 list thinking the books must be good for them to make the list, but they don’t sound like books I’d enjoy. I don’t want to drag myself through reading 100 books, so I found the list of 100 Favorite Novels by Librarians and it sounds so much better. I think I’d enjoy getting through that list.
