The Bottom Line

June 9th, 2014 | Posted by Annette in Perspectives

In my life, I’ve noticed that most peo­ple go through a period of life where they blame oth­ers for what­ever injus­tice they believe has been inflicted upon them. I’ve been there myself, more times that I care to admit. I think it’s human nature to blame oth­ers. But I also think that it’s unproductive–even dam­ag­ing. Every­one has been through hard things. None of us really knows the life of another. Some people’s prob­lems are obvi­ous while other’s are hid­den. On top of that, life is never “fair.” But look­ing back­wards all the time, blam­ing fam­ily or even the world for our prob­lems won’t solve any­thing. I am reminded of an African Amer­i­can spir­i­tual titled, “Hold On.” The idea in the song is to not give up. Hold on! A line from the lyrics goes like this, “Can’t plow straight if you’re look­ing back.” In other words, mov­ing for­ward is much more dif­fi­cult if we hold on to the grudges of the past. Instead, work towards your goals instead of fes­ter­ing over past injus­tices. For­get or for­give past injuries, whether real or imag­ined. It really will make life eas­ier. Move for­ward so that you can work towards your dreams instead of your nightmares.

FACE IT, nobody owes you a liv­ing.
What you achieve, or fail to achieve in your life­time
Is directly related to what you do or fail to do.
No one chooses his par­ent or child­hood,
But you can choose your own direc­tion.
Every­one has prob­lems and obsta­cles to over­come,
But that too is rel­a­tive to each indi­vid­ual.

You can change any­thing in your life
If you want to badly enough.
Excuses are for losers! Those who take respon­si­bil­ity for their actions
Are the real win­ners in life.
Win­ners meet life chal­lenges head on
Know­ing there are guar­an­tees, and give it all they’ve got
And never think it’s too late or too early to begin.

Time plays no favorites
And will pass whether you act or not
Take con­trol of your LIFE
Dare to Dream and take risks.……
If you aren’t will­ing to work for your goals
Don’t expect oth­ers to.
