Because Life Happens

Life Hacks – there are so many roads left to Travel.

Life Hacks.   How do you make the most of them.  Do you accept your past as part of your current life stride or do you strive to change the roads you have yet to travel?  Is it fair for one to use where they were born or once lived to excuse them for not being in a better state of place or mind today?

This is a question that came up when a fellow co-worker called to tell me about an incident she had at work with an employee.  Basically it ended with that employee saying that they don’t have something because of where they are from.

That is a slap in the face to anyone who has used that crutch to move forward in life.  It is often said that your past defines you; but does that past control you?

I should think not.

I should hope not.

I know not.

NO one has lived your story but you and at the same time no one can write your story but you.  We have all dealt with some sort of disappointments in our lives and some of those we had no control over but it’s what you do with it that puts you at a better advantage and gives you a bigger stance in life. What is Your Success Story? How does it compare to mine?  So what do you choose to do with your story?

It is imperative for all to know that you cannot continue to blame others for your life choices.  Your parents did the best they could with what they had, go out and get yours and do YOU.

Your life is what you make it.  Understanding and knowing that things may not always go your way and more than not they may not go as you planned them to go but always have a contingency plan.

Plan A, Plan B, Plan C and sometimes even a Plan D can come in handy.  If you let one failure hold you back or shut you down then that is you.

Your situation doesn’t define you, your attitude with handling of that situation does.

So stop blaming your past and everyone else for where you are.

Get yourself together and be a Go-Getter and Get Better for YOU!

Blogging was something that I wanted for my niece. She never followed thru so I started my own. Nothing specific just a lot of general things that I discuss because Life Happens and I talk about it.
