Monday's Musing

I love this quote.

"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins." - Bob Moawad

Much food for thought, yes?

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

I love that.

One of the things that bugs me the most is when people blame others for their own situations. This seems to be endemic in our society. I come down really hard on my kids when they pull that ("Well, it's JACOB'S fault, because he..."). I tell them, "You make your own choices and you live with the consequences. Don't ever try to blame anyone else for your problems. You can't fix the situation until you take responsibility for it."

Yeah. I'm that kind of mom. Someday they're going to be telling their therapists all about me.

I like this quote--something I think I will send my soon to be 20 yr old off to college with!
