What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love - Your life will keep sending you experiences designed to get your attention.

I am convinced that I can change my mind and change my world - Rev Dr.
Barbara King

Your life is a reflection of you. Everything that is coming at you from out
there is coming to show you where work is required on yourself. As you shake your head no and point at all the people you can blame for
what is going on with you, you miss another divine opportunity to examine what is really on within you. Until you are willing to accept total and complete responsibility for every aspect of your life, your life will keep sending you experiences designed to get your attention.

It can be difficult to acknowledge your role in the annoying little messes
and great big disasters in your life. No one likes to take the blame Quite often we confuse accepting responsibility for bearing the blame. When
you are the one to blame, it means you are somehow at fault - and must be punished. To avoid punishment, we look for someone else to put the blame on. In doing so we miss an opportunity for self-correction Rather than looking for someone to blame, think about who is responsible

Accepting responsibility means examining the choices made A choice is usually made in reaction or response to some sort of stimulation. The outcome reveals what kind of choice was made When you are trying to escape blame and punishment, the outcome will lead you to speak about others. When you are willing to accept responsibility for your choices, the outcome leads you to self-evaluation and self-correction.
