If you have read a few of my blogs, you may have noticed a trend. Ima “pro-active” kinda gal, and talk about things that I want to change in my life.
Its stuff that I can change. Not someone else.
People are kinda unpredictable….it only took me 27 years to learn that one. Its important to be vulnerable and engage in relationships, but if you want real change in your life…
you have to change something YOU do.
It would be really cool if the world rotated around you an me, and everything we wanted was delivered to us by the people in our lives. But that’s not going to happen. And it shouldn’t. Because that’s not a fair position to put anyone in.
What you can do
If you need more friends, BE a friend. Don’t tally up how many times someone text you this month, and complain about it to other people if it doesn’t meet your standard. That’s not their problem, its yours. Think about picking up the phone and YOU calling or texting. Be the friend that you want to have. People are not out to get you.
If you have a new project idea and have been waiting on the right people and circumstances to carry the load with you….I understand. Its VERY hard venturing out into things you don’t know anything about. But people don’t really jump on board to things until they see it moving. Take action, even if you do it alone.
And give people the benefit of the doubt. When you give someone the benefit of the doubt…it says ALOT more about your own character than it does theirs. Don’t always believe the worst in people- give them the same grace that you want extended to you.
I complain. I would be lying if I said I didn’t. But its like eating a Ding Dong. We are all going to have a weak day and eat the thing…..but eventually it will get to you. It will take over your life and you will be miserable.
Griping about circumstances or people does nothing to change anything….except make people wanna run away from you. And make you want to eat another Ding Dong.
People aren’t put on this world to make us happy.
They will….when we share life together, but realize that your happiness and purpose come from you and Jesus workin’ together…..on you.
Your life is to precious and too short to waste it. Be the best YOU can be….and take the pressure off others to preform for you. Be the change you want to see.
