Don’t look for excuses or blame others. Just as world-class athletes must take charge of their training, so must we take charge of our own lives. We are responsible for the choices we make. Don’t get in the habit of blaming others. Your life is yours. Be grateful for the opportunities you have been given and take charge.
Gilbert W. Fellingham, "Six Rules for Success", BYU Speeches, November 9, 2021
Right now, I have a tendency to put the blame on someone or something else because of the way I'm feeling right now. Fact is, this is just something I have to deal with and to get through.
It's funny how everything aligns in your life, leading up to the moment that is happening right now. That's why it's crucial to make smart and correct decisions now, either spiritually or physically, so we aren't paying the difficult price later.
I'm not saying that everything that happens to us is because of a decision we made somewhere along the way, but every moment is a sum of every other moment.
