Did everything on your own? No such thing

Health Old Post
Something I have learned through my parents, educators, siblings, friends and foes…is that…I cannot say I have done everything on my own… who I am, how I think, my built, my emotional capacity and my will…are just a part of it.

With that, educate yourself, be kind and always acknowledge the pathways that lead you where you are at now…you did not do everything on your own, no such thing. You where never alone, I bet there was always someone in your pathway guiding you. Even when YOU THOUGHT no one was there for you, the fact that those people where “not there” for you was part of them being there for you now.

Think about it. If it where not for the people in your life, you would not be where you are at now, even if they where or where not what you EXPECTED them to be. You can always ask them to be though, its their choice if they choose not to be that in your life, at least you asked. So Acknowledge them…name by name, bless them and life will do the same.

Always remember this the next time you feel like you are doing everything on your own… There is no such thing. Even the food you bought came from somewhere and was handled by someone else. Thank Them the next time you say no one was there for you. Because unless you are your own farmer/hunter you did not go out there and farm/hunt your own meal.

Have a wonderful morning. 🙂

Smile (if you want)

  1. Awesome reminder! In my early 20s I had the big panties to think that I had done a lot (not everything) on my own. I think when I had two then three kids I realized how much my parents helped shape the person I had become AND helped me get to where I was.

  2. Great post! I often say, that no one motivates me to do what I do. But I know that’s not true. Everything I have overcome is because of the support of my family. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. What a terrific and important reminder for those of us who believe we are Wonder Woman doing it all alone, while defying gravity and expectations, which is something that we can fall into when it’s just faster/easier/I’m an island mentality sets in. One way I achieve this is by asking/acknowledging help but as crucially giving thanks for my blessings–and there are many all around. Sometimes you have to look and not just see…
