Living life and learning lessons in a quest to become the best you can be is what life is all about. I will be the first to admit that I am NOT perfect and I’m still a work in progress. Sometimes I make bad decisions. Sometimes I react too quickly. I’m still learning that even though a reaction may be completely justified, it isn’t always necessary. I also pondered the fact that my reaction to certain situations in my blended family may have played a part in the negative outcome. No matter how justified I was/am in giving someone a good cursing out, maybe the outcome would have been or will be different if I just say nothing. After all, many times words are not necessary as actions speak much louder.
I always say that you can’t control someone else. It doesn’t matter how you feel they should be acting. It’s all about how you react. You can choose to react negatively and make the situation worse or you can react positvely and potentially (a positive outcome isn’t always guaranteed) make the situation better.
It is true that I am a work in progress. There is no harm in that. What really matters is that one is willing to do the work to be the best person that he or she can be. I’m still learning to let go of anger. I’m learning to not allow the negative actions of others to cause me to react negatively. I’m learning to react calmly. I’m learning to let God lead. I’m still learning!
