Focus on You

Focus on You

“There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving,
and that’s your own self.”

Aldous Huxley

She wanted to help her son.
She wanted to fix what was wrong, and as she had always done, make it all better.
She wanted to protect him.
She wanted to save him.
But, he didn’t want saving and that broke her heart.

How desperately we want to guide the journey of another that is struggling…
particularly those that we love so much, our family and friends.

But, there is a universal law that so many of us are never taught in physics.
You cannot do it for someone else.
Whatever “it” is, they need to do it themselves.
We each need to go through the process…
living, learning, growing…
and, sometimes hurting.

So many give everything they have trying to improve the life’s journey of another…
and it just doesn’t work….
for either party.

Think about this quote.
Think about how you live, and how you might try to live for others.
Today, remind yourself that YOURS is the only life you have the power (or the right) to change.
