It’s All Your Fault

I read a blog this morning that said everything negative happening to me is my fault.

I say “Heifer Dung”!

I understand that I have to take responsibility for my actions and thoughts but…it’s way more fun to blame everything on YOU! Or THEM!

Maybe it would be more fun to investigate, do the detective thing, to find out what made things wrong. We know about genetics now so we get to blame our parents and ancestors for all our physical stuff. Why am I fat? My Mom made me? Why do I have old hands? (Seriously, they were never those plump, dimpled things but huge and veiny.) My Nana? How about my holy moles? Gee, thanks, Dad. And really bad skin that started out as acne vulgaris in my teens and now is just plain – well – plain with a tendency to rosacea? The nation of Scotland? Hell, yeah, this is working for me. And the sarcasm, who can I blame for that? Mom, Dad? Thanks so much! (I really do mean thanks, I love being sarcastic even if it is anger wrapped in humour. Even my kids like that one! )

Whoever won the lottery last night, it’s your fault I didn’t! It’s the health authority’s fault my hip isn’t fixed. Ok, I want to know who is responsible for time. That’s right – TIME! It’s your fault I’m getting older. And who gave me this brain? Nature and nurture? I should sue!!!!!!

“We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.”
Katharine Hepburn

OK! I can take a good lesson from Katherine Hepburn, I trust her more than Tony Robbins. It is how you look at things. What direction you take and the idea of having a goal(s) or destination in mind before you start are essential to success. I love just cruising along and stopping where ever I want to but it does help to have a deadline or home to back to. Yep, I said success. It’s not my fault that most people seek success without defining what it will look like. What success looks like is different to a cat than it does to a dog. I do count my blessing. Blessings are someone’s fault, too, and I’ll thank you all for those.

I will begin to list by self beliefs, but not for you today. I Will make them all positive. It may be a short list (I’m joking – sarcasm!). Karma is biting me on the bum again so  will look for the lessons. Or maybe I’ll sue karma – yeah that sounds like a good direction and goal.

“Everything was my fault. I was so dumb. But if I hadn’t made the mistakes I made, I wouldn’t have met the wonderful woman I’ve been married to for over 30 years, so I guess that makes the mistakes OK.”
Donald Sutherland

Thanks for listening – that was your fault! ;D Diane
