Don’t we all own our lives?
Well, to some degree, yes. But many of us hand over our power to others, rather than owning it ourselves.
Why would anyone do that?
Well, I’m sure we’ve all done it from time to time. Some more than others. Sometimes it’s just easier. The path of least resistance.
Plus, if we give away our power, the mistakes are someone else’s not ours…or are they?
I guess that’s one of the scariest things about truly taking ownership of one’s life. If we make mistakes, they’re ours. Even scarier if the mistakes are doozies. Life altering mistakes that may fill us with loss or regret.
But it’s worth the risk, because when you own the flaws, you own the joys and successes too. And those will be even sweeter when we realize that we lived our life on our own terms.
While it may be scary to make the choice to take ownership of our life, it’s really the only way to truly thrive and live a rich, authentic existence.
So have at it. Own your life!
