Can you stand alone and look at all you have around you and see your part in bringing it all together, without blaming anyone or any circumstance, recognizing the choices you made to make it what it is?
Being accountable for the things that happen in your life, for the people you chose to share it with is frightening. And at first, you may even panic. You may get a little depressed at what you see. But if you go with that, go with where those feelings take you, a spark of hope will arise. It is the realization that you were powerful enough to create all of that in the first place.
And so, you can make something different. You can change, alter, include, exclude whatever you want. Some things may cooperate. Somethings may not. And that is a sign. Stop getting in the way and let go of the things that do not ring true with your individual evolutionary impulse (a phrase coined by Eckhart Tolle in THE POWER OF NOW).
It is never to late.
There is always hope.
Changing your thoughts and how you feel about things and people, altering your perspective is a gradual process, but it can be done. Be kind to yourself and practice, work at it every day like you would a muscle until the habit of viewing all the possibilities becomes stronger.
