"No one saves us but outselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path."
People often look outside themselves for something or someone to save them or change their situation. While it is fine to get information or assistance, the decision of what to do and how to do it remains with you. It is ultimately your journey in this life and no one else can take it for you. Pretending you are not responsible for your life keeps you stuck waiting for a rescuer that cannot save you. It keeps you a victim. To save yourself you have to take your own action.
This week: Look at your life honestly. Are you waiting for someone else to tell you what to do? Are you waiting for someone or something to happen to allow you to move forward? If so, look inside. Challenge yourself. Ask yourself if you are hoping someone else will do the hard work for you? Are you hoping someone else can/will save you? If so, make a decision that you can and will do it yourself. Find one small thing you can do that will orient you toward solving your problem. It doesn't have to be big. Relegate others to being your support or your consultants, but stop expecting them to fix things for you. It is your path to walk and you CAN do it!
