{Video Blog} Failure, Empowerment and Taking Responsibility

In this video my definition of a mistake is making a decision or taking an action while being out of touch with my broader knowing. A mistake can feel bad because it is an action which is not lined up with who I really am.

    Terri, what would you say was the galvanizing change that you made you improve your relationship situation? I’d really like to know.

      The very biggest change for me is that I stopped acting like a victim of my circumstances. I took my foot out of the door — you know that thing when you have “one foot out the door”? I turned the finger I had been pointing at other people and pointed the finger at me. I took everything that I had tossed in someone else’s lap and put it deliberately and consciously back in mine. I stopped looking at Eric, for instance, as if he had done me wrong, or could ever do me wrong in the future. I decided he was always doing his best and so was I.

      I took responsibility. What a concept. It made all the difference and continues to make all the difference.

      Thank you for asking!

Friday Love: Bam! Gate Breaking, Anyone?

Good Friday, Everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a story about how I accidentally accomplished something on my bucket list. I ran through an exit gate while looking the other way. The hood of my car is scratched up, and one windshield wiper is a mess, but let’s have a good laugh about how we never expect what “getting what we want” includes!

Let me know if you relate…

Enough with the Name-Calling

It seems to be a growing fad these days to call someone a narcissist, or declare they are toxic.
 
Political name-calling is similar—we assign politicians and voters to categories, and brush them off as if they are unintelligent, inferior, or even worthless.
 
By labeling others, we miss their humanity. We gloss over their struggle, their best effort at dealing with life. We dismiss them.
 
We do to them what we believe they are doing to others.
 
Look past a label, and in the soft light of day, there stands a person like you or like me, coping as best they can. At the end of the day, no friend, parent, or lover making conscious choices intends to be mean, or to ignore, or to embellish. There is always more to the story.
 
If we label others, then for sure we label ourselves. We trap ourselves into believing we are less than. Or not enough. Or we don’t give ourselves the time and forgiveness to work through our “stuff.” Maybe, if we stopped accusing others of narcissism, we could forgive ourselves for those moments when we were narrow-minded, inconsiderate, or afraid.
 
When it comes to labels, nobody wins.
 
So, my dear people, I suggest we peer a little deeper into ourselves to investigate a need to separate ourselves from others by tacking them with a label filled with disdain or scorn.
 
It is my wish that you view this video and take it to heart.
 
Much love,
Terri
