Don’t shoot the Navigator…

Slight adaptation of the well known saying there but its meaning is still the same. 

Sometimes things don’t go the way we hoped or planned. Sometimes we feel hard done by and even angry by the actions or perceived inactions of others. 

Fair enough but don’t shoot the Navigator. 

The ownus is still on you. You are responsible for your actions and by extension the way people act around/to you. The same is true of  the other person or people involved. 

When I find myself upset, angry or feeling hard done by I have to check myself and reflect on how I might be contributing to how I feel and address it. Pointing the finger of blame only breeds contempt and there’s enough of that in this world already. 

If you’re not happy. Change. 

If you’re feeling like you’re not making progress. Take a step back. Evaluate and take another step. 

If you’re feeling angry. Breathe. Reflect and chill the f*ck out. 

What I’m saying is; it all starts and ends with you. 

I know what I’ll be doing today.
