When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and arguments. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding.

Change Begins Today.

“What parts of yourself have you been unable or unwilling to own that you know you need to in order to find happiness? Where have your secrets been putting distance between you and those you love? Have you let your ego, cravings, addictions, and selfishness get in the way of what’s really important in your life? Then change it, right now.”
