Take your life in your own hands and what happens? A terrible thing: no one is to blame. 

Erica Jong

January 25th - no blame

Don’t blame others when something goes wrong. Don’t blame yourself endlessly, either. Just find ways to do it differently next time. 

 Karin Ireland

It is a waste of time trying to place blame.  We could put that time to better use. If you’ve made a mistake, just move on and try to correct and remember what happened so you don’t do it again.  

Beginning again isn’t easy, but builds hope for the future and puts the past where it belongs.  New beginnings means that we find different ways of doing things.  What was left behind didn’t work, so different means are needed to carry us forward.

From now on…my life is going to be filled to over flowing with new happenings, a new way of doing things and a new way of looking at life.

Looking at life anew will bring some unsettling times, times of peace and times of challenge.  I’m open and ready to embrace them.

We shouldn't place blame where no one is at fault, but we can start new every morning.

Our task is not to fix the blame for the past, but to fix the course for the future.

John F. Kennedy



GREAT quotes throughout your entire post. Love the first one, but also love the last one by Kennedy. " Our task is not to fix the blame for the past, but to fix the course for the future."

So true not to assess blame, but to move on and try not to make that same mistake again. Each day is a gift and we need to use and appreciate that gift wisely :)

JFK's comment fits nicely into a good post.
We seem to have been conditioned by our Government. Seems if an agency can find someone or something to blame, all is well. NOT SO IN EVERY DAY LIFE.

Oh yes. On my new book. It is about losing a parent to death rather than divorce. How the son faces the loss of a parent. I like 'oh Johnny, Oh Johnny etc.' ;-).

That first Charles Spurgeon quote is so timely! From 2:30-ish this morning, I lay awake obsessing over every little thing out of my control.
... and today I feel emptied of my strength. Of course.
You think by now, I'd learn?
