Today’s mantra comes from Tony Robbins who said, “If you’re going to blame people for the bad, then you better blame them for the good too… cause life is not so simple and black and white.” It’s a thought that I consider in life because it’s important to see things from other people’s point of view. Most situations fall in grayscale. There are a lot of factors that affect different things.
While blaming someone is never the answer, I do think that people can be responsible for the good that comes in life. Bad things happen and good things come and go, but everything is better when there are people to share things with. If things are going badly, it helps to surround yourself with people who support and love you. If things are going well, it’s always happier to share these moments. Life isn’t black and white, and it’s more colorful when you have people to share it with.
With mercury recently being in retrograde and having a few days that felt a bit off, I remembered something I read that said that there could be no calm without chaos. Sometimes things have to be bad before they can be good.
The silver lining is that when bad things happen, there is change. When something goes wrong, you focus and learn how to make it right. Chaos can be a catalyst for change. This perspective has given me peace of mind when I feel like things are getting difficult or hard to manage. Change is good. Change means improvement, and change means growth. Next time you’re feeling like disaster has struck or something has gone wrong, know that something good is to come soon after.
