Hope you’re well!
Loving YLD so far! Just a quick question, in the week 2 Learning and Reflection booklet when you ask us to list ‘What we are taking responsibility for, could you give an example please? I’m not sure which direction to tackle this one from.
This is an opportunity to see where in your life you are taking responsibility / ownership and being intentional about how you live. It may be your weight, your career, your parenting, mental health, your personal development, your housekeeping…we all tend to take responsibility in some areas and not others – seeing where in your life you are intentional and manage your mind allows you to see why you manage this in some areas and not others, and how you can use this to help you better manage yourself in those areas where you are challenged. For me I found myself a few years ago in a spot where I took 100% responsibility for my health/weight/diet and career, but I wasn’t taking 100% responsibility for my relationships – i often blamed others for how I felt. I saw that when it came to health I was able to mange the desire to indulge, lay in bed, not eat well, but in interactions with others I wasn’t as good at managing the desire to blame, play victim, look for the problems and ignore the good.
Look for where you are rocking it and ask yourself why? What is different about this area of your life and others? What is the motivation for taking responsibility in this area?
