“I’ve never seen any life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question finally getting tired of their own bullsh*t.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

We all do it.

We say want one thing, then do the complete opposite to get it.

Or we blame all of our problems on another person, knowing full well that we’re the problem.

We repeat the same stories in our lives over and over again, wondering why we never manifest something different, yet we aren’t willing to try anything new to get it.

Until someone calls us out on our part in all of this.

They’re bold enough to remind us how we contribute to the unhealthy relationships we’re in, the things we’re not doing to lose the weight or the half-truths we’re telling ourselves and anyone else who will listen to our excuses for why we can’t hold down a steady job or get ourselves out of debt.

I think most of us know, deep down, that we are partially to blame for the predicaments we find ourselves in. But it takes an incredibly brave person to own this. Most of us have played the avoidance game with ourselves for so long that it’s become the norm. And sometimes we’re unconscious of our own behavior.

I’m this person. The one calling everyone out on their bullsh*t all the time.

I know I can be tough. But I’m equally tough on myself. I can bullsh*t with the best of them, but I’m quickly learning how to call myself out when I see it happening.
