I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.
+++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++
It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.

Learning lessons is a little like reaching maturity. You’re not suddenly more happy, wealthy, or powerful, but you understand the world around you better, and you’re at peace with yourself. Learning life’s lessons is not about making your life perfect, but about seeing life as it was meant to be.

    • Sorry for your loss.
      Thank you for the link, Marian. Losing a loved one is hard. Her stages of grief certainly make it a little easier.

  1. I have to go with #2. As a former nurse before writing full time, I once worked on an oncology ward for five years. KR was read by every nurse and became our Bible for dealing with patients and their families. She was a true pioneer~

    • Excellent choice, Marni. As a pioneer in this field, readers were not always fond of what she wrote, especially as we humans often do not like changes of any kind.

  2. This is one I have lived by. “I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.”

  3. Learning not to look to anyone else to blame for my choices,–or to approve of them–is something I’ve been working on lately, so it was reaffirming to read Kubler-Ross’ quote about being responsible for our own choices.

    • This is something we all have to work on, Eve. Some choices are easy, some are pretty difficult. It is especially important to learn how to break the pattern of choosing ‘the easy way out’ – this can weigh heavily on one’s conscience.
