Father's Day

Written by Dr. Dorree Lynn

Continued from page 1

My mother never understoodrepparttar specialness of these outings. Actually, neither of my parentís did. She knew I was away forrepparttar 126291 day and therefore I was not underfoot. And, he had a companion, notrepparttar 126292 son he wanted, but I didrepparttar 126293 best I could to give himrepparttar 126294 joy he wished for. Baseball became our bond as it also became part of my lifeblood.

Fatherís Day, 2001 years after both my parentís death: They are gone but baseball is still with me. The guys in my psychotherapy practice are often surprised at how much I know and how passionate I get discussingrepparttar 126295 game. We wander into discussions of how muchrepparttar 126296 game has changed. We debaterepparttar 126297 appropriateness ofrepparttar 126298 playerís now mega salaries. We argue plays and groan or applaud a home run. The men who have entrusted their lives to my professional skills and I bond. I have my dadís baseball education to thank for that ability. I could never berepparttar 126299 son he wanted. I havenít forgottenrepparttar 126300 pain of always knowing that. But, forrepparttar 126301 now grownup grandmother who as a small girl tried to be what her dad wanted, baseball remains. I am grateful for that gift.

Life is too hard to do alone,

YOU are in control! YOU are responsible!

Continued from page 1

The point I'm making is that you have complete control over your results (except for unforeseen natural disasters). You have complete control over your future and you have complete control over your mind.

Another thing I have discovered from my years in business; is that in order have complete control over your mind, you first have to take full responsibility forrepparttar results you get in life.

When something happens to you, take full responsibility.

The problem is this. It is easy to blame any and everyone, or everything else for our plight in life.

It's circumstances beyond my control. Oh Really?

It'srepparttar 126290 government's fault. Oh Really??

The economy is to blame. Oh Really???

It'srepparttar 126291 boss's fault. Oh Really????

It's everyone else's fault. Oh Really????? Don't depend on events outside of you to providerepparttar 126292 happiness in your life. Get over blamingrepparttar 126293 world around you. Get over guilt. Get over resentment. Concentrate on getting your act together. Take control and take full responsibility.


Every day is a new day. Don't letrepparttar 126294 past controlrepparttar 126295 future. Forgive others and forgive yourself for whatever may have happened inrepparttar 126296 past. Get over it... it's done with... let go. Think aboutrepparttar 126297 present and focus onrepparttar 126298 future. Tomorrow isrepparttar 126299 first day ofrepparttar 126300 rest of your life. YOU are in control. YOU are responsible.
