A great WordPress.com site

Check out the fit on these pants.

Check out the fit on these pants.

I like the colour, the material and the colour, but they were way too long.  The pants needed to be shortened if I was going to be able to wear them without tripping.

But…they weren’t getting shortened until I bought them.

Did you get that?

You can’t change anything you don’t own.

Take that out of your pants and apply it to your life…it works there too.

If there’s something in your life you’re not happy with CHANGE it, but that can’t happen as long as the problem is someone else’s.

This is why we can’t change other people – because we don’t own them.  Changing ourselves can sometimes cause them to make changes in themselves, but don’t count on it.

YES! There are nasty people out there and they will do nasty things to you and NO! it’s often not your fault, but (and it’s a big but) at some point, you have to grab your problem by the pants and say “This is MY problem and I’M going to do something about it.”

  • Stop being a victim (or acknowledge that you like the role).
  • Stop complaining about what “THEY” did.
  • Own your pants and get them hemmed so you can stop tripping on them.

  1. Exactly. Nice. And spot on. Post appreciated. 🙂

  2. Fabulous post. I got sick of having to get my pants hemmed, so now I’m wearing more skirts and buying only pants that are the right length. Otherwise, I’m trying to follow all of your advice.

  3. Yes, that definitely sounds like a superior strategy to renting or borrowing pants, because you probably can’t legally hem those unless maybe you get them on a rent-to-own basis.
