BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018 by John St. Augustine in LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE

“The next time you feel the need to start blaming someone else for whatever experiences you might be experiencing, give your median fibrous septum (the divider that runs down the center of your tongue) a nice, firm clamp. After you do that a few times, you will actually be programming your brain to stop thinking like a victim. It’s the same thing as repeatedly hitting yourself in the head with a hammer until you realize that it hurts and you stop. No matter how strong the urge to fire up the “blamethrower,” hold your tongue until the urge passes. You will be amazed at how quickly “look what happened to me” leaves your vocabulary.”
