There is No Blame!

I release the need to blame anyone, including myself. We are all doing the best we can with the understanding, knowledge, and awareness we have. I have a box of Power Thought Cards by Louise Hay. Each card has an affirmation written on it. These affirmations help to find inner strenght in oneself. This is the card I drew randomly today. I have been thinking about this statement "There is No Blame" throughout the day and I have realized that I do a lot of blaming in my life. The person I blame mostly is myself. I blame myself for why I don't have a lot of money, why I struggle to pay bills, why I am overweight, why my middle son doesn't do very well in school etc.. But as I dig deeper into the explanation of the statement "There is no blame" I realize that everything I do in life I do to the best of my ability. I have a lot to be grateful for. I have a nice home. I am surrounded by a loving family. I have the best husband on earth. I have been blessed with 3 wonderful and healthy children. My husband and I have great jobs that pay well. I work hard everyday to keep my family safe and happy. Sometimes things don't work out the way I planned, but I no longer blame myself. Everything I do, I do with the best intensions and with love. Does anyone else have any other insight to this?
