We have met the enemy and he is us

That famous quote from the Pogo comic strip was referring to pollution, illustrated by litter in the Okefenokee swamp. I have often found my life littered with debris, debts piling up, deadlines fast approaching, projects unfinished because something else came up, disappointments, hurt feelings, resentments. Of course it was very evident this was all due to things other people had or hadn’t done.
Unfortunately, blaming others never makes the mess go away. The only solution I’ve ever found is to tell God, “Yes, this is my mess. I made it all by myself, nobody helped me. Please help me find my way out.” And He always does. It’s really just a matter of admitting who is the true enemy of my happiness. It’s always me.
