“Every man is the architect of his own life. He builds it just the way he wants it. However, after he has built what he wants, he sometimes decides that he doesn’t like what he has built and looks for someone or something to blame instead of changing himself.”
Poetry, prose, and quotes often have different meanings or interpretations based on the reader’s life experiences. Below, I have offered my initial inference of what the words above mean to me. Please feel free to leave yours in the comments section so that other readers might realize a more diverse interpretation. (The context in which the words may have been originally presented, and by whom, are not the primary issues, just what the words might mean to us, or for us, individually, in the now.)
My interpretation of this quote: There is no one to blame but our self if we are not satisfied with the results we have attained so far in life. We are responsible for our choices. We, also, are the only ones who can change course and create more satisfactory results …if we’re willing to do what it takes.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
