There is something to be said about accountability. Many times in my life I have appreciated having friends and family that I knew I could turn too.....I could count on them to be there for me. I like to think that I possess this very important quality myself. I have hope that when people in my life need me....I'm there. I am steady, and predictable. If I say, I will be there....I will. Most importantly, when I arrive, I will be who I say I am. I will not disappoint you. That is my mission.
As much as I strive to be accountable to others, I even more so need to be accountable to myself. I am in charge of my life. I have the power to make it what I want. I can choose....I can decide....I can. I CAN!!!
All too often, I see people letting life HAPPEN to them. They walk along feeling like the victim in their own story. I do not fully understand this mind set, and I struggle when people I love are obviously struggling greatly, and actively blaming everyone, and everything, but themselves. Yes, it is true that bad things can happen (and they do), but we need to be in charge of what we do about it, and how we move on. It is my belief that it all comes down to this:
This is YOUR life! My question is.....Are you IN, or are you OUT?
