I am fully and totally responsible for being my best Self.
I am delighted to learn better ways to live, love, give and be happy.
I trust myself to take impeccable care of me.
I value all I am, have, do and give.

Essential Responsibility

You will love yourself when you are responsible.
You will respect yourself when you are responsible.
You will trust yourself when you are responsible.
You will believe in yourself when you are responsible.

Most people do not want or accept responsibility for their lives.
Many people have never known what it means to be responsible.
Often people have no role models for honest responsibility.
Kids and adults are not shown the freedom and joy of being responsible.

Are you responsible?
Do you lean on someone else to make you feel good?
Do you rely on someone else to keep you healthy and happy?
Are you aware of the areas of dependency in your life?
Can you imagine taking 100% care of your safety and well-being?

Do you plan, purchase and prepare your own meals?
Are you the one who makes your own best and cleans up your room?
Do you manage your money, savings, expenditures, budget and earning?
Are you able to take care of your home, clothing, organization and affairs?

When we are responsible for ourselves, we feel capable and confident.
When we are managing our daily scheduling of time and activities, we feel secure.
When we communicate with respect and gratitude with others, we feel at peace.
When we clear up mistakes and misunderstandings, we feet satisfied.

When we say what we mean and do what we say, we are living in integrity.
When we eat well and sleep well and treat others well, we are being responsible.
When we drop addictive behavior and have real pleasure in creativity and contribution, we feel worthy.
When we heal and clear past conscious and unconscious errors and incompletions, we feel whole.

Be responsible for yourself.
Take impeccable care of yourself and all your affairs.
Appreciate the ways you create goodness and wholeness.
Honor the beauty you express with your thoughts, words and deeds.

If you have not learned to be wholly responsible, begin now to learn.
Start with the basics.
Relinquish dependency on others to do for you.
When you are living in harmony, you will keep your whole life in order.

Basics of being responsible.
Make your own bed and keep your room clean.
Plan and prepare healthy meals daily for yourself and your family.
Take out the garbage in your life daily. (Release criticism, pain, negative thoughts and emotions, too.)
Handle all your earning, contributions, expenditures, savings and taxes responsibly.
Treat your communications with respect and respond quickly with a generosity of spirit.
Be willing to apologize and correct all mistakes quickly and easily.
Take responsibility without guilt or blame for your problems and emotional distress.

You are on your way to learning the art of being responsible and feeling trust and freedom.

Appreciating us all in growing into responsible, contributing, capable adults.
