Being Responsible


I am responsible for my thoughts, words and behavior.

I choose to respond to others’ thoughts, words and behavior with respect and consideration.

I take responsibility for the quality of my relationships.

I understand and respond with love to those who are calling for love.

Are you Responsible?

Are you responsible to think before you act?

Are you responsible to do what is right and good?

Are you responsible to do no harm to yourself or others?

Are you responsible to keep your agreements?

Are you responsible for your behavior?

Are you responsible for your health?

Are you responsible for living by your principles?

Are you responsible to protect and provide for children?

Are you responsible to bring peace to your world?

Are you responsible to give thanks to those who give to you?

Are you responsible for being kind to your elders and others?

Are you responsible to learn from your live experiences?

Being Responsible is work.

To be responsible is stop our dependency and blame on others.

To be responsible requires that we be conscious, conscientious and follow our conscience.

To be responsible is being willing and able to respond to whatever comes in life.

We are responsible for teaching our children to be responsible for themselves.

We are responsible for the ways we spend money, treat our pets, take care of what we have.

We are responsible for obeying the law, living in integrity, the words we use and the world we live in.

If not us ourselves, who is responsible for all we are, what we do and all we have.

It is both a privilege and responsibility to make our own choices.

We choose what we watch on TV, what we believe and what we buy.

We choose what we continue, what we stop and the changes we make.

We choose how we live and how we love and how we give.

We can blame, shame, criticize and condemn but ultimately we make our own choices.

We are here to learn by what we choose and the consequences we experience.

We are born into a free society where we can live wherever we want by rules we make up.

We have every opportunity to take full responsibility for our lives and learn our own lessons.

Perhaps it is time we understand that people do what they believe will work for them.

People express what they think will be the best to get the results they want.

People can choose to change their mind and learn to do better.

People can apologize for making inappropriate or ignorant choices.

To grow up is to be fully responsible for our choice.

To be mature is to behave in a way that hurts no on and benefits everyone.

To be an adult is to think, speak and act consciously with conscience.

We are responsible when we are willing to respond with wisdom, compassion and kindness.

I wake up, learn and enjoy being responsible for my life choices.

Let us do it together.
