Who are you responsible for?

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Ultimately we are only responsible for ourselves.  We may believe it is our job to make sure our children have perfect lives.  We may think it is our job to do for our spouse what we see they need, yet are unwilling to do for themselves.  We may be the best friend to someone else and continually suggest and steer them on their way.  All these kind acts for others to show our generous and compassionate nature.  Yet often this way of being can create reasons and excuses for us not taking ownership and responsibility in our own lives.  Only we can do what is necessary in order to be our best, our fullest expression of our potential, and fulfill our own heart’s desires.  You cannot change another person and make their life what they want it to be.  You do however have the power to change yourself, and make your life what you want it to be.
