The Choice of Responsibility

Your life is your responsibility.

Responsibility has such a negative connotation. I think we equate it to doing chores or finishing our homework when you growing up. But really I think must of us just dislike others telling us what to do. (... am I the only one?) Being responsible is actually fantastic, and makes smooth sailing in areas of life where most sink. The difference is between this type of responsibility and the responsibility of our younger selves is choice. We choose what we want to be responsible for with our actions.


It’s not a burden to bear or a burden on others. It’s a CHOICE:

To go on living an unsatisfied life,
Or live to be ALIVE!

No matter the circumstance you’ve been through or going through, you have the power to lift yourself up. All you have to do is choose.
To be better. To choose a little better each day.
And then go from there.

Put every decision going forward in that perspective.

If it doesn’t align to who you are and want to be, it doesn’t work.

Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
And wherever you are, keep smiling :)
