This month, Words that Shine tackles the question of who is responsible? Or who is accountable?
The words responsibility and accountability usually pertain to control, blame and duty. For legal, moral and ethical issues they help define wrong or right behaviour. This picture below of many steps leading to the Courthouse gives a great example of our walk with accountability and responsibility.
Judgement and justice come from the hands of time. Responsibility and accountability is a life sentence.
The world stage brings issues of political correctness, global climate change, cultural and religious views, gender equality and society’s expectations.
At a personal level where do your responsibilities lie? Who is responsible for your own wellbeing?
What about your health and fitness, your actions, thoughts, emotions also your spiritual welfare?Lifestyle, finances, family, friends, work and the wider community all form the path and steps of your responsibility and accountability.
Your life is your responsibility, take control and own it. Serve your accountability with honour and courage. What a privilege it is to leave your footprint in this world.
Through Words that Shine I encourage you to lift your head high and step up to your life’s sentence of responsibility and accountability. Love it and live it with vigour and honour.
Living life with passion
