Spiritual Idea for May

 Spiritual idea: Now we all can be more Spiritual in our own ways. Everyone has the right to choose how they believe. I do not want to preach to anyone! So my Spiritual Ideas will be ways to be better people that can even fall in to the category of being a good human being and being a productive person in not only your own life, but the lives of other around you.

We all know what values are, we all have grown up learning the difference between right and wrong. We get our values from our parents, school, friends, neighbors, church, media, books, and well in all reality we get our values from all over. What we each individually choose to embrace and add to our personal lives and what means to each of us, is what defines us as individuals, and the people we choose to become.

This month I will cover the value of Responsibility. The definition of Responsibility is 
1. The state, quality, or fact of being responsible.
2. Something for which one is responsible; a duty, obligation, or burden.
We all need to be responsible for not only our lives but the lives of others around us. Not only in our daily lives are we needed and should be responsible, we need to show and teach others how to be responsible. We all hope that our children will be responsible when they grow up. Well they will be if you teach them and guide them on how to become responsible. We all know grown adults who are NOT responsible in any way. Hoping that as people grow up they will ":BECOME" that responsible adult will not happen. It is a learned Value. 
 Take responsibility for your actions. If you are always blaming being late on the driver in the car in front of you, blaming your boss for your troubles at work or blaming your parents for any perceived shortcomings, your children will learn the same behavior. Take a good look at your habits when it comes to taking – or shifting – responsibility.
 Give your kids responsibility. Whether it is doing the laundry, helping with the dinner dishes, taking care of a family pet, or walking to school with a younger sibling or neighbor, it is healthy for kids to develop responsibility at a young age. Make sure they are accountable and reward good behavior with praise and celebration.
 "To decide, to be at the level of choice, is to take responsibility for your life and to be in control of your life".
Abbie M. Dale -
 We all have to take the responsibility of our own lives. This also means that we have to prepare for anything that many come, meaning we have to get our affairs in order. Pay our bills, do the laundry, cook dinner daily things. But this also means that we have to get our emergency kits in order. In the event of an emergency you have to be responsible for family and be able to go 3 days up to two weeks, or longer with out "help", you have to do it no one else will. This means you need to learn a few things you may not know. You have to take the responsibility to do things for yourself. Learn and prepare. Start off little but learn and put things in order for any event that come into your lives. There are many websites, books and videos on the subject.

Responsibility's like a string we can only see the middle of.  Both ends are out of sight.  ~William McFee, Casuals of the Sea, 1916

I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty.  ~John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
