A Toast to Responsibility

Kitty Hard at Work

“Eventually we all have to accept full and total responsibility for our actions, everything we have done, and have not done.” — Hubert Selby Jr.

How many times have you wanted someone else to take care of a problem you did not want to deal with? When we were children, we never appreciated our caretakers for all things they took care of for us. Ah, to be a child again and have someone else be the adult. Life would be so much easier if someone else did the laundry, washed the dishes, cleaned the house, do the grocery shopping, pay the bills, walk the dog, clean the litter box, and supplied us with a constant flow of money. What a nice fantasy!

The reality is we were put on the planet Earth to learn lessons to grow personally and spiritually; in order to do that we need to be responsible. This is not an easy asset for most people to acquire. There are far more irresponsible people than responsible. Let us take a look at how this affects our lives.

Education is important for us to move ahead in society, if we goof off in school, succumb to peer pressure, or neglect our grades; our result is not passing and staying back. We may end up not getting into college or working at a low paying job, which ripples out to every aspect of our life. Our education does not end in school, I know many highly educated people who do not have common sense and are closed minded.

Humans need to continue to educate themselves as long they live. It is our responsibility to keep learning to understand what our truth is from other’s beliefs. We do this by gathering as much information about a subject to fully comprehend it. Why should we do this? To find out if we should sign that contract, moved to that city, or believe in your religion. Whatever the subject is, know that the truth will set you free.

Finances are a major factor in everyone’s life, even rich people. I get a ton of money questions in my reading for clients. The energy of money represents our security in our lives and it is oh, so easy to get out of balance. There are many people declaring bankruptcy because of student loans, medical bills, and/or credit cards. Some people get bills, let them pile up, and hide from credit collectors.

Whatever your current state of financial affairs are, it is always important to educate yourself, and take responsibility. Are you in debt? Instead of sticking those bills in a drawer, investigate what your options are. Take a deep breathe, pray, pick up your phone, and call the person or company you owe money to., It is important to speak to them in a calm, kind, and firm manner when making payment arrangements. The majority of places will work with you. Once you make those arrangements, you must take responsibility and honor them. It is such a wonderful feeling when a debt is clear.

Did you get a windfall of money or are you comfortable with your finances? Congratulations, now is the time to be responsible, save some, invest some, or buy a home. The one thing I would like everyone to study is the law of attraction. When you learn about how your thoughts and feelings affect you, it will be easier to manifest abundance into your life.

Health is a gift from God and must be taken care of. It is irresponsible to think that you can abuse your body without repercussions. Good health makes you feel and look better, which is a wonderful motivator to keep you responsible about your health. You are the one who is in charge of bathing, brushing your teeth, getting enough sleep, and exercise. The choices you make today will affect your future health.

The saying “You are what you eat” is so true. Let’s face it, food is expensive and it is so tempting to buy cheaper food. And when we are on the go to eat at fast food restaurants. We think we are taking care of our finances and busy lives this way. The truth is we as a society, are creating more health crisis that may not appear today, but later in life. The money we are saving now will be needed for future health bills. In reality, we are creating more debt with our poor food choices.

So what can you do? Here is where education comes in when it comes to food. Look at the ingredients on the labels, if you don’t understand what the most of them are, why are you eating it? Instead, eat real food like fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, meats, and nuts. Do your best to steer away from foods that are filled with sugar, salt, and GMOs. You are better off with dairy, chicken, and meats that are not filled with antibiotics and hormones. In other word, eat as much organic as you can. Everybody is different when it comes to food, educate yourself on what is right for you.

The other thing to educate yourself when it comes to your health is in the medical field. It is important to get checkups, but always get a second opinion if a doctor says something is wrong with you. It is always a must to investigate medicine and medical procedures instead of blindly agreeing to it. Doctors are educated in medical schools, however, they are rarely educated in diet or alternative health care. Your diet may be lacking certain minerals or vitamins that is affecting your health. Or a chiropractor and massage therapist could help you, instead of back surgery.

Are you wondering why a relationship expert is writing about being responsible in education, finances, and health? You will attract the type of mate according to where you are in life. If you are uneducated, poor, and/or unhealthy it is very unlikely that a person who is educated, rich, and healthy would want anything to do with you. Be all that you can be to attract a wonderful mate. For those of you that are in a relationship, think about how money and health issue influence your relationship. That is where education comes in, knowledge is power. The knowledge of how to move forward with any problem makes life easier.

I wish everyone great health, increasing finances, and higher education!
