Homegrown Values 7 - Responsibility

Being responsible means taking our rightful place in God's Family. It means caring for one another, caring for our environment and all other creatures. 

Responsibility means doing our share - in the family and in our world. It means helping others when they need help and caring for others who are unable to care for themselves. 

Being responsible is doing things with integrity and living a life you can be proud of. 

A responsible role model shows the way of a life filled with integrity and led by values. 
Responsibility is not always easy, especially if we've made difficult choices. But each day is a new opportunity. When we are out of alignment, we must forgive and choose again. There are no mistakes, just learning opportunities. We find when we step up to the plate, take responsibility, life takes on new meaning. And we and then filled with hope and renewal. 

Talk about responsibility with your child today. Focus on the positive aspects, taking it out of the thought pattern of 'what else do I have to do?' Responsibility comes from a place of love and caring... what we all have already inside. 

Have a wonderful day my friends!
Love, Mellisa
