    I hate blame culture.

    People that look for excuses as why things have not turned out as they expected. A lot of prejudice and racism I believe comes from this. I always like to take responsibility for myself. Get informed and make a decision based on what I believe. If I make a mistake I will hold my...

    One thing I have learned in my half century

    plus one on this planet is that I am more than willing to take responsibility for my actions. They were mine. How could I not? Oh sure there were external factors, circumstances that factored in. There always are. But in the end, the decisions, be they good or bad, were mine.It...

    I rode today for several hours.

    Just took the day off and rode. The sun was warm and it was nice to ride without being all bundled up in leathers. I had a lot on my mind and a lot of mixed feelings about a lot of different things and sometimes it's just good to hop on my scooter and ride and I seem to think...

    I don't always make the best choices I could.

    I mess up like most people. I am embarrassed sometimes by the mistakes I make but I can't hide from the consequences or push blame for things I am responsible for. If I can fix it I do my best to try and if I can't just fix it I do what I can to prevent it again

    I firmly accept responsibility

    for my own actions regardless if they are good or bad. When I say or do something that is unacceptable or hurtful to another, I will reach out and apologize to that person, set the record right, and ask for that person's forgiveness. Yes, I am a Christian and have been for...

    What I do is my business

    and not yours. I fully accept accountability and responsibility for all of my actions. When I make a mistake, major or minor, I am the first one to admit it and correct the situation. Yes, over the years, I have learned from my mistakes so I do not commit them and embarrass...

    Great change brings palpable discomfort.

    Today, I made the statement to be released from my marital status in the most peaceful and constructive way. In anticipation of a rough ride, still I give thanks: orange light turns green -for hope. There is always a solution for everything, under grace. May things turn out...

    I often use the phrase"actions speak louder

    than words" when talking to my sons. I want them to understand that in life, people will often tell you what they think you want to hear, but observing their actions and behavior is often more telling than any phrase. You learn so much by watching the actions, body language and...

    I think I matured a lot

    after my grandmothers passing. Even before her passing, and just after her stroke I feel I became a more responsible person. I had a lot more responsibilities and it wasn't a problem, I loved my grandma and would have done anything for. Since she left us, k continue to strive in...

    A few years ago, as I got out of my car,

    a big gust of wind blew my door into another car. It took me a while to locate the owner. We exchanged info and I paid for the damage. I got a thank you in the mail saying they could not believe that I didn't just leave while I had the chance. Here are the reasons I did not...

    for my own actions. I never want to embarrass my family, friends, co-workers, and employer. I try to live a clean life but without being a prude or a stiff shirt to my kids.

    Not to sound self centered,

    conceited or arrogant, a true lady, like myself, always takes responsibility for her actions, and she also owns up to her mistakes and atones for them.

    My parents still spank.

    If I screw up and the punishment calls for a spanking, then yes I'm going to man up and take it. It doesn't matter what the punishment is, if I screw up, I will man up and take it.

    I take full responsibility for where I am today....In a sexless, loveless, affection-less, marriage. I won't blame him for my 20-years of pain and loneliness because I could have left at any time, and yet I am still here. There are several reasons why I chose to stay over the...

    I thought I was doing the right thing.

    I always thought by helping correct grammar on papers for international students, I was levelling the playing field for them. But, by doing so, for one person, I realized that maybe I was hurting them, after all. They're right, I really am too naive and idealistic for my own...
