Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more
I have been thinking about the words responsibility and opportunity for a few weeks. Too often we operate under the banner of responsibility. Responsibility is not an inviting word, it does not lead me to go above and beyond what I am responsible for.
Life is funny, isn't it? Full of incredible opportunities, but they aren't always feasible. It seems once you have children, become a home owner, have a job, get married, or have a friend, the most common struggles we all face is walking this fine line between opportunity and responsibility.
Instead of viewing events and people in my life as responsibilities I want to view them as opportunities. It is not my responsibility to provide love and care for my family or clean my house . It is my opportunity. It is not drudgery, it is opportunity.
Every thing in life brings with it responsibilities and opportunities, the trick is to find the balance.
God writes opportunity on one side of the door and responsibility on the other
Sometimes, responsibility does have to win over opportunity. In the meantime, I think I've earned another chocolate Easter egg!
Have a fantastic Friday everyone!
