Living With Accountability

We all need to take responsibility for what we do and what we say. I thought about this while watching a show about real estate earlier this week. A couple were looking into buying their first home. The husband says, "Not only do I have recent bankruptcy, but I'm in debt as well. But, this is what I can afford." And the real estate agent shows them a fix-er-upper, now only does the couple need to come up with the payment, but now they need money to fix up the place. Does that make any kind of sense??? The guy is in debt. But, it represents alot of people in America, buying when they can't afford it. Heck, I was guilty of it myself once. But, I took responsibility and said, "why was I putting myself through this every single month, I deserved better." It's all about taking accountability for the decisions that are made every single day. I think if all of us take responsibility for our decisions and actions we would be a much better world.

And, remember LIFE is still good and each of us can make it better!!! As former President Woodrow Wilson said, "We are not here merely to make a living. We are here to enrich the world."

I is easy to blame but we all should take a close look at ourselves and do our part. Nice one Rosy! Thanks!

I agree people need to be accountable and live within their means.

Yes and people have to realize that there is nothing wrong with renting. Especially around here where rents, although still sky-high, are usually half than what your monthly mortgage payment would be.

Good post!!! Happy Holidays to you:-)

Great comments. We have an entire generation of young people that seemingly cannot come to terms with personal accountability. Hopefully, we can still help. Blogs like yours cannot hurt. Keep up the good work!
