Conscious Living

Response-Ability is Freedom

Posted on: August 26, 2011

On Oprah’s last show, one of the most important lessons she wanted to leave with her audience was that each of us is 100% responsible for creating our own lives.  Not our parents, not our boss, not someone who did something or said something to us last year or last week.  And when we REALLY GET THIS, really, really GET THIS, then we will feel incredibly free. Free to respond how we choose in every moment and free to design our lives the way we really want them to be.

It’s my response-ability, my ability to respond to whatever the universe is blessing me with and/or challenging me with in any moment that shifts power in my direction. I am no longer at the effect of someone or something but am standing in my own creative space.

Try it out.  The next time you find yourself blaming someone or something for whatever your predicament, try this on:  “It’s true, this has happened.  I can’t control everything that happens to me or around me.  But, I do get to choose how I want to respond.  Do I want to live my life as a victim? What kind of person do I want to be?  What kind of life do I want to have?  My response is my power to create my life in my own way.  So, what do I want to do or say; how do I want to act?”

Can you feel the power in expanding your response-ability?
