Own It!

George Carlin used to have a routine that described driving on the highway. All the people going slower than him were morons and those going faster were maniacs. It was one of his better (and cleaner) routines that reminds me that we can all rationalize where we stand on issues, what we say, how we act. Everyone else must be wrong, it couldn’t possibly be us!

We make mistakes that we’re too afraid or too proud to admit, so we rationalize and justify. We make choices that lead down the wrong path so we rationalize. We do things that we know we shouldn’t and we, again, rationalize them away. We can always blame circumstance, those surrounding us, our backgrounds, our feelings of fairness or entitlement, but none of those hold water. None of those are accurate, adequate or even pertinent. How can we expect others to be reliable if we can’t be honest with ourselves and accountable for our own mistakes and actions. The changes we need to make for this morally down-spiraling world to become a better place starts with us….one person at a time, one day at a time. Why not start fresh today by not rationalizing your actions and words? Make the right ones and then step up and own them!

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” Heb 4:13
