If It’s going to be, it’s up to me.

BLOG #1 – Dec. 20.09

A favourite refrain of a preacher in Garden Grove, California, was: “If it’s going to be, it’s up to me.” This means that whatever it is we hope to make of our lives, we have to take the first step in getting our show on the road. As we journey through life, there may be many who will assist us to achieve the goals we set for ourselves. Nobody can live our lives for us. Even if we get assistance, we must take the ultimate responsibility for the outcome – we cannot expect anyone else to assume this for us. Those of us who are closer to the end of our journey than the beginning, realize that help is more beneficial when we know the direction we want to take. The world cannot help us achieve what we want, if we have not yet decided what that is.
