For the past couple of weeks I've been thinking about responsibility and what it means in my life. The definition of responsibility according to The Miriam-Webster Dictionary is broken up into three parts:

  • the state of being the person who caused something to happen;

  • a duty or task that you are required or expected to do;

  • something that you should do because it is morally right, legally required, etc.

I haven't really thought much about the first part, however, I have been pondering the second two parts. How responsibility pertains to what I need to do around the house, what is expected of me at work, and what my family and friends expect of me. I have also been thinking about what I expect of my peers and how what I do at home affects my life.

On the surface I can feel the weight of my responsibilities pulling me in this direction and that. Sometimes feeling that I am excelling in one area and failing in another. I don't necessarily think that I am doing terrible, but I could improve in some of the areas I mentioned above and keep moving forward in others.

This week I want to dive into each part and break them down-how each of these applies to me in my daily life and my goals.
