So here's what's on my mind today ...
I am someone who takes responsibility for everything that happens to me in my life. I never blame God, or my parents or anyone for how things have turned out in my life so far. Luckily, I have had the 'liberty' to make most of my decisions and the 'luck' that they turned out fine. [And anyone, who believes in the concept of 'luck' also has to believe in its main characteristic - unreliability!]
The point I am making is that I believe everyone has a choice to do or not to do something. No one can force you to do anything [unless you are at gun point!]. If you choose to do something you do not want to then you are either not courageous enough to stand up for yourself or have a good reason for doing it [which again makes it - your choice!]
So when I am ready to take responsibility for the 'bad' that happens to me, it makes me wonder why can't I own up to the 'good' that happens to me as well? I think it is a little hypocritical to label it as 'good fortune' or 'blessings' always. Why can't I just say that - Yes! I deserve it! I sure as hell have no problem saying it when something 'unfortunate' happens.
I do not mean to sound ungrateful for everything that I have. It is just a thought, that if I am responsible for all the bad, then I should be responsible for all the 'good', equally.
You know what I mean? No? Well, never mind, just enjoy the pictures then! :o)
