Gifts of Character – Responsibility

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Responsibility. Responsibility is about being dependable to do what we say we will do and giving excellence to all we take on. When we make a mistake, or there is an area we can improve, we do so willingly without excuses. We discern the influence we have on people and events and focus on how we desire to be a leader.

Today as I reflect on the virtue of responsibility I am mindful of the influence I have on those around me and the accountability to be my best self and reliable. I recognize the effect I have on family, students, peers in the manner that I speak and the attitude I bring to any situation. I take responsibility by focusing on my part in creating a peaceful environment while fulfilling the areas for which I am accountable.
