Taking responsibility doesn’t sound particularly joyful, does it?
Sounds more like “taking the blame” or “taking the rap”
–which as we all know is no fun at all.
It also sounds like becoming the boss, or the manager.
And who wants to trade places with them!
Better to be fancy-free
and do whatever we please, we figure.
Until the loosey-goosey life loses its appeal
or even backfires on us.
But why would taking responsibility for our own life
be a joyful path to take?
How could it lead to a whole new beginning?
