Lately, accountability is my trigger. I work really hard at keeping my word. Sometimes I fail (eehhm late post), but when I act irresponsibly I feel it with a heavy heart. Am I the only one? Last month, I tried to plan a trip with a friend and she just wouldn’t get back to me. I asked two different people to help with home repairs, both committed to a specific day, both bailed. A friend still owes me money from this fall. When I plan a dinner now, I just assume someone will back out with a bullshit excuse at the last minute – because someone always does. I was going deep with my friend the other night on the issue of accountability. I was bitching about feeling let down. She basically informed me my expectation that people follow through is unrealistic. I should just accept that most people are flaky, and if I did I would feel less dismay. No doubt there’s some wisdom there, but aren’t basement level expectations doing everyone a disservice? I expect more out of myself, and I expect more out of you. The universe is a tricky mistress. As soon as I started sending out an energetic desire for accountability, who comes along to offer help? An unusually sexy and handsome accountant. For crying out loud.
