Sometimes I will walk into my office, a meeting, or even my own home with the somewhat joking greeting of, “Who’s in charge?” Reactions vary, sometimes I get “You are”, or maybe, “not me”. Then there is always someone who names another person in the room that is in charge.
I was thinking about this rhetorical question last week. Who is really in charge? For many of us it is our God, but on a day to day basis, we are in charge of our lives and the decisions we make. Our faith, morals and values guide those choices, but we must act upon them. Our daily choices have results and consequences. We decide our attitude for the day. How positively we impact others is a decision we make. Individually, each day we choose what we eat, when or if we workout, and like these decisions we all are in control of our own productivity at work and at home. Every single one of us is in charge. The answer to the question is, “I am!”
You are in Charge!
