“There’s a point in your life when you want to become really responsible for what you’re putting out there and what you’re saying.” – Tim Kring
I heard this quote on Ellen one day last week. Keifer Sutherland quoted Tim Kring, the producer of the show “Heroes” and the current new series Sutherland is in, “Touch.” I had to rewind it about 5 times to get it exactly right. I was taken back by these words and reflected for a moment on my life and what I’m “putting out there” and what I’m saying. It all goes back to being impeccable with your word, one of my favorite of The Four Agreements.
After hearing this, moving forward, I’m going to try even harder than I already may to focus on the responsibility I have for my words and for my work and actions. I want to always be proud of everything that I say and do instead of looking back in doubt or worry. Mainly, I want to be able to look back one day and know that I have done my best and hopefully have made a difference in some way, no matter how big or small. Everything we say is out there and we are responsible for it from the moment it leaves our lips and the things we do and create are stamped with out names forever. We need to remember that before we speak and act, knowing we are responsible for these things and the effect they have on ourselves and others.
This is all a part of growing up, and I realize that, and this is why I LOVE getting older. I get wiser and life begins to make more and more sense every day, every year. I’ll be 30 this October and I’m looking forward to it and what wealth of knowledge and understanding comes with the experiences of this year and the years to come.
