It is our responsibilities, not ourselves, that we should take seriously. (Peter Ustinov)

Your responsibilities are to be the best you possible, being so serious and hard on yourself is not the best solution.  Keep your promise to your responsibilities to work hard and play hard.  Find your balance of excitement along with your devotion to your job, career.  Prioritize your days to always include something fun, too much work and no play, allows life to become a bore.

Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility. (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

When you are ready to face the music, and take responsibility head on, you will do what you need to act.  Action comes about when it is most needed, we have the ability to react when we need to and live the way we want to.  Living in a sense, is allowing happiness to exist and shine it’s light through every window of your heart.  As we evolve daily, we need to also find new ways of being responsible and promising happiness to ourselves, because we truly deserve it.
