What are you committed to?

Every day, all day, we say things.  Out loud and silently, to ourselves and others.
Some of it inconsequential.  Some of it, could move the needle for better.

I’m going to….
~ Eat greens for dinner.
~ Get up and go to the gym.
~ Write 500 words a day.
~ Save $5 each day.
~ Drink less.
~ Walk more.

These could be considered commitments – if we truly meant them. Mostly, these statements are simply lip service or small hopes of what we wish to do.

What are you you committed to?

Your words are one thing, but your actions tell the story. 
Take a moment and assess what you say you’re committed to. How do your actions line up with your commitments? 

You might want to be committed to a healthy lifestyle.  Who doesn’t? 
However, if you don’t move your body on a regular basis, I’d question that commitment.  

What are you you committed to?
Where are you, and where do you want to be?  As we re-enter daily life after the Covid Pandemic, it’s the perfect time to commit.  To state what you want, and define the actions that line up with that.  It’s an excellent time to push yourself outside of your comfort zone and make new commitments. To bind yourself to living the life YOU want to live.

For me, I don’t like the idea of being bound to something (I’m a rebel, through and through) AND, I know that right now is the time to commit to some new habits. For me, it’s important that I don’t think of these commitments as constraints or bindings, but as ways to further my expansion.  To grow beyond where I’m comfortable now. This will make all the difference, and give me a better chance of truly committing to me.
