Never in a thousand years I could have imagined that COMMITMENT could be my word of the year.
I don’t commit.
Yet, over the years, I called my own bullshit.
I am plenty committed.
I am committed to my training.
I am committed to my writing.
I am committed to my clients.
I Google the word “commitment”.
Two definitions come up: 1) engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action; and 2) the state of being dedicated to a cause or activity.
First definition – ummm, no, thanks. With freedom as my core value, there is nothing less appealing.
Second definition is what I am working with here. Dedication.
After spending last year, narrowing in on what really matters, it only makes sense to COMMIT to that what matters in 2016.
I have started the ball rolling by committing to meditate every single day this year. So far, so good.
Mission statement for 2016:
Read. Teach. Share.
Be a gentle(r) guide.
Say I do.
See my grandparents.
Ask brilliant minds for help.
Keep hugging people.
