Commitment Pic

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s a New Year :). With resolutions looming over of our heads, the truth is that many of us – most of us – will fail terribly at keeping them. Don’t be dismayed, there are several ways we tend to handle this “failure.” Some will throw in the towel and vow to start again … next year. Some will hopelessly solicit the help of others to get them back on the bandwagon and start all over again. And some will remain … committed. Each and every day they will remain committed. In spite of the setbacks, failures, missteps and shortcomings – they will remain committed. I am in this last category.

I have long since given up New Year’s resolutions due to the process being incredibly daunting, unrealistic and overwhelmingly disappointing. A laundry list of to-do’s that I should magically start on January 1st??? NOT!!! But this year I am something different: not as extreme as having no resolutions and not on the opposite end of having too many tasks/goals/ideals that I could never realistically be successful. This year I have decided to recommit each day. I decided that I would take 3, 4 or 5 days to clean my house instead of 1. I decided that I might not work out until the 7th or the 8th, but I will work out. I may not juice my first meal until classes begin, but I will juice. This year I decided to commit to the process … each and every day I commit and recommit and recommit all over again. It’s the journey, not the destination … right.
