~Commitment…oops i said the “c” word!~

Filed under: quotes, wandering/questions of the heart... — Kristina @ 6:30 pm

Saw the quote below the other day and just think it is fabulous…

Have you ever halfway committed to something?  You are not the only one…but,  you may not have been truly committed.

Maybe you started something then realized it wasn’t a fit– ya know a job or career path, an exercise routine-fitness center, a club/organization— or a relationship such as a friendship or love?

Is it true that our society in general has commitment issues or what?  Something i have been picking up on even in my own life…we all have some level of selfishness.  Selfishness has often hindered me from seeing a task or commitment situation for what it really is, therefore i will start something and realize “oh that’s really not a fit for me”.  Yes, there have been times i just did not want to work hard for something as well, so, unfortunately I have backed out of a few commitments or causes that i should have been a part of.

I am spacing this quote out for impact…take it in, my toes kind of hurt, in recent history, i have thought i am a person of commitment and passion…i am now hoping to attain that description for my character.  Maybe i have been committed to some level, but am learning i now must extend further than i have.

“The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating-              in work, in play, in love.                     The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic,                       from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as      rational hesitation.

To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life.”

Wow! Just thought i would share something i am personally working on.
