Lets talk about honoring commitments.
Why is it that so many of us are able to follow through with commitments that we make to others so much easier than to ourselves?
Are we not as important? Does our word mean anything?
This is an area that I used to struggle with... a lot. I would have the best of intentions by setting goals and plans to achieve bigger and better things, then when it was time to take the steps to make it happen.. my brain would somehow talk me out of it. Or I would just simply "forget".
Do you forget things that are actually important to you? I bet not. And if so, rarely.
I have put a lot of energy into changing the way my brain works when making commitments. I can now say that I AM IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO SHOW UP FOR MYSELF.
I love being in service of others, but you can only give so much without replenishing yourself. (Remember to put your oxygen mask on first)
Now when I make a commitment, it is as good as done. There is no ambivalence when it's go-time.
Do you find yourself bailing on you? How has this effected you? Do you even trust yourself anymore?
How about when you tell someone close to you about your new commitment? Do they believe in you? Or are they justified in being a bit skeptical as to whether you will see that goal through?
How many times have you committed to losing the weight for good?
"Starting tomorrow I am committed to eating healthy and going to the gym" you tell your husband. And his response? Hopefully encouraging.. but maybe a bit skeptical as well? Do you blame him?
You owe it to yourself to learn WHY you do this and more importantly, HOW to stop.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. ❤
