Day 195

Updated: Sep 10, 2019


The writing isn't the hard part. Once I put the pen to the paper, words usually start to flow pretty easily. Since I've started this journey, I spend a lot of my waking hours looking for inspiration: seeking something that sparks further thought or a deeper dive. At times, I've tried a little bit too hard to dig in to an idea, or I try to force the issue, and I generally scratch those thoughts out because they aren't genuine.

Those instances happen when I'm in the mindset that writing is a chore and that I have to do it. I don't have to do this. I have made a choice to make the commitment to spend sometime reflecting on my own life and my own thoughts and my own experiences, and use them in a way that might somehow make a positive impact and serve to encourage and inspire someone else.

A commitment is a choice. More than anything, it's a deal that you make with yourself. Honoring your commitments is also a choice. It's not a requirement. Some commitments might be a bit more binding than others, some more trivial than others.

For example, I'm certain that my commitment to writing every day is of far less consequence than the commitments I made to my wife on our wedding day. But both are commitments that I wake up every morning and choose.

Life is a privilege not to be taken lightly.

Trivial or binding, your commitments are things that you get to do.

Choose to honor your commitments. Your integrity depends on it.
