In the beginning of each year, my pastor at First Baptist Orlando, tells us his word of the year and asks that everyone have a word of their own to live by. Most of the time I have to think about it awhile, in order to come up with a word that means something in my life.
This year was different, it came to me so quickly and I knew it was something I have been struggling with in the past. My word is Commitment. In the past, commitment was a problem for me. I always had great intentions of doing things and I would WANT to commit to, but never followed through. I am not sure exactly why I am like this and my procrastination with some things drive me nuts, and I am the one doing it to myself!
So, this year I am making a COMMITMENT. A commitment to everything I do.
* to my sunday school job
* to the Magic
* to my students
* to cooking at home instead of eating out
* to my new eating lifestyle
* to pilates
* to my schoolwork
* to paying off my debts
* to spending time with friends
* to spending time with family
The list goes on and on, but these are the most important for right now. What are you commited to this year?
