Wanting and commitment are not the same thing; I want to lose weight and have good cholesterol numbers.. Am I committed? Not in the actions I’ve taken…There’s a way to look at commitment by the actions we take.. I’ve used this way of looking at my life honestly.. As a nurse I have a commitment to have my patients taken care of.. but a patient who calls and asks me to fill out paperwork, I can procrastinate, make excuses and have very good reasons why I can’t do it now.. If i look at what I’m REALLY committed to in that instance-‘avoiding details which I find tedious’ or “I have a gazillion other things to do and now i have to not do all of that for this one thing”. Bottom line- my commitment is really about “being comfortable”. When we start looking at what we’re REALLY committed to, we can see that there is an impact on our lives and others.. Is that impact worth me spending the rest of my life “being comfortable”?

This is a hard thing for me to do. Every time I make a commitment with a person, or a task something always goes wrong. I have self-doubts and family issues that cause more problems to be than solutions.
So for me to make a new commitment at this point, if it is not a task that needs to be done, then it basically is not happening.

I am committed to becoming a more confident person. For me this is a broad commitment because it also involves being committed to myself, to being positive, to making friends and to being outgoing. There are so many days where I want to give up and go back to being shy and quiet and unnoticeable but I make myself smile and go to talk to the ‘scary’ girls in my science class. It was really hard at first to commit myself to this but now it’s becoming more natural and I’m actually really enjoying it.

I want to be the best version of myself. To put myself first and embrace the challenges that come in the way of what I believe in. To love with all my heart and to work to the best of my abilities. To stand for the people who have always been there. To spend the rest of my life with that one person whose smile I cannot live without. To be great at whatever I choose to do and whenever I choose to do it. To live my life knowing not what I want to become, but who I want to be.

This article is very enlightening. I thought that commitment just has the intention to do something.
