We’re almost at the end of the month now, this month has had lots of ups and downs including the official end of winter and start of spring. One of the reasons I like spring is because it is all about new beginnings. This month one of the things we’ve talked about is commitment. I know that sometimes, even if you’re committed to something it’s necessary to recommit yourself to it. Sometimes we recommit because we’ve not been the most committed, but other times we recommit to reinforce and restate our commitment, but not because of failure or mistake.
Recommitting to something or someone isn’t a bad thing, it means you’ve recognized how important that thing or person is in your life and you want to make that clear to yourself or others. Recommitting yourself can give that motivation, that fresh breath of air, that burst of energy you’d been missing. It can also be the chance you’ve been needing to ask for the help or make the changes you’ve been struggling with or contemplating or even avoiding.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having or choosing to recommit. The issue comes when the recommitting isn’t taken to heart, if you don’t follow through on the reasons and purpose behind the recommitting. There’s no point to recommitting if you’re not going to do what it will take to make it work or keep working. So before we end this month I encourage you to make a firm decision about your future. What does it hold? Are you committed to seeing through the path your on or is it time to make a new commitment?
