On Recommitting

Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 9.29.44 AM

I stopped writing my blog. At least consistently. I took a little break. Gave myself permission. And now it seems I’ve fallen out of the habit. Lost the mojo for my routine. Somehow it became less important. Sandwiched in between a million excuses why it’s okay to “let it go” for now. And the truth is, I don’t wanna let it go. I’ve missed it. The discipline. The muscle. The one true thing I committed to that I fully honored. Daily. For three full years.

I’ve sat with this. Reevaluated my terms and conditions. And where and with what I want to do with it from here. Maybe I got a little bored. That’s understandable. That happens with commitment and daily routines if we don’t fluff their wings and breathe new life into them.

Stagnation occurs. Boredom increases. And another shiny object catches our attention and we’re off in the distraction of that glittery sparkle.

I don’t want to do that anymore. I want to tame my shiny object syndrome and become all in on something the way I’d been all in on these daily musings for three years straight.

I’m proud of that. I committed. Fully. And I showed up. Faithfully.

I am ready to move on to a new and bigger project and I see now that the temporary estrangement from these musings is what has set the stage for my proper alignment of it.

I’m clear now. Very certain. More so than ever. And this reflection and the awareness of my capability when I go all in has me giddy with excitement at my next level of commitment and what I get to create now that these musings have been the catalyst for.

So my friends. Forgive my absence and inconsistency. Check in with your own.

Where have you gone complacent? Gotten bored, stagnant or stuck?

What can you resurrect with the spark of your own recommitment?

Reach out if I can support you.

It’s time to create.

Something new…

    As so often happens for me, this musing is coming at a very opportune time. I have been reflecting on a lot of things lately where I’m asking myself if a re-commitment is what I need/want for something and whether I’m ready to be “all in.” The clarity you talk about is something I’d like to have right now. I feel like it’s clear, but then I ask myself if I’m ready to put in the effort it will take. Thank you for your perspective and for your timeliness of exactly when I needed to read this.
