Decide Everyday


I had a conversation with a friend of mine about commitment.
She has a sister who recently lost her husband through suicide.
She said her sister has to wake up every day and decide/commit to be happy.
By doing this she has endured and is succeeding in helping herself and her children to heal and cope with the loss of her husband.

I'm very blessed to not have to go through something as sad as this.
I need to look at my life and be thankful for so much.
If my friend's sister can wake up and commit to be happy and endure what she has been, then I certainly can wake up every morning and decide/commit myself to be happy and live healthy for that day.

Take baby steps.

Take it one day at a time.

It seems so simple, yet it's so difficult for so many of us.

What do you commit to today?

Thank you for helping me to realize this morning that my small problems are not as BIG as I make them out to be! I commit today to giving it everything I have and falling into bed tired, happy and content with the effort I put forth.

Tomorrow I'll commit to the long run. Today I'll commit to work (and cocktails in the evening ;)).

Love this post! :)

Great post! I agree about the baby steps and one day at a time mindset. Big time.
