You know what’s a powerful word? “Re-commitment.” I truly do think we can move mountains when we grasp and practice the concept of re-commitment.
Here’s the thing: Humans lose steam. Motivation is not sustainable for the long haul. No matter how much you want to achieve your dream, you will experience a moment (or a million moments) of doubt. You’ll lose sight of why you want what you want. You’ll get tired. You’ll get distracted. You’ll back-track.
That’s where re-commitment comes in. Instead of making yourself feel like crap for getting tired, distracted, or back-tracking, you can re-commit. You can give yourself some grace, re-adjust some things, strategize for a bit, and continue traveling in the direction you want to go in. This is a beautiful thing. This is a self-compassionate thing. This is a powerful thing.
(And the best part is, you can practice re-commitment whenever you want or need to. Cha-ching!)
Is there anything in your life that you’d like to re-commit to? If so, I encourage you to take the leap, without shaming yourself for having a setback. That’s why re-commitment exists in the first place, after all. Re-commitment accepts that you’re not perfect, and yet, it’s still there for you.
It’s setting an example for you — to help you accept and be there for yourself too.
P.S. These are just a few thoughts I had while on my morning walk today. Thought I’d share. Feel free to share yours too. Also, I think I’m going to feature other powerful words on the blog every so often. Stay tuned.
