Although I have a commitment to write my blog each week, last week I observed resistance. Is it time to reevaluate my commitment, I wondered. It wasn’t okay to just ignore the commitment to write. Either I write or I re-examine my commitment to write weekly.
Many years ago I learned that when I break a commitment to myself, it diminishes self-trust. So I’m taking the time to reconsider and decide if I want to recommit.
The questions I’ll mull over include:
- What does the commitment to write each week mean to me now?
- What benefits do I receive from the writing?
- What potential benefits might others receive?
- Does the process of writing each week uplift me and give me joy?
We’ll see where these questions take me.
What have you learned about keeping and renegotiating commitments?
