Four To Go

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Where did the time go? We've just got four days to go! Wow. It's hard to believe that our 30 days of keeping a commitment is almost over. I know that for me, it has been a really long time since I have been this committed to doing something every single day that's good for me, and I'm convinced that it has made a subtle but noticeable difference in my self confidence. I flat out feel better about Shirley. So, how cool is that?

Also, today I taught a Reiki 1 class, and all that practice doing the attunements (one a day) has really paid off, which is really nice since I've now had the pleasure of reaping the rewards of my commitment. I'm even starting to look ahead and think about what my next 30 day commitment will be, and it seems important to keep a cool head about it so that I don't get ambitious and overcommit myself.

Now seems like a good time to find out if anyone has ideas or opinions about just how many commitments a person should try to keep at one time. One is definitely doable - but is three too many? What about five? Is that insane? Where are we already committed? Are those other commitments negotiable? And is it time to renegotiate? Would it be a really good idea to narrow it down to just one or two commitments that are kept hell or high water? Could we then restructure all the other chores, jobs, plans and ambitions? Would it be a good idea to put them on the "I could choose to do it if I wanted to" list?

What do you think guys? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject, especially since I keep coming up with all kinds of things I might want to commit to for the next 30 days... I don't want to go crazy, and yet I don't want to lose this nice momentum either.

Rather than thinking in terms of number of daily committments, I try to think in terms of the total amount of time I am comfortable spending each day on the commitments. I am committing to at least an hour of Qigong a day. That is because what I need now more than anything else is increased energy, and in 50+ years of searching, I have found that Qigong is what most efficiently gives me the strength for doing everything else. So the committment I make is the most foundationally advantageous I can think of. I LOVE making these monthly committments and hope to stick with it all year. Shirley, you are an inspiration. I can see more and more why my dear friend Michelle C. thinks so highly of you.

Angelina - That's a really good insight! And I think you're right. Go for the fundamentally best - and commit only to an amount of time that's doable! Thank you!
