Commitment and Contentment


As 2019 kicks into gear, social media is filled with NY resolutions, promises of the year ahead and plans to take over the world – or at least the bathroom scale.


The biggest resolution that you and I can make for ourselves is the balance of Commitment and Contentment.

We must be committed to something greater than ourselves. To a great and lofty ideal of success, whatever that is for each of us.

We must be content with achieving less than we planned.

This statement is not meant to give us a way out to achieve nothing.

We must strive.

We must act.

We must want to be a better version of ourselves than we were in 2018.

And we must also be content that sometimes this won’t be possible. We’ll aim for the stars and come up short.

And that’s ok too.

As long as we remember that…

Contentment is gratitude.

And in gratitude we have the opportunity to reset and go again. In gratitude we find our greatest strength.

I am content with this achievement and I now strive for the next level.
