Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism."
Welcome another week with the idea of commitment. Intention and action are two forces that define why and how you leave your mark (LYM). Intention that is born of a good heart shapes our actions in positive ways. When we put time and effort into something or someone, the importance and value that we place there becomes evident to others. Be clear and ever aware of the messages you put out into the world as people get impressions and make assumptions based on what they see and hear. You define your beliefs by what you commit to. Remember as you live, to use your time wisely and prudently as this indicates your cares and priorities. The things we do consistently shows those around us what we really care about. Of course, priorities are constantly changing. However, we have as our foundation the people and ideas that we hold on to through changing times. The effort we put into commitment to GOD, family and close relationships coupled with the values we hold dear weaves the fabric of our character and integrity. Consider this as you spend your precious time showing commitment to the people and things that represent the ways in which you want to LYM (leave your mark). Until seven sunsets, live fully, laugh abundantly and most positively......LYM.
