Day Eight – Make a Commitment

posted by Melanie Lutz

The happiness quotient in our life is directly dependent on the promises and commitments we make and break to ourselves.

Don’t be fooled that how you do one thing isn’t how you do everthing.

Making a commitment and sticking to it is the ultimate exercise in loving yourself.  In unlearning what you have learned as your way in the world.

When what you see isn’t what you want,  it is time to make a commitment to you. To what you want to see. To be the person that you know you were born to be. 

Acceptance and serenity is an inside job. It takes a practice. It takes your commitment to show up for yourself.

A commitment to remembering your magnificence brings foward your authentic self, bringing you to the tools necessary to process through what comes up as you step forward increasing your emotional musculature and abilities to handle anything that crosses your path with grace.  

Take the hugest step on the path to your most radiant self making Love your bottom line. 

 

When I started my process of reclaiming the truth I started to hear these words.

 
For the next 100 days
I am going to consider the possibility that there is another way.
I won’t talk about war, I will feel peace.
I won’t talk about what isn’t working. I will experience what is.
I won’t complain about what people don’t do. I will appreciate what they do.
Cura Et Labore “with care and work”
I am going to allow myself to be uplifted.
And. Be willing to see change. In a new light.
In what’s remembered.
 

It did not stop repeating in my head until I started taking action on the message.  That action has resulted in a large collection of love based messages.  I have considered the possibility there is another way and it is what I live every day of my life.  A life that is now filled with an expression of myself that is grounded that resonates with the gravitas of love of everything that comes my way.  A life I can be proud of because it is a life that contains self respect and self reliance that I can trust my yes and I can trust my no because I know how to make a commitment and stick to it.

Don’t fall asleep to the truth.  The promises you make and break to yourself represent the confidence of purpose that you experience as radiance.  Awaken a commitment to loving yourself.

May today’s commitment bring you untold happiness and clarity of integrity.

lots of Love,

Melanie
