Years ago, the motivational speaker and author Zig Ziglar defined commitment this way "When you want to understand committing yourself to something look at a plate of bacon and eggs. The chicken made a contribution, the pig made a commitment."
I met Kait Seyal in November of 2011. She waited tables at a restaurant I frequent and not only did she provide excellent service
we soon became friends. Kait told me of her love for animals, especially dogs, and her commitment to animal rescue and pet therapy for the sick, disabled and elderly.
She and her husband John were looking for a way to bring attention to abused and abandoned animals and the real value of using pets to aid people in their recovery. So they decided to do something small and insignificant (LOL) They quit their jobs, packed up their belongings and decided they and their two dogs would hike from Delaware to San Francisco. They began their journey in late March and as of yesterday had reached Iowa.
I could go on and on but I'd rather give you the link to their blog. It speaks to their journey and commitment to their cause more eloquently than I ever could. As I follow them on their journey I examine my own commitments. If you get a chance stop by and follow their journey.
Here is the Link
