At the moment, I am interested. I was very committed for a long time. Then life came calling with many other commitments. I look forward to life settling down in a month or two so that I can ENJOY commitment to me again.

Fortunately, my long-term commitment brought with it many changes in my daily behavior which have kept this period from being disastrous to my health and well being.

A friend shared this and it really struck a nerve:

"Think about losing weight--you can be interested in losing those extra pounds or you can be committed to changing your lifestyle in order to be healthier. How do you get from interest to commitment? Being interested means you stick to what is convenient, what is comfortable, what is practical and easy. Being committed means you go out of your comfort zone, you do whatever it takes, you give it time. When you commit, you see things as a MUST--not a should, would be nice or even a maybe. The force of a commitment to yourself activates a whole different level of energy. Just say the words "I am interested." Then try "I am committed." I'll bet the inflection in your voice was completely different. There's power in commitment!"
--Ariane De Bonvoisin

Are you interested or committed?
