Adults have to commit. They don't really have a choice. It's part of growing up
and being responsible. Commitment can hurt. So, here's the point of my chronicle
this morning ... grab yourself a cup of coffee and join me ...

Good Morning Everybody ....

Good Morning Everybody ....

I've been thinking a lot these past few weeks. Hurting some, crying, some, laughing some, confused some .. lol I think sometimes life is tearing us in all direction to force us into choosing a path.

For me, as I've mentioned before, my past was painful and difficult but at the same, I was blessed with a lot of good mostly due to a stubborn momma who refused that I give up and be blind to the good of the world.

Well ... thank you momma.

On one hand, I see the good and goodness of the world. I see it's beauty, it's colors, its miracles.

I can't ignore the pain I've suffered part of my life. Unfortunately when you grow up, you can't keep your head in the clouds. As an adult, you get to see the ugliness as well. As blessed as I was to remember the good I've been blessed to receive in my life, I have scars. I feel, on some level, damaged.

Allow me to explain.

You get hurt, you fall, you bleed, you scar. You heal. Scar remains as a reminder of the fall and the pain. You don't always think of it but it remains there. Just because you forget for a time, doesn't mean it's gone.

Well, I have lot of lot. Sometimes I wish I was able to escape and not feel so much. Well, everybody knows, redheads are an emotional breed. Well, I stand guilty of that lol.

Adults have to commit.

They don't really have a choice. It's part of growing up and being responsible. Commitment can hurt. So, here's the point of my chronicle this morning ... grab yourself a cup of coffee and join me ...

Even under the most favorable circumstances, commitment can be painful. In that
possibility of pain, one can find meaning and power. Really, what would your commitment be worth if it didn't come with a price?

That said, you have to be ready to pay the price, so choose your commitment wisely. Don't assume you can't pay because yes you can. You cannot avoid making a commitment for fear of the price.

Be prepared.

Once you make a commitment, be prepared to hurt at times. Be prepared to be
uncomfortable. Be prepared to make sacrifices. Be prepared to see it through. A commitment can bring great things. For one, it helps you grow up. You have the
commitment of you make to a partner, a spouse, children, your community, your
friends, your faith, your beliefs, your work, your future. All those bring true lasting rewards on the long run.

Rest assured, you don't get far in life without making some commitments. Fear?
Sure. Fear them enough that you take them seriously but not so much that you
avoid making them.

Commitments will hurt at times. You can handle them.

I'm constantly telling myself that. I can. They're worth it, you're worth it, I'm worth it. Your home, my home, your family, my family, your world and my world is worth it.

Go ahead!Make the commitment. Take the difficulties as they come. Built something great.You can do this. I can do this. We're worth it ... scars and all.

Well friends ...

before I go ... I'd like to leave you with a little inspiration. I believe songs influence us a little if nothing else it puts a bee bop to our step;

Today's song is commitment - Leann Rimes

Time for me to go and and get things done. Be good to one another
and don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given for everyone to
do so.

You got .... Never leave home without it!

SMILE! ... you're on life's candid camera!
