Commitment

I have to say I’m a little afraid of it. Not the commitment itself, not to say that I’m committed to a goal, but the actual follow through. To follow through on the commitment, to change the game so to speak.

It would be so much easier to go back to the old game, but I’m no longer that person.

So today I made a commitment, and tomorrow is the follow through. 7 People by the end of the week. 7.

I’m supposed to rest now, but I’m filled with this nervous anticipation, and not really sure how to deal with it. I’m considering going through and doing my rearrangement. But if I do that, I won’t be able to sleep tonight, because then my room will be full of the same nervous moving energy I am.

ME

I know my choices make you nervous. I know my choices may not be your choices. I know my boundaries may not be what you may like. I know my actions may not make you comfortable.

But there is a difference here.

They are my choices, my decisions, my actions, and my boundaries.

I have enough fear and anxieties all with in myself.

I got my first “not now” today.

Politics

Soap box moment.

Pot meet Kettle, and the color black.

This can be said for EVERY BODY on EVERY SIDE of the spectrum that is the political season. Whether it be independents, conservatives, libertarians, liberals. There are transgressions on all sides, some more so than others. Some may be looney or some may be completely sane, it all depends on the perspective and who’s looking and listening.

Keep in mind that representatives are HUMAN, they are libel to have the same mistakes and exaggerations that you or me may have. Take it with a grain of salt. Form your own opinion, do your own research.

Especially before you go and burn that bridge for a friendship that you might have had since you were 5.

Off soap box.
