Commitment Issues

11 Aug

I have commitment issues.

Case(s) in point:

I buy a new duvet cover. I enjoy it for a few days and then I realize; This duvet cover is tying me to this robin egg’s blue/orange/yellow/lime green/pink color scheme! What if I wanted to add Navy Blue  into this scheme? Impossible. I need a new duvet cover.

 I intend to bake a delicious pastry. I get out all the ingredients and even tie up an adorable apron. Recipe. Ingredients. EXACT measurements. This is too much pressure! I opt for a bowl of cereal instead.

I am going to be a body builder (I really thought this…). No, a photographer. I’m going to start a social media firm. I’m going to make A LOT of money and become a famous makeup artist! I am going to build an empire on lash extensions. I’m in love. No, I’m not. I’m going to homeschool Carter. I’m going to travel the world with just a backpack. I’m going to buy a house and start a farm. I’m going to the big city and living metro in a high-rise condo. I am going to start a day spa. I am going to run a marathon! Heck, I’m going to do an Ironman triatholon! I might marry this guy. No, I won’t. I’m going to wake up every morning and do thirty minutes of yoga every day. I am going to pray every morning and every night. I am going to read a book a week.

 I am going to blog every day.

Hey! I have fulfilled my commitment of blogging kind of consistently for one entire month!

Yes! Today is my 1-monthiversary!

In honor of this magnificent day of devotion, I am doing a giveaway if I can actually part with my beloved prize! You can win a $20 gift certificate to Rice Fusion Cuisine (featured on my blog here)!

And by the way, my greatest commitment is a great one. It’s this little guy.

    I wish I could have come up with something as profound as this but it truely is reflects whats in my heart. We’re in the same boat Carly just a differnt ocean. I find that I can commit to others but not myself. I’m a man of my word but breaking it is so easy when it comes to presonal commitments. I think you’re a wise woman to discover this now in your 20’s.

    Having read through your blog I commend you! Life is full of so many commitments. Making the choice what we commit to most is what is the most important. I would to say that my most important commitments are my family, My awesome husband and two great kids. Don’t tell her but when she start first grade on Monday I am gonna miss her like mad.
