A Nice Idea
"That seems like a nice idea. I'd love to do that...someday..."
Don't get me wrong. It's wonderful to let your mind wander and explore possibility.
But it's also important to recognize the difference between a "nice idea" and a commitment.
Maybe it's just the introvert in me, but going out on a Friday night is a nice idea...until I'm done with the week and all I want to do is cook a nice meal and relax on the couch...
Fortunately my friends know me well enough to allow me a little grace because...
Far too often we're stuck in the in-between. Confusing nice ideas for commitments.
Leaving the important things undone because we've over-committed to things that really aren't.
So today I have a gift for you. Something to set yourself free...
This is your invitation to wipe the slate clean starting right now.
You are hereby granted permission to remove any ill-conceived commitments from your conscience and slide them over to the 'nice idea' column.
Likewise you can take those few very important things- things that feed your Soul- and slide them over to the "commitment" column.
Go ahead and do that now. I'll wait...
I thought it might.
My bet is that your commitment column just got a lot lighter, and much more exciting!
Enjoy your freedom today,
