Tonight, in my life group, we briefly talked about commitments. One of the things that came to my mind in that conversation was that I need accountability from someone or something when I make a commitment. I then figured out that is why I write things in my blog...it helps hold me accountable for what I say I want to do or accomplish (i.e. blogging about my marathon training, gluten free experiences, etc.). Our conversation went much deeper but here is another commitment I want to be held accountable for:
With my current work schedule, I haven't had to leave my house until around 9 am to see my first patient. I wake up in the 7 o'clock hour, roll out of bed around 8, make breakfast and coffee, and turn on The Today Show as I get on the internet. I want to edit that routine just a bit....let's try this one:
- Wake up in the 7 o'clock hour
- Roll out of bed around 8
- Make breakfast and coffee
- Read a daily devotional
Now that's a picture I want to take...this can only make me a better person.
