It takes our decision to be fully committed to anything. We decide whether we would like to be “All In.” Let’s take a moment to discuss, “Fully Committed.”
Can you name something you are fully committed to right now? If so, what caused you to make this choice? How have you overcome obstacles that can get in the way of your commitment? Each of these questions are really important when evaluating where you are in making a decision to be “Fully Committed.”
Some may say, I have been fully committed to losing weight, so I have made some major changes in my eating habits and daily activities for example. When the times became hard to see this through, one might say, “I reflected on why I started and understand that commitment takes determination and tenacity.”
Another example may be that you have decided to make better choices on how you spend your money. You see the need to make a budget and keep to it. Now as the prices of everything has risen the decision to continue on this commitment requires even more adjustments because you understand how easy it is to overspend and not have enough. Perhaps you have needed to streamline even more and although, this is very trying you see this is the way to get through these difficult moments.
Being fully committed to anything will require sacrifice. It may take a strength you did not know you were capable of. I have honestly found that with God on my side I can do ‘All Things.’
Perhaps, there are moments when you have made major decisions to walk through change and it took your willingness to begin. What we must remember is that it will take our full commitment to finish it as well. There’s something about beginning a thing, but there is also something about completing it. The in-between from the beginning of to the end is what reflects where our true commitment is.
If we quit something we really want to be committed to, we can feel like we failed. What I think is important is to evaluate along the way while walking through it. If at any point, you see that you must adjust to remain committed do so. Be honest about it so you do not feel bad if you could not finish it out. Obviously, there will be things we thought we should be committed to, but the wisest things were to break free from it such as a toxic relationship, workplace or any environment. We must understand that our commitment to something starts and ends with us. We are the ones deciding whether we want to remain committed or not.
I would love to hear what have you decided to be ‘Fully Committed’ to? How is it going for you? Have you had to make adjustments to your decisions? Do you find your decision to be fully committed easy or difficult? Share you story and bring encouragement to others too.

Very thoughtful post!
Thank you so much for taking moments with me and sharing your thoughts.
This is such a great post. It’s important to think about commitment, so we can either ditch the things we are not too bothered about and focus on our passions.
I’m committed to blogging mostly. Even on days I feel like I don’t want to write, I push myself because I have an ultimate goal I want to reach and I’m not there yet.
It’s such an important topic to consider. I am so glad that you shared your story and your commitment to blogging etc. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and taking moments with me.
I enjoyed reading this. Thank you for sharing your perspectives on this subject.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and share your thoughts.
the first thing that came to mind was i’m fully committed to my marriage. but i would also choose blogging as well since that is a passion of mine. but as a newly married person, i’m excited to be going through life with someone else by my side. it’s a beautiful thing.
These are some great examples of being “Fully Committed.” Both will take a lot of work and intentional living to continue in. It is definitely an adventure to know you will be side by side in life. I agree it is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for taking moments with me to read.
