Why Commitment Matters


What comes to your mind when you hear the word 'commitment'?

I think about commitment and how it not only matters in my marriage but also in my fitness and overall health.  They both take dedication and work, right?  Think about that: if you cheat on your marriage, it will not work…if you cheat on your health, it will not work…see what I mean. In order to maintain a happy, healthy relationship, it takes commitment, effort, and work on a consistent basis.  

In this journey of life, I have learned what I do and don't want. I certainly have found a gem in my husband and cherish our relationship as a top priority.  I feel the same way about my fitness. I realize my body is a precious gift worthy of my time and attention so I can live a healthy quality of life. 

Commitment is a word that I don't use lightly. It's a promise that I will maintain my relationship in a healthy way with my hubby and with myself. 

I don't need a special Hallmark day in my life to appreciate my honey and my health. Each day is an opportunity to make the right choices and do the right things.  I treat both my marriage and health with tender loving care, appreciation, time and attention. 

Commitment to the things that matter is important and believe me, there are plenty of 'busy things' in life that just don't matter. I like that motivational saying “when you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results”.  I believe in seeing positive results in my marriage and health. If I don't take the healthy steps to make that happen, that is on me. I have worked too hard and long in my life to not make the most of each day, and appreciate what good health and true love feels like.   

I am over 50 years young and it has taken half my life to reach the maturity of emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being that I understand today.  The road along the way was difficult as I am sure most of you can relate. Through patience, perseverance, and commitment to want more for me in every aspect of life, the journey was worth the results. 

The importance of commitment is also patience through the process as nothing happens overnight. There is no such thing as here today and gone tomorrow and rushing life usually gets us no-where. The point is to stay true to your commitments, appreciate the journey, and grow in positive ways through the struggles.

  1. Really beautiful blog post! I was hooked by the quote on FB. I started my fitness journey about a year ago and have found myself committed (not just interested). I am 42 and probably the best shape in 20 years!!
