Acts of Kindness

Day two and it's already coming in close to the wire. 

Something I love is helping other people. I love helping them along in their journey, helping them clear their thought process, get closer to making dreams a reality, even just putting a smile on their face. 

Be that person. Do the unexpected kind act. Surprise someone with your kindness. 

It's amazing how far cooperation will get you.

I'm afraid of commitment.


There, I said it. 


It's not so much I'm afraid of committing to a person, or an ideal. It's more that I'm afraid of being in a situation that I can't get out of. Honestly, it's the little commitments that have often scared me the most. Agreeing to hang out with someone later that night, or that weekend, for example. Little things that don't matter. I'm afraid of that.


I've actually had an easier time with the big things. I've committed to starting my own business, to be with someone, to pursue my own path creatively. So far none of those things have panned out, but those are also things you can't try only once.


But I hate finding myself in situations where I don't see options. The rational part of my brain suggests that sometimes future me is going to have a much better view of the situation than present me, so delay the decision as long as possible. In some situations, that's true. 
However, we could all use a little more consistency. It's definitely something I want more of in my life, and in my work.
So here's the deal. I'm not going to commit to blogging and posting a photo every day for the next year, but I'm not going to say I won't.
 

As far as how to blog every day, I honestly have no idea how anyone does almost anything every single day. We'll see.
