Commit to Make it Happen

Quote on commitment

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.

It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words.

It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year.

Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things.

It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.

Commit to make it happen!

– Joe Plumeri

I happened upon this card one day, several years ago. It appears now and then, just at the right moment! Today is that moment: Commit to make it happen. 

Life Vitae

I am an architect
I build my life
I plan according to my environment
and change as conditions and needs change,
expanding, reaching out when necessary
whether I appear great or small

I am a teacher
I share my knowledge
I help others to learn and grow
in their minds and abilities,
encouraging them to shine
in their words and actions

I am a student
I study my life
I am always learning from others
and from my own experiences;
I do not misuse or abuse; I cooperate
with my fellow students of humanity

I am a dancer
I move with rhythm and vitality
I care for myself and others; flowing
through life with appreciation for beauty and grace,
dancing in daylight and dreams

I am an artist
I create my life
I paint every moment alive with color
and perspectives, sculpting
my dreams into reality

I am an actor
I develop my character
I fulfill many roles with poise and integrity,
giving myself completely to who I can be
in every moment and situation

I am a novelist
I write my story
I create a new page every day
with memories and fantasies;
I live through regrets and happiness, engaging
thoughts and emotions, love and adventure

I am a poem
I am here for you to read
I am here for you to write;
sometimes I am clear and sometimes complex,
written with understanding or confusion

I am me
and all that is involved.
