#mycommitment :: 12 months of giving.

I've been really excited to reveal my New Year's commitment for 2013.  Later this morning, I'll be running the Commitment Day 5k in Raleigh.  I'll start 2013 off right.  Set my focus for how I want the rest of my year to go.  I already mentioned that my commitment is to be less selfish.  Remember that time I was open and honest about who I am?  I confessed that I am totally selfish.  I've been trying to make small steps already to show D that I appreciate him.  I'll keep that up, but I really want to make a more significant effort to be a little more selfless.  I have a plan.

My commitment is to do something every single month that is dedicated to giving back.  I'm making it easier on myself by setting a specific task for myself every month.  

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out things I have wanted to do for a long time, but I just haven't made them happen.  2013 is time.  2012 was so good to me, and I feel it's time for me to give back.  This is my commitment.

The fun part?  I'd love for you to join me in 12 months of Giving!  I'll be posting at the beginning of each month with my progress & successes from the previous month.  If you're interested in joining me by focusing less on yourself and more on others this year, please join me!  Here's your button, so spread the word!

You rock, girl. You rock so hard. And 2013, by comparison, is going to kick major butt.
