Day 62 of the Season For Nonviolence: "Commitment"

Greetings, family!

Today is Wednesday, April 1, DAY 62 of the Season For Nonviolence. BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I've had so much fun blogging for these first 62 days that I've decided to keep posting daily blogs for the rest of the year! (April Fools!!!!) At any rate, the thought for today is COMMITMENT.

Until one is committed there is hesitancy, a chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment that one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would come his way.

"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it!
 Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!"
-Goethe

And so it is with nonviolence. We set forth a commitment to nonviolence with an intention that we can act upon today. By doing so, we are presented with situations and circumstances that will allow us to model our commitment, to bring nonviolence to a situation.

I Am Becoming… (Janis Kelly @2008)

I am blessed, I am beautiful;
Beloved, bright and brave;
I am bold, I am bountiful;
And better every day;
I am becoming…(I can be);
I am becoming…(brilliantly);
I am becoming…(just for me);
I will be what I will to be;
I will be what I will to be;
I will be—what I will—TO BE!

Peace, blessings & brilliance,

Janis
