I Am In Earnest

I am in earnest

I feel things intensely and I commit with my whole heart.  This is who I am.  It will never change.  And I won’t apologize for it, not even to myself.

I will not equivocate

I promise to do my best with this.  Don’t fudge.  Don’t evade.  Don’t hide.  Face your life head on.  Say what you mean, and don’t be afraid to finish your sentences.

I will not excuse

This will be the hardest part, but I’m determined to try.  I will no longer blindly accept that which is given me, if I deserve more.  And I do.  Deserve more.

I will not retreat a single inch

I will stand my ground and demand more from my life.  I will happily meet you halfway, but I will NOT be anyone’s doormat.

And I will be heard

So hear me.
