Virtue of the Week: Commitment

Commitment is caring deeply about something or someone. It is deciding carefully what you want to do, then giving 100 percent, holding nothing back. You give your all to friendship, a task, or something you believe in. You finish what you start. You keep your promises.

You are practicing commitment when you:

– Think before you make a promise,

– Keep every agreement you make,

– Make decisions confidently,

– Go the extra mile,

– Give 100 percent to everything you do, and

– Are faithful to people you care about.

Affirmation:

I commit to my decisions. I keep my agreements. I give my all. I am a faithful friend.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
