  1. I totally agree with you, Becky. I told my students all the time that, eventually, giving up activities is necessary (even healthy), but that a commitment means you stick it out to the end. Well said.

  2. Thanks Ashley! Clearly this is something I feel pretty strongly about. I think my parents did a great job of allowing us to make our own decisions and select our own preferences while still expecting us to live up to our responsibilities. It seems so silly to just commit to something for the sake of committing to it. If you don’t like it and it makes your life worse, and there are no ancillary benefits (like a paycheck), what are you really committing to? Throwing away your time, energy and talent? Seems pointless.
