Generous commitment, enthusiastic persistence, high-spirited devotion. Seemingly contradictory ideas, but I get them, I can groove on them. Especially the enthusiastic persistence bit; when I heard that one, it seemed like it was the way to describe so many parts of my life. High-spirited devotion is a bit harder to reconcile, but if I shift devotion into the profane realm, it suddenly seems to describe how I've pursued my dreams. And that leaves generous commitment – to whom, to what? I think that is the one I need to be working on, trying to integrate that attitude into my life.
