The Year of No Nonsense

Shonda Rimes (producer of shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal) has a great book called The Year of Yes,  where she, as a former ‘no to everything’ type gal started to say yes–to events, to invitations and more.

She basically started showing up to her own life, and everything changed for her.

I know that feeling.

I took some big steps on December 12, 2015 when I began to ask myself the questions:
What if I gave this coming year my best efforts?
What if I just tried to be the best VERSION of myself?  

Up until that time, I was showing up to some parts of my life–like training and racing, maybe sometimes with the kids and spouse, but the rest of it?

I was just drowning. In so many ways.

With my commitment in 2016, I didn’t try to be anyone else. I didn’t try to live up to anyone else’s version of what I should be. I tried to stop comparing myself to others.

I just tried to get out of my own way.

2016 was a good year.

2017 was a tough year, but one where I grew immensely and where amazing doors opened up. So I can call it good, although very tiring and tough.

I decided that 2018 needed a new theme, a new flair.

For 2018, I decided to commit to a Year of No Nonsense–with myself and with others.

Somehow this idea has resonated with many of you, so I thought about a pledge, commitment and accountability group–why not spread the message of “no nonsense”?

No Nonsense is a very personal pledge.

It can mean different things for each of us–and that’s what makes it fun.

The Pledge

I commit to a Year of No Nonsense with the following. I pledge to:

  • Show up to my life the best way I can, every single day
  • Get out of my own way
  • Make my goals and dreams a priority
  • Forgive myself for the past
  • Be present in the day-to-day
  • Look towards the future with a positive attitude
  • Stop the drama in my own life
  • Stop participating in the drama that shows up
  • Prioritize the positive changes I want to make
  • Surround myself with positive influences
  • Be kind to myself and others
  • Stop the unique brand of nonsense in my own life

Add your OWN commitments on the pledge
