An example a little closer to home is Michael, my husband, and his commitment to his own health and personal growth. He set himself the goal of completing his Masters in Indigenous Health and two duathlon events this year. A sport he has never done before. I have admired the responsibility he has taken to complete his assignments so he can graduate next year and to improve his fitness and identify what it would take to compete in a duathlon. He completed his final assignments despite busy work schedules and supporting my crazy schedule. He also finished his second duathlon last week. It was a great achievement. It was a clear example of the importance of taking responsibility to define your goal and then creating daily habits that will get you closer. He had no one holding him to account , he took full responsibility to learn, adapt and face the challenges I am very proud of his strength and commitment.
I am also very grateful for his support . It is his love and commitment that allows me to be the person I am. He holds me to account to be the best I can and in turn I take personal responsibility to be clear about our goals together, my personal goals and we face every day together creating habits that will ensure we achieve individually and as a couple. We can hold each other to account but at the end of the day it is our personal responsibility to do what really matters to achieve our goals.
