April 16 – dedicate

☆  dedicate  ささげる


To dedicate yourself to something, means that you give it a lot of time and effort because you think it is important. For example, nurses and doctors dedicate their lives to caring for sick people. My friend from high school has dedicated himself to politics and would like to be prime minister one day!

Last year was a big (and tough) year for my family, we welcomed a new baby, but also said goodbye to my mum. Both of these events meant that our house got filled with a lot more things! Baby things, and things from my mum’s house that I wanted, or that we needed to keep… so, to be honest, this year, I have been dedicating myself and any free time I have to decluttering! It’s mid-April and I’m still going! I hope I can finish soon, and start dedicating my free time to something I enjoy!

What are you dedicating yourself to at the moment?
