Of all the promises one makes , the ones made to oneself are the toughest to keep.
No one knows our million faults and apprehensions better than we do and hence our constant attempt continues to keep them that way , hidden from the world. The struggle to lose that flab , the resolve to make those long pending calls to relatives and friends you last met at some wedding, the continued yearning to get a better life over the weekends than just getting wasted as a couch potato.
But that dance class you’ve been wanting to join , or the morning walk or the catching up on communication keeps getting pushed aside to the next day/next week / next century! Another promise brutally broken. And no one got the slightest of hint of the damage that it perhaps caused , including you.
Agreed life is too short to regret but its too important to be wasted doing things you’d rather not do. Like break promises for starters?
So be more patient, a little more content, a little more health-conscious and go ahead and write that travel post/junk the junk and head out for a walk / call up your college buddy for something else than a birthday wish. Go ahead make some promises to yourself . And keep them for a change.
