Keep the Promises You Make to Yourself!

I was indulging myself a while back with some Dove Dark Chocolate when I came across this admonition on the inside of my wrapper. Wow! I really needed to hear that. It got me thinking.

I will follow through with something for someone else, but I really don't keep the promises I make to myself. Whether it be to eat more healthy foods, exercise more often, blog more frequently, keep the clutter cleaned up, keep in better touch with my family and friends, or keep up with my daily quiet time, I just always seem to fall short in some way.

I have made schedules many times, written lists, even asked Andrew to keep me accountable.

What happens?

I ignore the schedule, procrastinate on my lists, and gripe at Andrew for "nagging" me about the task. Crazy isn't it?

So, I will try again! I am going to try to keep the promises I make to myself. Huh! Who needs a counselor when you have Dove chocolate?

What about you? What do you do to keep your promises to yourself?

Hi Tiff~ Don't mind if I do, I have been called that my entire life by family members:)

We have at least two things in common: We both get called Tiff, even when we don't want to be -- and we have both lost a baby. Mine was earlier, during pregnancy due to a cord accident, a precious baby boy.

So I marked your blog awhile back and read each post. I thought I'd say hi so you know I am here. Blessings, The "other" Tiffany

My promise to myself is to keep God first, family second, then everything else.

I guess I know my limitations so I don't make promises to myself that I know I may not keep. They're more like suggestions.

LOL! Wow, Kailani! That sounds like the pirates' code. :)
