Today, I will…make a promise to MYSELF and keep it


I feel keeping a promise to yourself is a direct reflection of the love you have for yourself. I used to make promises to myself and find them easy to break. Today, I love myself enough to not only make a promise to myself, but I love myself enough to keep that promise.  ~Steve Maraboli



I don’t know about you, but I am willing to go to the ends of the universe in order to keep a promise I made to someone. So, I wonder why I won’t do the same for myself.  I’m not talking about a new year’s resolution that may or may not have been made under the influence.  I am talking about a promise like giving myself downtime each week.  Being a single mom with a full time job, a fiancé, involved in charity work, a large group of family and friends; I find it hard to find time to decompress.  When I do try, it’s usually late at night which means that I am up late and tired in the morning.

So, today I PROMISE to allow myself to decompress at least once a week.  I am going to shut off my phone, stay off social media, close myself in my room and listen to music in the dark or read a good book or snuggle under the covers and watch a chick flick.

What types of promises do you make to yourself?  Do you keep them…break them?
