For so long I dwell on promises of people and found disappointment. I have learned that the only true promises kept are the ones that come from God. These are grounded in stone. Even the promises we make to ourselves sometimes do not come to fruition. Why? Life gets in the way. Hardships and battles with the inner person triumphs over what you want to do. Don’t beat yourself up. Get up and start over. That is the beauty of promises made to yourself, you get a chance for a do over.
