Three minutes are left in this day, so I must write quickly.
Even though I am pretty tired, and have an early appointment in the morning, I need to write for this blog.
Why? Because I said I would.
I find that keeping my word to myself — even if it is about something small and inconsequential — helps me to keep my word with others. It also makes me more mindful to say no more often. If I can’t follow through on a “Yes,” it’s not really a yes, anyway.
It’s just part of what Don Miguel Ruiz calls “being impeccable withyour word” in his book, The Four Agreements.
The clock strikes twelve. I wrote today. Why? Because I said I would.
