Did I really promise? Is it a promise if the words “I promise” are not said? Is the promise inferred? Is it that ‘you’ are wanting / hoping / needing me to do what it is that I said I would do?
Life gets in the way, A LOT! Oh my, if only, EVERYTHING that we all said, just said that we would do could, at the flick of a finger, just happen. That what the other people in our lives do wouldn’t / couldn’t interfere with our plans. And on that note, why do some people take such pleasure in the fouling of others plans or even if they don’t take the pleasure, why do they interfere? I mean really, don’t they have much better things to be doing with their time? Or are they just filling in the time they have on their hands because they too are waiting?
Waiting for the computer to load. Waiting for the kettle to boil. Waiting for the light to turn green so you can go. Waiting…
I’ve decided, I’m far more impatient with all that is outside of my control and extremely more patient with me.
If, and I do mean if, I promised to do something, it is a work in progress, meaning I AM working at fulfilling my promise. Life does get in the way, though. Computers crash, the unforeseen interruptions of the interference of others, the spirit is willing, but the body is full of pain that wasn’t there when the promise was made.
Or was it something that was said that was more of a hope & a wish than a promise?
I’m getting there…
