Beach Walk 403 – Promises and Pressure

Promises are a feel good solution in the moment. But they can sure create pressure and disappointment on the way to being unfulfilled.

Of course, they can also ramp up the energy and help motivate me towards a short term goal. Nonetheless, since I am looking for ways to be happy and experience less pressure, I tend to avoid promises as much as possible! My urge to please and my pleasure in sharing often tempt me to make promises about this or that, but I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut when it comes to those two words, “I promise!”
