Hello Beautiful, how are you? Today I want to talk to you about the importance of keeping the promises you make to yourself and the reason for this is this was one of the most helpful tools when I was diagnosed with major depression, anxiety and ptsd. At the beginning my daily promises were only 3, today I am going to brush my teeth, I am going to have one meal and I am going to shower, I know it sound silly, and maybe you are asking yourself don’t we all do that? But the answer is no and in moments like this start small but being consistent is key.
Maybe you have never experience what I did but do you agree that on the clamor of external demands and responsibilities, we often overlook the most crucial relationship we have – the one with ourselves. We make promises to ourselves, grand or fleeting, with the intention of self-improvement, personal growth, and fulfillment. Yet, as life's whirlwind sweeps us along, these promises often fade into the background, relegated to the realm of unfulfilled dreams and lingering regrets.
The truth is, keeping promises to ourselves is not a mere act of self-indulgence; it is an act of self-love, a testament to our value and worth. When we honor our commitments to ourselves, we demonstrate unwavering trust in our own abilities and a deep respect for our personal aspirations.
Each promise we fulfill, whether it's dedicating time to a passion project, nurturing our physical well-being, or pursuing a long-held dream, is a victory in the ongoing battle against self-doubt and procrastination. It's a resounding affirmation that we are capable, worthy, and deserving of our own happiness and fulfillment.
The benefits of keeping promises to ourselves extend far beyond the immediate gratification of achieving a goal. By cultivating a sense of self-reliability, we foster self-esteem, resilience, and a profound sense of inner peace. We become our own allies, dependable and supportive, standing tall in the face of challenges and setbacks.
The journey of keeping promises to ourselves is not always smooth or straightforward. There will be moments of temptation, when the allure of distractions and the weight of external demands threaten to derail our resolve. But it is in these moments that we must dig deep, summoning the strength and determination that lie dormant within us.
Remember, each promise we keep, no matter how small, is a step towards a more fulfilling, authentic, and self-assured version of ourselves. It's a declaration that we are committed to our own growth, happiness, and well-being.
So, let us make a pact with ourselves, a promise to honor the commitments we make to ourselves, big and small. Let us embark on a journey of self-discovery, fueled by the unwavering belief in our own potential. For in doing so, we not only enhance our own lives but also inspire those around us to embrace their own dreams and aspirations.
Let us begin today, with a single promise to ourselves, and watch as a ripple effect of self-love and fulfillment spreads throughout our lives!
