Words vs.doing

Words can be said to appease or delight, or with the best intentions.

The one who acts on the words they speak, shows their true intentions and honor.

Wanting to do something, and saying you will and actually doing it, are two different things.

I noticed lately that I want to do a lot of things, often say I will, expecting I can; and then do not follow through for whatever reason, and let down people in my life that I should not; most of all me.

It frustrates me to all ends when people do this to me; because it happens a lot; so I can only imagine what my children must feel like.

I really need to not say I am doing something, until I know for sure I can do it.

I try to stick to my word always; but I don’t or can’t sometimes.  Sucks to admit but true.

You can be the kindest person with the best intentions in the world;  but intentions never got anyone anywhere; and that’s about as basic as I can break it down to.

Actions speak louder than words ever could.

I personally aim to change this about myself; because I’m tired of letting down people close to me that I love, and myself; ’cause it sucks, and I know I can do better.

  1. Have you ever heard of the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and Janet Mills? It’s amazing! The four agreements are, 1. Be Impeccable With Your Word. 2. Don’t Take Anything Personally. 3. Don’t Make Assumptions. 4. Always Do Your Best.
    I never realized what a flake I was until I met Steven’s mother. Saying she would do something, and hardly ever following through. For me when I notice something I don’t like in others, a lot of times it’s something I also do. That is what the first agreement is all about. Be Impeccable With Your Word. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Now I am no expert on doing this. I over generalize, and over exaggerate also 😛 I say something and have full intentions of doing what I say at the time I say it, but then I just don’t follow through. I am working on this now though seeing how it affected me in my relationship with Steven’s mom. I couldn’t rely on or trust her. Well I want to be reliable and trusted. Baby steps 🙂 We didn’t get this way over night. Somethings took years for us to learn. *smiles* One day at a time. I love you.
