Promises are words of good intent; A delay of your efforts: a word used to dig your own hole of regret.
From My Heart: Promises are made from the heart with good intentions to carry it out. Things happen. Things change. People are human and we all fall short. Promises because of Obligations or a feeling that it’s your Responsibilities are serious commitments. Your word and your promises will determine your worth. Keep your word, say what you mean, mean what you say and do what you say you will do; this portray character and integrity. A person is only as good as their word.
