Your Word is Your Bond

No comments

If someone were to describe you, what words would they choose? What words do you wish they would say? Are you living a life that would have them see you that way?

I HAVE NOT!

The one thing that has been gnawing at me more than anything though is how I want to be a woman of my word, practice what I preach, someone people can depend and count on, consistent follow through. Trustworthy. And that just isn’t my track record. I have royally messed that up over the course of my life.

More than anything though, the trustworthy word gets me. Who wants to be described as UNTRUSTWORTHY?!

My lack of follow through has made me untrustworthy. Yikes. Not a great feeling.

So what does this mean?

I am now in a place where I am making huge strides in correcting my missteps. In changing my course.

If others don’t give me their full support, believe in me, or jump up and down in excitement… can I really blame them? Can I be upset that people will be annoyed at my goals and are just waiting for me to fail and/or give up? Should I be surprised that others might think this is just another phase?

Nope. Point blank. I have lost their trust. Why should they believe me?!

Good intentions are not a substitute for action!

Maybe that’s you too. Maybe you haven’t had a great track record of seeing things through, causing others to lose faith in you.

But I’m here to tell you, it’s never too late.

Great news! Trust can be earned! Make a course correction. Be better. Show those you care about that you can be trusted. That you will follow through. That you can be counted on. That your word does in fact mean something.

I still believe in you. I know you can do it.
