A new galaxy of shining promises made to oneself are resolutions made with the utmost faith that self is listening and will carry out the plans. But self is inpredictable as a child playing in the street; it may dart in any direction according to the mood and to wharever catches its attention.
At the first sign of a challenge, self may bck and lean hard upon the old ways of doing things, no how wrong it may be. Resolutons do very little to change a way of living. Tehy are easily made and easily forgotten. There may be a sincere desire to keep a resolutio, but if self has not changed inwardly, little can depend on the outward change. It is said that we promise according to our hopes and perform according to our selfhsiness. Failure ot keep our promises to others is a disappointment, but failure within oneself is disaster. A little peformance is worth a host of promises on nay day that starts a new year.
