When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the right things a chance to catch up to you.


Promises.
A sacred vow between two people.
At least, that is what a promise used to be.
They are not always treasured or kept like one would hope.
Sometimes, a promise is abused, false, or simply broken.

Why is that always a bad thing?

Someone makes a promise in December.
All throughout the brutal winter, this promise is kept confidential.

Like it should be.
But then, the sun comes out and the snow slowly transcends into gray slush.
The streets are once again filled with giddy children eager for adventure.
Gradually that person thinks less and less of that once revered promise.


Perhaps the person does not even think of the one who once told them that promise.
These thoughts slowly descend until they are no longer considered important.

More pressing matters take its' place...

Anxieties over a new job


that new cute boy she works with that will not stop smiling at her



and money at her fingertips

What to do?

Promises.

They are not always treasured or kept like one would hope.
Sometimes, a promise is abused, false, or simply broken.

Is it really always such a bad thing?

What happens to a promise when the person who told you such things becomes unworthy of your confidence?
Sure, sometimes promises are abused.
Sometimes false information is spread through the pretense of something sacred.

But other times,
Promises are simply broken.


And that's really not always a bad thing.

Perhaps it is for the best.
