Are not excuses.
They put us us in a better position
To fulfil our commitments.
An adjustment is about a change in posture
Not a change of mind,
A shifting in your seat
Not getting up and leaving.
A vantage point
Not an exit point.
We will (or at least should) be held accountable for
Our promises to the people we serve and love.
And so, when “life happens”
And maybe we get tired
Maybe we aren’t making as much money as we hoped we would
Maybe we’d rather be sleeping
Or maybe we just don’t feel like it-
Still we find a way to honour our promises.
Because promises are made especially for the times
When we don’t feel like keeping them.
So, rather than looking for reasons to quit;
