Promises to keep

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.  And miles to go before I sleep”  ~Robert Frost, Stopping by Woods on a snowy Evening

We talked about finding our “Why” in the first week at Psychosomatic Transformation Center.  Our “Why” is our own.  It is completely and utterly personal and, while they may share attributes or even sound exactly the same as someone else’s “Why”, it is fashioned after our own individual feelings and histories, our priorities and our unique individuality. 

Our “Why” is our promise.  It is the source of why we do what we do, why we lean-in when all we want to do is quit, and why we dust ourselves off and try again. 

Does thinking about your “Why” as – a ‘Promise to keep’ before you die – change the way you think about your “Why”?   Does it affirm your “Why” or does it change your “Why” in any way?
