For the past few years, I’ve had a hard time keeping promises I make to myself. Even when it’s something I genuinely want to do, like writing and posting every day for a month. I’ve never been able to figure out exactly why, except I suspect it’s something to do with the fact┬áthat sometimes I feel equally terrified by the prospect of success and the prospect of failure.

All this to say that it’s 11 pm and I’m writing this micro post fulfill my promise to myself to post every day. Because I want to be someone who keeps serious promises made to myself. I think I’d be happier for it.
