my word

I've realized recently that there is nothing more important in the entire world than keeping one's word.

I have made empty promises in my life and used my young age as a crutch. I'm too young to be so responsible. I can make mistakes because I'm young. I don't need to actually do what I said I would because they'll forgive me because I'm young.

No more.

I've been late to a million and two things. I've forgotten to get a birthday present more times than is acceptable. I've stood up people. I've turned in papers a week late. I've been careless with the excuse of being young.

I've told myself I'll learn someday, but if I keep up that mentality, I'll never learn.
Time to wake up and smell the adult life. Time to act and not be acted upon.
Time to make plans and not break them.
I'm done being a child.

Does anyone else feel this way?
