Well, okay, not a complete and utter failure, but I’ve let myself down.
Almost exactly one month ago, I took the pledge. I tried to make a small life change, and I’ll be honest—it’s been really difficult for me.
I’m not alone; at this point in time, over 135,000 others have taken the very same pledge. I wonder, though, how many have fallen. How many have broken their promise? How many more, like me, were good for a few days—weeks, even—but then went back to their old ways?
I’m hoping that writing this will help me to better realize the commitment I made only four weeks ago: I will not text while driving and will only use my handset if I need to speak on the phone while I am driving.
