I often find myself uttering these words as if it somehow gets me off the hook for not actually calling, writing, whatever the action was that I really did think about doing sooner. I suppose that I am looking for the credit for thinking about it. But if life worked that way, if we got credit for thinking about things, then wouldn’t we all be richer, thinner/heavier, healthier, etc?
So, I guess it doesn’t work that way and I should just start leaving off the “I meant to…” from my vocabulary. Either I will do it in the moment I think about it or I wont, but I shouldn’t get the credit for not following through on a thought.
