The Promises I Never Keep
I wrote this during a moment of inspiration some years back.
You know, one of those moments when you sit down and dream of how you can change things in your life for the better.
I sat down and wrote these simple yet deep promises to myself.
They still resonate with me today…and mostly since they are hardly accomplished on a recurring basis.
I will plan
I will plan more and well in advance but still be happily aware of the present
I will live fully
I will live my life to the fullest and do what I enjoy as long as it builds me; as long as it doesn’t break me
I will forgive and move on
I will forgive, acknowledge the bad, learn from it and move on
I will not be afraid
I will not be afraid to go for what I believe is part of the life I want to live
I will cherish
I will cherish my ideas and act on those that I have to; Cherish others, especially those I need in my life
I will create
I will create and be creative with every aspect of my life: as long as it is legal and progressive
I will listen
I will listen to what is said around me so as to learn from others and better use the extra GBs of brain space I always have left
I will give my all
I will give my all to promote all-rounded excellence in everything I do
I will inspire others
I will inspire others to live life at their best and to become the best versions of themselves
I will enjoy beauty
I will enjoy the beauty of everyday and acknowledge it whenever possible
I will think
I will think up my decisions carefully and efficiently
I will act
I will act on my positive whims when I need to: If it comes to my mind then it needs to be acted on right away!
I will make the best
I will make the best out of all situations to enhance my experience and over-extend my potential
I will speak out
I will speak out when I need to and do it appropriately; at best, encourage others to do the same
I will believe
I will believe beyond what is possible and what is impossible
Now the hard part: Implementation!
