I vow not to let anything that happens this day rob me of my inner peace. I promise to treat every ignorant word as opportunity to teach, every unfortunate event as a chance to learn, and every happy moment as an opportunity to be grateful, without trying to possess it, control it, or make it permanent. I vow to live this day in my own skin, not wishing I were a different person, but striving to make my life, as it is today, a work of art and a gift to the world. I vow to spend this day as a good citizen of the whole, and to be an ambassador for the common good. I will be grateful for this day of life, remembering that the universe owes me nothing. Should I break any part of my vow, I will give no place to remorse, or shame, but time and time again, I will return to my path.
Peace be with you.
Beautiful! I shared the link. My vow is to try to live these wise words, one day at a time.
Thanks for stopping by the site and for sharing the idea. I’ll have to stop by PP for coffee some time.
What a profound way to say that. It helps to hear it. It means trying and failing and trying again.
