Below are five promises that we need to make to ourselves…
I promise myself that I won’t stay discouraged. We all go through times where we feel discouraged in life, but the trouble starts when we stay that way. Stay motivated, hopeful, and keep faith in God.
I promise myself to use ‘no’ and ‘yes’ responsibly. Life becomes less chaotic when you can learn to say “no” to the things that rob you of your energy and peace. The word “Yes” is equally as powerful. “Yes, I need help.” “Yes, I want that.” “Yes, I do mind.” Use “yes” and “no” responsibly.
I promise myself I will do my part in this world. Our part in this world is quite simple – it’s to love others extravagantly. What would the world look like if people chose love? Yeshua said that all the law hangs on two commandments. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
I promise myself I will be true to myself. Be honest. Be transparent. Be authentic. Don’t shed your unique personality or dreams because of the opinion of others.
I promise myself I will show myself a good time. Many people miss out on amazing experiences because they are too shy or afraid to try something new. Choose to create new memories. Travel, explore, make friends, take lots of pictures, do things that you love. Step out of your shell and live.
