Do I promise?

by Shervin on December 30, 2013

Marriage vows between two people are celebrated around the world. Vows are expected to be kept. Have you heard of any ceremony where people make vows to themselves?

We make promises to others through vows. How often do we make promises to ourselves? Do you have a personal vow that you recite once in a while? If not, why not?

Do I promise?

Do I promise to love myself unconditionally?

Do I promise to lift myself up when I am down?

Do I promise to stay by myself in tough times?

Do I promise to use loving words toward myself?

Do I promise to smile at myself?

Do I promise to love myself as much as I love others?

Do I promise to follow my own advice that I give to others?

Do I promise to know what I desire by listening to my feelings?

Do I promise to learn from my mistakes and do not blame anyone?

Do I promise to challenge any unloving thought about myself?

Do I promise to be in the present so I can hear myself?

Do I promise to accept my looks and body the way they are?

Do I promise to love myself in health and sickness?

Do I promise to laugh often?

Do I promise to be curious and learn new things?

Do I promise to be playful?

Do I promise to always remember myself, the magical, pure child?

Do I promise to take ownership of my feelings?

Do I promise to love myself even though others may not?

Do I promise to have confidence in myself?

Do I promise to have trust in myself?

Do I promise to be truthful with myself?

Do I promise not to compare myself to anyone else?
