Making a promise sometimes is an act of reminding oneself to not give in to temptation and to do the right thing. Also at times, it works as a commitment mechanism to make your loved one happy. Be it buying a doll for your daughter on the way back from work or taking your son to the air show on a weekend, it is an assurance factor and a way to show your love for your loved ones.
The joy of Easter is giving and receiving too. While we are busy with life and all its demands, this Easter, I would like to give some promises as a reminder to self about certain basic but very important facets of life. Here I begin;
I promise to eat as much chocolates and pudding I possibly want on Easter. No dieting on festivals.
I promise to host an Easter dinner and invite friends and family to celebrate and express our love for each other. Afterall what is a festival without family.
I promise to understand people I love more.
I promise to be more patient with people who don't meet my expectations.
I promise to bake a cake for charity.
I promise to love more and hate less.
I promise to live more and worry less.
I promise to listen more .
I promise to make people smile whenever I can.
I promise to be more forgiving.
I promise to be more Optimistic.
I promise to be less judgemental about people.
I promise to reconnect with an old friend.
I promise to say a little prayer when I hear an ambulance because it is a way to show gratitude for what happened to me in my life.
Last but not the least;
I promise to keep up the above promises.
Even though I forget, I will log on to selfavenue.com and read my promise list and remember that it is imperative for me to honour them and live by these promises.
