A pledge to myself and the universe

Posted by DreamSharer on April 21, 2012

I realized something last night…I realized how I have been in so much pain that I ended up giving up a lot of who I am. I realized that I have to remind myself of who I am and what I stand for every once in a while. I know I am not perfect and I know that I have some disabilities but I can never overcome that when I am not doing anything about it. So as hard as it is for me I sat down and thought of what I want to pledge to myself to get better and be a better person. Here’s my pledge which I will keep reminding myself of every time my hopes and spirits are down.


I pledge to give my best effort in all I do to continue to learn and improve. I will not let mistakes or fears of making a mistake stop me. I understand that mistakes are part of life and I can learn from my mistakes so I do not do them again. I will not compare myself to others as that creates jealousy and because I am giving my best and I am just as good as anyone and my skills will improve as I practice more.

I might fall short of my ideals sometimes, but I pledge that I will always try to do better, and I will try to learn from my mistakes.

I pledge to perform at my highest level at all times. I want to succeed in life so I will always keep trying my best.

I pledge to maximize my strengths while overcoming my weaknesses.

I pledge to not wallow in my mistakes — instead, staying positive and learning from them so I can become a better person.

I pledge to remember that success does not always equate to learning, nor does learning always result in success.

I pledge to reward myself whenever I achieve success.

I promise to be thankful for living every day.

I promise to be faithful to myself and others.

I promise to never take life for-granted and be thankful for all that I have.

I promise to have compassion.

I promise to never fear my emotions, love, hate, sadness, happiness, but learn to deal with them.

I promise that I’ll try to understand others and live with what life has given me.

I pledge to live my life to the fullest.

I pledge to be responsible for myself and compassionate towards others.

I pledge to love and respect myself and my friends and loved ones.

I pledge to “show up” in my life as myself, not as an imitation of anyone else.

I pledge to avoid using the word “just” to describe myself. For example, I won’t say, “I’m just a mother,” “I’m just a student” or “I’m just an ordinary person.”

I pledge to give myself ten minutes of silence and stillness every day to get in touch with my heart and hear my own voice.

I pledge to use my voice to connect my dreams to my actions.

I pledge to use my voice to empower myself and others.

I pledge to serve my community at least once a year in a way that will benefit other people.

I pledge to ask myself, “Who am I? What do I believe in? What am I grateful for? What do I want my life to stand for?”

I pledge to sit down and write my own mission statement.

I pledge to live my own legacy.

And I pledge to pass it on to my children.

I pledge to give myself credit for how far I’ve come and permission to continue learning and growing from my experiences AND my mistakes.

I pledge to honor my friends and family. To be patient, compassionate and non-judgmental.

I pledge to find and appreciate the joy in life. The small things. The outdoors. The fleeting moments.

I pledge to love myself more every day.

I pledge to put myself first and make my own happiness and vitality a top priority.

I pledge to give back to others – to make an impact on people’s lives.

I pledge to live by example. To live with integrity so that my thoughts, speech and action are aligned with my true self.

I pledge to express myself fully by doing what I love.

I pledge to acknowledge that pain and discomfort are necessary for growth and new experiences.

I pledge to see the beauty in all things and all people.

I pledge that I am not my past, nor my future, but my present – make the most of it

I pledge to slow down and be present

I pledge to love and care for myself as much as I love and care for those I hold most dear

I pledge to demonstrate interconnectivity with the universe by caring for, in my own special way, my fellow beings

I pledge to never stop learning, growing and challenging myself – especially when things are comfortable

I pledge to find joy everyday

I pledge to forgive and let go…

I pledge to never stop having fun!

I pledge to never stop believing in hope, goodness and fairy tales

I pledge to always be passionate and to strive for wisdom
