The Vow.

Last night Kyle and I sat down to watch a movie I've been dying to see, The Vow. There were two reasons I wanted to watch this flick: 1. I'm a sap who loves a great chick flick and 2. Channing Tatum, need I say more! It was a great movie and it really got me thinking about my life and its journey. I started thinking of vows and no, not wedding vows but vows regarding my life. What would my vows to my life be? This was kind of a loaded question but it stayed on my mind, actually keeping me up until 2am, that and the cup of coffee I had after 7pm. What are the promises/vows I've made in regards to my life?

We all have our own vows deep inside us, they can be as simple as, I vow not to drink soda, to the harder, I vow not to judge others. As I laid in bed, I imagined myself standing in front of a mirror looking at myself saying my vows and helping me on the my journey to becoming my best self. This morning, I put these vows on paper and now I will share them with you.

What would your vows be?

My Vows.
I vow to smile more and frown less.
I vow to worry less, life is too short.
I vow to cherish the simple things, like the taste of an amazing caramel macchiato.
I vow to always put forth my best self, no one likes half efforts.
I vow to always remember that everyone is fighting their own battle, so don't judge.
I vow to be a good daughter, sister, and friend. Family is one of the most beautiful things on this earth.
I vow to be a good mate, to appreciate and never take for granted what love has to offer.
I vow to never stop being corny, it's part of who I am.
I vow to never give up, even when the path in front of me is full of fog.
and above all...
I vow to love, there is nothing greater then a heart filled with love.

Have you ever read the happiness project? She encourages her readers to make a list of commandments. She has a website/blog too- Gretchen Rubin.

Yep, I read the Happiness Project this past summer, such a great book! I believe used one of her lists as a "Quote of the Day", she shares some great advice.
