So I thought I'd write some down.
I will not stop writing.
I will not stop living life to the fullest.
I will not stop feeling.
I will not compromise myself.
I will be authentic.
I will keep learning.
I will take risks.
I will remember the lessons I've learned.
I will always forgive myself.
I will surround myself with people who make me happy.
I will seek laughter.
I will spread joy.
I will do good work.
I will have no regrets.
The difference between a promise and a guarantee is subtle, but it's there.
guarantee (noun):-a formal promise or assurance that certain conditions will be fulfilled
-something that gives a certainty of outcome
-a formal pledge
And so, if I uphold the promises I have made to myself, I guarantee that I will be happy.
