My vows

I vow to live as an instrument of peace.  To live a simple, sincere, gentle and serene life.  
 
I will cultivate cheerfulness, compassion, and hope.  Only speaking words that are true, necessary, and kind.
 
I shall exercise economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, diligence in my faith, and fidelity to every trust.  
 
Where there is darkness, I will bring light.  Where there is intolerance, I will bring understanding.  Where there is despair, I will bring hope.  Where there is sadness I will bring joy.
 
I shall not seek to be consoled, but to console.  To understand, and not be understood.  To love, and to be loved.
 
My soul is open, and my heart is ready.

    I am always moved by Meg’s words of wisdom and how she lives. Thank you, Meg!

  2. I love your words. I love to be able to do the same. I have always wanted that, I have always tried, and have even been bullied for this. I was called in a negative way “Mother Theresa” or “Virgin Mary”, but what they don’t know is that Mother Theresa is one of my Idols and I would be very proud to be compared to her.
    Those words are amazing. I love this :” I shall not seek to be consoled, but to console. To understand, and not be understood. To love, and to be loved.” I will keep trying. I feel I am failing but I will certainly keep trying

    • You are far from failing – you inspire me! And I also think to be compared to Mother Theresa would be the ultimate compliment :-). She is one of my greatest inspirations. Keep on believing ♥
