Promises REDUX

I was thumbing around some old files and came across this. It's just as poignant now as it was when I posted it a year and a half ago.


Promises are very important to me. Normally I wake up every morning and instead of goals for the day, I make a list of promises. There's power in that. You make a commitment to yourself. It's the difference between "I want to" and "I must."

As I was looking at my promises for today, I came to the conclusion that they were small and insignificant in my life. The "pay bills," "work on my business plan" stuff is nothing. So I sat down and wrote another set.

To my family:


* to thank you for helping me be the person I am today.
* to return the love and support you have given me.
* to forgive the things that hurt me.
* to recognize the wonderful things about you I see in me.
* to hug you often.
* to make you proud.
* to make you an important part of my life.

To my friends:


* to not lose touch.
* to appreciate the time we share together.
* to make time for you.
* to be there when you need me.
* to not be there when you don't.
* to make you laugh when you need it most.
* to be your shoulder when you need it most.
* to be the one you can always count on.
* to not judge you for being who you are.

To my future Love:


* to hold your hand.
* to always kiss you goodnight.
* to always kiss you goodbye.
* to make you feel loved.
* to forgive you when you hurt me.
* to apologize when I hurt you.
* to cherish the moments we share.
* to Love you completely, without compromise.
* to remind you how important you are to me.

To my future children:


* to help you experience new things.
* to play when possible.
* to support and encourage your dreams.
* to say yes when needed.
* to say no when needed.
* to help you love to learn.
* to look through your eyes in wonder.
* to tuck you in at night.
* to listen to what you have to say.
* to teach you to give.
* to be a role model.

To myself:


* to laugh often.
* to make every day more exceptional than the last.
* to Love as if I've never been hurt before.
* to leave the world better than I found it.
* to make a difference.
* to question.
* to learn something about everything.
* to learn everything about something.
* to learn something new each day.
* to live with passion.
* to remember those who matter most.
* to remember the things that matter.
* to forget things that don't.
* to Love unconditionally.
* to forgive constantly.

* to keep my promises.

I was at work in a meeting, when the agent I was working with needed to use the facilities. As I normally do, I hit the stumble button a few times.

And I got this...

Irony in action.

Let the Zombie Apocalypse Begin!

I would've never thought the Zombie Apocalypse would start in Britain, but then again...

Read the full article here.

"There has been a small outbreak of “zombism” in London due to mutation of the H1N1 virus into new strain: H1Z1.

Similar to a scare originally found in Cambodia back in 2005, victims of a new strain of the swine flu virus H1N1 have been reported in London.

After death, this virus is able to restart the heart of it’s victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believe to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”"

Time to dust off the machete and crowbar.

(Of course this is a hoax, but to the peeps that did it... well done. You win the internet.)
