Vow
Today I make a vow of tenderness. Of kindness. Of charity. Of patience. Of forgiveness. And of being human and present and real to all who cross my path today. Today I make a vow to pause before I express myself in a manner that might be arrogant, distasteful, disrespectful or unkind. Today I vow to make myself be as human and empathetic to others as I hope that they would be for me. Today I vow to restrain my crankiness and not allow my emotions to reign over or take precedent over the emotions of another. Today I vow that I will do all that I can to be good. I vow not to aspire to the supernatural or holy, but to be human, in the most basic and significantly honest way possible. Today I vow to breathe deeply of the goodness capable in humankind and to release all residiual stains and scars and crimes that otherwise chip at my soul and my being. Today I vow to be as good as I can be and nothing more. And certainly nothing less.

As much as I'd like to take credit for this vow myself, I must give credit to the radiant Min Jung, whose abundant joy and charming smile won the hearts of several of my Sisters at Pink Saturday.
