The Vow

At a recent holiday party, a journalism colleague had a sleep-deprived, stressed look on his face. But the level of commitment was stronger than ever.

You see, the passion in one's eyes often outlasts the initial stress of a life blessing. Shakespeare tells us that the "eyes are the windows to the soul" and I want that look of commitment. A vow that supersedes anything remotely close to an obstacle.

Until that day comes...I will think back to December 2012 as a winter web intern for Redbook Magazine. I will look for the familiar red "R" on airport stands and probably smile with the work I completed for that publication.

It will be a culture shock to say the least, curating content for a women's magazine, but journalism has no boundaries. It all starts Friday - and I am ready.

Moreover, I vow to continue to shape myself into a better-rounded person.

I have started speaking about my Diabetic experiences in front of grade school children and I have taken up learning Spanish via in-car CDs.

While I still have many more vows to experience in my lifetime, I have started small and will continue to work my way up.
