We pledge to strive to live each day, a Wholesome, Inspirational, Healthy, and Joyous life.

Wholesome because we strive:
-to eat only wholesome foods, and get a proper amount of exercise,
-to live every moment guided by principles based upon religion or which we deem to be in harmony with the universe,
-to refer to our guiding principles, often, because, once ingrained into our mind, they allow us -to avoid acting upon misguided thoughts and temptations, thus making right decisions far easier.

Inspirational because we strive to and usually achieve:
-to live an ordinary life of proper nutrition, exercise, and good will,
-to follow and learn from other persons, particularly persons of good will, that we may prosper and share that which we learned with others,
-to meditate upon, pray, or take such action, that all people, including the leaders of our country and the leaders of all other countries, even though we may disagree with them on critical issues, can likewise live (as best as possible) a life filled with joy and good will.

Healthy because, regardless of our current situation, we choose:
-to focus on what is right and the wonderful possibilities for us,
-to strive always eat wholesome foods and get a proper amount of exercise as best as we can,
-to reduce unhealthy stress by letting go the need to be right or to control the thoughts of others,
-to respect the right of others to differ and learn from them, but to value our own judgement in spite of the fact that others may condemn us,
-to otherwise focus on doing whats right for our body (both physically and mentally); and
-to promote peace so that the world can live free from chaos in order that we may strive to live with justice for all.

Joyous because, no matter how many ups and downs and burdens we endure, we choose:
-to be responsible for our own joy via the power of the spirit that is within us,
-to continue on our journey without blaming others or our situations for a lack of joy,
-to forgive others as well as ourselves for the past thus renewing our selves for a new start each day,
-to appreciate the intent of this pledge; and if possible, spread its joy to as many others in Sparkpeople as possible.
