Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday.
It is in the past
and the past will never change.
Only I can change
by choosing to do so.
Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow.
Tomorrow will always be there,
waiting for me to make the most of it.
But I cannot make the most of tomorrow
without first making the most of today.
Beginning today I will look in the mirror
and I will see a person
worthy of my respect and admiration.
This capable person looking back at me
is someone I enjoy spending time with,
and someone I would like to get to know better.
Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life.
I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world
and I will unselfishly share this gift with others.
I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others.
Beginning today I will take a moment to step off the beaten path
and to revel in the mysteries I encounter.
I will face challenges with courage and determination.
I will overcome what barriers there may be which
hinder my quest for growth and self-improvement.
Beginning today I will take life one day at a time,
one step at a time.
Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my positive self-image,
my desire to succeed,
or my capacity to love.
Beginning today I walk
with renewed faith in human kindness.
Regardless of what has gone before,
I believe there is hope
for a brighter
and better future.
Beginning today I will open my mind
and my heart.
I will welcome new experiences.
I will meet new people.
I will not expect perfection from myself, nor anyone else:
perfection does not exist in an imperfect world.
But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles.
Beginning today. . . I am responsible for my own happiness
and I will do things that make me happy . . .
admire the beautiful wonders of nature,
listen to my favorite music,
pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath . . .
pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures.
Beginning today I will learn something new;
I will try something different;
I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer.
I will change what I can and the rest I will let go.
I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.
And every day. 1
and learn how empowering it is to love yourself. 2
Sometimes we need to be reminded
that no matter how much the Creator loves us,
we need to also love ourselves through His/Her eyes. 3
In searching for our true life path we often forget
to look into our hearts and find self-love.
Love of self is not selfish,
but allows us to bring greater joy and love
into our hearts . . .
when we FIRST love ourselves unconditionally.
Remove the judgment and self-criticism
from your life, and begin to love yourself
the way you would love your child,
your best friend.
