January 4, 2013
Just found this, thought it was good too share.
I kept it in a file I have on my computer.\\During my life journey on this planet, I shall start each day with these affirmations:

I am capable. I am worthwhile.
I am beautiful. I am lovable.
I shall accept both my strengths and my weaknesses for they are me.
I shall never again believe the "lie" that if I make a mistake, I am a mistake. My mistakes are the learning tools that I shall encounter on my life journey. When I learn from my mistakes, I give them meaning. When I give my mistakes meaning, I can begin to forgive myself, I can begin to heal.
I shall not use my mistakes as excuses to give up on me - my mistakes are not me.
I shall seek the wisdom to nurture my heart, mind, body, and soul so that I may feel more centered - providing an energy reserve that allows me to climb the mountains in my own life providing an energy reserve that allows me to love and support others who are climbing a different mountain - providing an energy reserve that allows time for friends, play, and celebration of life.
I shall allow myself to feel capable - so that I may seek excellence.
I shall allow myself to feel sadness so that joy may return.
I shall allow myself to feel joy - so that I may be revitalized.
I shall allow myself to feel afraid - so that I may find courage.
I shall allow myself to feel alone - so that I may know me.
I shall allow myself to feel beautiful - so that I may feel free.
I shall allow myself to feel lovable - so that the loving may seek me.
I shall allow myself to feel pain - so that I may heal.
I shall allow myself to feel worthy - so that I may fulfill my purpose. When I am centered, I see the perfection in the world, myself and others. When I find the world to be imperfect, I will take responsibility for painting it that way.
I will look into the heart of a rose, or the eyes of a newborn baby and again know perfection.
I take responsibility for creating my own life story through the choices I have made; to blame others is to give away my personal power. Who will I allow to write the next chapter of my life?
I shall seek the courage to believe in a God or Higher Power who will laugh with me in the sunlight or cry with me in the darkness.
I shall make a small difference on this planet through the work I do - when I leave I will have done my share.
I shall live, love, laugh, and learn on my journey.
