I am important to me.

I am important to me.
There was a time when I did not believe that statement. I thought some very negative things about myself. It took me years to really believe in myself, and in the strength of God within me. I considered others as more beautiful, capable and powerful.
One day at a time, I have grown to understand that my life matters. It matters to me and to others. My work is important both to me, and to the community that I work in. I am making a difference in this world.
Today is a new day for all of us to rise up and shine!

Stop whatever you are doing and repeat after me -
• OUT LOUD!! •

"I am beautiful. I am worthy. I am capable. I matter. I may not know where I am going, I just know I need to take the first steps. My life is a journey and will test me at times -there will be moments that force me to bend but I-Will-Never-Break. I have been through the worst of times and though scarred, I am stronger for them. I will stop letting myself get in my own way and will be my own biggest motivator, confidant and friend. I will own my life as it is mine and belongs to no one - but me. If I fall down, I will simply pick myself back up. Because, I matter. I matter to those who love me and those I have yet to meet. I matter to my community. I matter to the world. Most of all - I matter to me."
