I live in the present moment. I understand that I cannot change the past and the future is always unknown. I am comfortable benig here and now.
I will be kind to myself and others. I will talk to myself as I would talk to someone I love. I will dedicate my practice to those who treasure me.
I am enough. I know that whoever I am today is exactly who I need to be. External messages do not diminish my sense of worth.
Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation unacceptable to me and I can find no serenity until I accept that situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.
I treat myself with love and compassion. I know that I deserve respect and kindness just as much as everyone else.
Be kind enough to forgive yourself. “I wish I could have lived my life without making any wrong turns. But a path like that doesn’t exist. We fall. We trip. We get lost. We find our way back.” Don’t beat yourself up. You have to say “I am forgiven” again and again until it becomes the story you believe about yourself.
