I Shall

I shall

 

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 the 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 God.

 

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.
