with ME! Yes, me! I reached inside myself and extracted every bit of will, strength, determination and whatever else was hidden inside me to feel better. I began a real love affair. This time with someone who I knew had learned her lesson and would treat me well. Treat me wonderfully. That person would be me.
I have chosen to be happy in love with me, taking a long, hard look at myself. I now believe that I am attractive and smart too. I am a bona fide, genuine, veritable, honest-to-goodness, sho’ nuff Winner (with a capital “W”).
I am letting go all those negative thoughts about myself and replacing them with new and improved loving thoughts of me! I had dinner with a friend last week. We were talking about my blog and she remarked that it all seemed to focus around the mess-and-a-half. I told her how coincidental that she mentioned that as I had decided to turn it around and change the focus. Now, it is about me. All about me.
I chose to be happy in love with my world that is now a work-in-progress. I chose to renew my love and commitment to my children. I chose to love them for the people they are, for the people I raised them to be and for the love they each have given me. I chose to be happy in love with the children who are the Greatest Loves of my life!
I chose to be happy in love with the sister (and brother) friends who have supported me emotionally through the years. The friends who believed in me when I was struggling with who I am and what should I be doing with myself, my life. I chose to be happy in love with the friends who continued to believe in me when I was Chair of the Negative Committee. That committee tried to set up headquarters in my head, inside my heart. I shut it down!
I chose to be happy in love with my baby sister. The relationship has had its ups-and-downs but one thing I have discovered is — it too is an unconditional, unshakeable love. Why question the authenticity of that love? When someone expresses their love for you in a public forum, you can only receive it and say yep, she loves me. All is forgiven. We forge ahead.
I chose to be happy in love with my home, tending to it, repairing and making it a beautiful home. Of course, I chose to continue to be happy and in love with my pet companions — that’s a given. I chose to take care of myself and provide for my wants and needs, including my Bailey’s and Gummi Bears before I even think of everyone else’s! I come first!
I saw, I conquered and I persevered through some of life’s greatest challenges. I choose to be happy in love with my mistakes and all the parts of me that comprise the quintessential me — a wonderfully, bright, smart and attractive woman who can take on the toughest obstacle and emerge from it like the mythological phoenix standing erect with her head held high. I have chosen to be happy in love with my best friend in my great and wonderful world — ME!
I choose to be happy in love with me inspite of and despite my shortcomings, longcomings, idiosyncrasies or whatever. Everybody has some.
Thank you esteemology.com for my 2014 Affirmation: I am unapologetically, fiercely, authentically ME. This is all I have to be. It is all I will ever need to be. I was born good enough. It is my birthright. This is the next step in my global, spiritual awakening. I have embraced my uniqueness and am being happy and joyful, living an authentic life. I chose to be happy in love with me!
I chose to be happy in love with me, living a life that is better and more fulfilling, satisfying — a life I deserve. I choose to have only peace and love in my life. I choose to remove those friendships that are toxic, unhealthy, and which fail to add value to my world. I choose to be more discerning in my relationships.
I chose to be happy in love with my God and his Saving Grace that has allowed me the strength to persevere, to forge ahead. My God is an awesome God!
