The folks at Women's Web want to know what about me is worthy of a celebration.
There are a number of things I like about myself. And there are a number of things I don't.
But I won't let the nice things about me become a reason for my liking me. I won't let the unpleasant things about me become a reason for my disliking me.
I like me, as I am.
That does not mean I don't value the good things about me. That does not mean I will not strive to change the bad things in me.
But I will accept the fact that with both the good and bad, I am me.
And since I am me, and I am all that I will have for certain all my life, I will not dislike me. I will not judge me, I will not demean me.
I will not let other people's ideas about how I should be, affect me or the way I live.
I will not expend needless energy in unproductive thoughts and worries.
I know I will have moments of gloom and doom. But I will overcome them.
And I will love myself. Respect myself. Look after myself. Celebrate myself.
Today and every day.
