I'm doing the
footwork. I'm making the daily choices--taking the time--to make the choices
that I know help keep me on track. I use my arms and hands, and I reach out
for help and support as needed.
I notice the
signs of spiritual well-being: I retain a sense of humor. I notice the
miracles around me--the drops of water on a leaf, the immense kindness of
other people throughout the day. I keep an attitude of gratitude for all
that is wonderful about my life. I notice "what's not wrong in myself
and my life!" I might send out thank you notes to people who have
been helpful to me. I take life on life's terms and accept what is present
in my life.
I trust that
things will be fine. I don't get all riled up. I respond better to chaos:
"stuff" happens and I will find a way to make it through the stuff with an
increasing sense of joy and inner balance.
I give service
to others, I help someone else. I try to be light and upbeat and share
others' pain and joys.
unconditionally love myself--as just where I am (and where I am not)
in life's journey. I'm actively participating in life. I take risks, I open
up, and I take time for myself to allow myself to grow socially,
spiritually, and mentally.
I have fun and
enjoy using the tools and resources that I discover. I use them to help my
life blossom into a luxuriant garden of verdant well-being!
I have an
increasing sense of serenity--my previous life imbalances and obsession with food are transformed. I find that I experience freedom from compulsive
behaviors. It feels clean and healthy.
lifestyle behavior choices feel easy and automatic. I carry around no
resentments towards myself or other people.
I have a center
of calm in the midst of chaos. I have learned how to pause and be quiet and
to notice what is going on around me and I intuitively understand how to
make better choices in a particular situation.
I don't compare
myself to others as I accept myself for the unique and marvelous being that
When I'm in the
middle of my daily activities, I have developed a watching sense (a
gentle observer) that notices my choices--what I do or don't do--and their
results in my life. I notice what works well for me and what choices don't
work so well, and how to make more effective choices in my life.
responsibility for my part in things. I know that I am responsible for my
I am generous
with my time, my money, and my support to others. I'm not hording things.
I don't take
things quite SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO seriously! I know that what I label as
"good or bad" just flows in and out in my life. This is only one moment. I
can learn from anything. All things will pass and transform and I have the
skills and increasing wisdom to learn how to best manage it all. I'm always
growing and learning. I learn how to celebrate life-long self-discovery.
Day after day,
I'm more confident and less confused. I feel more peace and less turmoil.
WOW! I'm so thankful.
