The Courage to be Myself
"It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be
who you really are."
I have the courage to...
Embrace my strength ~ Get exited about life ~
Enjoy giving and receiving love ~ Face and transform my fears ~
Ask for help and support when I need it ~
Spring free of superwoman trap ~
Trust myself ~ Make my own decisions and choices-
Befriend myself ~ Talk as nicely to myself as I do to my plants~
Realize that I have emotional and practical rights~
Communicate lovingly with understanding as my goal~
Honor my own needs ~ Complete unfinished business~
Give myself credit for my accomplishments~
Love the little girl within me ~ Overcome my addiction to approval~
Grant myself permission to play ~ Quit being a responsibility sponge~
Feel all of my feelings and act on them appropriately~
Nurture others because I want to, not because I have to~
Choose what is right for me ~ Insist on being paid fairly for what I do~
Set limits and boundaries and stick by them ~
Say "yes" only when I really mean it ~ Have realistic expectations-
Take risks and accept change ~ Grow through challenges-
Be totally honest with myself ~
Correct erroneous beliefs and assumptions ~
Respect my vulnerabilities ~ Heal old and current wounds ~
Savor the mystery of Spirit ~ Wave good-bye to guilt ~
Plant "flower," not "weed" thoughts in my mind ~
Treat myself with respect and teach others to do the same ~
Fill my own cup first, then nourish others from the over flow ~
Own my own excellence ~ Plan for the future but in the present ~
Value my intuition and wisdom ~ Know that I am lovable ~
Celebrate the differences between men and women ~
Develop healthy, supportive relationships ~
Make forgiveness a priority ~ Accept myself as I am now ~
