my life journey on this planet I shall start each day with the following
am capable, I am worthwhile, I am beautiful, I am lovable. I shall accept
both my strengths and my weaknesses for they are me.
shall never 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

story through the choices I have made; to blame others is to give away my

courage to believe in a God or Higher Power who will laugh with me in the
sunlight or cry with me in the darkness.
shall make a 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
