Day 7:Whole and Complete
I am whole, perfect and complete, just as I am.
Q: Do you believe you are whole and complete, with nothing lacking?
A: Some days, especially when I am in control of my eating, I feel that I am whole an complete with nothing lacking. Other days, like when I fall off the healthy eating wagon, I feel like I'm not good enough or worthy.
Q: Are you ready to accept that your life is unfolding in perfect, divine order?
A: Yes, I am ready to accept that my life is unfolding in perfect, divine order
Day 6: Honoring the Body
I love and honor this body that is uniquely mine..Believe lovingly in self-trust, self-confidence & self-worth
Q: What is the one step you can take today to honor your body?
A: Take a deep breath. Feed it nutritious healthy food at dinner outing tonight to celebrate friend's big birthday
Q: What other step can you take beginning tomorrow?:
A: Plan to take a bath
Day 5: Self-Confidence
The more I live my passion, the more my self-confidence grows.
Q: If you lack confidence, when & where did the feelings begin?
A: My self image began when I was a child. In her efforts to make me the best I could be, my mom was continually re-inventing me, by either giving me more food to fatten a skinny baby who wasn't a great eater (cultural), having me skip breakfast to then lose weight when I got chubby (although photos don't reflect how I saw myself then), shaving my head at age 6 to supposedly relax unruly curly hair (which might actually have had the opposite affect), professionally relaxing my hair, etc...(all made me a more mindful mom to my daughter now)
Q:. If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you love to do?
A: If I knew I couldn't fail, I'd quit my job & start my own company mentoring other people with a poor self image.
Day 4: Inner Dialogue
As I look in the mirror, I acknowledge my reflection as a beautiful expression of the universe.
Q: Is there anything you continually tell yourself that doesn’t serve you?
A; I am fat & not as smart as some other people.
Q: Are you aware of the words you speak to yourself, either out loud or silently?
A: I am my own worst critic & hard on myself. I am much kinder to others
The one person I need to please is myself. Only as I accept myself, will others accept me. I will remember to speak to myself with love. I am committing to living from the inside out.
Day 3: The Perfection of Imperfection
I am whole, perfect and complete, just the way I am.
Day 2: Letting go of the Past
As I let go of the past, I move forward to a state of freedom, trust & happiness...
Day 1: Journey into Mastery
I live my life from a center of stillness, which is the true source of love, joy & fearlessness.
