This is a brand new day...
The past has passed. This day is a gift, a day I have never seen before.
I am breathing in new health, gratitude, peace and love.
I have the tenacity to solve my challenges and create my goals.
I feel worthy of receiving respect, peace, love and the abundant life.
I am not in this world alone. I know other people around me have their
own pain, dreams, emotional issues, values and personal rights.
I'm learning to interact and serve others with respect, integrity and
I follow through on what I start. I am worthy, loving and capable of
achieving my personal definition of success. I am strong and know
what I want and what I am willing to work for. My worth is not
defined by marital status, age, race, religion, job, gender, body
image, income, address, car or accomplishments.
This is a brand new day to live without apology and to live with
gratitude, courage, hope, love, discernment and faith. I am growing
each day with inner strength to overcome the challenges of life.
I'm learning everyday to forgive myself and draw emotional
boundaries around those who have hurt me as I release my anger
and forgive them. I am taking better care of myself. When I
experience the "joy stealers" of depression, guilt, low self-esteem,
clutter, fear, doubt, temptation or procrastination ... I am willing to
recognize and resolve my unhealthy patterns. I'm learning that all
relationships are teachers. I am developing wise judgment and
boundaries to know which people in my life are the lifters and which
ones are the leaners. I am using my time, talent and treasures in
better ways because I realize that each day is a gift. Today I am
focused on my goals and priorities because I am learning how
to keep the main thing...THE MAIN THING! I choose to live on
higher ground and not drown in the sea of negativity, self-pity and
unfulfillment. My life is growing in a positive new direction.
I am feel worthy, ready and open to receive "unusual blessings."
I am too blessed to be stressed. I see and feel something new in myself
and in those around me. My possibilities and potential for success are
unlimited. I am discovering the truth that sets me free to be more
whole, relaxed, trusting, active and optimistic. I am always in the
right place at the right time with the right outlook. My very presence
impacts others in a positive way. I am attracting into my life people
and circumstances to take my life to the next level of awareness and
abundance. Those things that use to tempt and tear me apart, no
longer hold so much power over me because I am learning each day
how to stay in the light of God's power, peace, protection, provision
and a positive state of mind. This is a brand new day and I will be
glad in it. Yes, there will be issues out of my control and yet
opportunities to grow in my faith and courage. No matter what
challenges or changes I must face today, this is the day the Lord has
made. I am still here and there is nothing that is going to happen
today that my God and I together can't handle. I will do my best to
reduce my stress and until further notice...God is in charge.
