I Shall Allow Myself To....

I shall allow myself to feel capable -- so that I may seek excellence.
I shall allow myself to feel sadness -- so that joy may return.
I shall allow myself to feel happy -- so that I may be revitalized.
I shall allow myself to feel afraid -- so that I may find courage.
I shall allow myself to feel alone -- so that I may know me.
I shall allow myself to feel beautiful -- so that I may feel free.
I shall allow myself to feel lovable -- so that the loving may seek me.
I shall allow myself to feel pain -- so that I may heal.
I shall allow myself to feel worthy -- so that I may fulfill my purpose.

When I am centered, I see the perfection in the world, myself and others. When I find the world to be imperfect, I will take responsibility for painting it that way. I will look into the heart of a rose, or the eyes of a newborn baby and again know perfection.

I take responsibility for creating my own life story through the choices I have made -- to blame others is to give away my personal power. Who will I allow to write the next chapter of my life?

I shall make a small 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 journey ... People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
