Beneficial Self-Talk

Remember this beneficial self-talk about your self-image: “I will view each day as a gift from my Creator. Right now, I am grateful to my Creator for all the good that I have experienced from the day I was born until this moment. Each and every day I gain more knowledge and wisdom. Each and every day I am committed to adding to the good that I can do. As long as I am alive, I will keep growing and developing my character. I will see myself as a soul who is on a Divine mission. My goal is to love my Creator and to love other people. I wish to bring joy to my Creator and joy to other people.”

((Life is Now: Creating moments of joy, courage, kindness, and serenity, p. 62))
