It all springs forth from within.
Everything begins with a thought.
I can determine the kind of life I live
by the very thoughts I tend to (and respond to,)
by the words I use, the people I associate with, and
the way I act.
Reality is almost a moot point.
Any manner of discomfort or difficulty
can be overcome by Deciding to do so.
By toughening up and Becoming Strong.
I can Choose that no sideways comment is going
to derail my Decision to have a great day (No Matter What.)
I can Choose that I am the most important person
in My World, the center of My Universe,
and only me and My Path is worthy of my time.
I will not allow disrespect or disregard
to influence me.
I Determine what sort of day I want to have,
and everything else unfurls from that Choice.
I am not prey or victim to any person, place, or thing.
I am a Survivor.
I am Determined to be at Peace.
I Choose Empowerment.
I am Connected to My Needs
and I act in accordance with them.
If not me, then who?
My world is a byproduct of my level of Love for Self.
The disaster of the past was a reflection of this
in a negative context.
Now, my Esteem and Confidence and Love
Determines a new reality,
from a new directive.
While the world might fall around me,
I will be at Peace.
I will be Whole.
I will be Strong.
And thus, it is so.
