I have participated in past years and appreciate how the challenge keeps me focused on self-care. After the holiday season I feel so good in January by completing each practice. Below is my manifesto for the 2018 challenge. I hope it inspires you!
This morning I wake up with sunshine in my mind, even if it is cloudy and grey outside.
I walk through the day knowing that I am in control of my reaction to everything. Healthy food and plenty of water fuel my body, helping my brain keep me in a balanced mood. I am aware of doubts that make me feel uncertain about my choices. I remember that my brain works in a way to make it easy for these thoughts to grow. I am a creature of habit. When negative thoughts invade, I know that I created those thoughts. Knowing this reminds me that I am powerful. This knowledge means that I can choose positive thoughts to motivate and inspire myself. I, like everybody, am powerful. Consciousness is my tool and my shield.
Today and every day, I choose to live in the present; to plan for my future, but not worry about it.
Today and every day, I search for compassion, knowledge, inner peace and peace on earth.
Today and every day, I know that I am surrounded by love from family and friends, from strangers who open their hearts to strangers.
My self-love manifesto is a deep knowing that I am in control This wisdom comes from my intuition, from centuries of wisdom passed down in my DNA. I remember that like everybody, am the result of ancestors lost to memory, of atoms dancing, of the same energy that is the universe. Remembering this, I love myself unconditionally because I am perfectly imperfect.
Peace and hugs, Leah
