A Little Help from Myself

It’s okay to do things to help yourself.  In fact, it’s vital that you do this.  Some of us may have grown up in circumstances where we were taught that it isn’t okay to do this.  Others of us may find ourselves currently in situations where we’re led to believe that it’s selfish or wrong to help ourselves.  Or, perhaps you just never considered acting for your own benefit.

If helping yourself is a new experience for you and you aren’t sure enough of yourself yet so you’re looking to others for permission and approval, please let me be the one to give you this support and encouragement.

You have permission to help yourself.  You are approved to take the actions that will help you live the life of your dreams.  You are forgiven for having these goals and dreams.

Helping yourself, taking care of yourself, is some of the most important and noble work you can do.  By following through with these steps, you are honoring yourself, your family, and your friends.  You’re also honoring your community, your country, and the world.

Your homework is to find a place where you will be undisturbed for about 20 minutes.  Have a mirror handy.  Use the mirror to look at yourself right in the eyes.  Repeat the following:

I love you

I love you

I love you

I am approved

I am approved

I am approved

I have permission

I have permission

I have permission

My dreams are right and good

My dreams are right and good

My dreams are right and good

My dreams are right and good

My dreams are right and good

My dreams are right and good

 

I am forgiven

I am forgiven

I am forgiven

My slate is wiped clean

My slate is wiped clean

My slate is wiped clean

My slate is wiped clean

My slate is wiped clean

Thank you

Thank you

Thank you!

I love you

I love you

I love you

I love you!

Now go and take that step!  And post below in the comments section how you’re doing.

I am so very proud of you!

Your Friend,

Lauren

    1. This is so true, Julie. I’d love to hear about the wonderful treat you have planned for yourself. One of my favorite things to do is to sit in my yard with my eyes closed and then just listen to the sounds of Mother Nature. When I hear a sound, I challenge myself to think of other things it could be. For instance, the breeze through the leaves on the trees could also be ladies in taffeta gowns dancing or the sound that the wings of a flock of birds makes as the birds take flight. Enjoy your special treat! And, remember to do it often! ~Lauren
