I choose to see myself and my life as having value, just as they are.
I am not going to tell myself I'm beautiful, smart, thin, curvy, strong, motivated, inspirational, handsome, rich or anything else.
I know those are things that can change and when they do, I may forget my sense of value.
I am also not going to hide the things I don't like for fear they diminish my value. I might feel depressed, lonely, sad, poor, ugly, fat, gross, angry and everything in between, but those are feelings, not definitions of who I am. I see them, and if they are in my past, I see and accept them there too.
I see it all, what I define as good and what I define as bad, because I know the truth:
I am valuable. That's all there is too it. In this moment, and no matter what may come, I know that myself and my life are valuable, just as they are.
