Who or what do you want to become? A good parent? A sober, recovering person? A good girlfriend, boyfriend, or spouse? Do you want to become happy, peaceful, tolerant? Don’t wait until you’re successful to tell yourself you’re that. Start now by saying you are what you want to become instead of reinforcing the words I’m not. Yes, you have much to learn. Yes, there’s a ways to go on that path. And you may not be proficient at it, or an expert, yet. But you don’t have to be to say those two little words I am.
Help create the new part of your personality by using and affirming those powerful words I am. Then watch as a new part of yourself emerges.
God, help me use my creative powers to create a better, more fulfilling life. Help me use the words I am to create who you and I want me to be…
