From this day forward:
1. I do not apologize for stupid things--how much I weigh, the length of my hair, my financial situation, my age. I do the best I can with what I have; it's good enough for me, and if it's not good enough for someone else, that's HIS problem, not mine.
2. I make healthy choices--about eating, and drinking, and exercise, and how I spend my time, and who I spend it with. As I live my life, I ask myself, "Will this activity/person help me get closer to achieving my goals, or take me farther away from them?" and make decisions accordingly.
3. While recognizing that it is impossible to avoid every bump in the road, I acknowledge that the obstacles in my path might actually turn out to be in my best interest in the long run, and consider the possibilities provided by an alternate, potentially better, route.
4. I count my blessings--and they are abundant!--every day. I take NOTHING for granted. Keeping my attention on the positive things in my life will help make the inevitable negative experiences more bearable.
That is all.
