I Declare!

June 15, 2009

Today my counselor suggested I create “declarations” about myself – things that I want to be true about me. They don’t have to be true now, but they do have to be written in present tense. She said they could cover several things or focus on one aspect of my life, and they shouldn’t be too complicated because they need to be things I can memorize and repeat back to myself.

So, here is my rough draft of declarations:

I am thin, pretty and healthy. I take care of my body and I feel beautiful every day.

I love to exercise and I treat my body well.

I am a successful woman with a large amount of energy, drive, ambition and vision.

I love my job, I am good at it and it is a great source of fulfillment and energy for me.

I am truly excited to go to work each day.

I am in an exciting, nurturing relationship with a partner who wants to give to me and gratefully receives what I have to give him.

I am a conscientious house-keeper with a nice comfortable home that is clean, orderly and lovely.

I will have to pare it down so that I can memorize and internalize this stuff eventually, and I will probably only work on part of it at a time, but I’m excited. I’m also sure there is more stuff to add to the list, but that’s all I can think of right now. I think I’ll start on the “me” stuff and work on the relationship stuff later.

Do any of you guys have this sort of list? If so, what’s on your list? Is there anything you think I should add to my list?
