Sometimes it’s hard to be me, but I deeply and completely love and accept myself, I forgive myself, and anybody else, for contributing to this situation. I have issues like:

  • not having enough time to do all the things I want, but that’s ok
  • not completing things I start, but that’s ok
  • not being able to profit from the benefits that come from specializing; not making a commitment to a career, but that’s ok
  • having a tendency to be ungrounded; getting lost in plans or fantasies, but that’s ok
  • feeling confined when I’m in a one-to-one relationship, but that’s ok

But hey! Life is mostly good. I choose to appreciate myself for:

  • being optimistic and not letting life’s troubles get me down
  • being spontaneous and free-spirited
  • being outspoken and outrageous. It’s part of the fun.
  • being generous and trying to make the world a better place
  • having the guts to take risks and to try exciting adventures
  • having such varied interests and abilities
