Words of Inspiration

imagesThis is a great poem on loving and accepting yourself. Love who you are and what you do.

I accept myself completely. I accept my
strengths and my weaknesses, my gifts
and my shortcomings, my good points
and my faults.
I accept myself completely as a human
being and that I am here to learn 
grow, and that I am learning and 
I accept the personality I’ve
developed, and my power to heal and
change. I accept myself without condition or reservation.
I accept that the core of my being is
goodness and that my essence is love,
 and that I sometimes forget that. 
I accept myself completely, and in this
acceptance I find an ever-deepening 
inner strength. From this place of
strength, I accept my life fully and I am
open to the lessons it offers me today.
I accept that within my mind are both
fear and love, and I accept my power to
choose which I will experience as real
recognize that I experience only the
results of my own choices. I accept the
times that I choose fear as part of my
learning and healing process, and that
have the potential and power in any
moment to choose love instead.
I accept mistakes as part of growth, so
I am always willing to forgive myself and
give myself another chance. I accept
that my life is the expression of my
thought, and I commit myself to aligning
my thoughts more and more each day
with the Thought of Love.
I accept that I am an expression of this
Love. Love’s hands and voice and heart
on earth. I accept my own life as a
blessing and a gift. My heart is open to
receive, and I am deeply grateful. May
always share the gifts that I receive full, freely, and with joy.~~ Author Unknown
