Give Yourself a Bow!

Good morning!

There was no excitement (like foxes) on my walk this morning, just an exciting realization!  I AM a one-of-a-kind person with unique abilities. There is no one exactly like me in the world!  It is freeing to know that not only am I a unique person; so are you, and not only is it impossible to be you… I do not have to strive to be you. When I was a kid, I had such a strong belief in myself.  So strong, that when I was around 3 years old, I went to the movies with my Aunt.  There was a part in the movie that made the people in the theater applaud. My belief in myself was so strong that I stood up in my chair and bowed!

I really want to get back to that little girl. I know that I have tried and failed, many times to get in shape, and my self-belief waivers.  This walking goal is very good for me in more then making the 10,000 steps and improving my health, which are very important.  This walking goal and reporting my progress is really helping me get back to the little girl who stood up in her chair and bowed.  I am so happy to share this journey with you.

“Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstances.”

Bruce Barton, American congressman (1886-1967)

Today, think about a time in your life when you felt so good about yourself that you would have stood up in a movie theater and bowed during applause.  Feel free to post your thoughts here.  I can tell you from experience that it is really affirming to see good things about yourself on paper or the Internet.  LOL!

AffirMINTion: I am a wonderful person filled with one-of-a-kind value, worth, and love

Here is a little exercise:  Get out a note card or a piece of paper.  Close your eyes.  Who is the first person that comes to your mind?  Write that person (even if it is you) a note that starts – When I think of (fill in the name), I think of… sign it, address the envelope, put a stamp on it, and mail it today, or Thursday (tomorrow never comes).

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

Life is good!

  2. OF course Ben would post a comment and like this one becasue he thinks the world evolves around him too. I am thankful for this post because it REALLY explains a lot. I had no idea idea that Deb thinking it is all about her started when she was 3 – Thanks Deb you cleared up so much for me – HA –

    Of course I am kidding – you deserve applause every day! You go MINT

  3. Deb – I realized today how much I look forward to reading your daily morning updates. They make me pause and think about my own goals, triumps, set backs and life lessons. Please don’t quit…whether or not you know how many steps you walked or how many times you bowed 🙂 thanks for making me recall I do believe in myself – I just don’t think about it that way everyday.
