The biggest part of my recovery journey is trying to accept all the many parts of myself. I accept the times when I did well, the times when I was terrified, and the times when I was loving; the times when I was foolish and silly and the times when I was very bright and clever; the times when I had egg on my face, and the times when I was a winner. All of these are parts of myself. Most of my problems come from rejecting parts of myself not loving myself totally and unconditionally. I do not look back on my life with shame. I will learn from the past and enjoy the here and now.
This year I do the mental work for positive change:
I know until I make inner changes and am willing to do some ment work, nothing “out there” is going to change. The only thing I need to change is a thought- just a thought. So this year, I think of all the positive things I can do for myself. I must try to focus on positive thoughts. In this way I am beginning to do the mental work that will effect positive changes in me!
