How to be My Best Self

How to be My Best Self is a commitment and a declaration.

Here’s the commitment part:

I live my life within the trust of my truth.

I chose within my growing inner awareness.

Because I am present to me.

Because I begin within.

This begins the declaration:

I learn in each moment what my truth is from my open heart and my thoughtful, responsive mind.

I feel my body and acknowledge its intrinsic capacity, beauty, and value.

Every day I do my work to release whatever no longer serves me including outdated stories, limiting beliefs, thoughtless habits, and reactive triggers.

I am learning to be adaptable and flexible as I release the brittleness and blame of ego.

I am resilient and, when challenged, I am losing the habit of immediately blaming and judging myself as worthless.

In my body is strength; in my mind, courage; and in my heart, love.

Given all of this, I make this commitment and this declaration:

Each day I choose steps forward even as events push back because fear is losing its control over me.

For my journey has taught me that life is not about meeting a static standard of perfection.

Instead, I am learning the dynamic wisdom of my soul’s willing integration to be here, now.

My Best Self is a powerful, beautiful work-in-progress, open always to the unexpected shifts of my eternal being and becoming.

My Best Self is the present moment, truthful expression of my body, mind, heart, and soul in balance always with the energy of our magnificent Universe.

I claim my truth.

I unleash the best of me.

I embrace the richness of my life.

I dream, allowing the depths of me to arise and guide.

I am, always, my Best Self.
