I am strong. I am happy when I am busy and I have no fear. I challenge myself to accomplish a lot during the holidays because I enjoy the fulfillment it gives me. I like to do things each day.

Spending time with family and friends is important to me. I enjoy the time with others and find that it helps me to stay happy and joyful.

When I am busy, worries and stress leave my mind. I push any cares aside and focus on the task at hand. As I become more focused, I find my enjoyment of the present moment rising. I remain mentally acute and happy regardless of what life brings my way. I know the importance of peace.

Staying peaceful and strong is a choice I make. I am the master of my thoughts and my destiny. Holiday challenges that used to frighten or upset me excite me today. I take on each challenge as I come to it and stay mentally strong. I welcome these obstacles and embrace them each time they appear.

Facing challenges, instead of attempting to avoid them is one of the many ways I keep my mind strong. By living my life this way, I stay committed to moving forward.

Today, I am strong and I am able to face my busy life.
