I am content. I pursue my own definition of success rather than comparing myself to others. I figure out my purpose in life and align my actions with my values. My personal goals are more important than external expectations.
I cultivate gratitude. I focus on what I have instead of wanting more.
I value relationships and experiences more than possessions. I appreciate my family and friends. I invest time and effort into building strong connections. I continue learning and taking on challenges that add to my knowledge and skills.
I shorten my to-do list. I distinguish between being busy and being productive. I eliminate unnecessary activities so I can devote more time to my top priorities.
I deal with stress constructively. I use meditation and prayer. I address the root issues instead of seeking comfort in excessive spending or overeating.
I limit my exposure to advertising. I notice when TV commercials and online messages try to sell me things that I can easily do without. I resist impulse purchases. I take my time and research my options.
I accept myself as I am. I know that I am worthy of love and respect. I take care of my mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing.
I let go of judgements so that I can accept others too.
Today, I recognize that I can be happy now without waiting for anything to change. I feel joyful and fulfilled. I am satisfied with myself and my life.
