I give my full attention to what I am doing now. I am aware and alert.
I let go of expectations. I accept reality. I deal with current conditions instead of resisting them. I love myself just as I am. I appreciate others without judging them or wishing that they were different.
I welcome change and tolerate discomfort. I know that living consciously requires effort. I examine my thoughts and feelings. I take worthwhile risks. I grow wiser and more skillful.
I treat myself and others with compassion. I am kind and forgiving. I free myself from anger and resentment.
I overcome challenges. Conscious living gives me greater strength and energy. I enjoy a sense of purpose. I believe in my ability to create the results I want.
I simplify my life. I limit my consumption and distractions. I am content with what I have.
I savor my food. I plan healthy meals for my family and me. We sit down together to share nourishment and conversation.
I play with my children. They teach me how to use my imagination and have fun.
I meditate daily. I still my mind and sharpen my concentration. I gain insights about myself. I feel more connected and secure.
Today, I make conscious choices rather than automatically repeating old habits. I feel fully awake. I appreciate the beauty and peace that surrounds me.
