I Am A Girl

(taken from Iyanla Vanzant’s book on self-esteem)

I am a girl.  I am an expression of beauty, joy, and love.
I have the right, the power,and the ability to create a beautiful, joyful, and peaceful world for myself and others.

I have a body, but I’m not my body.
I have a face, but I’m not my face.
I am the most important thing in the world to me.

I am love in motion.
I am the light of the world!
I can create;
I can make a mistake;
I can create something beautiful in all that I do.

I deserve the best.
I give my best.

I do my best to always take care of me.

I am a girl.  I am growing into a woman.
I am it.
I am the JOY the world is waiting for!
