A Promise to Mom and Dad


Today’s affirmation:

I am a capable woman worthy of love and respect.

Sometimes I have to remind myself of this fact!  I have raised three respectful, independent, caring children.  I was able to obtain my nursing license under extremely stressful conditions.  I have fought opposing opinions of my worth and value by others.  I have been through what others may have crumbled to – such as psychosis, delusions, emotional abuse, threatening to my body and spirit.  But by the grace of God, I have survived!  Never underestimate a capable woman.

I have decided that no longer am I the victim!  I can do and will do all that I need to live with joy.  I’m an honest and kind individual that deserves the same.  No longer am I living in my illness.  I am maintaining my illness and living in health!

I am woman, hear me roar!  Haha.  My mom and dad would see the humor in that statement from when I was a fifteen year old pregnant teenager and I declared that.

Mom and dad – this is for you!  I can and will make the most of my life.  This is a promise!
