More on the Promises Book

I posted some images on the Promises book on my Art a Day Blog but this blog I feel is my More in Depth blog so I wanted to say more about it over here.

Many of the Brave Girls from Soul Restoration were left with a final task to do a Promises Book for themselves. I think it was left very much to each person's discretion and thus left many people feeling uneasy because there was no guidance or direction.The way I understood it was that it was an ongoing thing and it did NOT have to be done by any certain time. It did NOT have to be done before SR2 it was something for us to do at our own free will and time. So that is what I have done. I use this book to help recenter me. To ground me. To bring be back to my lessons that I learned in SR1. To reclaim the Truths and Promises to myself to be True to Myself and not listen to those lies. To think positive thoughts about myself.

I have decided to take a leap and share these Promises with you. To the 33 followers who show themselves. To the other readers who don't openly say they are following, but I know you are there, to the anonymous followers and friends and the new ones who maybe, just maybe this will touch and reach out to and make a difference in the life of another. I share this for you...as well as for me to reaffirm these Promises in my own mind and to help me remember them. :)

 Sometimes we slip and we forget to remember
that we don't have to be perfect
that it is ok if we slip
We often forget to remember
that this is really what life is...
a big journey
where we must
just keep trying
everyday
every single day
just keep trying
we must remember to remember
that we are here to learn
that we don't have to prove our worth
to anyone
ever
that it is ok
that we are clumsy
and it is ok
that we mess up
that we must be kind
to our clumsiness
and we must
get back up
when we mess up
and that little things matter
and that every person matters
that we EACH matter
...and that
what we each DO matters
...how we each LIVE our LIFE matters
...the words we say MATTER
YOU MATTER
I MATTER
Let's make the most of this beautiful life
Ready...
Set...
GO!

I will choose the Good News
I will do what it takes to feel joy each day
I will choose the people who see the very best in me
I will accept the kindness love and acceptance of others
I will stop to think about what I really really really want
(I will live my Truths)
(I will ignore the lies and listen for the truth)
I will stop to think about what I really really really love
I will remember the truth and ignore the lies
I will choose people who bring out the very best in me
I will turn to good things when difficult things happen
I will see myself the way I see others I deeply love
I will create boundries to protect and respect myself
I will spend time taking care of myself and honor that time
I will never settle for things that make me miserable
I will go where the peace is...in my heart and in my life
