I will start each day with three slow breaths.
The first a reminder to breathe,
The second to fuel mind and body,
The third to foster patience.
I will speak kindly to myself, honouring the strength it takes to heal.
I will respect all the faces of my healing, on my good days and my hard days.
I will move through the phases of grief, and gift myself permission to feel all emotions.
I will seek within myself and trust my own power to overcome.
I will allow others to assist me.
I will consider their advice, but honour my own wisdom above all.
I will allow others to support me.
When I grow weary I will take shelter in the arms of their faith, in their hope and their belief in me.
I will observe myself with interest and curiosity, so that I build my insight and take charge of my healing.
I will rest.
I will move
I will nourish myself with good people, good food, fresh air and joyful moments.
I will try new things – and I will try again and again.
I will forgive myself when I falter, and continue on each day to heal with grace, humility and a fierce devotion to SELF.
