You deserve all that life has to offer and you deserve to be happy. If you’ve been struggling it is time to make a pledge to yourself.
Rather than beat yourself up for past mistakes, personal failings, or things you don’t like about yourself, make a commitment to yourself. Here is a simple pledge you can make:
I promise to let go of all the ugly, bad and hurtful things from my past. I will let go of the anger, feelings of resentment and all negative emotions that I have been holding on to. I will remember the lessons of the past, but focus on the times I felt loved and happy, kicking the rest to the curb. I release myself from the past and am no longer going to be the person who doesn’t believe in myself, or my dreams.
Today anything is possible! I am armed with Gods’ love at my side. I will answer the call to live an authentic life. I will live with a joyful Spirit and love the person I am, the person I was and the person I am yet to become. I will embrace my imperfections and not find fault with myself.
I will have patience with myself when I fail and find comfort in Gods’ love when I am hurting. I will accept that I am not perfect and that I am becoming a better version of myself every day. I will allow myself to shine so that all who meet me know they will have a safe place in my company.
I will love myself fully, smile more, and find something to be grateful for each day. This is my pledge to myself, to God and to the world.
Say this pledge to yourself every day until you believe it. If you are feeling down, stop, and remember, and repeat. It doesn’t have to be this pledge, it can be any promise to yourself to do better.
So, the next time you are internally struggling with negativity, stop and make a pledge to yourself.
