Self Acceptance from my notebooks:

The following are taken from my notebooks. They will I hope complement the self acceptance quotations given above as well as reveal a little more about my life and my thinking about life.

Self acceptance quotes - from my notebooks

Self acceptance is key to a happy, satisfying and productive life.

What do you pledge?

  • to life or yourself?
  • to others or yourself?
Uncover your life
  • Don't hide
  • Come out into the sun
  • Breathe the fresh air
  • Get the wind in your hair
  • Feel the wind on your back
  • Enjoy and explore
  • Make the most of this life
Find the beat of your own life. Find and experience and gain strength from it. Explore and bathe in it. Play to the beat of another or others and your search, if still unknown or hidden, will still be ongoing and 'incomplete'. Find your own way and your own calling. Be yourself.

Quietly, taking the things in, taking the moment in. Taking in your own life.

That's fair enough:

  • Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself
  • Be reasonable, fair and polite
  • Know when to stand your corner
  • Give as well as take
  • Be comfortable with who you are and your contribution
You are your best friend. Rediscover how you - your best friend - can turn your life round and be the best you can be.

Don't humiliate anybody. Rather build their confidence. Show you believe in them. (But first you must believe in yourself.)

If you're not good enough that's fine, that's OK. But don't make the excuse, that you can't do it.

Do you have a credibility issue?

Opportunities to do various things in life. 'I have proved myself to everyone.' Have you proved yourself to yourself?

Self control is good practice.

See the logic of life. All created for a purpose.

Don't fall for unsubstantiated promises.

Don't mislead yourself about your life.

'I learned to walk away when I needed to. It was folly to shut myself off from things.'

Appreciate life. Honor and respect your life. Make the most of your life. Give it your best shot. Don't scrimp and save for another day. Do your best today.
