Today is my birthday, and instead of going on about how depressing it is to get older, or how it just feels like another day, I will take a different route. I would like to allow myself to take a moment to acknowledge some of the things I am accomplishing and that I like about me.

Today, I am a more honest me.
Today, I am a more aware me.
Today, I am a more rational me.
Today, I am a more vulnerable me.
Today, I look fear in the face and am not as scared as I once was.
Today, I recognize my strength.
Today, I am learning to love myself.
Today, I am a more real me.
Today, I give myself permission to just be.

Today, I have hope for more days like today.
