Look at me! Check it out! I am grinning like a kid again!
I am one with the world in a flow of wonder!
Land, sea and sky join in my delight
My euphoria is a mystery
based on new-found wholeness, wellness, gratitude and honesty
Fresh energy drives me on; some great motivation enlightens me,
gleaming like a sun whose brightness disperses night’s gloom
Optimism flashes like lightning. I exude incorrigible enthusiasm
that no one even tries to repress
A mountain of troubled thoughts melts like a burning candle
Joyful life charges through me
Happiness flows throughout my world,
expanding like a light, endlessly into my universe
Everyone sees the new me that I have become,
even cynics concede there is something to cheer about.
Let anyone who depends on compulsions for satisfaction
admit that life becomes unmanageable.
Millions of people can testify to that
and teach how to overcome addictive tendencies
Faith in a restorative essence can overcome compulsions.
When I open myself to an inherent potential for healing
I am filled with happiness; goodness makes me whole
I am secure, lovable and capable,
saved from the destruction of dangerous habits
If you don’t believe me
just act as if it’s true
and the seed of renewal will grow with full-bloomed gratitude.
