“… my assets are the foundation upon which my new, healthier life is being built.” – Courage to Change
So often in program the focus is on eradicating unhealthy behavior or defects and learning new tools. That’s really important. But equally important is learning to really, accept, love and believe in ourselves. Looking in the mirror I don’t just say “I love you James”. Rather, I’ve learned to also list off all the things I do love about myself. In this way I remember each day to be grateful I am me, a really cool guy who is a hard worker, great dad, husband, man, friend and lover of life. It’s a beautiful day in sunny Santa Monica and ILML!
