The Queen of My Self


 Is when we celebrate love. It is an ideal time to think about loving and caring for ourselves, which is where all love and nurturing comes from. We can’t say, “I love you” unless we can say, “I”!

You know what?
I like myself.
I trust myself.
I know myself.
I know what I want.
I know what I need.
I know what I have.
I know what I know.
I mean well.
I try hard.
I do good.
I help.
I heal.
I hear.
I love.
I feel.
I fall down.
I stand up.
I strive.
I survive.
I flourish.
I thrive.
