I planned for today to be a day in front of the computer where I got lots of writing done. Well, the universe had other plans for me. Instead of working on lesson plans for the NFB of Nevada BELL Academy, instead of writing a long blog which was to include awesome photos from my half marathon, I have a laptop that won’t turn on and a sick kid to cuddle and listen to Harry Potter with.
Instead, I get to write this short blog post from my handy WordPress app on my phone.
A few years ago, I attended a leadership program on emotional intelligence. I walked away with a personal contract that said, “I am an unstoppable, courageous, and powerful woman.”
Today, three years of continued self discovery, self development, and lots of self compassion and self love later, I have a more fitting contract with myself.
The old contract came from the self that was still searching, still needing to prove something. The old contract screamed, “I am woman, hear me roar!”
This new contract comes from a self who owns her space, A self who is confident, having nothing to prove to anyone her worth, and a self who owns and loves herself wholeheartedly.
This new contract with myself reads, “I am a worthy, kind, confident woman.”
What would your contract with your self say?
Terri, my self contract would say I’m a confident human being, who refuses to let anything get in the way of living my life to the fullest, and uses the tools, strategies, and opportunities given to me to unlock and ultimately fulfill my hidden potential.
I love it!
