Daily Prayer of Acceptance

I accept myself completely.
I accept my strengthes and my weaknesses, my gifts and my shortcomings.
I accept myself completely as a human being.
I accept that I am here to learn and grow, and
I accept that I am learning and growing.
I accept the personality I've developed, and
I accept my power to heal and change.

I accept myself without condition or reservation.
I accept that the core of my being is goodness and that my essence is love, and
I accept that I sometimes forget that.

I accept myself completely, and in this acceptance
I find an ever-deepening inner strength.
From this place of strength, I accept my life fully and
I am open to the lessons it offers me each day.

I accept that within my mind are both fear and love, and
I accept my power to choose which I will experience as real.
I recognize that I experience only the results of my own choices.
I accept the times that I choose fear as part of my learning and healing process, and
I accept that I have the potential and power in any moment to choose love instead.

I accept mistakes as part of growth,
I am willing to forgive myself and give myself another chance.
I accept that my life is the expression of my thought, and
I commit myself to alligning my thoughts more and more each day with the Thought of Love.
I accept that I am an expression of this Love.
I am Love's hands, voice, and heart on Earth.

I accept my own life as a blessing and a gift.
My heart is open to recieve, and I am deeply grateful.
May I always share the gifts that I receive fully, freely, and joyfully.
I accept all that I was, all that I am, and all that I choose to become.

I first pasted this poem on a vision board I constructed in June of 2009.  At this time, each line was a stretch.  As I shared with my beautiful friend Margaret, having this poem on my vision board truly gave me something to aspire to.  I recently posted this on facebook - for me it was an accountability check . . . as I would strive to live it completely having shared my intentions with friends.
