Sometimes you just have to stop and remember…remember the truth about yourself. The days are hard, the road is steep, and you grow weary. You begin to feel that you may not have what it takes; that you are not enough. You question your worth, your value, your meaning or your purpose. We all face these moments (sometimes many times a day). And all of us need a little help to press forward; help to see the truth; help to remember who we really are and what we are capable of.
Here are some things we believe are true about you. Listen carefully and think about these statements.
- You are full of the greatest untapped natural human resource, Goodness.
- You are the only person uniquely suited to fulfill your role in the world.
- You are WORTHY OF LOVE.
- You are a resource of love and understanding for others.
- You are a being of incredible worth and value.
- You are the only “you” there will ever be in the history of the world.
- You are able to change the course of your life by changing the way you think.
There are many other statements that you can say about yourself that are true. Think about your “I am”s….. I am strong, creative, kind, open, resilient, interesting, determined, tender, thoughtful, bold, inspiring, confident, giving, loving, helpful, genuine… (Seek out the words that are true about you). It is imperative that you keep the truth about yourself in front of you all the time. You must honestly acknowledge the good and the not so good parts of you. Know yourself. For the parts of you that need to change, be honest. “I am selfish, but I am able to change!” Test what you are thinking in the moment against what you know to be true about yourself. See which thoughts are real and which are counterfeit. Fight for a mind free of any false beliefs.
A “touchstone” is a hard black stone used to test the quality of gold or silver. It tells you what is true. We encourage you to use a symbolic touchstone as a daily reminder of the truth about you. We have created an original “I am…” touchstone as a tool for you. We hope you will use it to help keep yourself focused on the ability you have to overcome, to change, to live a life you are proud of. We believe in the power of the truth to change us all.
Purchase a Touchstone from our store or find some kind of tool that helps draw you back to what is true about you. You are worth fighting for. You are…
“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” ~ Christopher Robin to Pooh
Remember the truth about you!
