Affirmation for Addiction
I am a person of worth – my life matters. I have a place where I am right now – a place that is positive. And even if I don’t quite see that place yet, as I get better that place will become evident. I am important to someone though maybe right now I am confused who that is. I have today – the present. What happened in the past has shaped who I am today. And though there are elements of that past that are very hurtful, fearful, harmful and hateful, I have the power within to allow healing from these things. I yet don’t have tomorrow. But that is fine – tomorrow will take care of and unfold as it will. I have THE PRESENT – a gift from the Creator that is “my time.” Today I have the opportunity to do something different – something better – something that is healthy. But that presents a choice. And the choice I make will either keep me where I am, move me further in an unhealthy direction or will move me toward the better. Change is scary – especially if I allow my past to cloud my mind I continue not believing me – supporting me – affirming me.
Today I will take the present and make a change – even if it is only a little one. But the change I make I will continue to do for every “today” I have. I have a PRESENT just waiting to be opened and used. I choose the PRESENT that builds me up – not tears me down. I choose the moment and not all of those past hurts and disappointments because today I have choices. I will do at least one thing that is good, helpful, encouraging and of value for someone else because I want to share the PRESENT with someone else. And when I go to bed tonight, I will think about that and remember that thing I did for someone else. And I will ask the Creator for strength and desire to make the next TODAY a day of value – for me.
