I Choose Me, Finally
I made my choice. I finally choose me.
I embrace all the beautiful, chaotic mess that is me.
I choose to be my fabulous self.
I love and accept myself just the way I am.
No one can take away the love I have for myself.
I choose to be glorious!
It is FREE to join.
This is an awesome opportunity to take a stand
for the power of self-love and become a part of something big.
Won't you Become a Love Ambassador Now and join TEAM LOVE!
As a member of the Self-Love
Revolution, I promise to promote self-love
by being a Love Ambassador and
spreading love to others.
"Love Ambassadors are women, girls or men who practice filling themselves up with love in many forms – self-care, self-compassion, self-worth, self-expression, etc – and help share the message and daring practices of self-love with their communities, tribes, families and more."
"You believe in the power of love and you want to be part of sharing the message of love in all of its forms to the world – especially self-love – in a way that inspires people into action. You are in for – in your own unique way – reclaiming the definition of self-love and making loving ourselves a tangible, every day reality for every woman, man and child."--Christine Arylo

To be Glorious
(a self-love poem)
Today, I choose myself
I choose to be the Queen of my own domain.
To name myself as the one who governs my life.
I shall not wait for the approval of others.
I will act on my own behalf and inner knowing.
I choose to listen to this great heart within me.
To honor what it wants, needs and longs for.
I shall no longer allow the sacred parts of myself
to feel worthless, fragmented and isolated.
I choose to take up space in this Universe.
To inhabit this vessel of self, which is my holy temple.
I shall not keep my gifts hidden any longer
or allow fear to keep me from my greatness.
I choose to be as wonderful as I truly am.
To explore just who I might be, after all these years.
I shall not judge myself for where I have not
journeyed yet, or the ways I have been untrue.
I choose to forgive myself and release the old stories
to make space for new stories, legends even, to emerge.
I shall not forsake my dreamings and visionings or allow
others ideas to crowd my own. I will think my own thoughts.
I choose to fall in love with who I am, as I am, right now.
To embrace the messy and the marvelous within me.
I shall not diminish my light, one day longer. Hear me now.
I release the shadows. Open hands. Open heart. Whoosh.
I choose to see myself, and to be seen by you, too.
To find you and dance with you and let you know I see you.
I choose to see myself as whole, holy, worthy and wildly me.
And Oh! So much more than enough. I choose to be outrageous!
Being glorious is not a default. It is a choice. Hear me now.
Are you ready for this? I am. Today, I choose myself.
I choose to be glorious!
