I Am Me
Let 2019 Be The Year YOU Make Your Declaration of Self-Esteem
In my profession of family therapy, I found a powerful mentor early on, that reminded me of the importance of having positive self-esteem. What I loved so much about Virginia Satir, was that she was a pioneer for her time. She was a strong, confident woman who reconstructed family therapy. She was a mover and shaker. She followed her heart and created a life of passion and fulfillment. She was fearless and unstoppable. She inspired my work throughout all these years where I could see my clients from the perspective that they weren’t broken. She helped me realize that recreating psychology was an option. She reminded me to see people for the perfection they each bring within.
I invite you to make the Declaration of Self-Esteem to yourself and share it with those people you love. It’s your choice to live a life of self-love and actualization. The most powerful statement of all is to remember that YOU ARE OKAY!!!!
