Make this your New Year's Resolution.....


Quiet Confidence
by Tammie Renea Rizer-Averyt

Quiet confidence means...

Rather than scold myself for my imperfections,
I accept them and realize my ability to change
them. Accepting my own imperfections allows
me to accept those of others as well.

Quiet confidence means...

Rather than mentally and emotionally "sleeping"
through each day, I choose to be fully awake...
to be aware of my own thoughts, feelings,
attitudes, and the effects they have on myself
and others.

Quiet confidence means...

I am becoming aware of and choosing to nurture
my own talents and gifts, both to fulfill my own life
and to give something of myself to the world.

Quiet confidence means...

I am willing to acknowledge the deep down pain
and fear that keep me "stuck". It means that I am
willing to take the humble "baby steps" required
to move myself forward.

Quiet confidence means...

Rather than beating myself up, I will forgive
myself when I fall back into my "old" ways of
negative thinking and behaving. Doing this
also allows me to be more compassionate
and understanding of others.

Quiet confidence means...

I think for myself. I ask my own questions
and seek my own answers from sources
which *I* consider reliable. As I learn, I use
my new knowledge in positive ways.

Quiet confidence means...

I am not a "people pleaser." I do not carry the
fear of rejection and abandonment that would
keep me from being myself. This also helps
me allow others to be themselves.

Quiet confidence means...

I make judgments through compassionate eyes.
I am not blind to injustice. I am patient enough to
allow the truth to come into focus, and I am
willing to take action whenever necessary.

Quiet confidence means...

Rather than avoiding judgment and criticism by
living within the safety of a tight cocoon, I accept
my responsibilities and my gift of freedom by
emerging and spreading my wings to fly.

Quiet confidence means...

I take full responsibility for my mistakes as well
as for my accomplishments. When I make a
mistake, I respectfully make amends whenever
possible. When I accomplish a goal, I humbly
share my success and tuck it inside my heart.

Quiet confidence means...

I know I can only change myself and set goals
for myself. I cannot change others to meet my
needs or wants. I learn to meet my own needs
and to fulfill my own wants, therefore avoiding
false expectations and resentment.

Quiet confidence means...

I do not accept abuse of any sort; nor do I abuse
myself or others. A harsh tongue only hurts, never
heals. Physical punishment only reaps fear and
anger.

Quiet confidence means...

I appreciate the gifts of body and mind. My
spirit is the life of me, which dwells within my
flesh. I care for my mental and physical health
without comparing myself to others or setting
unrealistic standards.
