I am enough, I can do it, I have (or can find) what it takes. Where there is a will, there is a way and deep within me lies the will to life, to fulfillment, yes, even to greatness if I so choose. I am a Child of the Universe, I have a right to be here; I have the right to self-determination. I can and will create of my life a masterpiece of my choosing. My self-esteem is not determined by others’ opinions; my sense of self is anchored deep within, from that flows wonderful peace.
