NOTE: As a way to introduce affirmations to refresh your soul, we will begin with a once-a-week affirmation that you can use all week.

I welcome and radiate acceptance.

I accept all of my parts just as they are and have been. I accept my body size for what it is now. Every part of my story—success, failure, disappointment, hurt, trauma, wound, love, laughter, achievement—is a beautiful aspect of me.

I don’t have to understand why. I sit in acceptance and radiate acceptance like the sun shining warmly upon my face.

I choose to accept the broken and weak parts of my soul just as much as I accept the confident and strong parts. They all make me who I am today. I wouldn’t be me without them.

I welcome and radiate acceptance and allow it to flow out of me, creating a life for myself that is accepting and understanding.

There is no guarantee of life beyond this moment, day, week, month, or year. I choose to accept the small moment of now and allow it to rest in my soul.

I know I am better for this.
I know I am more compassionate when I am accepting.
I am more loving…
