I pledge Allegiance to myself

These words came out of me spontaneously. I felt like sharing this with all of you. I hope you have your own pledge to yourself. My 40's has shown me deeply that you always should have your own back. Be your best cheerleader. May you all have a blessed Friday.

I pledge Allegiance to myself
To always know what is true for me
To know the difference between compromise and selling myself out
To remember to be my own best friend
To recognize that what makes me unique is my strength
That I am only in competition with me from yesterday
Whether I am loved or hated, I need to be able to sleep at night with the choices I have made today
This is my life and no one else's
No matter what happens, I will always prevail...

Shell, you truly outdid yourself with this post!

I devoured every word, and as someone in his 40s, I could not agree with you more!

So. Being. Reposted!

I love this, Shell. I can apply this to myself, now in my 60's.
We all owe allegiance to ourselves.
Well said!
