I face the truth.
Confronting reality brings me peace. I devote my time and energy to taking action rather than trying to delay the inevitable.
I come to terms with victories and disappointments. Life is filled with ups and downs. I am strong enough to cope with stressful events. If I have persistent headaches, I call my doctor for a check-up. If I lose my job, I adjust my budget and search for a new position.
Facing the truth is the first step in acknowledging a situation so I can make positive changes.
I may give myself some time to absorb surprising news. Once I have a chance to adapt to the situation, I move forward.
I look at facts objectively. I commit myself to seeing the truth. I question my belief system. I look at what is happening instead of what I want to see.
I welcome feedback from others. I admit it when I slip up. I apologize for my missteps and correct my errors. I ask for help when I am struggling.
Regarding my finances, I see my strengths and limitations. I listen to my intuitions. I examine what lies behind my doubts or discomfort. I keep a journal to track what is triggering my emotional spending. I talk about my feelings in order to clarify them.
Today, I hold myself accountable for my choices. I deal with challenges as they arise.
