Today, I re-mind myself that my happiness is not contingent nor dependent on anyone but myself. I am comfortable in my being, at home with my self, at peace in the world around me, and I am blessed with a keen understanding of what works for me, in my life. As I go about this day and each day forward, I set my intent to the deepening of my own self-reliance. In this, I ensure that I alone am responsible for my inner peace and happiness. In this, I seek to find the strength in each moment, the joy in the most fleeting of gifts, the peace in my own heart and mind. These are blessings of independence that empower me. And so it is… Intent makes manifest.
