Because I have struggled with self-esteem issues for a majority of my 42 (eek!) years, I totally get your struggle, and think your crafted resolution is a wonderful gift to yourself! 

I have a write up a friend gave me years ago.  It helped me to say it out loud every morning, as an affirmation to myself.  It does contain the word "God" and you can replace that with whatever you see fit, "Universe", "Good", etc., and it still works.

I am the mighty power and joyous love of God in expression.  I always have been.  I picture myself warm, loving, open, prosperous, joyful, confident, calm, healthy, successful, strong, and beautiful.

I am a blessing to all and am blessed by all souls I meet.  I am gentle, kind, and tender with myself regarding mistakes I have made.  I release any feelings of degradation or guilt about these happenings.

Nothing has power over me but God.  I am involved in God, my highest good, at one with my beautiful unique self, the only one of my kind.  I am in line with who I am and my purpose.

Thank you God, for me!


I hope I have given you something that will help you in your quest!  I am sending you thoughts of success in discovering your worth and esteem for yourself.

Hugs to you, you have infinite worth.

What a great idea! It is a beautiful book, I wish a was able to do things like that. I have a little box with letters, clippings etc. of encouragement, but this is so much better.

This is absolutely wonderful!!

I'm currently seeing a psychologist to help me with depression and low self esteem issues, and I told her about this one, and that I might do this too.. she said it was a very good idea Cheesy:D

You definitely helped me by giving me this inspiration, so thanks a bunch! <3

Hehe, you may very well set a new trend here ;-)

Thank you so much for the write up. It's perfect for my scrapbook

What a great idea! It is a beautiful book, I wish a was able to do things like that. I have a little box with letters, clippings etc. of encouragement, but this is so much better.
Why can't you?
The contents of your box would be a great start to your own Me scrapbook, pictures of projects you have complete would be great also!

I hope you do give it a try. I have only been working on it for a few weeks and I believe it is making a difference, Being able to take out my Me scrapbook and have a visual confirmation of my accomplishments and positive attributes does wonders for my ego.

I'm really glad I came across this post. Reading your first post was like reading my mind. I always try the New Year's diet and it fails and then I feel bad. I try do some new craft or something and I feel like I messed up, so I get down again. I get very stressed out about school and it makes me even more sad. I've tried journals and things, but when I don't write in them, I feel like I've failed again. Something like this would be so easy-and it wouldn't matter if it sits for awhile. I could add to it when a new inspiration strikes. Thank you for such a wonderful idea-and I'm glad you don't mind if people "steal" it. (:

By the way, your drawings are incredible!

This is wonderful and a really good start, I am working on similar issues and have decided that a crafty approach might help too, so I have started a body appreciation craftalong, to learn to work with the aspects of my body that I like, to start looking for the good stuff about me and not the bad.

I think its lovely to remind yourself of the fact that you are a wonderful person without having to change anything about the way you look. We almost all have these insecurities and this made me feel a bit better about myself so thank you.
