There is a big difference between giving up and letting go. Giving up means selling yourself short. It means allowing fear and struggle to limit your opportunities and keep you stuck. Letting go means freeing yourself from something that is no longer serving you. Giving up reduces your life. Letting go expands it. Giving up is imprisoning. Letting go is liberation. Giving up is self-defeat. Letting go is self-care. —  Daniell Koepke

Today I will treat myself with kindness

and let go of all harsh self-judgments.

Today I will hold myself accountable in all I do.

Today I will live with integrity.

Today I will reflect on what it is that I truly value.

Today I will make every effort to make my

actions match my values and beliefs.

Today I will remind myself that living

with integrity brings peace of mind.

Today I will not betray myself or others.

Today I will not dwell on mistakes that I have

made in the past, but I will acknowledge

the lessons that I have learned.

Today I will open my eyes to the good

things that surround me.

Today I will pause long enough to appreciate today.
