I stand confidently on my own two feet.

Standing confidently on my own two feet means that I am the master of my own decisions. I am independent, confident of my abilities, and choose to follow a path that I define instead of being herded by the crowd. I am strong and intelligent, and I can make my own way in life.

I take loving, intentional care of myself.

I have faith that I can stand with certainty regardless of the storms that I might weather. Life has given me the experience I need to make wise choices.

I am thrilled to be independent in life. There is something quite intoxicating about knowing I can do whatever I want whenever I want. Being independent is an important part of standing on my own two feet.

Another aspect of standing on my own two feet is taking loving, intentional care of myself. I take comfort in knowing that whatever I need, I can obtain for myself.

Taking care of myself brings me great freedom and confidence.

I am rejuvenated when I think of my ability to stand on my own two feet. After all, knowing I can make my way through life without “needing” another person gives me feelings of confidence and even exhilaration.

The security of knowing that I can do anything enhances my feelings of self-confidence. Each time I make a choice for myself, my self-confidence grows.

Today, I am confident that I can live on my own and stand on my own two feet.

I let go of any personal insecurities that might prevent me from having the confidence I need to make it on my own.
