Step 1

Describe the best day you've ever had or dream of having.

Step 2

What were you feeling that made you so happy? What need was being met or exceeded beyond your wildest dreams?

Step 3

How much do you agree that the feeling met on that special day was the one that you're afraid will not be met on a continual basis - or may never be met?

Step 4

Is it possible that you're holding yourself back from the feelings of happiness, stability and love based upon your past experience?

Step 5

Can you gather the courage to let go of the fear of your past and focus on new possibilities that your present and future have to offer?

Step 6

Are you willing to try one thing today to take you in this new direction from fear and toward the love, sense of stability and happiness that you desire?

Step 7

Here's how to begin: Do your best to spend an hour a day alone to connect to yourself.

In this time, picture your strengths. Listen to music if it helps.

Get a firm image of your life at school, work or home. In this image you allow your best qualities to be on display without holding back.

What kind of people are there with you? How does "real you" act around them?

Where do you go and what do you do? What do you talk about? How much do you laugh?

How do your insides feel when you imagine all these things?

Write down these images in the space provided and capture the feeling of the real, energized you.

Step 8

Wear 'real you' today and get a feel for it, much like clothes you really liked but thought you'd lost.

Just try 'real you' on for size. Take it around the block.

Practice being...yourself...with the qualities you like best on display.

Will you try it?

Step 9

To get you in the mood, go to the 'video' icon and watch the happiest scenes from the movie, 'Frozen'.

Tell us if it put a smile on your face before you head out to have your best day ever.
