I love myself. I give myself a big hug and pat on the back. Way to go, Joey! Way to go! Why are you hugging yourself? my boss asks. I'm affirming myself, I say. I'm building myself up. I'm influencing my subconscious mind and activating its powers to achieve success in my life. Say it with me I tell her: I love myself and I am worthy of love. I respect myself. I hug myself as a sign of self-acceptance and acknowledgement of my worth. My boss stares at me as I hug myself. She's so impressed with me, I can tell. So impressed. I see that look all the time from people. All the time.
