Each team of women that goes through a cycle of Soup Of Success, participates in a session where they write their personal creed. Five of the women have allowed me to share their creeds here with you.
I believe that I have felt lost and alone, obligated to satisfy others needs and wants besides my own for 32 years;
Not because I am weak but because I put myself last.
I believe that I am now knowing and realizing that I am a person valuable and important person.
I believe that no matter what I’ve done and where I’ve been I deserve to be happy and enjoy this one life I have been given.
I believe that I am much more than I ever gave myself credit for.
I believe that I am smart, witty, charming and funny.
I believe that my voice is heard and people do listen. It is ok to speak up and disagree.
I believe that I am confident in myself and what I say whether people/family/friends like it or not. I am going to say how I feel with confidence whether they talk to me again or not.
I believe my opinions matter. My voice matters. My creativeness matters. It may not matter to everyone but I’m going to be me.
I will make mistakes but that is human!

I believe that sadness, anger, and hate have too much power today and my motto is happiness begets happiness and so shall be acted out.
I believe our children are our future and we all as a society have to be upstanding leaders and role models.
