By Anne Dickson from her book, A woman in your own right.
I discovered these in the 80’s in a book about standing up for your rights as a woman. They revolutionised my behaviour and approach to life, and I taught them to my children as well. Please don’t just read them and nod your head. Print them out and read them to yourself every day until you know them off by heart. Then they will take root, then they will inform and cue more empowered behaviour.
