Today’s Affirmation – “I think…I inquire…I decide…”

The Byron Katie quote I’d like to introduce you to today is:  “If you put your hand into a fire, does anyone have to tell you to move it?  Do you have to decide?  No: When your hand starts to burn, it moves.  You don’t have to direct it; the hand moves itself. In the same way, once you understand, through inquiry,  that an untrue thought causes suffering,  you move away from it.” This Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “Success is mine for the taking”

What does success look like to you? I think it's different for everyone. Success may be a feeling, the size of a bank account, the depth of  relationships.  If you haven't, start exploring what success is for you. A fun way to explore this topic is by looking around you.  Notice the people in your life who you really admire.  What is it about them and their success that lights you up?  Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I create a vision of what I want and what I want wants me”

Do you know what you want?  A couple days ago I suggested an exercise of creating a list of what makes you happy (and unhappy).  Today's affirmation is intended to build on that and have us focus on 'what we want' or what makes us happy, rather than what we don't want. "I create a vision of what I want and what I want wants me".  What I want wants me.  What?  Yes, what you want wants you.  Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I love who I am just the way I am”

Do you love yourself just the way you are?  Would you ask yourself for your hand in marriage?  You’re what you’ve got for the rest of your life … in sickness and health … till death do us part.  Why not love ourselves fully and completely?  And the answer....because sometimes we just don’t. For whatever reason we think we need to be perfect.  OK, maybe not perfect, but close to it.  Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I dream and hold them in my heart where they grow”

Do you allow yourself to dream?  Or do you tell yourself you're too old, have too much to do, or believe your dreams won't come true? So let's start small and begin with what makes us happy.   Sometimes we don't know what that is, so it helps when we also think about what makes us unhappy.  Grab a piece of paper and make two columns.  Label one column "Things that make me happy" and the other Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “Each day I take action toward what I want”

How are you with taking action?  Are you a ‘take the bull by the horns’ kind of person, or are you more of a ‘let’s wait and see what happens’ type? What I’ve come to realize is that the action I take doesn't have to be big.  It's the small, short steps that keep me moving forward.  Letting go of what actions I thought I was suppose to take has allowed me to embrace the actions that Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “My Imperfections Make Me Perfect”

April’s theme is all about relationships and the most important relationship is the one with self. Loving ourselves unconditionally is a huge step in the right direction. And sometimes that can be hard to do.  It's so easy to find our imperfections. We’re too heavy or too thin, too tall or too short, not smart enough, fast enough, strong enough.  It’s can be easy to get into that way of Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I notice my thoughts and change the ones that don’t work for me”

Do you notice your thoughts?  Do you feel like you are able to control what you think and have the power to change the thoughts that cause you pain? Sometimes it's difficult.  We have so many thoughts and don't even realize we're focusing on something that is hurting us. The first step is noticing. How?  For me, I've gotten in the habit of when I'm not feeling good, I ask myself what I'm thinking.  Read more [...]
