Today’s Affirmation – “I only think back to create a better future”

When you think about your past, are your memories happy? I remember a time when someone would ask me about my childhood and the only memories I could remember (or so I thought) were ones that caused me pain. When I finally noticed what I was doing, I decided to take some time to locate the happy ones.  And I found them.  I also looked at the ones that I'd share and realized those were Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I know what I love and love what I do”

Are you the architect of your dreams?  Do you believe that you have the power to create what you want in your life?  I invite you to contemplate what your life would be like if you believed you could.  Sit with that a moment.

Today’s Affirmation – “I am open and free and listen intently!”

How are your listening skills?  Do you only hear what you want to hear and when you don't, you shut down?  I've learned that when I hear myself say "You're not listening to me!", I know it's me who's not doing the listening. I invite you to join me in affirming "I am open and free and listen intently" and let's do exactly that.  Especially when we hear ourselves say that someone else isn't listening.  Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I share what I think and am open to other’s thoughts”

Are you afraid to speak up for fear of being wrong or fear of what someone thinks of you? I remember a time when I'd be in a meeting and have something to say, but couldn't because my heart was beating out of my chest.  I was so nervous. When I finally got up the courage to speak, there were many times people would thank me because I was saying what they were thinking. Today, I invite you Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I give myself permission to rest before my body tells me to”

Do you give yourself permission to rest or do you wait until your body shuts down before you do?  What our mind won’t let us do, our body has a way of ensuring we listen. Today, I invite you to take some time to contemplate how much rest you're getting.   Notice...has your body been breaking down and you've getting sick?   It's trying to tell you something.  Listen. Let's affirm  "I give Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I Choose to Love all of ME!”

Do you choose to love all of you? Do you take the time to recognize and appreciate the great things inside of you? What do you do with those things you wouldn’t consider your ‘best’.  I like to call those the ‘ugly bits’.  When I bring out my ugly bits there is usually an automatic rejection of them.  So much so, I feel the need to apologize to the people around me for showing them.  Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I Follow My Heart and Good Things Happen!”

Do you live in your head or your heart?  We're human, so we're used to thinking about everything.   And when we live there, it can become very complicated.  All that analyzing, contemplating, 'suppose to’s’ and 'should's are all about living in our head. Try an experiment for one day. As you go about your day, when you are faced with a decision, stop, close your eyes and visualize asking Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I close my eyes and find the light”

Stars can't shine without the darkness.  Hmmmm, OK yes, I agree and sometimes, I don't know about you, but I can get tired of the darkness and just want the light. If this is the case for you, take a moment to yourself today and sit quiet with your eyes closed.  Just allow yourself to sit.  Breath in slowly and deeply.  In and out.  Slowly and deeply.  Whatever thoughts come into your mind Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I am transforming and evolving in wonderful ways and this month, I practice patience and acceptance of where I am is where I’m suppose to be.”

How patient and accepting are you with yourself?  It’s funny, with all the ‘work’ I’ve done on myself, there are still so many areas I can find where I’m not so patient and accepting. And, continuing with yesterday's theme of health, we can be especially impatient when our body doesn't do what we want it to or it breaks down.  How is it that we can accept where we are, when where Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I define success and determine my results”

How do you define success? When you hear 'it can't be done', does it drive you to push harder, or you believe it and don't go any farther? Success is a funny thing.  It means different things to different people.  Sometimes though, when we don't ask ourselves what it really means to us, we default to what we have grown up to believe.  In some cases, a good job, good money, house, car, etc... And, Read more [...]
