This last year put me into a tail spin. I’ve had more change in that one year than ever before. Stop already!
I feel like I’m flapping parallel to the ground, holding on to a flimsy flag poll. I need to catch my breath.
What ever happened to moderation? You know, things in small, manageable pieces? I need another vacation!
Now is when I have to remind myself that “this too will pass.” My new mantra.
Now is when I need to be faithful with my affirmation, my positive reinforcing statements of gratefulness. My frame of mind seems to change for the better when I do my affirmations.
For example: “Thank you God for my health, thank you for my discipline, and thank you God for my courage, conviction and determination.”
Or: “Thank you God for my health, thank you for my discipline, and thank you God for my determination, success and happiness.”
The idea of affirmations is that the first statement is being thankful for something you have already accomplished. The second statement is being thankful for something you are currently working on. The third statement is being thankful for 3 things you want to accomplish.
Again, this needs some soul searching. Be honest with your choices. No one has to know. But the power of affirmations is documented, and well worth the exercise. The act of reinforcing your goals is a constant reminder of what you want to accomplish. It seeds the goals into your subconscious, where they are worked on behind the scenes. The more you open yourself up to accomplishment, the sooner it will happen.
Recite your affirmations in the morning before you get out of bed, sometime midday when you can focus on them, and at night before you go to sleep. These statements need to be the first thing on your mind in the morning, and the last thing on your mind at night.
Think of it, focus on it, and make it happen!
