Recently, I read about affirmations in an online forum. I hadn’t heard of them before so I looked them up. They sound like the mantras I use in mindfulness meditation. I also found dozens of affirmations that help me feel ready for the day.
Each morning, I listen to ten minutes of asoftmurmur.com and stretch my body. I focus on my breathing and try to keep my intrusive thoughts at bay. Here are some of my latest affirmations:
I am the architect of my life; I build its foundation and choose its contents.
Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.
My body is healthy; my mind is brilliant; my soul is tranquil.
I am superior to negative thoughts and low actions.
I have been given endless talents which I begin to utilize today.
I forgive those who have harmed me in my past and peacefully detach from them.
A river of compassion washes away my anger and replaces it with love.
