Bad luck continues. Resilience is low.
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.
It’s three months until the big day. I’m broke and my hopes for a job before November took a nose dive this week.
I had hoped to visit a Christmas market in France/Belgium/Germany/Holland this year. That is out of the question now. However, London Southbank is looking promising!
And, do you know what? I’m looking forward to it.
Yesterday I went to a charity shop, where I bought this postcard in a frame. I loved it the moment I saw it.
Well, it had to happen sooner or later. My first sick day in my work experience placement. Day five. I feel shame and pain. I also know I mismanaged myself this week and I feel annoyed that I didn’t stop for self-care.
Today is a write-off. But I know that I’m not.
