Affirmations

2

This post is part of EdublogsClub. This week’s prompt is quotes.

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.

Welcome to my PAD

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.
