Freedom Affirmations and Original Quotes

Today’s Thought:

“Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

~Viktor E. Frankl

Freedom is such an important concept and has many connotations. In our modern world, we often think of freedom in terms of political freedom or religious freedom. There are still far too many examples in our world where these freedoms are deficient or non-existent.

Yet, there is an even more profound freedom. That is the freedom to think, to be free from mental and emotional conditioning, and the fully express the person you came here to be. These kinds of freedoms are the province of the mind, not the purview of the state or the church.

These affirmations and original quotes focus on all kinds of freedom.

Mothers’ Day Poem and Affirmations – The Affirmation Spot for Sunday May 15, 2012

Once a year we spend a day recognizing mothers for the invaluable contributions they make in all of our lives.

Here are some Mother’s Day affirmations and an original poem I wrote for Mothers’ Day a few years ago. Thank you to all the mothers out there for what you have done and continue to do for us.

“To Mom on Mothers’ Day”

Out among the stars
that flow across the sky;
there surely must be one
that caught my mother’s eye.

If I could I’d capture it
and lace it with a bow;
give it to my mother
so that she would know.

Despite our disagreements
and our differences of way;
I love her and respect her
on this, my Mother’s Day.

  1. “I am a great mom, I am a great mom, I am a great mom and I get better and better each and every day.”
  2. “Today I am the best mom I have ever been!”
  3. “I am a great mother! My kids are amazing people!”
  4. “I am a great mother! Today I celebrate my success as a parent!

  8. “As a mother, I am at the top of my game!”
  9. “As my children reach maturity, I easily transition from controller to wise guide.”
  10. “I give my children the gifts of life and opportunity!”
