Affirmation for Thursday January 20, 2022

Greetings, my friends! I have a heartfelt question for you. Why can’t we have an advanced civilization that holds as its core ethic the well-being, self-determination, and personal development of every single human being on the planet?

Is it that we lack the resources? No. Is it that we lack the intelligence? No. Is it because the best majority of people on this planet aren’t works good hard enough? No.

Is it that we lack the will and the moral courage to make it so? Well, there you have it.

This affirmation states firmly and boldly that I stand with that outcome; not just for me and those close to me but for everyone.

Are you with me?

Put your mind on your side and watch the magic happen!

Morning Affirmation for Wednesday January 19, 2022

Good morning, my friends. It may not seem like it some days, but it’s true. It’s a gift an honor to be you. You’re not just unique in your family or your circle. You’re unique in all this universe. Pretty darn cool, when you think about it!

All the universe asks in return is that you be you to the best of your ability.

This affirmation reminds you to accept the areas where work remains and accentuate the areas where you excel. It reminds you that opportunities are in front of you, but you must choose to seize them.

More than anything today, I’m here to remind you, in case no one else does, you’re awesome!

Keep putting your mind on your side!

Affirmations for Sunday January 9, 2022

Good Sunday, my friends. We began a three-week stay on Kauai yesterday. I’ll be sharing photos from the trip here as we experience them. We’ve been blessed and this is our 12th trip to this beautiful island.

Let’s get to some affirmations. My goals in 2022 center around a rejuvenation to my core path which definitely includes the personal and spiritual development content I post on this blog.

We live in a time more in need of better mindsets that ever, but also with little tolerance for triviality. You’re going to see that reflected in the affirmations I post here. I want to strike a deeper, more no-nonsense tones with the affirmations.

Hope you enjoy and, as always, your feedback is a gift.

This affirmation reminds you of who you really are and that you have the internal resources to deal with life’s biggest challenges.
This affirmation is my favorite measure of a life well-done and my commitment to embody it.
Anger can be a short-term fuel in certain situations. Held onto for long periods of time it’s toxic to us, our lives, and everything we hope to accomplish.
This affirmation is similar to the previous one. It reminds us to be conscious of the things that frustrate us and avoid prolonged engagement with them. It’s far more productive to focus on what you want rather than spending g your energy battling what you don’t.
We don’t have to keep repeating the same mistakes over and over. We’re not prisoners of circumstance. We can make better, wiser choices, using experience as our guide. This affirmation encourages that and asks you to own it.

Give 2022 A Chance

New years are not unlike us. They come into being with a lot of baggage from the years that preceded them. It would be easy to assume 2022 will just be more of the same – more anger, more injustice, more frustration and fear.

There are a lot of people on this planet committed to the narrative that things are bad and only getting worse. They have convinced themselves change is heresy against their spiritual beliefs, their political convictions, and their way of being in this world.

Remember change in this universe is constant and natural. All the digging in our heels we can muster won’t change that. The game is not to prevent change. Rather, it’s to push change directions that feed humanity’s highest aspirations and benefit more people on this planet each and every year.

2020 and 2021 have been years of hardship and heartache for many. It would be easy to assume 2022 will simply bring more of the same. Of course that very assumption sets in motion a self-fulfilling prophecy.

What if, instead of assuming 2022 will continue 10,000 years negative energy and will perpetuate the angst of the past two years, we give it a chance. I don’t mean a chance just until it provides its first example that dystopia is at the gates. I mean a real chance, a real try.

What if we assumed this is going to be the best year we’ve had in a long time and we worked, every one of us every day, to make it so?

What then, indeed!

Wherever you are on your journey today, know that you are awesome!

Morning Affirmation for Sunday October 31, 2021

Good Sunday, my friends. Don’t you think fear has won often enough in your life? Don’t you think anger has won enough in the world?

What if, just for today, we did absolutely everything in our power to see that love wins for a change? What if that ripple we started spreads out and infects the world? What if it creates an absolute tsunami of love that circles and embraces the planet?

What if one act of love or kindness from you was the very thing someone needed to restore their faith in humanity or try one more time to scale their personal mountain of struggle?

What if you are the spark the world is waiting on to shift from fear-based paradigms to love-based paradigms?

Let’s let love win today and see what happens!

Wherever you are on your journey, remember you are awesome!
