I have always struggled with affirmations. It is like saying something that isn’t true, to make it true.. well that is what i thought. Recently i have been listening to some and i realize that in many ways it is how we change our thinking. For instance... This is going to be a crappy day... it is raining and so far nothing is going right. Changing that to It is going to be a wonderful day and i can’t wait to see what it holds, and how i can serve others. Self talk is what it is all about. Studies show our brain can’t determine if what we think is real or not. So it takes what we think and responds accordingly. I want to land on the side of being positive. Believing the best. Even believing that what ever is coming my way is all part of my what’s next. So for today i am choosing to find affirming things to tell myself. By the way...This is no easy task. It is much more difficult than just accepting the negative. It takes work, thought and intention.
