Daily Affirmations

I know there are a lot of cliches out there – jokes even, regarding people who use daily affirmations. I find them to be fun, heart-warming, encouraging and sometimes reverent. It does not mean I change my life or plans based on one affirmation I read… but I do keep it top of mind for a few hours in the beginning of my day just to see if setting the tone for my day in that way feels like it will have impact on my consciousness.

Sometimes we all just need a little encouragement or reminder to wake up and be self-aware and purposeful in our feelings and our presence in the world. Here are a few I love. I keep them in a little mini bonsai pot on my kitchen windowsill and try to remember to grab one and read it in the morning as I brew my coffee. What are your favorite affirmations or sayings? Please share!
