I seriously needed to read that. It’s an affirmation. Affirmations are reminders to ourselves that what we can accomplish our goals, that we can invite what we want into our lives. Do you want to be healthy? Avoid drama? Make new friends? Affirmations remind you to take steps daily toward these, or toward whatever it is you want.
I have been feeling, lately, that I’ve lost sight of some of the goals I had set for myself. I’ve been feeling – well, off. Part of that is because I’m falling into my own trap of self-doubt, pity, and of a huge fear of failure. Guess what? The more I feel like a pitiful failure, the more I affirm this.
So, here are a few of my goals: To be a more dedicated writer, a dedicated yogi, a happy person, a loyal friend – among other things. All this week, I’ve been up at 5:15 and on the yoga mat by 5:30, the first time in a long while. I’m up at 11 on a Saturday, making a blog post – when I could be asleep or sitting at a club, listening to jazz. But I’m happy. And tomorrow I will continue: Will get up, hit the mat, write a story, go to a photo shoot, and write yet another story.
What are your goals, and what are you doing today to reach them?
