To start off, I would like to express that I am typing on my notebook, in the dark, with my contact lenses out of my eyes and in their case for the night.Therefor, I won't be proof reading. Clearly, I did not expect to be typing a blog post at nearly 11pm (for some reason I was about to point out that it is 11pm PST, and not GMT or any other time. But, it doesn't make any difference if I point that out. It's a blog post about affirming well-being, not about world time zones.
What's important is for us both to recognize that what we are contemplating, in this moment, actually matters- We are shaping our futures, consciously or not, by the mental conversations we're having with ourselves. I know what I don't want: I don't want to end my day with worries. I don't want to close my eyes and think about all the things that I have to do before 8am tomorrow. I just want to revel, rejoice, and feel peaceful in this moment as it is right now. It's easy to write that, but I'm not feelin' it yet. So, that's part of the reason I think it's really important that I stop talking about it and just start affirming the joy I feel in this moment. Feel free to read along and come back to this post whenever you need to bump-up your love affair with your life.
Okay, here we go. I feel pretty damn good about this moment right now.

I feel blessed to know that I am cared for by a bigger part of myself.
I feel courageous, like a tiger.
I am becoming more and more like the person I have always wanted to be.
I am made of love.
Sometimes I don't like how I feel, but more often I do quite love how I feel.
I feel my eyes opening to greater possibilities for my life.
I feel joyful in my heart.
I am finding more than enough time to do all the things I want to do in my life.
I am empowered to make good decisions that help a lot of people.
I am becoming more and more confident in my strengths and abilities.
I am allowing myself to be imperfection.
I am finding peace and space naturally in my life.
I am full of joy and I share it with the people who matter most to me.

I excel at everything I do, and when I don't meet my expectations, I give myself a pat on the back for not being the perfection I have expected of myself my entire life. And then I try harder next time.
I am joyous.
I laugh whenever I have the opportunity.
I smile at people even when they don't smile back.
I keep smiling at them.
I smile at myself in the mirror and I tell myself how good-looking I am.
I let myself feel the crappy feelings, and then I get back up and smile.
I forgive my parents.
I forgive myself.
My world is just the way it should be.
I am working toward my dreams, and my dreams are within reach.
I am where I want to be right now.
I am confidently, courageously, expectantly walking toward the good in life.
I am conscious of my self-imposed limits.
I am free of the limitations others put on me and on themselves.
I am awake to life's offerings, and I am grateful.
That's today. I will post again because this felt good. I hope someone else gets something from it as well :)
