Sometimes we “look okay” and “feel pretty good.” Two days later we look “lousy” or “feel crummy.” Five days later, life turns out to be pretty “good.” We even surprise ourselves when, fleetingly we truly view ourselves as absolutely stellar.
We love, we hate, and sometimes, with our dearest ones, we do both at once. Socially, we make friends, lose them, sometimes leave them behind. Our lives–work, family, or health ebb and flow–sometimes chaotic and wrapping us in anxiety or smothering us in depression. A surprise visit, unexpected “good luck,” or a good workout seem to help us soar. Peaks and valleys.
Life is unpredictable; we behave badly, or oddly, or erratically–even from out own perspective. We do things out of obligation. We put our own soothing or pleasure last. We don’t meet our own expectations. How could we ever live up to those?
What a great moment THIS is–in the midst of THIS day, to welcome our-SELVES, our ability to change, and make GREAT things happen. Do the affirmations below work for you?
