WRITER'S WORKSHOP PROMPT:
“I need all the help I can get and if repeating something healthy and inspiring to myself several times a day helps, then I’m going to do it!” -What affirmation makes you feel better? WELL THINK OF ONE.
I love daily affirmations. Love them. The power of positive thinking is where it's at baby. I even have this lovely affirmation board (made from magazine clippings) hanging up in my room. Love it.
It has all kinds of handy tidbits posted on it to get my mind going in the right direction. I've thought about doing a separate blog post for each item I have on my board, explaining why I picked it and how it helps me, and I think I will do that someday, but for today's post I'll focus on one of my favorites. It says "You'll need 15 minutes".
I love this little affirmation because I tend to allow myself to feel a bit overwhelmed from time to time. My daily "to-do" list can knock the life right out of me if I let it. But for some reason this simple phrase helps me to put things into perspective, take a deep breath, and get a goin' on my tasks at hand. Because most jobs really do only take an average of 15 minutes after all, and I can handle 15 minutes by golly.
And my handy dandy timer, that hooks to my belt loop, turns the whole process into a fun little game that I love because I'm a dork like that. So fun.
Yes, I loves me an affirmation.
How 'bout you?
Got any good ones?
