On April 12, I decided to embark on another 30 Day journey. As I reached a personal and physical milestone of losing 100lbs, I felt that I still had baggage that was preventing me from truly being excited about the current journey I am on. I know that there is power in the words that we think and speak so I decided to embark on another 30 day journey–one that focused on my emotional, mental, and spiritual health. I decided that for the next 30 days, I would decide on and post an affirmation as well as a personal reflection.
The journey began on April 13. Here is the index to the affirmations I chose and reflected on each day.

I remind myself that I am blessed with the miracle of a healthy, mobile body, and I rejoice in that fact.

Day 23: I give, easily.
It is easy for me to be generous. Generosity is my true nature. Every time I give, I set in motion the law of cause and effect. Every time I give, I give with undivided attention and unconditional love. Through my giving I participate in the flow of universal abundance.

Day 30: I am the author of my life.
“I am the author of my life. No person, place, or thing has any power over me, for I am the only thinker in my mind. As I child, I accepted authority figures as gods. Now I am learning to take back my power and become my own authority figure. I accept myself as a powerful, responsible being. As I meditate every morning, I get in touch with my inner wisdom. The school of life is deeply fulfilling as I come to know that we are all students and all teachers. We each have come to learn something and to teach something. As I listen to my thoughts, I gently guide my mind toward trusting my own Inner Wisdom. I grow and blossom and entrust all my affairs on Earth to God. All is well. I go beyond barriers to possibilities.” Louise Hay
