Each day, we provide a series of daily affirmations and reflections designed to help you get that ShineBuzz feeling. We suggest that you read through the affirmations (aloud if possible, in your head if not) and meditate on them for a few moments. You can also choose one or two that speak to you and carry them with you throughout the day. When you’re finished, take a few moments to answer the reflection questions at the bottom in your journal or add them into your meditation, whichever works best for you. Here are today’s affirmations and reflections.

It is important to me to maintain a connection with my present circumstances.

When I focus on acceptance, I have less time to worry about things that are beyond my control.

I use my creativity to make good use of what is in front of me. It makes me smile when I am able to create positive opportunities for myself in the present.

Being happy allows me to have a clear mind. Clarity opens up possibility and sharpens my vision. The future feels more certain when I avoid clouding it with unhappiness.

Although my current job offers little inspiration, I remain grateful for the opportunity. As I put things in place for an inspiring career, I also focus on giving my all to anything I do today. I perform my professional responsibilities with a smile.

I set small goals and celebrate when I achieve them. They remind me that, although the bigger prize is further away, I still have something to be grateful for.

I focus on people and situations that bring me a sense of joy. I believe that I am a product of what I surround myself with. My life today is enough when I choose to live it with happiness and a sense of contentment.

Today, I commit to setting goals that support my desire to be happy. My serenity matters more to me than lofty accomplishments. I am intent on smiling with each step that I take.
