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.

Each ending is an opportunity.

Change can sometimes feel uncomfortable, but it is the only way to make progress. I remind myself that each ending is an opportunity.

I replace my doubts and fears with confidence and hope. I recognize my strengths and focus on what I have to gain.

I take a proactive approach. I figure out my options and make concrete plans. I push myself out of my comfort zone.

Setbacks are only temporary as long as I keep pursuing my dreams.

I reach out for support. I talk things through with trusted family members and friends. I use my network to find contacts who have had similar experiences. I learn from their insights and expertise.

If I am laid off at work, I look for a different job. I continue advancing in my career.

If I break up with my partner, I find other sources of love and companionship. I join a volleyball league or try online dating.

As my children reach each milestone, I celebrate the stages of our lives. I find gratification in helping them to become responsible adults.

When I complete a major goal, I set my sights on my next objective.

I embrace aging with ease and grace. Along with wrinkles and gray hair, I have developed more wisdom and patience.

Today, I prepare myself to make a fresh start. When I let go of the past, I make room in my life for new lessons and blessings. I replace each thing I lose with something greater.
