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.

I have many positive qualities and traits.

I also have a few negative characteristics, but I accept myself as I am. Everyone has positive and negative characteristics. I am comfortable with who I am.

I am becoming more accepting of myself as I age and mature. I have learned a lot about myself over the years. I accept the good and the not-so-good easily and comfortably. I know that perfection is unattainable, and I am okay with being imperfect.

Life is challenging and dynamic. As I strive to strengthen my skills and abilities, I do the best I can with what I have.

My imperfections make me unique and interesting. I embrace my imperfections and invite the world to experience them.

I avoid trying to live up to society’s image of the ideal person. I can be a perfect me, and that is enough. To try to do anything else is an exercise in futility.

I am honest with myself regarding my personality, physical characteristics, and view of the world. A high level of self-acceptance allows me to experience the joy of life. Life can only be fully experienced from a perspective of self-acceptance.

Today, I accept myself, just as I am. I am also willing to accept others as they are. I am practicing acceptance on every level. Self-acceptance is a key part of enjoying life.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What part of myself do I have a hard time accepting? Why?
2. How would my life change if I were able to accept this part of me?
3. How can I be more accepting of others?
