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.

There are times in my life when I marvel at the wonderful nature of humankind.

Seeing charity and selflessness around me reminds me that the world is still a beautiful place.

I encounter the spirit of thoughtfulness as I prepare to begin working at a new job. New co-workers are graceful in showing me around my new environment.

Adjusting to something new is more manageable when I have the support of those who are familiar with it. I take the time to acknowledge those people who are supportive instead of fixating on the ones who respond in the opposite manner.

Seeing selfless acts by people who own and operate charities is inspiring. I know the effort it takes to sacrifice for others. I applaud anyone who does it.

Working with organizations that provide aid is a rewarding experience. I learn the true value of giving when I actively participate in organized initiatives. Philanthropists teach me the meaning of selfless charity.

Charitable acts of others serve as a blueprint for my own acts of benevolence. When I see someone offering a helping hand to a stranger, I am reminded to be introspective. I use those moments to evaluate my own kindness.

Today, I learn from the positive examples of those around me. I take notice of these lessons of kindness and allow them to enrich my existence.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. In what ways do I show kindness to others?
2. How do I respond when I notice someone being unkind to another person?
3. How do I know when my intervention is required in situations of need?
