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 few things in life that intimidate me because I believe in myself.

I am ready for what the future holds because I know I have what it takes to handle it in stride.

I put a smile on my face the minute I awake each morning. That action sets the tone for the type of day I intend to have. When I approach the unknown with that healthy mindset, it is easier to find solutions to challenges.

Although I sometimes experience anxiety, it is rarely long-lasting. Having presence of mind gets me back to a place of calm acceptance of what is and what is coming.

Sometimes I enjoy going into a new stage of life without a full plan. It is easy to get derailed when a plan goes unfulfilled. I prefer to let many things progress naturally.

I am careful to express gratitude for where I am today. That approach prepares me to be open to whatever is ahead of me.

Readiness for the future also comes from having a sense of courage. Bravery makes things seem less intimidating than they are. It comes by accepting the outcome of each situation I encounter.

Today, my excitement comes from knowing that I am equipped to handle whatever comes my way. I am ready for the unknown and prepared to use those experiences to grow and strengthen my entire being.
