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.

Life is filled with ups and downs that are sometimes overwhelming.

Focusing my energy on things that I have some control over keeps me sane and brings me mental clarity.

When I seek opportunities that end up eluding me, I avoid feeling disappointed. I remind myself that doing my best is good enough. I choose to focus on the positive experiences I gain along the way.

I am able to control my reaction to difficult experiences. When I respond in a positive fashion, I usually get the best results, regardless of the situation.

I have control over my own actions, so I spend energy on being the best I can be. I have a lot of confidence in myself. I am proud to show my strengths to others despite how they feel about me.

Another personÕs impression of me is their concern and has little impact on my impression of myself.

I am guided by principles that enrich my life and take pride in the person I am today. It feels good to like myself through and through.

Today, I avoid putting a burden upon my heart with things outside of my control. I choose to live a life free of anxiety and worry. Life is positive and rich when I channel my attention to the things that I can make an impact on.
