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 feel that there is value in every experience, and sometimes lessons come from a surprising place.

Even my children teach me important concepts.

When I watch my children move through life, I recognize the value of giving others the benefit of the doubt. When I approach someone without the mindset of judgment, I am able to lead a productive interaction.

My kids also teach me the art of forgiveness. Their examples show me that choosing to share something good with someone opens the door to saying sorry for my actions.

Kids have a zest for life regardless of how they are feeling. Watching them get excited to do the things they love shows me that the same is possible for me. Children teach me to overlook challenges and live a full and happy life.

One valuable lesson that I learn is that there is beauty in each thing that I create. Although I sometimes doubt myself, I stand confidently behind what I produce.

I now know that once I put my efforts into something, it has instant value even if another person struggles to see it. I feel good about my input instead of worrying about how someone else views it.

Today, my children are my light and my guide. I cherish their innocence and forthrightness. My examples for positive and full living come from their little lives and big expressions. I learn a great deal from watching them live authentically.
