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 think wholesome thoughts.

My mind is my source of action. It drives the choices that I make each day. I think wholesome thoughts so that my actions are honorable.

I am strong-willed. When I think of myself in that light, my motivation to be a go-getter is strengthened. Giving up is the last resort for me because I believe in my ability to find the answer to any challenge.

Giving others the benefit of the doubt means choosing to think of them in a positive light. It is only fair to view others from a level playing field.

Although I sometimes have doubts about the intentions of others, I avoid jumping to conclusions. I take their words and actions at face value until I am able to prove an ulterior motive. I feel that this approach is reasonable and fair.

Whenever I am offended by someone, I avoid letting my anger push me toward negative thoughts or actions. That is destructive behavior.

My thoughts in such situations involve envisioning a moral breakthrough for them. Instead of consuming myself with negative energy, I rise above. I pray that others realize the harm in their actions and make a move towards remedying it.

Thinking wholesome thoughts involves positive self-talk. When I repeat words of upliftment to myself, I begin to believe them.

Today, my mind is a vessel for goodness and light. I use it to bring positive energy to the world around me. Thinking wholesome thoughts makes the difference in a time when there is negativity all around.
