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 is power in numbers because support from others provides courage.
But there is greater strength when I choose to be independent and realize my own power.
Although I value the support of my friends and family, I recognize that leaning too much on them results in dependency. I like being able to fend for myself.
I know that I am strong and valuable.
Relying on my own mind to make decisions causes me to think outside the box. I am creative when I choose to think for myself. I keep an open mind to new ideas that can benefit my endeavors.
At work I come up with my own creative ideas before group brainstorming sessions. Although working with a team produces a wider range of ideas, I like to be ready with my own first. This approach keeps my mind active and results-oriented.
Having the comfort of a stable job with little pressure leads to complacency. Although I like predictability, I prefer to push my boundaries and experience the unknown.
A new norm develops in my life each time I conquer a new experience.
Today, being strong means learning how to stand on my own two feet. It is a good feeling to have supportive cushions to fall back on, but I prefer to challenge myself first. Knowing what I am capable of is a victory in itself.
1. How do I know when it is time to ask my support system for guidance?
2. How do I strengthen my resolve?
3. What are some ventures that I am interested in taking on alone?
