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.

As I consider the feeling of being without options, I console myself by faith. I believe that there is hope even when things look bleak.

The answers that I seek present themselves at the right time.

Seeing people living in poverty is distressing because it seems like an unending reality. But I know that when hands join, there is a way to turn things around.

I take time to join charitable endeavors because the well-being and comfort of fellow humans is important to me. I believe that willing hearts filled with love are able to make a meaningful difference in challenging times.

Sometimes the voice of reason comes from others, and I play that part for my loved ones who reach out to me for assistance. I remind them that there are many possibilities for overcoming their present difficulties.

Being a beacon of hope is a role that I take very seriously. I use my own examples of perseverance as testimonies for my friends and family.

Once I believe there is a way, that is enough for me to keep going. Giving up is the last option in my mind.

Today, I believe that situations that seem impossible have the potential to be turned around into something good. I hold strong to my faith that dark days eventually turn into bright ones.
