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.

Each morning, I recommit to living with a higher purpose.

My open arms give love to others who deserve it and gain success in return.

I open my arms to others by serving as a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on. Letting others know that I am here for them teaches me to live life selflessly.

Still, I maintain my boundaries and I don’t engage with toxic people who drain my energy.

When I take in the heartache and difficulty being faced by someone else, it eases their pain. It is my brotherly responsibility to ensure that those around me are comforted. Their well-being is just as important as my own, and I vow to take care of it.

I also open my arms to those who feel unloved. Each chance I get, I tell others how important they are. I encourage them by showing them their value.

When I choose to live for others more than myself, success comes my way. My choice to sacrifice my own comfort for that of someone else is rewarding. Gratitude is poured into my life and I am positively overwhelmed.

Although the future is sometimes unclear, I avoid feeling doubtful. When I keep my mind and heart open to possibility, I often receive it.

Today, my arms are a vessel for receiving and giving goodness. I love what they symbolize in my life and the lives of others. Love and blessings abound when I choose to share myself with others.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. In what ways do I share myself with those around me?
2. When is it enough to just listen to someone express themselves?
3. How eager am I to dive into the unknown?
