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 time I fall down, I pick myself back up. I come back stronger.

I learn from my experiences. I take responsibility for my choices and evaluate my actions. I identify habits I want to change and alternative solutions that I can try.

I build my resilience. I remember that setbacks are temporary. I focus on my purpose and renew my motivation. I speak to myself in a positive and encouraging way. I persevere even when I have doubts.

I reach out for assistance. I ask others for moral and practical support. I cultivate a strong network of friends, family, and colleagues who validate my struggles and care about my welfare.

I forgive others and myself. I let go of resentments and disappointments. I allow myself to move on.

I take satisfaction in my victories. Having to work harder and longer to achieve something makes the final result more gratifying.

I look for humor in difficult situations. I laugh at myself and keep things in perspective. Releasing stress and cheering up helps me to work more effectively.

I maintain my self-esteem. I value myself for who I am. I take pride in making an effort and living according to my values even if things sometimes turn out differently than I hoped.

Today, I regain my momentum. I have the wisdom and courage to try again.
