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 know that strong emotions impede logical thinking.

I know that strong emotions cloud my perception. Anger is a strong emotion that harms my judgment, so I resolve any angry feelings that I may experience.

Whenever I feel anger, I am immediately aware that I am intellectually compromised. My ability to see the situation accurately is severely limited when I am angry. Consequently, my ability to make sound decisions is also limited. When I make poor decisions, the quality of my life suffers.

I value the ability to view life accurately. To do that, I must be calm and peaceful. I avoid making important decisions when I feel strong emotions. When I am emotionally neutral, I am wise. My wisdom is one of my greatest strengths, and I choose to use it daily.

Viewing the world through the eyes of anger is a huge mistake. Anger limits the quality of my life. I decide each day to release my anger and see the world clearly.

Today, I am experiencing serenity. I allow my anger to fall as quickly as it rises. I allow myself the ability to see situations as they actually are. I let go of my anger so I can see more clearly.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. When have I allowed anger to cloud my judgment? What was the result? If I had made a wiser decision, what would the result have been?
2. How would my life change if I never made decisions while angry?
3. When am I most likely to become angry? What can I do to better contain my anger?
