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.

Today is a fresh start.

Today is an opportunity to make a fresh start. I break free from the past and expand my possibilities. I have everything I need to make a new beginning.

I update my goals. I evaluate my priorities and figure out what I want to accomplish next. I pick targets that are challenging and feasible for me. I create specific action plans and write them down.

I make new friends and contacts. I introduce myself to my neighbors and chat with strangers at my local grocery store. I attend networking events and join a committee at work.

I overhaul my diet and exercise routine. Taking care of my health gives me more strength and energy to take on rewarding projects.

I acquire new knowledge and skills. I sign up for training courses at work and attend lectures about science and arts. I try out a new sport or hobby. I read books and watch educational videos.

I clear away clutter. I get rid of possessions and attitudes that are holding me back.

I travel to unfamiliar places. I plan an exotic vacation or take a new route to work.

I build my courage. I rely on my faith, family, and close friends for support as I take on new challenges and adventures.

Today, I head off on a new path. Starting over gives me a chance to learn and grow. I discover greater happiness and fulfillment.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How can I manage my fears and doubts about making a new beginning?
2. What is one area in my life where I want to start making changes?
3. What is one thing I would do differently if I could start my life over?
