Morning Affirmation: Positivity To Get You Pumped and Get The Day Going
Everything I want is waiting for me.
So I’m gonna take Action, like right now.
This is going to be an outstanding day, and I am going to make all the right decisions that count.
Even the small ones.
I will NOT let entropy win.
I will not let kudzu grow over my dreams or let my aspirations rust like old VW’s in the junkyard.
I will NOT let others control the way I live.
I am in the driver’s seat of this cherry red Benz that I call my life.
So Backseat drive all you want, haters, but I know where I’m going.
And stay off my patent leather seats,
those are worth more than any word you’ve ever said to me.
I am COMPLETELY IN CONTROL OF my life. Not you. Me.
And I have a good heart that is capable of showing love if i let it.
I ought to do that more.
Trusting the right people and having abundant love is like looking God straight in the eye.
And I am able to adapt to change when change reveals itself.
I challenge myself to accept change with open arms, like it is a new friend.
Even if this friend smells bad at first and has a crap taste in music
....and accepts FOX news as fact.
I will find a new way to accept this friend that is stuck by my side.
Maybe even help him to improve and in turn, I will learn something from him.
Desiderata: listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant;
For they too have their story.
I am intuitive and challenge myself to follow my instincts no matter what.
Sometimes I need to give my heart the megaphone,
and let my mind go to voicemail.
It’s my choice to become better with each and every passing day.
Nobody can tell me to do it but myself.
I will decide to say yes to important things.
And I will say no to unimportant things.
Simple as that.
I am strong & determined.
I am not gonna spend my hours in a stagnant swamp filled with crocodiles and flies and dead bodies...I’m gonna paddle forward, even if it’s just a little bit. Even if the mud is too difficult to get through. Even if the flies buzz and bite. Even if the dead bodies bob to the surface and demons try to climb into the canoe. Even if the crocs gnaw and nash.
We’ll make it out the mud, Every single one of us.
And we will end up at a sea filled with golden shells and new memories.
But only if we decide that’s what we want.
And only if we’ve earned our calluses from the rowing.
And if things don’t go as planned,
We’re gonna keep it moving, be classy and graceful.
Because we are all children of the universe,
No less than the golden leaves of October or the stars that our ancestors have prayed to for eons for the meaning of life.
Desiderata: With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
