Affirming Your Personal Best

Shoot for the moon! Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. Hold a good thought and become what you aspire to be.

Just for today,

I will expect the best of everything;

I will not revisit yesterday nor contemplate tomorrow;

I will celebrate this day and rejoice in all that is good in my life;

I will walk with my head up, calmly, confidently and soak up all that surrounds me;

I will acknowledge and be grateful for my importance in the world and be my personal best because it celebrates God’s love and plan for me.

I’ve adapted this affirmation from “Just for Today.” (Narcotics Anonymous Works Web site, NA World Services, Inc.)

Many people and organizations use affirmations to uplift and instill self-belief. I do too. I often copy inspirational messages on an index card, slip it into my handbag, and read from time to time through the day. Personally, I’ve found “talking the talk” has helped me “walk the walk.”

Please share affirmations and other microcosms of self-esteem. You might have the words that another reader needs.
