Find a comfortable location where you can be fully supported, take a deep breath and soften. Here is today's reflection
My heart fills with joy.
I feel happy and fulfilled. I make each day more joyful.
I cultivate mindfulness. I let go of judgements and broaden my perspective. I focus on the present moment instead of dwelling in the past or trying to predict the future.
I practice gratitude. I reflect upon the things that I am thankful for. I tell others how much they mean to me.
I meditate and pray. I honor my spiritual nature. My faith gives me comfort and encouragement.
I take care of my body and mind. I eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and go to bed early. Staying strong and fit helps me to manage stress and engage in the activities that I love.
I spend time with family and friends. I nurture close and supportive relationships. My family and friends encourage me to laugh and play. We share precious memories. We celebrate our victories and work through our struggles together.
I connect with nature. I notice the leaves changing colors and the sun shining through a cloud. I take time each day to walk or sit outdoors where I can feel the beauty and power that surround me.
I give generously. I share my money, time, and skills. I volunteer in my community and commit random acts of kindness.
Today, I choose to enjoy my life. I count my blessings and express my appreciation.
