Getting back to affirmations

So my back is much better. I’m still being very careful, but I’ve been able to work full days and that’s a good thing.

Yesterday marked my 12th day without sweets. I’m proud of that and to be honest, when I get tempted, I remember I don’t want to break my streak. That helps me through the temptation.

Today will be challenging. As an administrative assistant, one of my duties is to coordinate group luncheons. One such luncheon is today. I’m having Uncle Julio’s fajitas brought in for 40 people. Plus dessert. But - I’ve enlisted people to help clean up (using my back as justification and that is a valid reason to ask for help) so hopefully I won’t be terribly tempted. I’ll have leftover desserts sent down to the 6th floor, which is where most of the people in the luncheon work anyway.

So, I feel strong and I’ll remember that.

I discovered an old ‘friend’ when I bought my 2nd 4-Day Win reward - Louis Hay. There is an app that is nothing but her deck of power thought cards. I have a tough time saying affirmations to myself and these cards help me with that.

Today’s card:

I am safe in the Universe and all life loves and supports me. I breathe in the fullness and richness of life. I observe with joy as life abundantly supports me and supplies me with more good than I can imagine.

It’s a bit hokey - but starting the day thinking about such a positive idea helps me stay in a healthy place. And that’s my goal - to be in a healthy place physically, mentally and emotionally. So, I’ll deal with a bit of hokey to help me get along the journey.
