I am sharing this journal entry because this is the process I use to create my affirmations. I listen for hints about what I need to re-frame in my mind to make my life richer, easier, less anxious. Then, i write about it in my daily journal. After I’ve examined my response, I look for the words, the sentences that resonate with me or perhaps the ones that don’t resonate but that would change something that isn’t working for me. I write and write until the sentence comes alive. Then, I transfer it to a few pieces of paper and I place them in places where I can’t miss them, e.g. the bathroom mirror, the car dashboard.
It’s only been one day and I’m feeling calmer but I know this is not something that can be resolved overnight. But, hopefully I will respond with grace and ease while anticipating my next trip or the one after that.
