Before it Happens

“I AM going to have a great day.”

This affirmation was inspired by someone I coached moments before this writing.

She was sharing her family history and life challenges with me when she revealed that a few years back she entered a recovery program where the doctor who led her group provided them with daily affirmations. She said it was that experience that helped her to understand the importance of speaking positively to herself.

Not wanting her children to go down a similar path, she now guides them according to her learning. She told me a brief story about an interaction between herself and her son. She said,

I have to show them a different way…I tell my son all the time, don’t let other people get to you and make you have a bad day. You have to tell yourself that you are going to have a great day, and that’s what I say to myself everyday. I am going to have a great day.

As she spoke, I got chills. My day wasn’t so hot and she inspired me by helping me to remember myself. Because of her, I am sharing with you.

Despite what you are going through or how you are feeling, proclaim the success of your day before it happens by saying, I AM going to have a great day!
