Morning Affirmation~ “I allow myself to feel completely relaxed and at peace.”
Do you have trouble relaxing? Do you feel guilty relaxing on the weekend? This Friday morning, as we approach the weekend, say this affirmation and allow yourself to experience peace and relaxation.

Morning Affirmations: “I feel my negative thoughts slowly melting away.”
This is an important yet difficult affirmation. Most of us have negative thoughts from time to time. (All too often, if you’re like me). I am in no position to help anyone else with their negative thoughts, so I did some research. (This one is longer than my usual Morning Affirmations.) Before I share what…
Morning Affirmation~ “I venture into the realm of the unknown, with faith that everything will work out as it should.”
People who are seen courageous and bold are not fearless. They see the fear. They embrace the fear and act anyway. Starting a new thing is scary and sometimes that keeps us from acting. Feel the fear and do it anyway. You won’t know unless you try. He who is not everyday conquering some fear…
Morning Affirmation~ “Letting go of worry is becoming easy.”
This is a difficult one for me, as I am a worrier by nature. The men in my life, my better half and my sons, are just the opposite. They rarely worry, often saying “I can’t change it, or do anything about it, so why worry. What’s done is done.” They are right of course.…

Morning Affirmation~ “I believe in myself.”
Many prosperous people will tell you that self-sabotage is often the most difficult hurdle on the road to success. Many thru-hikers and mountain climbers will also tell you the same thing. Often, it isn’t the trail that is difficult, but negative self-talk, that is the biggest obstacle. “It is not the mountain we conquer, but…
Morning Affirmation~”I choose to be happy.”
Life is never easy, and choosing to be happy, when the world seems to be falling apart, feels impossible. Just look in the mirror and say “I choose to be happy.” This will help, even if you don’t believe it. Saying it whenever you feel down or frustrated will help. It’s a reminder that life…
I am at home among the trees.
I saw this post on Facebook tonight wanted had to share with you. This is definitely true for me. I always feel such peace and serenity in the forest. It feels like home, like I belong there. I guess that’s why I like hiking so much.

Daily Affirmation~ I believe everything is unfolding as it was meant to be.
I truly believe that there is a reason for every situation and every person you meet. If I didn’t believe that, I wouldn’t be sane today. There is a saying Every book you pick up has its own lesson or lessons, and quite often the bad books have more to teach than the good books.…
