Moving gently into the new

In 2009 my mom was gifted with a Louise Hay desk calendar - at the beginning of each month there was a monthly affirmation and then, every day, there was an affirmation related to the monthly theme. It was simple and beautiful and - although we did not remember to change the date every day - whenever we checked it, it helped set the tone for the day. A thought to be kept in the back of one's mind, a saying that brought things to the surface, or a reflection of one's own feelings on some matter.

At the end of 2009 we were a bit gloomy as it meant that the calendar would no longer apply... but we recycled it - ignored the dates that were off by a day and went through the calendar again for 2010. In 2011, I found the app for the calendar and since then I've downloaded it at the end of each year. I'd email the affirmations to my mom whenever I checked it (sometimes daily, sometimes not) and we'd sometimes talk about it.  

Today's affirmation is:

I'm always amazed by how well the daily affirmation can reflect my own thoughts and feelings.

peace,
Ren
