I am getting better and better.
At least, that’s what I’m telling myself! I could snivel instead, but since I don’t want to attract the results (thoughts ARE magnetic, you know, and more so when backed by emotion), I’ll stick with that old saw from Dr. Emile Coue–I believe I spelled that correctly–a pioneer in the affirmations movement. I remember finding his tiny, musty book on a shelf in the Northport Library years and years ago, and being fascinated with the cases of his patients. I have used affirmations successfully ever since, though the rewards varied with my level of consistency–and the degree of emotion. Doesn’t everything?
Early on in my writing career, when I felt overwhelmed at the prospect of writing a Whole Book, I would visualize the completed manuscript. I still do this when I feel stuck–and I have 80-something books to prove it works.
Here’s the thing about the flu, and everything else that gets us down. It’s temporary. In the words of my Master, “This too shall pass.”
Today, I’m choosing to be grateful. I’m choosing to trust.
Because, day by day, in every way, I’m getting better and better!
