Every morning, I like to start the day by creating a context for the day. Some people think of these as affirmations, but that’s not quite what I mean. I mean that I decide what my perspective is for the day. What’s my paradigm? How am I going to perceive my world, my circumstances, my environment? What reality do I choose today? My context gives meaning to the world. It actually creates my experience.
A few days ago my friend, Moriah Diamond, asked for my favorite affirmation on facebook. And she took all the affirmations that her friends shared with her and created this lovely video clip. I just had to share it with you!
You’ll see mine about half way through. As you can see, it’s more than just an affirmation. It’s a way of interacting with the world. “Everything that happens to me – means – I am wildly successful.” How often do you interpret your world that way? How do you think you’d feel if you could look at your cat’s hairball on the carpet and say to yourself, “Well, this is just more proof of how successful I am!” and really mean it.
That’s my context – what’s yours?
