Our lives are filled with new beginnings. We see this newness in every morning, week, month and year we are fortunate enough to experience. Because we have been blessed with free will and choice, what we do with these new beginnings is entirely up to us. Proven to change our thoughts and thus, our reality for the better, affirmations are an excellent tool to embrace.
As some days were filled with abundant happiness and others with great sorrow during this past month, I am reminded of the great ebb and flow of life. Because I experienced a huge roller coaster of emotions, accepting ‘what was’ in any given moment proved to be a very hard concept for me to adopt. Because this is a new day of a new week of a new month, I decided to begin it with affirmations. After repeating them with conviction, I am filled with the hope of new beginnings.
With light and love as my North Star, I am not turning my back and moving on from what was. Rather, I take the lessons I learned and choose to allow each new moment to move through me with grace and compassion. If one moment poses a challenge, I know I have a choice in how I respond to it. I can either allow myself to be identified with the story or I can stop and ask it, “what it is this for?” Doing the latter, challenges will turn into gifts of opportunities. Continuing to repeat these affirmations for the next 30 days, I look forward to the new beginnings they present in my life.
P.S. Thank you to my Aura tribe for all of your heartfelt condolences and support you’ve given me during this difficult time in my life. And, Julie, thank you for introducing me to this amazing meditation! Wishing you all a beautiful month filled with new beginnings!
