“Today, I re-mind myself that it is never enough to simply sow your seeds. Like all things growth requires care and attention. I take care each day to nurture my constantly growing and changing garden.” – Pamela J. Leavey
In The Garden
Great White Egret
Today, I affirm that each day is an opportunity to redefine my life from who I am in the world, to how I live in the world. Nothing is ever written in stone. Change happens, moment to moment, hour to hour, day to day. One moment I might be on the edge and the next I might be soaring in the sky. As I strive to be in the moment each day, I keep myself open to redefine who I am and how I live.

Today, I re-mind myself of the importance of taking time for myself, especially in the midst of change and upheaval in my life. I affirm to myself that I am renewed and revived by the quiet moments I find in the midst of my day. I stop, if only for a moment, take a deep breath, close my eyes, envision a beautiful place, I exhale, open my eyes, and feel gratitude for the moment. For in that moment I am renewed. I affirm today and everyday that I will take time for myself, even if it is the briefest moment.
“There are times, when the weight of problems are so heavy in our lives that it is difficult to stay focused and positive. In those times, I re-mind myself how important it is to practice optimism throughout my day. Each time I find myself feeling weighted down with problems, I affirm to myself that there is no room for negative thought or negative actions in my life today, tomorrow, or any day, from this day forward. Instead, I look to the positive outcomes of all of the problems in my life, noting that positive thought brings about positive outcome.” – Pamela J. Leavey

“Today, I re-mind myself that being happy is a choice that I can consciously make. The first step to being happy, is to choose to be happy, everyday. Happiness is not a gift, although there are moments and events in life that bring happiness with them. I recognize that maintaining happiness daily is something that I must strive to achieve and work at on a conscious level. I affirm today that I choose to be happy.” – Pamela J. Leavey
