Many years ago, I was hit with a horrible bout of depression. During some of the sessions with my therapist, he talked about affirmations. I keep some on my desk at work, I have several pages of them bookmarked on my laptop, and my husband will occasionally write one on the bathroom mirror. Reading them, seeing them, is very helpful to me.
Well, last week was an absolute disaster at work, and some of that negativity carried over to my home life. I’m still working on recovering. In trying to get my head right for the upcoming week, I pulled together some of the quotes and affirmations I have stockpiled. I’ve used them in my quiet time today; reading through them again and really HEARING the words.
Life is hard. Work, home, relationships aren’t always made up of sunshine and rainbows. So, I’d like to share some of these affirmations and quotes with you. If and when something goes wrong in your world, you might come here and find a quote that is uplifting to you .
