40 Affirmations to Enhance Self-Care

Today was a good day
And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that
It’s all beyond my control
My attitude
The reality
I’m sure you can agree that
It’s not true that good exists
Only if one’s surroundings are good
True happiness can be obtained
It’s all on the mind and heart
And it’s not true that
Satisfaction and happiness don’t last
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Even if
This world is a pretty evil place
Because, when you take a closer look,
There’s something good in every day
And don’t try to convince me that
Today was the absolute worst day ever
