I just stepped into my apartment after leaving a group of women who get together once a month to support and share with one another. This is my second month with this group and when I leave that space I feel spiritually rejuvenated. One of things that we do is to set intentions for the upcoming month. My intention is to say daily affirmations to myself. I need that to create the foundation of truly feeling worthy of all the good things coming my way. So, tonight I affirm…life. I affirm life in all its goodness, in all its splendor, in the people I meet and within myself. I affirm life by appreciating it in the dogs that pass me by with their owners and crying child that clings to their parent. I affirm life. I affirm life.
