Affirmation for Today - October 25, 2023

I am always in control of how I feel.

Life is a whirlwind of experiences, and it can often feel like we're on a rollercoaster of emotions, being jostled by external events and situations. But here's a game-changing thought: "I am always in control of how I feel." It's more than just a mantra; it's a declaration of personal power and responsibility. While we might not have control over every event that happens to us, we certainly have control over our reactions and feelings towards them.

Imagine a world where every setback is just a setup for a comeback. When we take control of our feelings, we're not saying bad days won't happen. Instead, we're saying that even on the toughest days, we can find a silver lining, a lesson, or even just a moment of calm amidst the storm. It's about owning our emotional responses and remembering that our mind is like a garden – what we water and nurture will grow. By nurturing positive thoughts and consciously deciding how we want to feel, we're sowing the seeds for an inner landscape that's resilient, optimistic, and forward-looking.

Now, this isn't about suppressing genuine emotions or painting on a fake smile. It's about recognizing that our emotions are a choice. Feeling overwhelmed? Take a deep breath and find one thing you're grateful for. Frustrated by a setback? Reframe it as a learning opportunity. The more we practice this, the more intuitive and natural it becomes. After all, in the grand story of our lives, why wouldn't we want to be the heroes of our own narrative, choosing empowerment over victimhood? So, the next time the winds of life try to sway you, plant your feet firmly, take control, and remember: you've got this. Because you are always in control of how you feel. And that's a powerful place to be.
