This is a poem-like affirmation pieced together from writings of four different authors. Only a handful of words came from my mind. I just brought the authors onto one page.

Today

Today, I let nothing anger me,
Nothing disappoint me,
Nothing disturb me,
Nothing frighten me,
Nothing defeat me.

Today, I won't waste my energy
On things that generate worry,
Anxiety,
Anguish.

Today, I will brave the battle of life,
With confidence,
With courage,
With strength,
Unchained.

Today, I will lift up my spirit,
Worshipping the Creator,
Adoring all Creation,
Admiring my Neighbor.

Today, I will wish the best for everyone:
Peace,
Harmony,
Happiness,
Health.

Today, I want for nothing.

Nice, reads almost like a prayer, which is sort of what an affirmation is, or can be. I liked it, very positive, and we all need some of that sometimes.

Yep, the original authors did all the heavy lifting. Only thing I did was retrieve scissors (snip, snip), get glue, and connect parts. Presto--it came out pretty good. Thanks for comment.

It serves well with harp music as a soothing meditation CD--relaxing, healthy, and wholesome. Positive messages repeatedly fed into the consciousness produce astounding results.
