i'm wondering if anyone would like to tell what affirmations they use in the morning. i've started playing hypnosis recordings while sleeping and was thinking about adding some affirmations for when i first get up. just wondered what others found helpful. i have a tendency to write really long affirmations that then feel like a job in themselves just to read.

Two of my favorites are:

"Today is a beautiful day. There will never be another day exactly like it."

"I welcome both the familiar and new joyful experiences that I will have today."

Are you looking for prayers?  I'm Episcopalian and I really enjoy reading Compline before I go to bed.  I find that the language helps me to find a peaceful place at the end of a busy day.  You can find it in the online Book of Common Prayer under The Daily Office:  http://www.bcponline.org/

 

For shorter morning affirmations, there is also a section called "Prayers and Thanksgivings" that has brief collects for a variety of occasions.

thanks, those are good starts.

 

rather than prayers (i'm pagan), i'm looking for something that i can work on daily to help make me a better person. something that dd could do along with me is a big plus; i'm hoping that starting her early on things like affirmations, quiet time (later to hopefully become meditation) may give her a head-start on own personal development.

Some that both my DD and I like:

 

"I love myself."

"I am creative."

"I am kind to myself."

Oh...and I can't believe I forgot these:

 

"I can do it."
"I believe in myself."

"My positive thoughts help me create positive actions."
