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.
I'm going to add this to the ones I use. Thank you mommamanjari.
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.
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."
these are great! i'm going to print them today.
