I have had a lot of success with a little mantra, a little saying that I recite at the beginning and end of each day. Some years I have been more diligent than others, but for 2017 I am getting back on track with doing this. Some people call it an autosuggestion and the idea is that our words are powerful and can effect our hearts and moods and alter our entire lives…for the better. I thought I would share the one I wrote for this year and encourage writing one of your own 🙂
I laugh first and see the bright side of situations and circumstances. I love my family and I put them first. I am flawlessly obedient to the commandments in spite of whatever difficulties they present. I am happy wherever I am. I accept the Lord’s will in my life in small and big ways and I faithfully endure, holding tightly to the promise that all things will work together for my good. I take the time to cry to the Lord and I hear His responses. I recognize that I am useful to the Lord each day and I act immediately on promptings from Him. I feel His love for me and for others. I love others as He does and I forgive wholeheartedly. I am a good wife, a good mom, a good friend, a good daughter and I have good life.
I hope that you take this suggestion to have an autosuggestion so that you can truly make 2017 a very happy new year!
