If you are facing challenges in your life that you feel you have no control over, you likely feel down when you think about them. Use your ability to shift your focus at will, and turn it onto the power of “I am.” Instead of saying, “I am stressed. I am sad. I am angry,” begin affirming (The word “affirmation” means to make “firm in one’s mind”) – “I am doing the best I can. I am seeing more support come forth. I am finding new ways to cope. I am in charge of how I look at this situation. I am blessed in other ways.” What is a positive “I am” that you can affirm today?
