My Daily OM horoscope yesterday suggested a very simple strategy that I’ve already employed a couple of times since I read it. Just repeat to yourself periodically (or come up with something similar that ‘speaks’ to you):

“Things are wonderful.”    or    “My life is joyous.”


Say these things to yourself a couple of times today, or whenever you think of it. Where do your thoughts go? For me, it’s all positive.

  1. Great tip! It’s a little new age-y, but I like to say “I am.” It reminds me that I’m here, and really that’s a blessing in and of itself! Right now is all that we have. 🙂

    I hear you, Fit Bottomed Girl. But sometimes I think we need to think beyond ourselves to, to appreciate more all we have. It’s hard to keep that in mind, and a little reminder like Daily OM suggested really helps me.
