Ponder: What affirmation do I need to hear today? In what ways can I validate my own gifts?
Pray: God in whose image I am made, sometimes I don't feel very happy with myself. Sometimes I see something scary in the mirror or internalize unwanted criticism. Help me to stop the negative self-talk. Provide me a new way of loving my mind, body and soul. And remind me to share positive affirmations with my family, friends and strangers, too. Amen.
