Grace Note for September 17, 2015

Hello, I'm David Russell and this is a GRACE NOTE.

Some psychologists and self-help authors suggest that persons begin each day with a daily affirmation. A time when you tell yourself something positive about yourself. But, unfortunately, if we are honest with ourselves, we may fall prey to some Ineffective Daily Affirmations

- All of me is beautiful and valuable, even the ugly, stupid, and disgusting parts.

- Blessed are the flexible, for they can tie themselves into knots.

- I will strive to live each day as if it were my 40th birthday.

- Only a lack of imagination saves me from immobilizing myself with imaginary fears.

- Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there are no sweeter words than “I told you so.”

- False hope is nicer than no hope at all.

- Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day watching TV. Instead I will move my TV into the bedroom.

- Who can I blame for my own problems? Give me just a minute…I'll find someone.

- Why should I waste my time reliving the past when I can spend it worrying about the future?

- I am willing to make the mistakes if someone else is willing to learn from them.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink,[j] or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:25-26
