We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves;
otherwise, we harden.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Last week we talked about our mid-year checkin. I hope you looked into at least a few of the things you are juggling in your life. It is good to reassess and shake up our thinking and being periodically.
Today, I will share an affirmation on renewal. Near the end of this post, you will also find some prompts for writing or journaling.
I take time for renewal.
I pause during my daily life to take time for renewal.
Closing my eyes, I feel the waters of rejuvenation wash over me like a dip in a cool, clear spring.
Breathing in deeply, I inhale the bountiful air. Oxygen infuses every cell in my body.
I feel the spray of water dance across my skin. I am standing underneath a healing waterfall. Water gently cascades all around me.
I feel the cool waters bathe my brain, wash through my ears, and cleanse my tired eyes.
My mind is calm, clean, and brimming with new possibilities.
My ears hear the joy in the voices of others.
My eyes see with a fresh, new perspective.
The soothing waters wash over my neck, shoulders, and back, relaxing and loosening any stiff muscles.
I feel the invigorating water rush over me from head to toe, filling and energizing my entire being.
Any tension I feel flows out of my body in gentle waves and leaves through my hands and my feet.
Breathing in deeply, I feel the healing effects of the waterfall. I am energized.
It is a new, fresh moment and the possibilities for my growth are endless.
I am rejuvenated, refreshed, and renewed.
Today, I pause and take time for renewal.
I give my mind, body, and spirit the precious gift of time to renew and recharge.
I send thoughts of love to all parts of my body.
I am renewed and grateful.
Thoughts for journaling:
1. When do I most feel in need of renewal?
2. How can I make the time to take the time to renew myself?
3. How might it benefit others if I take the time to practice a self-renewal affirmation?
