Already some enlightenment.
After writing down those affirmations a couple dozen times, and saying them out loud a few dozen times, then repeating them to myself a couple hundred times over recent days, I am standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes yesterday morning thinking snarky things about something I imagine Fella is doing or about to do, when this pops into my mind: “I think and speak only words of love.”
Ha! Caught myself in the act of thinking everything but words of love!
Affirmations are handy if only to help you realize what your brain is actually doing, as opposed to what you think it is doing.
Had anyone asked me, I’d have said I don’t go around “burning to bitch.” But that’s sure as hell what I was doing yesterday morning.
