Well, the new school year is upon us here in Mitchell, SD. The kids took off this morning, somewhat excited to see friends and get back to school but a little trepidatious as well, especially my Freshman beginning her first year of high school. I took some time this morning to reflect on how I was feeling about the new year and all it brings, both personally and in terms of my writing.
I pulled open my box of Power Thought Cards by Louise L. Hay. I won them some time back and have thoroughly enjoyed reading and pondering their true meanings. I found two this morning that spoke to me and seemed to be a fitting start to a new school year (which will, hopefully, afford me more writing time than the summer months). I thought I'd share with all of you in case you are facing a similar reflective state today.
"It's only a thought, and a thought can be changed. I am not limited by any past thinking. I choose my thoughts with care. I constantly have new insights and new ways of looking at my world. I am willing to change and grow."
"Divine wisdom guides me. I am guided throughout this day in making the right choices. Divine intelligence continuously guides me in the realization of my goals."
I believe these may become a mantra of sorts as I begin each new day. I am not sure if these cards are still being printed, but they are certainly filled with many nuggests of inspiration if you can find them.
