20 Morning Affirmations
Here are some morning affirmations to start the day off with clarity, purpose and joy.
“Each morning we are born again. Do today what matters most,” writes Jack Kornfield, in The Buddha’s Little Instruction Book.
We get a remarkable gift each day: A fresh start. That chance to do what matters most. Now, not all of us are morning people, it’s true. Some of us pop out of bed at 6 a.m., raring to go, while others stagger out from under the covers, zombie-like, toward the coffee maker and a hot shower. It’s okay—you can’t help being a night owl or a lark, as those factors are largely determined by genetics. But once you’re awake... are you really awake? Are you receiving the gift the universe has handed you? Or are you wandering into the day in a fog of to-dos? Don’t waste such a precious gift. Here are some morning affirmations to start the day off with clarity, purpose and joy.
