That is my affirmation for today: “I am so thankful for all of the positive influences in my life!” While I haven’t always made the best of choices for me, these positive influences have directed me to choose for my betterment.

I know that I am worth more, and deserve the best in my life. Today, I will allow this affirmation to penetrate into my heart and mind – helping me to choose the best for me, every day.
