I don’t believe in daily affirmations, but I do believe in leaving myself notes. Often, I leave them in my phone, as part of my alarm clock thingie, so that when I wake up, I see something nice to balance out the horror of eventually having to leave my bed and do something useful.
Yesterday morning, I left myself this note:
“Wake up and don’t go to any meetings at all. Have coffee and enjoy yourself.”
Today, I’m leaving myself the following, to balance out getting up an hour earlier to exercise:
“Wake up and go walking, just like a lady of leisure would, if that lady of leisure were concerned about physical fitness.”
Affirmations suck, but I really think my system of alarm clock messages is the wave of the future.
