“You are wonderful.”
Those have to be three of the most, well, wonderful words in the world.
I say them about 2,500 times a day to my parrot, Pearl, and my baby tortoise, Malti.
I often share that having pets is like having built-in reminders to say my daily affirmations.
This is because, even though I’m speaking the sweet words to other beings, in a way I’m saying them to myself at the same time.
I can tell this is true because I also feel more wonderful after telling someone else I think they are wonderful.
After a time, after so many affirmations spoken very authentically from my heart, I begin to believe they apply to me too.
I start to think more wonderful things about myself, and anticipate more wonderful opportunities in my life.
My lows don’t last so long, and I can see some wonderful aspects to enduring those times.
My highs last longer, which is because I have become stronger in holding the experience of “wonderfulness”.
I have discovered that simply by surrounding myself with wonder, I become a part of all that is wonderful in my life.
The same holds true for YOU!
