Affirmative Prayer: In the Eye of the Storm

Knowing My Solid Foundation

After I wrote about embracing change last week, it didn’t take me long to realize that I needed to consciously be aware that my life has a solid, unchanging foundation.  That makes embracing change a whole lot easier!

I cannot control everything that happens.  Heck, some days I have a sense of how very little I control!  What I CAN control involves what I bring to any situation, any interaction.  I choose attentiveness, clarity, generosity, strength and love.  In the moments that I fall short of bringing any of those qualities to the table, I then choose compassion, detachment and forgiveness!

I have been using this affirmative prayer to remind me of and connect me to my solid foundation.  It helps me stay on or get back on course.  Perhaps it can support you as well . . .

 

In the Eye of the Storm

With so much chaos in our world,
I have found it more important than ever
to deliberately choose my way of being.  

I don’t know what will happen later today or tomorrow,
but I do know that I choose to bring my
attentiveness, clarity, generosity, strength and love
to whatever it is.
I do know that I choose to connect
more frequently and deeply
with those I love.

Reaction is no longer something I choose to indulge.  

Instead I choose to be present with whatever is,
allowing it to move around and through me,
without attachment or resistance.

And, once again I choose to bring my
attentiveness, clarity, generosity, strength and love
to whatever it is.
