I have been carrying around a 4 by 6 card that carries two affirmations. One affirmation stems from one of my father's old sayings: "Boy, you're always just a day late and a dollar short." Like many addicts and co-dependents, I have taken on the abuse given so freely to me and made it my own. That I'm always "a day late and a dollar short" comes into my thoughts frequently. That's self abuse. So my affirmations is: "I am always on time and I have plenty of money." This statement reverses my thinking and miraculously changes my behavior. The other affirmation is "All geniuses are dingbats." That's for when I lose my keys or go charging off on a mission that is bound to fail. So I try to choose my battles better and give everything I do my best shot. I forgive myself for making minor mistakes in the small things in life. I try to look at the big picture.
