Tips & Ideas
submitted by: Bill Arsenault
My wife had surgery and was somewhat unhappy with her recovery progress. I wrote the following affirmation for her to read aloud to herself at least once each day to help her as she got better. I believe that it did help her and the fact that I had taken the time to write it also helped her. An affirmation is a powerful tool that anyone can use to help at times of need or stress.
It is the start of another new and wonderful day. This day is full of new possibilities and will bring me new accomplishments. I am capable of ALL that I need to do today and I can’t wait to see what that will be. I am a very important person, a fact that many people realize. I have confidence in my tremendous abilities and others are amazed at my skills and at the progress I am making. I am an awesome and Olympic level wife and I am totally loved, respected, and adored by my husband. He continues to be amazed at my power and strength for dealing with whatever challenges life presents me.
Whenever I get discouraged by a particular day or by the progress that I am making on that particular day, I will remember where I was on and before my surgery. I will consider and rejoice in where I am now, and I will consciously realize that I am currently a world better than I was before now. I will also recognize that in one, two, or ten weeks, I will be even better than I am now. I will continue to do everything that I can to keep up my amazing pace of progress. I will religiously perform my exercises and do all that I can to continue my fitness growth. I am confident and optimistic about my continuing efforts to improve. I will reach a level of total healing! My surgery was totally successful and my recovery will also be totally successful!
I admit that I have some pain, and that I will for a short while. However, I am continuing to get better every day and the pain is continuing to lessen every day. I will continue to rejoice in my progress and improvement. I am a fantastic, terrific person and the strongest person my husband knows. I agree with him! I will persevere!
Today is going to be great! And…
Tomorrow will be even better!
