Once created, the facets of daily living, which once were challenges or heartbreaks, will become nothing but reminders of how you used to struggle. Words enable this. Words determine what YOU feel about everything. You always have a choice about what words you pay attention to and what words you don’t.
Start right now by saying the most positive words to yourself. ‘My life is always perfect!’ ‘I allow nothing to remain with me that is not Perfection! Words bring miracles. Words bring Bliss.
Make them your own.
