ALian affirmings

Dear, ALian. πŸ’œ

I know you’ve read it a number of times, but I thought to remind you of the bliss I get every time I write to you.

I just love you, I love that we have this getaway spot, I love that you come back here weekly. Thank you.

So this morning when I was creating an affirmation for you (the last one is so dear to my heart, it has been my wallpaper for 3 weeks and I’m not changing it anytime soon), guess what I wrote? Lol.

I’ll tell you. I wrote ‘Today, I’m tired. Still, I rise.’

That was to be our affirmation, because, omo! The tiredness I felt this morning was soul-deep. I kept praying “Jesus, help me.” Three hours of soaking music and intermittent tonguing later, I felt stronger.

So, I created another affirmation, the one I’m sharing with you now. I know it will serve you.

Whilst I could decide to share the other affirmation of how tired I felt, I decided not to… Because, feelings are not me. That I can decide what to believe about my life and guide/frame it with my words is super power I do not (want to) trivialise.

I choose to speak words of life, even when death threatens.

Today? I choose joy as with every other day.

Have a swell week. You deserve to, dear ALian. πŸ’œ

Emem ye nsonidem. (Peace and health).

– Your GJ.

    Your way with words are super descriptive, I so much admire and covet; “The tiredness I felt this morning was soul deep”- there was just no better way to put it, kai!

    Thank you dearest πŸ’œπŸ’œβœŒοΈ
