“All is Well”

A recent art journal tribute to a fave affirmation

During my lifetime, I have talked myself into believing many things.  Doing so has not always been in my best interest.  A perfect example?  When my perspective has been somewhat skewed.  In the past few years, however, I've begun tapping into a much more positive aspect of self talk--those lovely, nurturing statements known as "affirmations."

Ever have those times something seems to be tugging at you? Feel that something just isn’t quite right? Yet, you haven’t a notion as to what it is?  I do.

Generally, a good journal writing session works wonders, for me, in resolving these unsettled feelings.  Unfortunately, I don’t always have instant access to my dear Sweet (such a pity!).  It’s in those times that I’ll think to myself “All is well. All is well. All is well…”  Remarkably, before I know it, I do attain a greater sense of well being. 

Ninety-nine percent of the time, turns out I am right after all.  All is, indeed, quite well. 

Every now and again, I’ll learn that (oops) I forgot to do or pack something I’ll need for that day.  But, you know what?  In the grand scheme of things, is that truly the end of the world?  Not by a landslide.  So, even in those instances, guess all was well (for the most part) after all.

"All is well" is a real “go to” affirmation for me.  How about you?  Do you affirm?  Would love to hear your reflections on this!  T.
