A Month of Positive Affirmations

Hello Friends! Welcome back to the blog today.

Welcome, friends and fam; how are you on this Happy Friday?  I hope you’re doing well, taking in some good, staying hydrated, and getting plenty of rest.

I read A LOT of news because it’s a part of my job to provide weekly clips related to drinking water, climate, food, and farming, agriculture, and anything related to environmental issues.  However, not all news (as you know) is good news, and it’s hard to shield yourself when it’s the first email that you read.  I came across The Good Trade while I was researching how to live a sustainable lifestyle, and all these different positive articles (because I subscribed) started to populate my AM feed. I can’t think of a better way to start my morning than reading something that brings me joy.

So …as we glide through the weekend, I wanted to share 30 days of positive affirmations. I know I’m five (or six) days late, but damn hell, I’m adding those in too.   We all need to start our day on a positive note.  So, no matter the season or the reason, those simple words can give you a job and kick-start your day on a good note.
