Oh friends... let me tell ya, I have been in the SWIRL. I have let other people and instances dictate my feelings and I have felt completely and totally drained over the past couple days because of it.
And it is in these moments, when I finally remember that I am actually the one in charge of my feelings, that I recite this affirmation over and over. "I choose peace instead of this".
It is simple and profound all rolled into one and I'm so grateful for the realignment it provides me with every time.
Give it a try today!
