My rep at U.S. Games Systems recently sent me a care package of goodies to look over, and one assumes to write about. She included a box of Daily Affirmations, “just for fun.”
What arrived is a fun and attractive oval box labeled “Daily Affirmations”. Inside there are 365 oval cards with quotes gathered from poets, philosophers, statesmen, celebrities and spiritual leaders, as well as common wisdom. Every morning since the box’s arrival I’ve had my husband and I draw a card to read. By now, my husband cringes as he hears the distinctive sound of me shaking the box so we can randomly select cards. (Helpful tip, 5:30 A.M. is maybe not the best time to receive an affirmation.)
With the holiday season in mind, these seem like they’re designed for all-purpose gift giving. And if affirmations aren’t your thing, U.S. Games has “Daily Quips” (which includes proverbs from around the world, and classic quotes from Lucille Ball, George Burns, George Carlin, Mark Twain, Lily Tomlin, and many others) and “Daily Strategies” (which provide 365 cards to inspire leadership and motivate successful thinking). See what I mean, really something for everyone.
In closing I want to say “Making the best of ourselves is the reason we were born, but it requires patience and perseverance,” which is attributed to Sarah Ban Breathnach, and more importantly, is my affirmation for today.
