I encourage you to review the “Self-Reflection Questions” at the end, there maybe some unexpected blessings! Enjoy God’s wonders...
Being me is wonderful.
My life is filled with happiness, peace, and limitless opportunities. I accept myself as I am. I know that I am worthy of love, compassion, and respect. I am content with what I have. I value my spiritual faith and loved ones more than any material possessions. My self-esteem is based on my actions rather than on anything I own. I enjoy what I do. Cleaning the bath tub can be fun when I play my favorite songs and think about how I am creating a comfortable home for my family. I live in the present moment. I let go of regretting the past and worrying about the future. I immerse myself in what is occurring right now. I slow down and listen to my senses. I think positive. I notice the miracles that surround me. I marvel at the beauty of nature and the ingenuity of human beings. I stay calm when things fail to go my way. I recognize that setbacks and obstacles are inevitable. I believe that my struggles are temporary. I can turn things around. I learn from each experience. My persistence pays off. I dream big. Challenging goals excite me. I know that I can do amazing things when I am willing to put forth the effort. I give generously. I find gratification in serving others and sharing my riches. Today, I celebrate my blessings. My life is as beautiful, meaningful, and wonderful as I choose to make it.

Self-Reflection Questions:
1. How would I describe a wonderful life? We are often taken unawares by God’s power, love and wisdom.
Luke 1:11–12 NASB95
And an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing to the right of the altar of incense. Zacharias was troubled when he saw the angel, and fear gripped him.
Luke 1:28–29 NASB95
And coming in, he said to her, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” But she was very perplexed at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this was.
Acts 10:3–4 NASB95
About the ninth hour of the day he clearly saw in a vision an angel of God who had just come in and said to him, “Cornelius!” And fixing his gaze on him and being much alarmed, he said, “What is it, Lord?” And he said to him, “Your prayers and alms have ascended as a memorial before God.
2. How can life be wonderful and difficult at the same time? Wonderful for those are forgiven:
Psalm 32:1–2 NASB95
How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered! How blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
Romans 4:7–8 NASB95
Blessed are those whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, And whose sins have been covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will not take into account.”
Revelation 22:14 NASB95
Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.
3. Why does true happiness come from within? Jesus Christ’s recipe for happiness is as follows: ;
Matthew 5:3–10 NASB95
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Luke 6:20–22 NASB95
And turning His gaze toward His disciples, He began to say, “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.
