All loss is gain. Since I have become so near-sighted I see no dust or squalor, and therefore conceive of myself as living in splendor.

~Alice James (1848-1892)
American diarist

At the end, it means more than religion to have had a happy childhood.
Memory of it serves to hold off pain and fear; it is an unfailing resource.

~Helen Hooven Santmyer
20th century American writer

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly,

acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all
I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand
thing.

~Agatha Christie(1890-1976)
English writer

This is one of my favorite positive affirmations statements:

Every religion on the planet has told us to have FAITH. Faith is when you cannot see how, but you absolutely know that the moment you have the dream it is given to you, and all you have to do is relax and allow the Universe to magnetize you to your dream and your dream to you.

~Rhonda Byrne
Creator of “The Secret”

Here is an excerpt from Deepak Chopra M.D. book,
Creating Affluence~Wealth Consciousness in the Field of all Possibilities

“D” stands for the law of demand and supply. Whatever service we are here to give, there is a demand for it. Ask yourself, “How may I serve?” and “How can I help?” The answers are within you. When you find those answers, you will also see and know that there is a demand

for your service.
“D” also stands for dharma. Each of us has a dharma, a purpose in life. When we are in dharma, we enjoy and love our work.

Noah St. John Ph.D, inventor of Afformations® and author
of The Secret Code of Success, shares some thoughts;

All suffering is caused by attachment. All feelings of less-than are caused by comparison. The only way we can feel less-than is to compare ourselves to someone else. Suffering occurs when we are attached to things that are transient – namely all things in the physical world. STOP comparing yourself to others. START comparing your current self to your past self. Are you progressing? Moving forward?
Are you a better person than you were a year ago, two years ago, three years ago? What have you learned in the last year about yourself, your friends, humanity, life on Earth? Are you bringing more value to the world? Are you allowing yourself to prosper as you add value to others? At the end of your life, you won’t be asked if you made as much money as someone else. You’ll be asked if you did the best you could with what you were given-if you became the person you were meant to be, and shared your blessings with the world.

This is a powerful afformation to try on: “why do I have faith in myself?”
