How I Use Affirmation Cards

I was asked what I do with the affirmation cards. The cards are like the Community Chest cards used in Monopoly minus the dollar amount for winning the beauty contest. There are 31 cards, one for each day of the month. The cards are shuffled and each day a card is drawn from the top of the pile and displayed on the easel. Along with meditation/prayer, the sentiments on the card are a reminder to focus on the positive instead of caving into the negative emotions often induced by stress, remarks of others, or self-doubt. Life is good.
