Always on time

March 1, 2013 - Meg Alexander
This week I learned about GLOW, an effort created by Traci Lardy and Jeannie Green, Fairmont natives who created the presentation in an effort to encourage people to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. The acronym, for anyone who didn't read the article in Friday's paper, stands for Granting yourself gentleness; Latching on to the affirmative; Offering and listening to praise; and Winning thoughts. (See more at:

I really liked what they had to say, but I've got to confess, I am a little skeptical when it comes to positive affirmations, or restating a goal as a present-time fact. One example they gave was to stop saying, "I have a bad memory," and instead say, "I am an expert at remembering."

Based on the directions handed out at the GLOW presentation, you are supposed to pick five affirmations that you feel are important to you and repeat them three times per day for 30 days. After the 30 days, you're supposed to keep the ones you need to continue to work on and make new ones.

I've decided to give it a shot and see how it goes, but I'm just going to share two of my affirmations here. The first one has been a personal goal at which I've yet to succeed, and the second is one of the examples in the handout that seems quite applicable to my life:

— I am always on time.

— I think, speak and act perfect health.

Would anyone else like to take this 30-day affirmation challenge with me? If so, let me know how it goes for you, and I'll let you how I'm doing this time next month.
