  2. Even the hard times, are good times with love. Even the confusing times, are chapters for clarity with love. Even the “losses” are gains when we choose to let go with … Love. Whatever we wish to attract, wherever we wish to go, whatever we wish to do … Is only, truly, made possible with awesome, appreciative love. Stand in what you are - and walk stronger toward what you were born here to be. #affirmation XO (at PS 185 Elementary School)

  10. "I offer a gift the world deserves to receive." It’s not always easy to be positive Pollyanna - but when we remember that our light, our enthusiasm, our excitement offers the world a gift … It becomes a responsibility to share it! Your simple presence is a gift to the world. You need not have "done" anything to be important - it is the miraculous essence of YOU that can shift the energy of a room - or heal a person - for the benefit of all. Offer your gift by believing your gift. YOU ARE SPECIAL. Have a beautiful day everyone XO #lipstickaffirmations (at SammyD.tv/affirmations)

     
  11. Please don’t frown on your failures. You always have a second chance. You always have another go - the chance to shift. To be grateful for what you’ve learned - the trials and their lessons - the obstacles baked with opportunity to overcome. Your chance is always now. There is always another step - another stride - another smile. For many of us, the world envies who we are and the life we get to live. Remember that and you can never fail. Remember that with a grateful heart, and you will always succeed. I know you agree. XO (at SammyD.TV)

     
  12. #throwback #tbt: When we need a personal POW of mojo, think back to one of the greatest feats you ever accomplished. We all have a laundry list - but we forget to have gratitude for the greatness we’ve already built, which adrenalizes the greatness we’re creating now. I look back to my 23rd female finish amongst thousands of runners at the 2011 Pittsburgh marathon. Speaking of greatness, I ran with #god that day. A higher power lovingly pulled me on that hilly course. I had slept little the night before, didn’t warm up because I was late to the start and my iPod “mysteriously hadn’t charged.” I ran without music - sleep - BUT I ran with source, 26.2 miles at 3 hours and 18 minutes (7:30 per mile). I may never do it again - but I did it, and you have similar acts of amazingness to look back on and remind you how much #power you already have within you. May you look to the past to help honor the moment - the magic - the potential that is now. YOU GOT THIS. XO (at SammyD.TV)

     
  13. Your growth is your inner guidance helping to shine. Trust it. Work with it. Be grateful for it. #sparkitup (at SammyD.TV)

     
  14. More action, more progress, more living. The ingredient you don’t need? Perfection. Grab THE AFFIRMATION TOTE in Sunny Yellow, Magic Pink or Daring Black on SammyD.TV/shop. Remind yourself of who you already are — a Rockstar. No perfection necessary. XO (at sammyd.tv/shop)
