As we come to the last weekend of the first month of a new year, the common theme is . . . “time sure went by fast.” That it did! Whether you were productive or not, time moved on. And not to rub it in, but February starts next week.
The positive affirmation for this month “What have you done today in preparation for tomorrow?” Well, what have YOU done? If your answer is work-related and you can list several things you accomplished or completed at work . . . KUDOS to you, but that doesn’t count.
What personal goals did you set or accomplish, whether few or many, big or small. If you did not set any goals, that’s fine too, but realized that just as fast as one month went by so will the next month.
Goal setting and action are bad words to some people because of the pressure. Here’s an easy goal: If you work, leave early one day (guilt-free) to spend time with your children, family, or friends? Then turn the TV and cell phone off and actually influence or be influenced! . . . it’s free.
Here’s another one: Put yourself first. Maybe you want quiet alone time, take it (guilt-free) to hear your inner thoughts. Go outside and enjoy the scenery God has created for you regardless of where you live . . . it’s free.
Take more trips. Laugh more. Love more.

O My God! I ask Thee, by Thy most glorious Name, to aid me in that which will cause the affairs of Thy servants to prosper, and Thy cities to flourish. Thou indeed, hast power over all things. ~Bahá’u’lláh
Welcome to W.H.A.T.!™ Women Helping Affirm Themselves! website. This site is created with YOU in mind (literally!). This is the site where you can find positive motivation and affirm & confirm with women like yourself; women who have successfully triumphed over life challenges.
Each month a positive affirming question is posed and each week a goal. The question and goal are for you to reflect deep within yourself . . . for the HONEST answer. Then you can:
- Keep the question and goal to yourself and journal
- Share the question and goal with only your close friends
- Discuss it with us at W.H.A.T.!™ to affirm and confirm your feelings
But take the time to check your belief systems to see if those beliefs are leading you toward your goals.
I look forward to what the New Year brings and future discussions.
WHAT have you done today in preparation for tomorrow?
It’s a New Year! And you lived to witness it. The rest is up to you!
So stop waiting until the end of the year to begin setting goals. Begin now, one day at a time with a positive affirming monthly theme.
In this first month of the year, start implementing the three W.H.A.T.!™ techniques:
Positive Affirmation: Trust God in ALL situations
Goal Setting: Goals can be big or small, few or many
Action: DOING leads you toward your goals
