I am in it and not of it

When I was writing The Throwaway Year, I had no idea that I would begin to adopt the self-affirmations myself. I knew they were damn good and insightful, but I've recently realized that I've adopted the 'positive affirmation' life style.

It's strange that I only figured that out just this past week. I began this strange mantra in my head when faced with the 'silliness' of everyday life and people; I am in it and not of it. I may have to be surrounded by all the 'junk' that the world throws at me but I refuse to allow it to  to take root in me, change me, or dictate my actions. I have my mind on my own prize. I look at the common denominator when it is time to deal with others; that others effect me as much as I allow them to. I release you; my unwanted garbage, anger, addictions, prejudices and self-doubt. And on and on and on...

These are my thoughts these days. For more of my positive affirmations then hashtag TheThrowawayYear on twitter. Pepper Pace twitter page.
