On a hard day that means, “Whatever happened today was from Hashem, and I’m going to be happy about it no matter what!!”
On other days, “What happy happenings Hashem has made on this day, let’s be happy about it!!”November 5, 2013 7:10 pm at 7:10 pm #985921streekgeekParticipant

Yes, I created a few. One is that I say:
“Everyday, in every way, I am getting thinner, stronger, and smarter”
(even if it ain’t true- its good to hear)
“Things are going to work out just fine” (Used approx. 101 times a day lately!)
“I have the power within me to control my life in the direction I want to go in”. (this one actually helped instigate my initial return to Judaism!)
My personal favorite, which ironically I hardly use is:
“Before I diagnosis myself as angry, bi-polar, BOrderline personality or anxiety disorder, first do a check if I am not in fact surrounded by jerks”November 6, 2013 12:25 am at 12:25 am #985924the-art-of-moiParticipant
Every morning, I tell myself-
There are blessings hidden everywhere- I will find them. That is what I am on this world for.
Then whenever I’m upset I think-
Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.

“Gam Zu Le Tovah”
“A Day at a Time”November 8, 2013 4:19 pm at 4:19 pm #985943yytzParticipant
I don’t have one personally, but here are a few ones recommended historically:
1) the Yerushalmi says that one should always have on one’s lips the phrase from Tehillim, “Lord of Hosts, happy is the man who trusts in you.”
2) “Gamzu l’tovah,” as mentioned in Talmud Bavli in the story of Nachum Gamzu.
3) The Shulchan Aruch rules that one should always be in the habit of saying, “Everything the Merciful One does is for the good.”
4) Rebbe Nachman of Breslov recommended that people repeat the phrase “Ribbono shel olam,” when they find themselves unable to practice hisbodedus in his preferred sense of talking to Hashem in your own words.November 8, 2013 5:16 pm at 5:16 pm #985944WIYMember
