Dear Dr. Standley: (Understanding Affirmations)
I just read your book, "And Who Are You?" and now I see where you got the name. Every time I read one of your stories I had to look within myself and say, "Oh yeah, and who are you Sherry?" And even more . . . now I know why affirmations are so vital to my self-confidence and career path. The affirmations are working already.
I related to you in so many of your stories and my favorite was about the guy in the cleaners. I could actually see how ugly I have been to others.
Thank you for helping to increase faith in myself; that I can and will be a better person. Actually, I'm better already.

Thank you for the e-mail.
aaaarrrrggggghhhhhh . . . you just had to remind me of how ugly I was to the guy in the cleaners. (wink wink) That is probably one of my favorite stories too because it was so blatantly obvious how much impact and influence we all have at any given time in our Life. I certainly was not proud of who I was that day, but the Good News is now I "get to" share it with you so that you can learn too and share your awareness with others. It's cool.
As you start creating your own affirmations, remember that they do not have to be complicated. In fact, simplicity I feel is best. Be precise, deliberate and reverant. Let God know that you are clear on what you desire and that you are ready to handle His blessing.
