Somedays I just have to tell myself that I am beautiful, that I'm loved, that I am right where I am supposed to be. There are days that even though I may say it out loud, or may even feel like I know it, the truth is that every day is not always perfect. There are days that are harder than others. Those days, those hard days are the days I turn to my top 11 affirmations.
Do you guys have a list of affirmations that you utilize on those shitty days?
Today I'm sharing some of mine. If you don't have any yet feel free to use mine!
1. You are Loved
Somedays when I'm being extremely hard on myself I have to take that moment to check out. To walk away and remind myself that I am loved. Not just by myself but by those who choose to be there through the good and bad.
2. You look Amazing
I have off days where I quite literally can not find anything in my closet that will work. I feel lost if my outfit is off, therefore, that is why my personal style is important to me. I mean I don't necessarily take it to extremes and dress to the 10's every day but I do require that I feel good in my clothes. However, on those days where things feel off and I feel like nothing looks good, that is when I turn to this affirmation.
3. You can Do this
The paths in our lives are never straight lines. In fact, I always tell the kids that you are here..... your goal is here. There are a billion in one ways to get from point A to Point B. You just have to find the one that's best for you. That's it, keep trying, keep going, you can do it, you have the ability to get there.
4. I am Enough
Social Media is full of photos sharing all the good moments in peoples lives around the world. And yes, there are times when I do find that I'm envious of the lives I think they lead. That's the crucial thought though I only see the good so I think it must be amazing. That's when I have to remind myself that I am enough. My life in pictures looks just as amazing as everyone else around the world.
5. My Success is Defined by Me
I decide what I see as successful or not. Others have their own version of what success is, and it is okay if I don't fit into there box. In fact, I don't want to be in their box. I want to strive to meet my goals be them big or small within my own timeframe, within the timing that works for me.
6. My Mistakes are Learning Moments
I fuck up all the time. I continuously take a right when I should have taken a left, and sometimes yep I have to make a U-turn and go back to where I started. That's okay my mistakes are learning moments. It's a time to grow as a person.
7. Failing is not an Option
I have a tendency to start off strong, yet as the journey becomes longer, and the obstacles seem to pile up right at my front door I can feel myself getting tired. I want to stop, I want to move on, away from whatever goal I'm trying to get to. I wish it would all just stop. The journey is too hard, too long, it's too everything. And yet I can hear this small little voice in the back of my mind its a whisper at first. In fact, it's so faint I'm unable to make it out clearly. Yet as the time passes, it gets louder, stronger, more forceful and I hear it clear as day within my mind
Failure is not an Option.
It's the boost I need to keep going, it allows a sweet burst of energy to enter my mental world and extends into the physical.
8. I can Conquer my Fear
Fear is this uncontrollable feeling. It always starts off small, and yet it just keeps growing and growing. Unchecked fear has the ability to stop you in your tracks. It causes doubt, insecurity, and hesitation, and or inaction. It's these times that I have to repeat over and over to myself that I can conquer my fear, my fear will not stop me, it can not stop me.
9. I'm in Charge of My Destiny
I have the ability to change my path at any moments notice. I can decide that the way I'm traveling is not headed in the right direction for me. Those moments are the ones where I pull out this affirmation. I'm in charge of my destiny, I can change my mind, and most importantly I'm in charge of my destiny.
10. I have the Answer
There are many moments in one's life where they feel so overwhelmed by the situation that they are in that they become lost in the abyss that is the problem. Those moments are where I reach for this affirmation. "I have the answer" reminds me to stop worrying about the issue, to not focus on the noise that is surrounding me at that moment. "I have the answer" reminds me that I can find the answer, I can solve this problem and I can not only work my way through it I can conqure this obstacle.
11. I'm Doing My Best
I don't have to perfect all of the time I can just be me. And just being me is me acknowledging to myself that I am doing my best, and that's okay. Perfect is overrated anyways.
