Affirming Self-Positivity in a Negative World

863C2325-CC7C-405B-A4BD-4C0835C71A33.jpegWe made it!  We can make it through  another week, another day, another hour, another second. We are conquering our demons, our fears one baby step at a time. For someone who just had been through one of the lowest point in their lives one point or another, I think we both deserve a pat on a back.

What exactly are affirmations? According to dictionary.com, It is a form of self-forced meditation or repetition. It is a mantra that we assert and we want to believe to be true in our lives. The main purpose is to provide encouragement, change a bad habit, to help achieve your best self. It is focusing on the positive outcome to reach your potential.

Lately, Ive been struggling to find motivation. I have been reading and searching for inspirational quotes that will uplift and alter my anxious state. It seems like I have to drag my feet to get out of bed, to get a jumpstart during the week. Stressing and worrying seems to get the best of me. No matter how many positive thoughts and sayings that I read, it still didn’t make me change my thought process.

What I realize is that these affirmations are only effective if you believe in that they can work in your life.  These are the personal goals that are first pictured in your mind and then put into action. It maybe wishful thinking, but with a realistic goal that can be attained. Having a positive mind frame have a huge impact in our decision making process.

There are a lot of negative thoughts that I daily struggle with. These are the small wars in our minds that we fight within ourselves.  Every battles no matter how big or small,we can conquer them.  Small things such as getting out of the house, finishing a chore, crossing out a to do list is an achievement for some. Our mountains to scale and climb maybe different to others but it doesn’t lessen your potential to overcome the hurdles.

Some of my favorite mantras are:

Love yourself-your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being is very important

Keep moving forward – Walt Disney

Challenges make me stronger as a person

I am content with my life-my relationships,  my job, myself

I see myself as a work in progress.

“I am only one, but I am still one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. – Helen Keller

I nourish my body with healthy food, exercise and healthy thoughts.

I am unique.

I am enough.

I am worthy.

God loves me unconditionally.
