7 Affirmation Phrases You Should Start Using Today


As we move into the last month of 2017 and gear up for 2018, I've been thinking a lot about affirmations. To the subconscious mind, affirmations can be extremely powerful. Repeating positive phrases over and over again can attract great things to come into your life. Visualizing these affirmations playing out in your life can also help keep you stay focused and passionate about them. I've began using some of the phrases I will list below, and to be honest, I can feel a change stirring inside of me. So take a read, but grab a post it first, and follow the directions below.

Pre-Work: Gather post-its and a marker. Pick colors that you will gravitate to. If you need the post-its to be neon colors, then so be it.

Directions: Write the phrases below on the post-it, and put them in a place where you will spend plenty of time (office, bathroom, kitchen). Say them out loud Every.Damn.Day. #NoDaysOff. We're trying to build a habit here. Attract that positive energy in your life by creating this routine. That's all you need....and of course, this list below to get you started.

1. I am worthy of love.

Seems simple enough, right? Somehow it evades most of us at one point in our lives or another. We can be so critical of ourselves and makes excuses of why we aren't worthy of love. Well, whatever the reason was- whether you heard from someone else or manifested it all on your own, it's time to reclaim your love...not only from others, but from you to yourself!

2. My integrity is my foundation.

Never waiver from this. Stay true to who you are and let that guide you in all things.

3. I am a woman who can do many things.

So many things! I juggle more than I should, but not more than I can handle. I prioritize my day and try to stick to a routine, but even when I jumble things and life gets crazy, I get it together. We all do. We are not one-trick ponies. Remember that when life gets overwhelming.

4. My self-esteem is not determined by anyone but me.

I said a word here. Comparison is the true thief of joy, and when you give into that-it wreaks havoc on your self-esteem. It's important to remember you hold the power. Don't get so caught up in trying to jump into someone else's journey-it's not meant for you. Embrace your size, height, weight and imperfections...they are what make you perfect, babe.


5. I am more than just a pretty face.

So much more. At this point in the list, you should already know this, but don't let anyone box you into one area. So take your pretty face and conquer the world beautiful!

6. Today, I will be my best self possible.

Self admittedly, I'm looking at this one a lot. I feel the weight of my world on my shoulders daily. 2017 has been one hell of a year, and with that I've had a few days I wasn't my best self. But hey, I'm a work in progress like everyone else, and sometimes I need a reminder that it's OK to work at different capacities depending on my circumstances. No one can be at 100% all the time. We all need a little time to recharge, and sometimes that means sweatpants, Netflix and a few cuss words. I completely get it, but at some point you've got to come up for air, so yeah, I'm working to be in sweats less, have fewer binge nights on Netflix, and curb the cussing...when possible.

7. My body is a work of art.

There is nothing wrong with your body, but there is a lot wrong with the messages which try to convince you otherwise.
— Rae Smith

Your body is a work of art, and it deserves to be worshiped honey! Love every curve on your body. Our bodies tell the story of our lives, and it's a beautiful thing. Fall back in love with yourself in 2017 and put 2018 on notice! #BAM

Hopefully these resonate with you. Go grab your post-its and start your affirmation phrases immediately. 2018 is going to be a great year. I'm affirming it. Are you?

Enjoy today!
