Today I am going to share with you a couple affirmations that will boost feelings of love and confidence in your mind, body, and spirit.
If you think you've never done affirmations before - you're wrong. Affirmations are self-talk. We affirm who we are to ourselves every single day through affirmations. We do this all the time whether we are aware of it or not. The difference between normal self-talk and these affirmations is that they are more deliberate and intentional. Plus, most of our routine self-talk is negative and lazy, whereas these affirmations are literally seeds of love that you plant in the soil of your mind.
A few things to keep in mind when saying affirmations:
The first affirmation is for overcoming regret:
Even though I [fill in with something you are feeling bad about], I deeply love and forgive myself.
State these words boldly and powerfully. With this one, I like to focus on the "even though" at the start.
The second affirmation is for expanding gratitude:
Thank you for working so hard every day. I love you.
I state this affirmation with my hand on my heart. I say the words directly to my heart in appreciation of it.
How you speak to yourself matters tremendously. No one on God's green Earth deserves your love more than you.
Please comment below. I would love to hear your own experiences with affirmations.
