It wasn't until recently that I noticed how often I spoke down to myself. From thinking I wasn't good enough, that I couldn't accomplish the task at hand, or that someone was better than me. I told myself these things without a second thought. Negativity and self sabotage had become such a huge part of who I was. It was then that I began repeating... I repeated this to myself several times I day. I stopped, I took a breath, I sent myself loving thoughts, and I continued on. Repeating this has helped me remove the negative thoughts that filled my day and has allowed me to stay present in the moment - to enjoy many of the things I used to miss out on when I was wrapped up in the future.
Every thought we have and every word we say is an affirmation. All of our internal dialogue is a stream of affirmations.
Our negative affirmations are toxic - like the ever expanding ripples across water when an object is dropped into it, a negative thought can be followed outwards incrementally, affecting our overall happiness.
What would happen if we gave ourselves time to breath, believe in ourselves, and continue on? Could we accomplish things we hadn't been able to in the past? Could we mend our relationship with ourselves and become more self aware than we ever have been? Positive affirmations, or "declarations to self", teach us how to create positivity to support our goals, dreams, and overall well-being. It is then that we learn how to tap into our mind power and live from our heart. Because when you believe in yourself, anything is possible.
I'm on a mission to evolve my self-esteem into something beautiful by setting positive affirmations for myself. It seems a shame for me to go through this "project" alone. Health, romance, love, peace, harmony, abundance and happiness are just some of the topics I'd love to get into in more detail!
Please join me in discovering how fantastic you can feel when you believe in you!
I'll start it up with a I am fit post in a couple of days. Stay tuned!
