I want to share something that has helped me over and over again in life. Positive Affirmations. If this is new to you I will explain what a positive affirmation is.

POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS – What are they and how do they work?  

I found that every day if I affirm something that can help me and I write it down, hang it on a mirror or a wall, I will repeatedly read it and draw my thoughts from it throughout the day. Sometimes I just carry it in my pocket. This really works for me and I know many others who it works for too.
No - I CAN'T'S

I am all about the positive. Affirmations are all about the positive. No I can't's. No I won't's. No I shouldn't. No could've, would've, and should'ves. They are our good intentions of how we want to feel about ourselves and how and what we want to put out into the Universe.

Affirmations have helped me regain more confidence when I needed it; feel better about the day, the world, money, career, eating, spirituality, my body...you name it. They help me get through the day or a trying time with all of the positive energy and attitude to take with me throughout that day. When I go to sleep, I know I am a better person because of the positive affirmations. I even say some at night except now I recite what I am grateful for about the day. You will be surprised at the big difference words can make in your life. By adding some positive thoughts to paper you can change your thoughts and change your life.
What are you saying to yourself on a daily basis?

Do you say nice things to yourself when you look in the mirror or not so nice things?  

Be honest. What do you do? How does it make you feel when you say things that aren't nice about yourself? How would you feel if someone else said that about you? Would you say what you are thinking about yourself to someone else about them? Then why would you do it to yourself. You know how it makes you feel.

Really give this thought. What is it that you say to yourself on a daily basis? Words are very powerful and we must choose them carefully and wisely. They truly create our reality. That's right; our words are a choice as everything else is in life.

Start monitoring what you are saying to yourself.
Change your words - use POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS  

•· I choose to eat healthy
•· I choose to exercise consistently
•· I am a beautiful person
•· I love myself just the way I am
•· I choose to get better and better every day
•· I deserve all of the good things I want out of life
•· I enjoy eating fresh, healthy food
•· I am very motivated to work out because I know how good I feel when I'm done
•· I am very fortunate to be so healthy
•· I love who I am
•I move forward without fear

These are just some ideas of what I would use. You need to fill in the blanks with what you wish to create in your life. Whatever works for you – do it. Don't wait another day. Affirmations keep me positive on a daily basis. Am I human? Yes. Do I look at myself in the mirror some days and say "how did I let this happen?" Yes, but for the most part now I say, "You are doing a good job Marion, keep doing the best you can do!" "You are beautiful just the way you are." With those kinds of positive words to myself, how can I go wrong.

Be kind to yourself!  

happy
