I’ve been the girl that sought others (solely) for affirmation. Such as hey look at me, and tell me I’m pretty, tell me I’m enough, tell me I’m valuable. I call that, an energy vampire, those were my teen years and I’m not proud of it.
These past few years, I’ve learned to be one with myself, to enjoy my own company and make sure that my vibration is so high, my solitude is cherished.
We all need a little encouragement, and it sure feels good to hear someone say, keep going and you’re doing a great job. At the same time, what if that never happens, what shall one do then?
AFFIRM YO’ Self
If you search affirmations online, you’ll find a list of many mottos that you and I can repeatedly daily. And it helps especially if your home isn’t stable or even you yourself— your physical home & mental space is cluttered with self hate and negativity. It’s time to clean out space and spend time looking at our tousled furniture, the words we repeat to ourselves.
I have a large standing mirror in my room and when I get home from serving others, I stand naked in front of the mirror and speak highly about every part of my body, I put on music and I dance, I sing, I have fun like I’m a fun sleepover…
- Hey you handsome darling.
- Hey you sexy, beautiful, foxy lady.
- I am enough.
- I am valuable.
- I am precious.
- I belong here in this world.
- I have something special to offer.
- I can do what I set my mind, heart, and hands to do.
Even if you don’t believe it, still repeat it and soon you’ll smile and your subconscious will internalize the words as truth and you’ll start standing straight with your shoulders back.
I’m telling you this now because its working for me and when I become low, when my energy is depleted, I return to the affirmations and I’ll return to this article as a reminder.
Test it out for yourself.
The proof is in your own personal experience.
After years of repetition, my mental health is showing improvement.
In the past, I strongly disliked my body, my weight and the distribution of fat in my body and my long legs, I thought they looked gangly & disproportionate.
Now I tell myself, look at me now:
- I am fierce.
- I am golden.
- I radiate good energy + positivity.
- I enjoy my own company.
- I am encouraging and welcoming to myself and others.
- I love my body.
- I love my entire self.
Enjoy the unknown time given on this earth, to witness and experience HOW GREAT YOU ARE —- RIGHT NOW.
