Affirmations That Inspire Me.
All of the above?
Earlier this year I came across an Instagram post from a woman I follow and admire that advised that in 2018 she hoped to see fewer affirmations. Her caption was lengthy and well thought out. She noted how she found them disingenuous and utterly gag-worthy. I understand. They can come across really silly or overly optimistic or quite judgmental at times.
Having said that, I can not resist a good affirmation. When in a foul uninspired mood I can always count on my “Lovely Quotes” Pinterest board to find something that resonates. I also keep a list of quotes on my phone for quick reference as well. Words have power. When we meditate on them, we find our truths—we find our power.
Books can provide us with such power as well. Once we fall in love with a story, it is easy to reread it, make it your own and pick out some of the quotes that most speak to us.
Alas, I will not be sharing some of my favorite bookish quotes today. That post will come in the not too distant future. My objective for today’s post is to share some of my favorite affirmations. These are simple but when recited with repetition and through deep Ujjayi breaths they live within me and somehow make me feel better for it. These words are powerful and I hope they affect you with great positivity as well.
I am enough.
Que sera, sera.
I choose love.
Patient. Forgiving. Kind. Love.
With patience and kindness, anything is possible.
