I’m truly touched by all of the positive feedback I got on my last post. I’m glad it resonated with so many of you. It’s something I’ve wanted to write about for the longest while but felt maybe it was sharing too much information. And that tinge of doubt stayed right up until I hit publish. But there’s a saying I repeat to myself often to move past the fear of being vulnerable:
Your honesty may not be for everyone but there’s someone whose life depends on it!
Today, I wanted to share some of the affirmations I started saying on a regular basis which have helped to curb the negative thoughts I used to let run around in my mind. Especially when I felt stuck.
If you’ve seen my post on overcoming negative thinking, you know I’m a firm believer in the transformative power of affirmations. Speaking into my life was hands down one of the key things that triggered my mindset shift and the reframing of my thinking.
I developed the following list from Bible verses, images and lists I saw on Pinterest, as well as an app I used for a period of time called My Affirmations: Live Positive.
