Re: Wellbeing Wednesday - Affirmations!

Love this thread! One of my go-to affirmations that I love to start my day off with:

“ What a good day to have a good day Smiley Happy

It’s really simple, but it really helps me on those days when I’m rolling out of bed tired and not feeling it. Makes the day start off on a positive note and with promise!

One that instantly came into mind was this quote from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath:
01-P75-15_Web_Shadow__99793.1546711612
Sometimes, you just need to ground yourself and know you are there, alive, and living in the moment. Our hearts are doing so much to keep us here yet most of the time we don't even notice. I'm sure there's a thousand interpretations of this quote outside it's literary context (I've seen some cool tattoos of it!), but that's how I like to take it.

Re: Wellbeing Wednesday - Affirmations!

@Esperanza67  this is amazing! I love it soo much!

 

@queenP that sounds so special!!! Heart

 

@gina-RO  I have previously loved the content you've shared from Janellesilver and have followed her on instagram! So great! Also really loving that you make your own affirmations Heart

 

@Jess1-RO I absolutely love both of those Disney quotes! The Dr Sues one was one of my lines in my year 12 drama major back in the day Heart 

 

So at first, I thought that affirmations didn't really have a place in my life but when I stopped and thought about what an affirmation is - a statement to encourage positivity and self-empowerment, I realised that there are times in my everyday life were I do give myself affirmations to get through, some I can recall of recent are

"Slow down, take your time, it doesn't matter if it takes more than a second"

"Just breathe" 

 

And as I was thinking about writing this just now I've been looking at my whiteboard of magnets and there are 3 which make me smile all the time.

This one is a strip of paper which I've blue-tacked to my whiteboard; I found this in a library book at TAFE while studying several years ago. I remembering finding it as I flipped the page to continue reading the topic and there it was. It just made me smile and it was what I needed at the time. I kept it because it was a nice surprise and it made me feel warm inside.

This one is an actual magnet. I had seen it in a local bookstore and I just loved the floral patterning and the metallic shiny writing. Believing in myself is something which I have trouble with at times, so this just spoke to me. It was a gift to me to remember that I am worthy enough to achieve greatness and to believe in myself Heart

And this one, another magnet. I have always loved this affirmation. I think it speaks for itself, but to me, it also follows a similar idea to the first one.


Remember you're amazing just as you are Heart

If anyone likes Escape the Fate they might recognise these lyrics Smiley Tongue 


I am strong, I am weak

I am everything between.

I am proud to be me,

I am human. 

 

Another affirmation that I find helpful when I need to literally force myself through a hard situation is: I am strong. I am brave. I have got this. (the extent to which i ever truly have "got this" is debatable haha Smiley LOL
