I hope that this past week went well for you. I was extremely lucky to begin the week celebrating mine and my sister’s birthdays with my sister (who I got to see for the first time in over a year and a half!) and my mom, but was unlucky to end the week with an ear infection. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I start feeling better soon, because this stuff is not fun.
I’m so excited to share this week’s affirmations with you all! I actually decided that this week, as soon as I post these affirmations, I’ll be taking a little break from Instagram. I try to take a break at least once a month, and this timing just feels right t me. Things are kinda rough, mental health wise, but are slowly going back to where I want them to be, and I think that taking a step back from social media will be very beneficial.
So, even though I won’t be on Instagram, I will be practicing my affirmations every day, and I hope you will too! Every Sunday (well, most Sundays, if we’re being completely honest.), I post the affirmations I will be using in the upcoming week. I share them in the order I’ll be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.), but I encourage you to use them in whatever way works best for you!
I’ll see you all next week with more affirmations, and hopefully this week with some book reviews – I’ve read so much this month and am so behind in book reviews, so hopefully during my social media break, I’ll be able to catch up a bit on content.
I do not have to feel guilty for saying no.
Guilt and shame will not change my past. Worry and fear will not change my future.
I hope that this past week went well, (well… as well as it could during these unprecedented times.) and that you’re ready to start this upcoming week with some positive affirmations!
Every Sunday, I share seven affirmations that I will be using that upcoming week. I always share them in the order that I will be using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, 3 is Tuesday, etc.), but I hope that you will use them in whatever way works best for or resonates with you!
Can you believe we only have just over a week left in August?? 2020 went by so slow for me, and now 2021 is just zipping by. I would just like time to move at regular, steady pace, please!
Have a great week, and I’ll be back next week!
I am open to change.
I am becoming the best version of myself.
I can say no and not people please.
I am grateful for all that my body is capable of.
My worth is not dependent on the appearance or size of my body.
I am proud of how far I’ve come.
I am confident that I have the resilience to get through anything that comes my way.
One part of my daily routine that really helps set the tone of my day is my recitation of positive affirmations. If you’re anything like me, maybe you think that sounds hokey. I did when I first heard about them. Now, saying my affirmations is one of my favorite parts of the day.
Speaking positivity into my life is super helpful and powerful, especially as someone who struggles with mental illness. My mental illnesses oftentimes cause me to assume the worst in situations, but affirmations remind me of the positive.
Positive affirmations have been especially helpful this year as the world turned upside down, and everything became uncertain. So, if you’re interested in using positive affirmations, I thought I would share 20 that have helped me during the pandemic.
I will focus on what I can control.
I react peacefully and calmly to any situation.
I do my part tokeep myself and others safe.
It is okay to just survive right now.
I am strong and independent.
Worry can not change my circumstances.
I love myself enough to push through.
I can do it. I know I can.
I have the strength and resourcefulness to deal effectively with whatever happens to me.
Happy Saturday, I hope that last week’s affirmations brought you some moments of peace this past week. I’m so excited to begin another week by sharing my affirmations for this upcoming with with ya’ll!
I’ll be sharing them in the order that I’ll be personally using them (1 is Sunday, 2 is Monday, etc.), but you are welcome and I encourage you to use them however work best for you personally!
Have a great rest of your weekend, and I’ll see you next Saturday!
I courageously accept all parts of myself, and embrace my strengths and vulnerability.
Hi friends! Happy Saturday! I hope that you’re enjoying your weekend so far and had a wonderful week! I’m back with this upcoming week. I hope practicing these are just as beneficial for you as they are for me! As always, I personally will practice them in the order they’re in, but you’re free to use them however best serves you. I’ll see you next week!
I am going to be okay.
I am grateful for all that my body is capable of.
I am here to accomplish amazing things, and I share my gifts with the world.
I let go of the fear and doubt within me.
I am loved, no matter how I feel.
My health is more important than beauty standards.
Hi friends! I’m sorry that these are a day late, this past week was really rough for me. But I think you’ll still have time to use the affirmation you choose for today 🙂
Speaking of, I’ve decided to do something a tiny bit different from now on when it comes to sharing these affirmations. Instead of labeling which affirmation is for which day, I’m going to just share the ones I’ll be using for the week, in the order that I’ll use them, and you can choose what works for you. I hope that this way, it’ll be a more personalized experience for you.
So, without further ado, here’s this week’s positive affirmations!
I deserve good things.
I am more than enough.
Beauty radiates from within me.
I’ve survived tough times before, I can make it through this time, too. I am a survivor.
Hi everybody! I hope you had lovely week and are enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation this weekend.
If this is your first time joining us, every Saturday, I share the daily affirmations that I will be using in the upcoming week. The topic of the affirmations will vary, from body positivity, mental illness/health, self care, self compassion, and more. I invite you to practice speaking positive affirmations to yourself, as I truly believe that the way we speak to ourselves has a profound impact on our mental health. I also share the affirmations on Instagram and encourage you to share your practice of these affirmations (to your comfort level, of course!) with me by tagging me.
Have a great week, and I’ll see you next Saturday with the following week’s affirmations!
This Week’s Positive Affirmations.
I am safe.
I am allowed to rest and be at peace.
I accept myself as I am, flaws and all.
I am changing every day, and that is more than okay.
