I sure do hope your week is going well. Mine has been fun - I've been handling lots of small different projects and running errands all over Melbourne. (My Snap Fam knows!) I'm excited about life and happy that we're almost at the end of 2016. Heaven knows it hasn't been our most sunshine-filled year. I don't know about you but I've needed a little extra motivation to get through many days. Here are five affirmations I've used on days I feel overwhelmed.
1. I am talented
“We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson
2. I am worth it
“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.” ~C. JoyBell C.
3. I am capable
You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. ~ Michael Jordan
4. I am human
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ~ Lao Tzu
5. I am blessed
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and give thanks continuously...all things have contributed to your advancement, so you should include all things in your gratitude.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Remember to keep your head high and wake up and show up. If you're reading this, you're already winning!
As always I’m sending you lots of love and sunshine!
