I begin my days by starting with God and speaking positive affirmations over myself, my life, and my day.
For the purpose of this post, I want you to start setting daily life affirmations for yourself that are effective and bring you peace as you say them. So, here is my list of how to create effective affirmations:
Determine what it is that you may be struggling with or what you want to work on.
For example, knowing my self-worth was my biggest issue which stemmed from not feeling like I was ever enough in the relationships and situationships I was putting myself in with men. So, my first and most important affirmation is “ I am MORE than enough”
Find out what does God say about you.
A lot of our self-esteem issues are insecurities that were created by some big head person who decided that they wanted you to have, for example, a bigger butt or smaller lips (these were my insecurities). These are what pleases the flesh, not the heart and because of the fact that God created us in His image, I am perfect in His eyes and that will be the case for my future husband.
Write it down.
Committing something to memory goes beyond just seeing it. Writing it down and then seeing it every single day, will turn these affirmations into a lifestyle for you that your mind will begin to believe it. That’s what we want. sn: Seeing is not always believing because obviously no one would believe in God if that were true, however, your mind will begin to believe it which will trigger a confidence so strong in you that you will begin to live it.
When I wake up in the morning, I see these affirmations, and read them out loud. Say it with confidence and say it with belief. Half the battle is reading it, the other half is actually hearing yourself say these positive words to yourself. You deserve to hear yourself speak positive in a world where we tend to speak negatively about ourselves.
Strategically Place Them.
The best part of waking up is that- God woke you up. Because my affirmations are placed on my wall where I lay my head, these are the first words I see. I also place them in my bathroom, because that is usually the second place I go when I wake up. So, not only have I said it once, I get to see it when I wake up, when I go to the restroom, when I am getting ready for a bath, and when I am about to close my eyes for rest. Strategic right?
Now, the affirmations examples given in this post is not only about relationships, obviously. I have an affirmation that I made up about how I want my day to go because I struggled with a negative attitude towards going to work or even just starting my day period. What kind of thanks is that to give to He who blessed me with another day of life. So, since it has helped me so much, I figure I’d share it with you guys again:
Today is ALREADY a good day. Everything is ALREADY okay.Everything I need, I ALREADY have.
Sending you love and light,
