Hello, to all you wonderful people out there!! I thought today I would share with you a few of the positive affirmations/Mantras that I have been repeating to myself as of late. We always hear about the concept of positive thinking and how we can open ourselves up for something great. By bashing away the negativity with some decent thoughts, good might actually come of it! Well, having a happy way of thinking can certainly turn your entire day around, that’s for sure. I decided to place them all on photos that I’ve taken, just to jazz them up a bit for you!
I was in a rough patch for a while. A terrible way of thinking and allowing myself to get sucked into the vortex of: “I wish” or “Why Don’t I Have” or “Life Sucks”. I noticed a pattern. Every time I took on that notion, my day got worse. The more terrible I felt about myself, the more it ingrained into other parts of my life.
Finally I had enough. I decided to try it. I picked probably one of my worst days, as everything that could go wrong, was going wrong. It was like life had some kind of score to settle. From not fitting into my clothes, to angry and fighting children, to completely cracking off a canine tooth. (And trust me, that was only the beginning.) After I had myself a good cry, I did my best to switch my train of thought to something positive. Reminding myself that things could always be worse, and I that I am grateful for the things that I have around me.
It was hard at first, but it came easier as the day went on. I noticed I was starting to smile more. Then like a domino effect, everything else started to follow in the same direction! Kids were getting along, I was singing in the kitchen again, I started working out again. Now when I find myself starting to fall into those nasty negative thoughts, I stop. I spring back and recite some of my little chants in my head over and over until I start to feel better. Believe it or not, it really does help me feel better!
Here are some that I like to repeat to myself! I have to admit that since I started repeating some of these to my day, they have really changed my outlook and how things have been happening for me.
