Affirm The Now came from a belief and daily practice of affirming yourSELF in the ways that your SELF is calling for.For instance, a week ago I became hard on myself and my bff stopped me and said, “You’re a perfectionist and you do your best, and I understand you’re striving for more, but affirming where you are is the right thing to do.” Of course I know this and you do too. However, sometimes we just simmer in a space too long and someone or something looking from the outside in says, “Hey! Look at the now.” She proceeded to say, “I know you already know this, but I needed to tell you.”
I have my moments too when I realize that I have to snap myself back into position. And then there are other moments when I realize the ‘snapping back into position' requires some outside love.
There was a time when I would have loved to be here. That is ‘Affirming The Now.’ You are then better able to accept where you are now. The universe can give you more when you appreciate yourself in this space. We know this... We’ve heard it before, and yes, we need to hear it again and again and again. As many times over.
On some level we ALL talk down to ourselves. Or don’t talk ourselves up enough - if at all. There are times where you will write a letter to yourself and it will be a negative love letter. It is designed to push you to be better and do better. Then there are times when you will write a positive letter, which affirms you and repositions your movement.
Here are some affirmations that I’ve heard others use and some I may have used myself:
- I am good enough.
- I’m smart enough.
- I value my input.
- I attract the things I desire.
- I deserve a profitable business.
- I’m smart and I know what I’m doing.
- I may not know what I’m doing, but I trust this silly ass process.
- I may not know what I’m doing, but I trust this process. (Yes, I wrote it w/out the ‘ass’ in there.)
- I deserve good things.
- Good things come to me and I am mindful of those things.
- I’m brave.
- I’m wise.
- I’m strong.
Write down what you need to hear and say it to yourself. Repeat it like it’s a mantra you long to manifest. Allow it to become your reality.
