This week I thought it would be good to write out some affirmations for your week! This is something I have been doing on my own for about 3 months now. I have since shared this practice with my students to help them through stressful moments and it has helped me become more secure in things going on around me.
I know that affirmations can feel strange at first. What even are they? How do you use them? Why do you say or write them? Personally, I write them down because they will stick in my brain better. I have also become quite the journaling lover so it just makes sense for me. I think about things I want to do or be to become closer to the best version of myself. I also think about what is currently going on in my life, what I have anxiety about, what is making me happy, if there is anything I want to change, etc. Then I write out affirmations that help me narrow in my focus on where I want to grow. I write them out as if I already am that thing or doing that thing. It’s almost a way of speaking it into existence so you can start to become the person that you want to be. I have seen a lot of growth in myself over the past few months simply by using them.
These are some that I have used myself as well as new ones that I have found! I hope you can find one, or a few, that you resonate with!

I hope you were able to find something hit home for you. I want to encourage you to add in 3 affirmations to your week this week! They could be the same everyday or switch them up depending on what you need! Keeping your focus on affirmations that resonate you can help create such a sense of self awareness that you might not get otherwise. It has helped me to feel more myself every day, and I know they could do wonders in your life too!
All the love,
