Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily.
I started my day by saying “I can do this”.
My “this” is something that comes effortlessly for others. Some of y’all just got it like that!
I needed help. A reminder. A push.
Motherhood makes me feel like a failure. On so many levels.
This particular day my toddler child was being particularly testy. And my normal reaction when situations arise I don’t want to deal with with him, is avoidance.
It doesn’t last long. And it never works.
This particular day, I flashed back to blogalicious weekend when my roomie and I were wrapping up our day and she said “girl go in there take a bath and speak some affirmations over your life”.
Now while I didn’t that day, cause I was knee deep in my rebrand and taking in every child free moment I had. It did make me think that I need to start speaking affirmations over myself and to myself.
So I did.
Those words changed my whole day. And as the day came to a close, all I could do was be thankful for a good day.
It wasn’t that the day was free of situations or foolishness. It was that I handled them like a “G”. (G being for good mom)
After everyone was put down for the night and I sat back and thought over my day, a joyous feeling came over me. Like the one when a toddler stays in motion after the training wheels come off.
I DID IT.
I KNEW I COULD.
So I just shared this story to remind you of the importance of speaking words of affirmation. Putting that good juju in the air.
