Power Up With Affirmations


How are we to keep positive when surrounded by vibe vampires? Everyday is a hustle and we have to be on our game. One great way to get moving is using affirmations. Affirmations are quotes typical spoken aloud to oneself or sliently. The art of spoken word helps us form our realities or at least make them more bearable.

We often are our own oppressors and bullies because we let negative thoughts swarm our minds. We have to feed ourselves good thoughts. We have to fuel up with positivity so we can improve our self-image, confidence and productivity.  There is power in positivity. When reciting affirmations, say it so loud that you believe it. Say it so loud that you drown out all the negativity around you. 

You have to look in the mirror and tell yourself you are the baddest in the land. This isn't egotistical - this is self-empowerment. From toddlers to teens and beyond, we could all use a little self-empowerment to tackle our day. The key with positive affirmations is repetition. The more you tell yourself positive words, the more these thoughts will show in your life. You will start to notice that positive thinking is becoming effortless. You will see relationships get stronger, goals getting tackled and moves being made. Often, the only thing stopping you is YOU. Here are a few affirmations to get you started:

I acknowledge my own self-worth; my confidence is growing

I am a powerhouse

I have been given endless talents which i begin to use today

I forgive those who have harmed me in my past and peacefully detach from them.

Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive vibes.

I am enough. There is only one me. I am unique and special.

I wake up today with strength in my heart and clarity in my mind.

I know where i want to be and i will get there

Grab a few post-its and place a few affirmations on your bathroom mirror. Title your morning alarm with short affirmations. Tuck a few in random places throughout your daily routine.Challenge yourself. How are you going to #LiveYourBestLife if your letting vibe vampires bring you down? Power yourself up and maybe you can reach back to help them too!
