“Today I Affirm”: 7 Daily Affirmations

I completed a challenge recently over the past seven days that I found on alex_elle's Instagram page.  The challenge was to create one affirmation per day using three words given on each day.  The challenge began on 7/17 and ended on 7/24. I successfully completed the challenge and after creating my final affirmation I felt truly empowered by what I was able to accomplish.  I wanted to share with you all the 7 affirmations I created over the last week, and how they have resonated with me in this particular point in my life.  Each one is significant, as it identifies with something that I was dealing with in that specific day, and somehow, I was able to abide by my affirmation and see it all the way through to the end.

As I reflect over the past seven days and go back through the affirmations I created for myself, I have to give myself credit for finding the right words to put together despite the week I had.  It was not one of my best weeks, and I had to admit that I found it to be a challenge taking on the task of creating positive affirmations during a week where I found myself not finding many things going positively at all.  Looking back, I can see the strength in my words, and can feel the resiliency in what I typed out as I dug deep within myself to find whatever was left within my spirit to hold on to some level of positivity.

Below is a list by date of my seven daily affirmations:

"Today I affirm…"

7/17: that I will allow love to prevail in all things, despite the trials I may face throughout the day.

7/18: that what hurts me will not discourage my healing or prevent me from moving forward with my goals.

7/19: that joy will be abundant far beyond the circumstance of life.

7/20: that a failure along the way will not stop me from the ability to enjoy my journey.

7/21: that I will adopt the courage and the patience to hit "restart" if life begins to overwhelm me.

7/22: that my life will not be of any others to own and I will find truth in understanding God's plan for my life.

7/23: that I will not look at the shift in my life as difficult. I will embrace the change, I will become better, stronger and wiser for it; because I know it will all be beneficial for my well-being.

7/24: I will destroy negative thoughts. I will be intentional in my positive thinking and understand that the opportunities put in front of me are mine to manipulate to benefit me!
