Affirmations of the Week!

Hello

Welcome, to this week’s Affirmations of the Week!

Positive Affirmations Every Monday!

Many of us struggle daily with our inner negative Nancy. Although, I have discovered a way to block out negative thoughts. It helps to write down positive quotes and affirmations that make me feel confident and more at peace.

 When I find myself in a mood for the day, I refer back to the positive quotes and affirmations I’ve previously written to help snap out of the negativity. Happiness is a choice you have to choose everyday. I know all too well, how easy it can be to fall into that overthinking cycle of negativity, and how difficult it can be to get out. That’s the reason I make these posts every Monday to help others like me break that cycle. 

*Quotes by Roy T. Bennett, The Light In The Heart*

  • The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.
  • What other people think and say about you is none of your business. The most destructive thing you can do is believe someone else’s opinion of you.
  • Being grateful does not mean that everything is necessarily good. It just means that you can accept it as a gift.
  • Keep your mind open. The meaning of things lies in how good people perceive them. The same thing could mean different meanings to the same people at different times.
  • The biggest wall you have to climb is the one you build in your mind.
  • Stop comparing yourself to other people, just choose to be happy and live your own life.
  • No amount of regretting can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future.
  • You need to have faith in yourself. Be brave and take risks. You don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward.
  • Dreams don’t work unless you take action. The surest way to make your dreams come true is to live them.
  • To have what you have never had, you have to do what you have never done.
  • Do what is right, not what is easy nor what is popular.
  • Strong people have a strong sense of self-worth and self-awareness; they don’t need the approval of others.
  • Great things happen to those who don’t stop believing, trying, and being grateful.
  • Nothing can disturb your peace of mind unless you allow it to.

*Personal Affirmations*

  • I am beautiful inside and out.
  • I can choose how I want to perceive every situation.
  • I am embracing each moment with gratitude.
  • I am letting love lead the way.
  • I am healthy and I am free.
  • I have the right to be happy, to shine, to succeed.
  • I live in a world full of infinite love.
  • Kindness is free.

Ways To Feel More Secure

Ways To Feel More Secure

What does it mean to feel secure?

To feel secure means to feel safe, protected, and loved. The sense of knowing you are not alone, you are not in danger of being attacked, and you are not afraid.

Feeling secure with yourself, your relationship. It isn’t easy at all. I, for one, am steadily at being insecure, a pro at turning everything into negative thinking. But lately, I’ve been thinking. What would help me to feel more secure?

For some people, the feeling of security means to have a good job that you enjoy, with a generous income, but I want to discuss the emotional sense of security. The side of you that judges what you wear or how others look compared to you. Being insecure can destroy many things in your mind, body, and soul. Feeding my negative demons inside with all the insecurities, I’ve forgotten how to feel secure in my very own flesh. Down below are a few examples that help me to remain confident and secure.

I hope this can help those struggling to feel secure as I am. Although I’m still learning, I thought I’d share some tips with you. Enjoy!

Ways To Feel More Secure With Yourself.

Talk to yourself, give yourself multiple pep talks. Let that positive ” I can” voice in and challenge all negative thoughts that come to mind with a positive view. DO NOT BULLY YOURSELF! Be your mind’s own best friend, and support it with love and kindness. No matter how bad things get inside your thoughts, focus on the positive ones.

Reach out for support. Try to call a friend, a family member, or anyone who you can talk to that will remind you that you are loved, and they are thinking about you always. You are not alone, and the people that love you are only a phone call away whenever insecure.

Believe in yourself. If you let the voice in your head keep telling you that you can’t do something, not only will you start to believe it.., your heart will consider it too. You won’t give as much effort as you would if you had encouraged yourself in the beginning, and less motivation used almost always results in failure. Trust your heart, and believe in yourself that you can do anything if you just support and trust your heart.

Take care of your body. Feeling a range of emotions can be overwhelming, causing tension in our bodies, which can be very unhealthy after some time of no release. It’s vital to take time for yourself to relax and take deep breaths to help relieve some tension you might be feeling. Do a mental body scan, if any areas feel tensed up, continue your deep breathing, and mentally breathe into the areas that need release.

List your attributes. Everyone has good things in themselves, make a list of what’s good about you. Write about your positive attributes, from physical features to personality traits. Try to explain in detail why it is you like these things about yourself, and when you realized you had it in you.

Smile to yourself, In the book, 10-Minute Mindfulness by S.J. Scott & Barrie Davenport. They talk about many benefits of smiling at yourself every time you catch a glimpse of your reflection. Even if it is fake, a smile at yourself has proven to increase your mood positively, having a much better attitude towards the day.

Notice how grateful you are. Take some time, notice all the good in the world. Be grateful for running water, easy access to food, opportunities, freedom, I can go on. Simply being mindful of your gratitude, and feeling blessed leaves your heart feeling full, resulting in more radiant you.

When you look good, you feel good. Take a shower, shave your legs, fix your hair, do your make-up, get dressed up, but do it for yourself, not anyone else. Appearing confident on the outside influences the way you feel about yourself on the inside.

Think and act in a positive way. Do something good even when no one is watching, and never! Never judge, not yourself, or anyone else. Acts of kindness boost our spirits and those of others. When someone sees you in the act of kindness, it usually will spark hope in them to spread kindness to someone they come across that is in need as well.

Ways To Feel Secure In Your Relationship.

Let go of the little things. I struggle intensely with holding grudges. Ranging from big to small, I will hold on to it and used it when I feel threatened. Which isn’t healthy at all, it’s very toxic in any relationship. It’s important to know that nobody in this world is perfect. People make mistakes, talk it out if you are upset, you’ll feel SO much better to get it off your shoulders. There is no reason you should stress yourself out over something so small, something you can’t control, talk it out, let go and move on with life.

Focus on the positive. Think about the 1st time you noticed your partner, first moment you fell in love? Reminisce about the things that excite you about your partner, think of the times you truly felt at home with each other. This practice is remarkably rewarding to do when you both are upset with each other it aids you back to one another, and recognize why it’s necessary to keep trying.

Speak up. If you feel uneasy with your partner about something that was said or done, don’t leave it alone to eat up at you until you explode, which is incredibly toxic for yourself and your relationships. Let them know right away, talk about it like adults, find a solution, and you both will feel more secure with each other.

Touch each other. Never underestimate the power of physical touch. Holding hands, kissing, cuddling, and eye contact is so necessary toward showing your partner you love and care about them. Communicate to your partner about how touch is essential and ways you can make an effort to touch each other more often.

Support each other. Give each other support in whatever it is that inspires them. Whether it be a hobby, tough decisions, career change, if they believe in it, you should too, you should be their cheerleader cheering them on with love support as they achieve their goals and live their dreams, and your partner should do the same for you.

Trust! Past relationships with bad experiences can make trusting anyone ever again very difficult, especially if your stubborn like me. I am very protective of my heart. My mind is my worst enemy when it comes to putting my faith and trust in someone else, but this is a very unhealthy habit that has caused many problems in my relationships, resulting in bitterness.

Having trust in your relationships is the first step to having a happy and healthy, long-lasting, beautiful relationship. When you begin to trust, it feels like being in a field of wildflowers, but you have to plant the first seed.

Stop playing games. Play board games, not mind games.
Mind games in a relationship are the worst kind of toxic. Leaving your partner to chase after you will only result in you pushing them away, maybe it was cute in high school, but we are adults now. And playing with someone’s heart and emotions is very annoying, and unhealthy for your partner to have to deal with, Do NOT take your partner for granted.

Remember that they choose you. You have got to STOP comparing yourself and your relations to others. This person picked you out of so many other flowers you are extraordinary to your partner, cherish that.

Don’t jump to conclusion. Often, if we sense something is off in our partner, we tend to panic and automatically assume the worst. While feeling anxious and insecure, it turns into a dispute because we’ve jumped to a conclusion instead of just communicating with our partner. This behavior of passive aggression can cause our partner to want to distance themselves. Always remember communication is key!

Make an effort. A relationship always takes two. Don’t leave everything up to your partner. You should be just as responsible. If you feel overwhelmed or feel your partner isn’t putting in the effort, and you need some help. Communicate with your partner the importance of having equal responsibilities in a relationship. Compromise a solution that works for you both and makes you both happy.

I am Full of Gratitude

I am Full of Gratitude

Today I woke up to the soothing feeling of my air conditioner, next to my love, I am full of gratitude.
I made my bed mindfully, something I learned from reading.
A book that has opened my eyes, on how to be mindful, minus all the lies
For that, I am full of gratitude.
I sat down, relaxed, I am blessed, truly feel blessed.
I imagine what happiness looks like
my mind paints a picture.
Wildflowers, lilies, roses
Miles and miles,
Sunflowers, tulips, daisies, colors all enraging.
No end in sight, no need to take flight
Happiness is home
a field full of flowers.
and because of that,
I am full of gratitude.

Find Yourself

Find Yourself

What does it mean to find yourself?
To find yourself means to find out the kind of person you are and what you want in life.
So what kind of person am I?
Because I know the person I want to be, and I know what I want in life, but what if the person I want to be isn’t the kind of person I am?
What if I’m lying to myself about being high and mighty when in reality I’m just another wannabe.
What does it mean to find yourself?
To find yourself means to pick a personality trait and mock it till you can rock it, Right?
What does it mean to find yourself?
“Reflect on your past, you’ll find yourself at last.”
They say with smiles that go for miles.
Still, I ask you.
What does it mean to find yourself?

Old Memories

Old Memories

My fondest memory was back when I was a little girl over the moon, excited to be going on a road trip with my parents. We were on the way to my mom’s long lost best friend’s wedding in Giddings, Texas, Just about 8 hours away from Amarillo, my home town. A short drive for most, but as for me, this was my first ever road trip, we stopped more times than expected just for the sightseeing. To a little girl, it was excruciatingly long, but I loved every minute of it.

I can vividly remember watching all the beautiful trees and all kinds of different cars racing by, me sitting in the back seat of my mom’s little car, my dad in the driver’s seat mom in the passenger. I remember seeing a young lady, maybe in her mid-20s, driving along beside us. As she passed, I must have drifted off into a daydream when all I remember is me wishing I could be her or anything like her when I grow up. A beautiful young lady traveling in her very own vehicle to only she knew where she’d end up. Independent, Happy, and free. I pondered what her line of work could be for her to be able to afford to travel on her own. My parents worked so hard all the time but still had so little. They used to tell me all the time, “traveling is a luxury that we can never afford.” As a little girl thinking, “if my parents can’t afford it, how will I ever be able to?”

All I wanted was to travel to see the world. I didn’t get out much in general, but I always knew the answer would be a no before I was even able to finish the sentence. Seeing that young lady sparked something in me that I never realized until I got older. My goal has always been to travel, and to see the world, it wasn’t just a daydream, it was real. I didn’t know it then, but that memory has been the fuel to my fire. The thing I held onto as I grew up to be the exact beautiful, young, hardworking woman I am today, the woman, younger me wanted to be.

Little ole me

Today I have a great job to be blessed with that allows me to travel and make my dreams come true, and I never even realized it. I am so grateful for the opportunities, and beyond blessed to be living the life I have.
This memory means so much to me because when I reflect on how I used to feel about my future as a little girl, I never had any support. When I got up the nerve to share my inspirations with my parents, I’d get hit with why it logically wouldn’t be possible for me, and money was always the roadblock. Yet, despite all the negative, I grew up around, I still managed to reach my dream without having to worry about money as my parents did, and I am grateful for that.

I am one lucky bad ass young lady!


The women I always knew I could be.

Daydream

Daydream

I sit and ponder.

My mind slips while I sip.

I dream I’m somebody.

My words have meaning in this daydream.

People see my work and feel connected to it.

I see myself in a pattern.

A routine

The kind only ones with a plan get.

Months pass now I’m still successful.

Still in a routine, just as happy as can be.

But what does this mean?

I must need a routine.

Consistency is key to a content me.

I can be happy, i seen it.

My dream will be my reality.

Bad habits equal fatality.

Determination and motivation

I know who I want to be

I just have to believe in me.

It’s Come Back for Me

It’s Come Back for Me

My dark side got the best of me again this week. I call it that because I have no idea what it is that causes me to feel so insecure. If my day starts and I’m already sad with no known reason, it’s a fight to get out of that funk all day long. During the time of all this chaos in my head, it’s a reaction for me to add more negative overthinking thoughts, regularly arguing with myself. I create outrageous scenarios in my head and believe them to be true to the core. Even if I know it to be untrue, not even I can change my mind. I’ve worked so hard to change this pattern in me, but this week it has won. It’s too powerful it leaves me feeling so helpless against my head, my hell, it’s hard to tell anymore, I’ve lost track. Its a mess up there. I’m sorry. Incredibly sorry for not only those who have to deal with me like this, but I’m sorry for me as well. I know this isn’t good for me mentally. I know it’s scarring. Why can’t I snap out of it? Why can’t I keep focused? I know who I want to be. Some days it’s just not enough, and I don’t know why.
