What's the point of an affirmation? A few years ago, I wasn't sure of the purpose and didn’t think affirmations could really change anything. After all, they’re just words, right?
Words, yes. But the meanings behind them are much more powerful than I realized. Our thoughts do shape our reality, and now I choose to create a more vibrant, positive, and loving one.
We can move into 2016 in fear of the unknown or nursing disappointment from times of the year that didn't live up to our expectations. Or we can choose to kick off the new year believing in ourselves and our dreams and appreciating the goodness in our lives.
Spend a few minutes on each affirmation below, imagining that the words and their meanings are raining down on you like a rain shower.
You might also want to write down your favorite affirmations and stick them on your mirror or your fridge, to let their positive effects build on each other over time.
