10 Self-Affirmations To Start Your Day On The Right Foot

How you start your day can very well determine how it will go and even how it will end.

Kicking off your morning with self-affirmations can be a major game changer for your entire day. It can up that confidence and help you accomplish so much more because you'll feel the strength to do it. I know I've had so many mornings when I just wake up in a funk, and that messes up my attitude for an entire day.

The moment you start feeling like life is a blessing, it starts BEING one.

When Nothing is Sure, Everything Is Possible

quote source and image: Instagram

“When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life. It means fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do and no longer prevents you from taking action to initiate change. The Roman philosopher Tacitus rightly observed that 'the desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise.' If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into aliveness, alertness and creativity.” - Eckhart Tolle

Are You a Thermostat or a Thermometer?


No matter what’s going on in the foreground of your life, stop, breathe, and feel into the silent Love that’s always, already in the background. This is not flowery language... this isn’t something to visualize, or imagine... this is a real, felt-experience you’re overlooking in every eternal-instant. When you’re remembering IT, feeling IT, your life becomes an extension of IT, and everyone in the room... in the world, benefits! #BeHerNow

Love,
Nik

p.s. you don’t have to shift from ‘mad af’ straight into ‘excitement’. You don’t have to grin, or ‘fake it til you make it.’ You only have to feel a tiny bit of the Peace that you are... just a sliver, just a piece of Peace. Noticing the Love, the Peace, the Go(o)d that is present alongside the inner and outer drama... that IS ‘surrender’, the ‘let go’, the ‘acceptance’ that creates just enough space in you for the miracle to happen. Let IT

"As Soon As You Let Go, the Path Reveals Itself."

‘Letting go’ isn’t some vague, mystical, or esoteric practice. Just relax, ma! You’re usually all knotted up inside, and don’t know it. ‘Letting go’ is shifting out of the energy of ‘problems’, and ‘confusion’, and into the energy of ‘solutions’, and ‘clarity’. Surrender has the vibe of ‘vacation’, ‘love’, and ‘Saturday morning’. Get it?

Simply scan your body for this unconscious tension and then allow it to release. Breathe... melt... SMILE. When you consciously relax the body, it automatically, and effortlessly relaxes the mind. And when the mind is relaxed, you feel Go(o)d. Keep letting go, stay surrendering, and watch what happens!

The Power of 'Already'


Challenge: For the next hour (see?! baby steps... set your phone alarm), I want you on guard, ready to catch and dismiss every imposter thought that says ‘when is ______ gonna happen for me?’ or ‘where is my _____ I’ve been wanting, needing, and praying for?’, or any thought that pops into your awareness that suggests you’re not there yet, you aren’t HER yet, or it’s not yours yet.

The Gift of Silence

Can you hear this picture? Listen...

by Dr. Bruce Davis of SilentStay.com via HuffingtonPost

In silence we can hear our own thoughts. Perhaps more beautiful we can hear the world without the crowded stream of our thoughts. Visiting silence can be an adventure, a pilgrimage, a life changing journey into peace and quiet. We can be quite busy and loud in our attempts to make a more peaceful world. Maybe the peace we seek is not so complicated. Maybe the quiet we want can begin with turning down the noise we routinely live with. Real peace and quiet can be no further then spending some time in silence.

The Problem with Career Envy


By Kaila Kea

For many women of color, working hard is nothing new. Balancing love, life, and career is natural to you. In fact, you don’t know how to walk away from a challenge without giving it your all. Although this sense of determination can serve us well, it can also drive us toward career envy.

Don't Let Your Inner Voice Run Amok: #BeHerNow


Fun fact: When that little voice isn’t focused on something productive, like reading this passage, it starts reading you. It’s hella critical and the primary source of your angst and confidence issues. Listen to it the next time you’re idly scrolling IG. Notice how it compares, how it judges and berates...how it’s most attracted to the tea spilling posts and negativity. Notice how when you’re in traffic it chimes in to complain or offer advice on what you should’ve said when your colleague came for you yesterday and what you need to say if she comes for you today. Notice how 99% of the time it’s reminiscing about or regretting the past or projecting into the future (it is actually the only reality the past and future has Now). It never rests... well, it does, when you’re asleep, if it lets you fall asleep.
