Self- Concept Thursday!

Self- Concept Thursday!
Hola Chicas,

It’s that time again!

Remember that an affirmation can help you replace a negative thought (ex. I’ll never find love) with a more helpful positive one (ex. I’m worthy of love, and I will find it in time). By using the power of positive affirmations and by repeating them, you can recondition your brain and change how you feel and think about any situation (your appearance, your hair, a relationship, etc.). You can choose to be happy, no matter the circumstances! It will transform your life.

Share your affirmations here, but remember to revisit and reflect on them everyday– in the evening before retiring, in the morning before rising, during prayer, meditation, or while exercising! This is one habit you need to develop… as another reader stated, don’t just think them, say them aloud! Own it 🙂

My Affirmations for 7/8/10:

-I’m blessed to have a husband that puts up with my shenanigans.

-Everything will work out.

-I will be a great momma!

-I am beautiful.

-I can make it through these last months of pregnancy.

-I am happy and loved.

Inspiration from a CN reader:

Bridgette writes:

Every Friday I send a weekly text message to my friends and family that are positive and inspirational. Most are quotes that I hear or run across and I send them out to hopefully motivate and inspire the ones I love. Today I’m sharing one with the CN community:

‘God can dream a bigger dream than you ever could for yourself’
-Oprah Winfrey

***I’m doing an all call for inspirational quotes, videos, short blogs, and articles that relate to improving self-esteem, and developing a positive body image and sense of self. We’re calling it Self-Concept Thursdays! Send your submissions to using Self-Esteem as the subject line.

In the meantime, leave your Positive Affirmations below!***

Later Gators,
