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 ๐Ÿ™‚

My Affirmations for 7/29/10:

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

-I am successful and stable.

-I will be a great momma!

-I am beautiful.

-I am happy and loved.

Open Question from a CN reader:

How do you define success? According to your definition, do you meet the criteria? Are your standards too rigid?

    I 110% agree with anonymous July 29 @ 8:37 am. I am at that point in my life. I'm still trying to find my purpose. With the help of GOD and my family I know I will be okay. We have made a drastic life change over the last month and I feel it is for the best and good things are to come our way. Being happy is the key to success.

    I believe that what defines success evolves over time. Life is dynamic and change is inevitable; this is a good thing. Success at age 25, for me, was getting into med school. Success at age 44 would be to soon turn a passion into a second career, increase focus on relationships, and secure retirement. I believe it all depends on the time/stage in life.

    Everything Anonymous said at 8:57am starting here, minus the "dancer" part! lol:
    ""Everything happens for a reason. I am less focused on how much money I am making, just as long as my bills are paid and I am able to enjoy life. There is no use in making alot of money, if you are unable to enjoy it being stuck at work or "on-call" all the time…
    So to me, success is knowing your purpose, living your purpose, and being happy… whatever that may be.
    I feel blessed to have finally discovered what my purpose on the earth is: wife, mother, daughter, sister, entreprenuer, dancer, senior advocate.
    My career revolves around my life and not the other way around.
    I am living a much more simplified life, and I am successful. I am happy and at peace. :-)""

    She has said it all and I feel that 100%!

    My definition of success has drastically changed over the years. To me, success is living your purpose and being happy. Period.

    "Materialism" does not matter to me as much anymore. I use to work a high paying job, but was stressed out and over-worked most of the time. I was unhappy. I hardly got to spend time with my family or do the things that I love. THe only thing that was holding my sanity was being able to go to church, but when my hours changed and I was mandated to work on Sundays, I left. It wasn't worth it.. I don't care how bad the economy is… my faith, sanity and happiness is not worth a job and money.

    Currently, I am working and making a fraction of what I made before, but I AM SO HAPPY and relieved. It was my choice to leave my last job and I do not at all regret the decision that I made. I am able to go home and leave work at work. No more office drama.

    Everything happens for a reason. I am less focused on how much money I am making, just as long as my bills are paid and I am able to enjoy life. There is no use in making alot of money, if you are unable to enjoy it being stuck at work or "on-call" all the time…

    So to me, success is knowing your purpose, living your purpose, and being happy… whatever that may be.

    I feel blessed to have finally discovered what my purpose on the earth is: wife, mother, daughter, sister, entreprenuer, dancer, senior advocate.

    My career revolves around my life and not the other way around.

    I am living a much more simplified life, and I am successful. I am happy and at peace. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I will willingly and honestly accept the love that my boyfriend and his children shower me with.

    Even though I get stressed and annoyed with work I am truly blessed to have a job that makes a difference in people's lives

    Thank God for His UNLIMITED and UNCONDITIONAL grace and mercy….
