Hola Chicas!

Was it just me, or were last week’s Affirmation posts empowering?! I thought it’d be a great idea to keep it going… kinda like we do the Natural Hair Compliments post, just more frequent.

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!

My Affirmations for 7/1/10:

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

-I will be ready when baby comes.

-I am beautiful and healthy.

-I am strong.

-I am happy and loved.

Hi, Nikki! I really enjoyed your post about affirmations. I came across this short clip several weeks back and I LOVE it! I particularly love when she shouts out, “I love my hair”! I hope you’ll enjoy – I’ve watched several times and I’m always fired up as a result.

Later Gators,
Nik
