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 8/26/10:

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

-I am blessed with a supportive group of family members and friends that have been here with me this entire month.

-I am successful and stable.

-I am beautiful.

-I am happy and loved.

I came across an article on and thought the community might like it. It’s about the destructiveness of “Fat Talk” and a blog aimed and ending “Fat Talk” and negative affirmations called You can find the article here. Both sites give insight into why we punish ourselves with negative affirmations as well as how to end the self destruction. I just thought it was awesome and wanted to share. Take care!


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!

    This is right on time! Thank you CurlyNikki for posting this! Thank you for the links, KinkyShea! I will definitely check them out. I just wrote about this on my blog, Big Diva Headquarters. My last post was about how negative thoughts keep us from succeeding. Positivity is just so important for mental well being and overall health. It should not be overlooked.

    I affirm every day that I am health. I am joy. I am wealth. I am abundance. I am beauty. I am prosperity. I am magnetic. I am beloved. I am blessed. Gratitude is another great way to start the day. I take a moment to say what I am grateful for about my entire body, even my big belly even though I am working to lose it. :-) It has really worked wonders on helping me appreciate my body, where it is right now.

    -College is not a burden but a stepping stone to your future success.
    -You do care about your family and just need to keep in contact more.
    -It's not too late, and you WILL find a spot in English 96.

    -You are beautiful in every shape or form…big, small, long hair, short hair, nice clothes, old clothes. These things decorate the beauty you already have and should not be the soul thing that makes you, YOU.

    -You will also put into action everything you wrote, and will stop making so many negative comments about life.

    I feel much better…lol.

    Oh my goodness… at the risk of sounding odd, i had a dream last night that you delivered in the wee hours of the morning. I pray that when you have your little one, your delivery is swift, safe, and joyful.

    I am a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people. I'm His special treasure. I am salt and light.

    Still no baby?!? That little diva of yours already has a mind of her own!! She's giving you a chance to brace yourself for the task you have at hand of delivering her. Enjoy these last days of having her inside and feeling her movin' – its definitely one of the things I missed the most!!

    Moma Curly Nikki – Have you had that baby yet? I'm checking everyday, not for hair but to see if your little Diva arrived yet!
