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 MSNBC.com and thought the CN.com community might like it. It’s about the destructiveness of “Fat Talk” and a blog aimed and ending “Fat Talk” and negative affirmations called OperationBeautiful.com. You can find the MSNBC.com 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 [email protected] using Self-Esteem as the subject line.
