Positive Affirmations can be crucial to our happiness and success.
In my opinion, there is nothing more powerful than encouraging and loving words. To build somebody up and attempt to touch their heart is extremely selfless. This is something we should practice as often as we can because it feels incredible. I think it really says something about a person’s character to be able to build somebody up no matter their own circumstances.
I watched a movie recently that really pulled on my heart strings. It’s called The Help, and it’s based around strong southern black women that are caretakers and housekeepers. One of the women looks after a little girl who’s mother isn’t very kind and tries her best to let her know she is loved. Her positive affirmations melted my heart and brought tears to my eyes. They were “you is kind, you is smart, you is important.”
Take that in..
3 short statements that beeline straight to the core of the heart.
Affirmations are not only beneficial to give to others, they are also important to tell yourself. As silly as it may seem, to look in the mirror and talk to yourself sweetly is powerful. We must always love ourselves and know that we are doing the best we can. Even if you can’t bring yourself to literally talk to yourself, at least think it. While you’re walking, driving, about to embark on a new adventure or coming into a scary situation, tell yourself that you’ve got this. That you’re worth something. That you’re special and unique. That people like you, that you’re a good person. I feel positive affirmations can help with anxiety, too. Self doubt is a creeper in the night and it will cling onto any little feeling of weakness you may have. It’s dangerous and YOU don’t need it!
Everybody needs encouragement and everybody loves a compliment.
Be a sweet spirit for people to be around & emit love!!
