New Year’s Affirmations

Dad

 

I like doing affirmations for New Year’s.  I used to do resolutions, but like most people, I had a hard time keeping to them.  I think the last statistics I read said that 51% of the population makes resolutions and of that only 18% of that group actually keeps them.

I like affirmations because they focus on the positive things in life.

I mean, when you do a resolution, it usually is based on some perceived flaw (whether real or imaginary) that you need to “fix.” It’s a negative thought. And negative thoughts are not the best way to build yourself up.

When I tell myself something positive, I bloom inside.  I feel strong and powerful, and able to tackle anything. Those thoughts are the ones that can make mountains really move.

Here are my affirmations for this New Years.

  • Who I am, right now, is enough.
  • I make great choices.
  • I have all I need, in abundance.
  • I am creative.
  • I am loving.
  • I am strong.
  • I am kind.
  • I am grateful for this life I have.
  • My heart is open.

What I love about these statements is that there are no expectations.  There is nothing I will fail at.  These are reminders of the person I am.

Over the next few posts, I’ll talk more about my affirmations and why I chose those ones, this year.

What would you choose, and why? Would you do several statements? Or perhaps just choose a single, powerful one?

 

Have a wonderful and joyful New Year.
