I can distinctly remember sitting in my 7th grade science class rewriting one sentence over and over again: when I grow up I will be an actress (yes, these were the days when I aspired to be Katie Holmes…thankfully I dodged that bullet). The point of this assignment was to instill in us that if you tell yourself you can accomplish something, you’ll do it. The trick, however, is frequency and positivity.
Positive affirmations are just another way of describing positive self-talk. Often, these serve as daily reminders for why we do what we do. Thus, it is no wonder so many people use these positive affirmations to motivate and inspire them to achieve their goals-whatever they may be. Today I’m going to share with you one of my favorite positive affirmations. Maybe it’s the field I’m in, the fact that I’m surrounded by older adults on a daily bases, or the simple humor that makes this my favorite positive affirmation. Either way, I found one that works for me. So, here’s my question for you: what’s your favorite positive affirmation? Leave a comment and let me know!
