I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

An affirmation a day……

on January 14, 2013

#1 cupWe’ve all heard the expression, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, which is good advice although it would take a lot more than an apple to keep you healthy.   Well how about a new expression, an affirmation a day keeps the negativity away?

When was the last time that you said something positive about yourself?   Was it today, yesterday, last week, last year, never?

When other people complement us or give us a pat on the back, it makes us feel really good.  When we can compliment ourselves or pat ourselves on the back, it makes us feel even better because we actually value what we say to ourselves more than what others say.

Every day, we should tell ourselves what a great person we are.   By starting each day with positive statements, we fill up our minds with positive energy which gets us ready to face the day’s challenges.   Saying positive affirmations will reduce stress, get rid of negative thoughts and build our esteem.

Try to think of some positive affirmations and say them every day until they become routine.   Here is an affirmation done in a poem style by Louise Hay.


Deep at the centre of my being there is an infinite well of love.

I now allow this love to flow to the surface.

It fills my heart, my body, my mind, my consciousness, my very being, and radiates out from me in all directions and returns to me multiplied.

The more love I use and give, the more I have to give, the supply is endless.

The use of love makes me feel good; it is an expression of my inner joy.

Yes, I love myself, therefore I take loving care of my body.

I lovingly feed it nourishing food and beverages.

I lovingly groom it and dress it and my body lovingly responds to me with vibrant health and energy.

I love myself, therefore I provide for myself a comfortable home, one that fills all my needs and is a pleasure to be in.

I fill the rooms with the vibration of love so that all who enter, myself included, will feel this love and be nourished by it.

I love myself, therefore I work at a job that I truly enjoy doing, one that uses all my talents and abilities, working with and for people that I love and love me, and earning a good income.

I love myself, therefore, I behave in a loving way to all people for I know that which I give out returns to me multiplied.

I only attract loving people in my world for they are a mirror of what I am.

I love myself, therefore I forgive and totally release the past and all past experiences and I am free.

I love myself, therefore I love totally in the now, experiencing each moment as good and knowing that my future is bright, and joyous and secure, for I am a beloved child of the universe and the universe lovingly takes care of me now and forever more.

And so it is.
Louise L. Hay

    I rarely say anything positive about myself and when someone praises I usually mark it as sarcasm or just plain sweet talk. No wonder I always feel negative most of the time. I should really take your advice. Thank you.

      Try to be positive about yourself. We ALL have great qualities that we often don’t see in ourselves. I used to think negative things about myself too, but I keep telling myself that I’m great. Keep saying good things about yourself, every day, all day long until you believe them. Positive breeds positive. Don’t let anyone’s negativity bring you down, including your own!
