Positive Affirmation Challenge

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 46

I am a self-contained oasis of peace.

For me, being a self-contained oasis of peace does not imply floating in a bubble. It means accepting myself to the core of my being.  It means being able to forgive myself for my mistakes. It means being totally fine with who I am and not struggling to become another person that I am not even though I also realistically evaluate things that I need to improve upon. It means NO Shame. None!Image result for image quotes about inner peace

Being at peace doesn’t mean being perfect or detached and does not imply that all that needs to be done has been done. It’s striving to find balance, understanding my dreams, desires, beliefs, values, and goals and aligning them. It means walking my path with no apologies, hesitation or second-guessing. Being at peace is realizing that some things just don’t matter and letting them go.

Being at peace with myself is understanding that not everyone will like me and that I may not like them as well, but having enough perspective to treat everyone with respect.

I am not constantly high on life. I have many bad days when I feel angry at myself or disappointed with my choices. I have low moments when depression and PTSD weigh me down, but even in the midst of chaos, there’s a calmness of spirit.

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 45

I am who I am for a beautiful reason. I am not a mistake. My experiences: the good, the bad and the downright ugly all culminate to shape me into this unique and awesome human made in God’s image.

Every single one of us has had varied experiences that have a significant effect on who we are. The most important aspect of any experience is not so much in the experience itself but in the meaning that we assign to these experiences. What stories do we inadvertently tell ourselves based off these experiences? These underlined internal stories shape us, shape our future decisions and how we interact with others.

Some allow their ugly experiences to rule over how they perceive themselves for the rest of their lives. A lot of times this internal perception reads ‘I am not good enough,’ I’m not beautiful enough, I’m less than.’  This is a huge disservice to yourself. You should never forget that one or two sorry experiences don’t detract from the beautiful person that you are.

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it – and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again – and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. ~Mark Twain

Train That Inner Voice…

When we train our inner critic, we become our inner coach. Jacqueline

Self-image, reflection

Most times we are our own worst critics, that it takes extra effort to find the good parts of ourselves. We worry that they are not good enough. We think that they need to achieve more to be enough. We think we are way behind our contemporaries. We think that we have failed. We think that we could have done better, we think that we shouldn’t have done certain things – forgetting that the decision that we took at that time was probably the best decision we could have taken at that point in time. The list of what your inner critic has to offer is bottomless and focusing on these negative criticisms simply builds into your psyche.

Taking charge of your inner critic automatically creates better grounds to rise above certain self-limiting thoughts and you enable your mind to suggest pragmatic steps to do better than you’ve done in the past. Always remember that talking yourself down only succeeds in keeping you down. I am not in anyway suggesting that your shoulders should get so high on hubris, but putting yourself down constantly is not humility in any way. For every thought of criticism, find thoughts of affirmation and empowerment that deflates it.

Focus on finding the good in yourself and others each day, because as you focus less on finding all the faults in the world around you, you’ll become more appreciative, more optimistic and your possibilities grow.
