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

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 44

I am filled with enthusiasm. Thoughts of continuous personal development, growth and success make my spirit hum with excitement and joy. 

I have some good news for you. No matter where you are in your career, or in your life, there’s always a chance to start over. Your age is not an excuse and should not be used as a reason to stop you from going after what you want. It is never ever too late to achieve those dreams.

Stay in relentless pursuit of your dreams. Keep working to make them a reality. Don’t allow pessimism and negative self-talk override your possibilities. Remember that time is nothing more than time. Time has no power to determine whether your dreams are possible or not. You, however, have all the power you need to make them come true.

The day I stop chasing my dreams is the day that I die. As I grow older, I realize that I have no plans to stop dreaming and to become everything that I envisaged.

These Beautiful Shared Thoughts Below Make Me Smile:

Rotimi Elijah: Hmm…. Insightful and thoughtful. God is always there for us all.

DancingPalmTrees: I totally agree with you 100%. There are many days when all I can afford to eat are a bagel and some ramen noodles but something is better than nothing therefore I am blessed.

Eugenia: I’ve had my struggles through life but somehow, I’ve always managed to make ends meet. Though I am not very religious, I’ve always felt God’s presence. I feel believing is the first step toward surviving.

PamelaS.Canepa. Writing and Living: Beautiful! A most memorable Bible quote that I hold onto, especially in times of anxiety or worry, is “Be still and know that I am God.” How else could we quiet the mind, and mine certainly needs quieting most days!

DancingPalmTrees: I digress but just want to share this 11 year old Da Vinci of Nigeria.

What About You? Positive Affirmation Day 43

I am content. I may not have all that I want in life right now, but the wonderful thing is that each day my needs are met. For this, I am grateful.

This year has been exceptionally challenging and financially tough on my family. There are days that I simply wonder how to make the ends meet and as a human I do feel grumpy about it when the mood sets in, but the interesting thing is that once I begin to consciously breathe and silently pray about ‘these things’ the cloud of gloom lifts.

The most amazing thing is that at the end of each day, my families basic needs are met in one way or the other. I truly believe in miracles. There are days that God has used total strangers to bless me. Saying that I’m content does not in anyway remove the fact that we’re struggling at the moment, but totally enhances the peaceful ease of mind that ‘He has me and mine covered.’

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 42

I am teaching my mind to cease from focusing on the things that I can’t do, or the limitations that stand in my way of doing them. I just keep showing up to do what needs to be done.

What About You? Affirmation Challenge Day 41

I am convinced that the lines will fall in pleasant places for me.

Innumerable times I fall into a mental state of despair over how things are not happening the way that I planned them. It seems like a dance of three steps forward and ten steps back and I keep wondering if the steps will ever align and if things will roll as I wish, then I catch little glimmers of hope – little blessings that tell me that I’m on the right path even when it doesn’t look like it.

In such times I take deep breaths and the time to appreciate how far I’ve come, knowing that so long as I walk with God, I will surely reach my destination.

What About You? Affirmation Challenge 40

I am relentless and prepared to go the extra miles needed to achieve my goals. 

If achieving our dreams came easy, we all would be on cloud nine. For every dream and ambition that we have, it takes unwavering focus, consistent effort and staunch faith to hang in there even when it seems as if we are swimming upstream. The important thing is not to give up. Keep pushing until something happens.
