Great afternoon, happy new year. I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon. Affirmations are one of my favorite things to say. Here’s how to define affirmation. Affirmation is a declaration or indication that is something is true (Affirmation, n. d). When Pastor D told us to recite an affirmation during Sunday School, I started doing so. I have been speaking affirmations every morning after my devotion time since then. Confidence, believing in myself, understanding who I am, believing what God says about me, and not believing what the world says about me are some of the benefits I gain from speaking affirmations.
When you speak affirmations, you state something true about yourself, believe in yourself, and encourage yourself. You have to keep yourself optimistic, inspired, and encouraged in a world that likes to throw shade, negativity, and discouragement at you. Start speaking affirmations and continue to repeat the affirmations until you believe them, and they become a part of you. Once you have done that, you won’t care about what the rest of the world thinks of you. You can find many affirmations online. Here is one to get you started.
I am successful (Bokhari, 2020).
I am confident (Bokhari, 2020).
I am powerful (Bokhari, 2020).
I am strong (Bokhari, 2020).
I am getting better and better every day (Bokhari, 2020).
