I wanted to share a powerful affirmation I was given during a time in my life when I had almost given up. I’m not exactly sure who wrote this affirmation but I am taking absolutely no credit for this post. A lovely woman who created a group called Becoming a Butterfly handed this affirmation to a small group of women from different walks of life looking to break unhealthy thinking patterns and reclaim their lives. I took this affirmation and recorded myself reciting it, as I know how powerful it is to hear yourself claim your freedom over strongholds in your life. Every now and then I play it to re-affirm my self-worth or just to give myself an extra boost of encouragement in the morning. Feel free to improvise to fit your needs.

I have the courage to:

Get excited about life, enjoy giving and receiving love

Face and transform my fears, Ask for help and support when I need it

Spring free from the Superwoman trap

Trust myself, Befriend myself

Complete Unfinished Business

Realize that I have emotional and practical rights

Talk as nicely to myself as I do to my plants

Communicate lovingly with communication as my goal

Honor my own needs

Give myself credit for my accomplishments

Love the little girl within me

Overcome my addiction to approval

Grant myself permission to play

Quit being a responsibility sponge

Feel ALL of my feelings and act upon them accordingly

Nurture others because I want to and not because I have to

Choose what is right for me

Insist on being paid fairly for what I do

Get limits and boundaries and stick to them

Say “yes” when I really mean it

Have realistic expectations (stronghold alert)

Take risk and except change and grow through those changes

Be totally honest with myself

Correct erroneous beliefs and assumptions

Respect my vulnerabilities

Heal old and current wounds

Savor the mystery of the Spirit

Wave goodbye to guilt

Plant “flower” thoughts and “weed” (negative) thoughts in my mind

Treat myself with respect and teach others to do the same

Fill my own cup first then nourish others with the overflow

Own my excellence

Plan for the future but live in the present

Value my intuition and wisdom

Know that I am lovable

Develop healthy, supportive relationships

Make forgiveness a priority and

Accept myself just as I am now
