Have you ever heard the phrase "The Power of Positive Thinking!"? Well, that is basically what affirmations are. You give "power" to the thoughts that you think. If you are constantly putting yourself down then you will always think that you are not good enough. "I hate my stomach." "I am so fat." "I wish I looked like her." I could go on for hours....
Here are some of my favorite affirmations. I am going to start saying them to myself on a more regular basis and ESPECIALLY after I say something negative about myself. Counter the negative with a positive.
