As you guys may already know from my last post, I decided to start a “30 day challenge” every month for the next twelve months (If you don’t, it’s OK, read my last post =D). For this month’s round of my “30 day challenges”, I’ve decided to start with 30 days of affirmations. For the next 30 days (25 really), I will start my day with a positive phrase or Focus word and I will share it here with you. Since we are already five days into January, this month will be more like a 25 day challenge, hehe either way, the purpose of this challenge is to take a little time out of my day to bring positive energy into my life. I so hope that this will inspire some readers out there to join me!

Throughout my teenage years and for some of my adult life, I have struggled with self-esteem and breaking out of bad habits and one thing that has really helped me come out of those dark places are daily affirmations. Affirmations are an amazing tool that can help to rewire your thoughts. It can take you from thinking you CANT, to knowing that you CAN. Everyone has negative thoughts, I for one am an expert at negative thinking. We all do it, most times unintentionally, we are human it happens, but using affirmations can help to bring awareness to your negative thoughts and replace those thoughts with something more positive. The goal is to start believing in the positive thoughts more than any negative thoughts your mind can conjure up.

So, I’m sure I can come up with a ton of affirmations on my own but to make this a little easier, I found an awesome list on The Huffington Post with about 35 affirmations that I will be using.

Today’s Affirmation is:

“Creative energy surges through me and leads me to new and brilliant ideas”
