“If we tend to be self-centered, selfish, and withholding towards others, our relationships are likely to be unsatisfying and unsustainable. We might affirm and remind ourselves throughout the day to be generous of spirit, to be of service to others, and to share our blessing the best we can.”

- Walter Jacobsen



These are something that I’ve only just really started bringing into my life. I’ve always thought them to be kind of weird – I mean why would you stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself positive things over and over again? It just didn’t make sense to me.


But I found it to be an incredibly powerful thing! Saying things to yourself ultimately gives you your opinion of yourself. So why not make those things positive? And give yourself every chance there is to be as amazing as you can be?


So what exactly are affirmations? If you headed into Pinterest right now and just typed in the word ‘Affirmations’, you would come up with a bunch of gorgeous little images like the ones below

They’re always said in a positive light; in the first person (duh, you’re the one saying it!); have some sort of emotional part to them; and are always written in the present tense. Some of my favourite ones that I like to use regularly are –


My happiness comes from my own accomplishments, and all my blessings.

I am so courageous, I always stand up for myself.

My habits are always positive, and bring me joy.

I am worthy of respect. I am worthy of love. I am worthy of healing. I am worthy of peace.


But my ultimate favourite that I say more than anything is –


I am happy. I am healthy. I am loved.


It encompasses everything about my life that I want to have. My happiness, my health, and the love that I want to feel from my family and friends.


It’s been really interesting to realize that by acting on the belief that these affirmations are definitely true, and that I’m feeling the way that I want to because of them, they’re actually coming to pass. So if I can try to get that to make a bit more sense!! By believing without a doubt that I am happy, I am healthy, and I am loved, I’m actually taking part in activities that help to make me happy. I’m being more watchful of the things that I’m eating, and how much physical exercise I’m doing. And I’m becoming more comfortable and confident in the fact that I am an incredible person and people are genuinely interested in me and what I have to say.


There is a psychiatrist and author by the name of Walter Jacobsen who talks about self-affirmations in relationships. I can’t really think of a better way to finish this post so I’m just going make it the ending!!
