Words of Affirmation
For those of you who have read the book, “The Five Love Languages,” by Gary D. Chapman you have heard of this phrase before. It is basically when you are affirming your spouse of your love and or affection in the form of words.
I want us to start using words of affirmation on ourselves. We need to start thinking positively about ourselves no matter what the circumstances are! I feel like so many people are too hard on themselves (I know I am one of these people a lot of the time). We need to stop thinking negatively about ourselves and press on towards positive thoughts.
God created us in His image, and there are so many reasons why we are here and in this life that He gave us. We need to stop thinking the thoughts of, “I am so fat,” and “no one will ever like me,” and start thinking we are beautiful and that if someone doesn’t like us it is his/her loss.
There is a big difference between trying to better ourselves and just beating ourselves up over things we are working on. No one will ever be perfect and that is OKAY! We aren’t supposed to be or we wouldn’t need Jesus.
So lets make a pact today that we will choose positive thoughts and speak positive words about ourselves. I think you will be surprised at how life changing thinking positively about yourself can be!
Try writing down 3 positive things about yourself, and keep them close to you. You can use the graphic and fill it in if you would like:) When you are feel the “negativity” creep up into your life, then please read these out loud to yourself. Everyone is amazing, and it makes me sad to think that so many people don’t see that in themselves.
What are 3 positive things about you? I would love to hear them!
