SUNDAY AFFIRMATIONS OVERLOAD

Can_will

Hey Beautiful,

I was brainstorming and praying for guidance for this Sunday’s topic and was curious of when and how I started posting the Sunday Affirmations.  I looked back over the history of blog posts and found that I started them last June.  There are several new blog subscribers so I thought I would explain what it’s all about and why I chose Sunday to post affirmations. 

Last year, I started noticing a few of my girlfriends– who have small children– venting every Sunday night at how exhausted they were and they hated to start the week totally frazzled and depleted.  We should be refueled and raring to go on Monday morning, right?!  With a few small adjustments, I think we can all feel energized and at peace as we approach the end of the weekend and get prepared for the week.  By setting boundaries, taking “me time”, declining social invitations (and not feeling guilty about it), make a ‘must do’ list and saying positive affirmations– we set our mind and attitude toward having a successful week instead of dreading Monday.  I had fun reading through some of the old affirmations and decided to create a long inspiring list of ones that I need to REAFFIRM and thought you might as well!

THIS WEEK I WILL……

  • Follow my bliss.
  • Smile more.
  • Love + Laugh harder.
  • Embrace my own unique beauty + style.
  • Celebrate my life instead of complain about it.
  • Read a spiritually rich book.
  • Count my blessings every single day.
  • Put my shoulders back, walk tall + shine my light!
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Pamper myself.
  • Walk in Grace + Peace, no matter what grouch crosses my path.
  • Love my body by getting enough exercise.
  • Shut up my Negative Nellie.
  • Wear my invisible crown because I am a Queen!
  • Try something new…new food, new route to work, new bold accessory.
  • Honor the healthy boundaries I’ve set.
  • Not leave the house w/o my best accessory….my beautiful smile.
  • Be courageous no matter how “wimpy” I may feel.
  • Eat foods rich in antioxidants because my body is a temple.
  • Practice more patience.
  • Help others without expecting anything in return.
  • See myself as healthy, whole, happy and HOT.
  • Send a “just because” hand written note to a dear friend.
  • Take time to decompress.
  • Compliment myself once a day.
  • Embrace that quirk about myself that I’ve always hated.
  • Remove “I’m worried that_” from my vocab.
  • Make more time for girltime.
  • Ignore catty women.  They’re just insecure…poor things.
  • Snack on blueberries + almonds instead of cheese nips + skittles.
  • CELEBRATE ME!
  • Turn my back on mediocrity.
  • Be fabulous not frazzled.
  • Not base my identity on how I look, what I wear or own. I am a Child of God!
  • Book a spa day + massage because I deserve it.
  • Check something fun off my bucketlist.
  • Focus on being healthy instead of the number on the scale.
  • Surround myself with other women of excellence.
  • Listen to a friend in need w/o having to “one up” her story.
  • Be integrity driven, not emotionally driven.
  • Believe in myself more than ever.
  • Choose the side salad instead of the fries.
  • Listen to my gut + stop ignoring it.
  • Start + end each day with a prayer of gratitude.
  • Have more fun w/ fashion + wear a flirty dress.
  • Walk in L-O-V-E not fear.
  • Surrender, take a deep breath and then exhale.
  • NEVER GIVE UP!
  • Step into my greatness…even if it’s one baby step in that direction.
  • Give myself a pat on the back instead of beating myself up.
  • Attend a movie, concert or seminar that inspires me.
  • Lift light weights regularly. It helps my bone density!
  • Go big + stop playing rinky-dink.
  • RADIATE!

I don’t know about you, but I’m totally amped up for the week ahead after reading that list! WooHoo!

YOU ARE BLESSED {Sunday Eve Affirmations}

Hey Style + Spirit Sistas!

blessed

Christmas is in just a few days and I’m sure you are all having a blast with family and friends this weekend so I am keeping it super short and sweet today!  I simply want you all to remember in the coming week that YOU ARE BLESSED!  Let’s define “blessed”…

bless·ed adjective: 1. Worthy of adoration. 2. Divinely or supremely favored; fortunate:  (i.e. to be blessed with a strong, healthy body; blessed with an ability to find friends. 3. Blissfully happy or contented.

Despite how difficult the past year was for you or perhaps you are in a challenging situation right now, you are still blessed!  When we focus on how blessed we are, the difficulties of life seem much smaller.

THIS WEEK I WILL……

  1. Be grateful and count my many blessings.
  2. Ignore my problems and focus on how blessed I am.
  3. Stop complaining about the things I don’t have.
  4. Shower myself with adoration instead of waiting for someone to do it for me.
  5. Remember…I AM WORTHY!
  6. Pamper myself with a foot massage or facial.
  7. Rock a bit of bling everyday.
  8. Be a blessing to others.
  9. Stop neglecting my needs.
  10. Indulge in my fave holiday treats without beating myself up afterwards.
  11. Stop for a moment, during the hustle + bustle and take in the beauty of the season, be totally present, take a deep breath and say to myself…YOU ARE BLESSED!

PEACE & COMFORT {Sunday Affirmations}

angel_cross

My Sistas,

How are you?  I always seek guidance for the perfect and timely inspiration to share on the Sunday blog post.  But today, with the heartbreak we are all feeling from Friday’s devastation, all I am coming up with is the need to express my love for all of you and how we need to continue joining together in prayer.  I know we are being bombarded and overwhelmed with the media coverage so I will keep it short and sweet.  This week’s affirmations will be a bit different.  In the coming week, let’s switch our focus from specific “things and goals” we want to affirm to more focus on PRAYER.  I am very open about my belief in the Power of Prayer and have seen it’s remarkable effect on my life.  Will you join me?

Pray for our loved ones.

Pray for the families in Connecticut.

Pray for our nation. 

Pray for our Government officials.

Pray for our Spiritual leaders.

Pray for our educators. 

Simply…..PRAY. 

Prayer immediately connects us to our Creator and wraps us like a warm blanket with peace and comfort.  Many of you are Mother’s and I can only imagine the rollercoaster of emotions you are feeling from anger, confusion, disgust, sadness and fear.   Again, simply pray and ask God for peace that passes ALL understanding.   I had to share this eloquent prayer written by Marianne Williamson:

Dear God,
We come to You with broken hearts,
surrendering the catastrophe that has occurred today in Connecticut.

We cannot comprehend the darkness that led to this,
or the suffering of those who have loved and lost.
They are both too big.

But in You, dear God, there are Answers we cannot surmise and Light we cannot summon by ourselves.
We present to you our brokenness, and the horror and pain of those who grieve.

May those who died find joy in the immortal realms.
May those who mourn them be comforted in this hour of their agony.

And may our prayers and actions be guided by You, dear God, to create a world where this occurs no more.
Amen
