How to create positive and inspiring affirmations
I love inspiring words, quotes, phrases, mantras and affirmations. Words can motivate, inspire and keep us on track, especially when we have goals that we are trying to reach. Positive and inspiring affirmations support me in my life and work. I enjoy the simple process of creating them, and they give me comfort, guiding me along my chosen path.
If you are new to affirmation writing and you would like to give it a try, here are a few pointers to get you started. I have also shared the affirmations I have created to guide me in 2018. As with everything I share on my blog, please feel free to take the ideas that resonate with you and leave the rest behind!
Words are powerful
1. Create affirmations that serve you and your journey.
2. Keep them brief, specific and relevant.
3. Be positive by boldly affirming what you want.
4. Use powerful words to give yourself strength and motivation.
5. Use the present tense to support where you are now.
6. Enjoy the writing process!
