28-Days of Self-Love (Day 23 Self-Talk Matters)

“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”―Buddha

Never underestimate the power of your thoughts. Have you ever noticed on days when you are rushing to work, and you misplace your car keys or cannot find your purse, that everything from that point on goes wrong? This leaves you saying, “I had a crappy day, absolutely everything went wrong!”

Part of the reason this happens is that once you start going down the rabbit hole, you automatically believe the rest of your day will also go wrong. Listen to your thoughts. You look at the clock and think about what your boss will say when you are late again. Anxiety starts to rise. Then one thing after the other does go wrong. You are in an unwanted pattern of negative thought and negative feelings.

Or how about when you tell your friends over and over that you will never find your soul- mate…magically he never appears. Gee I wonder why? Your thoughts carry power and the words you say to others do also. If you want to create something in your life, such as a better job or more money, first start by believing. Act as if you already have it or at least that it is on the way.

Believe it yourself by using positive self-talk. In other words empower yourself with positive affirmations. Affirmations are words you say over and over to yourself until your subconscious believes it…make it so!

Example of Positive Affirmations:

  • I am beautiful.
  • I am worthy.
  • My life matters.
  • I am living in abundance.
  • Money flows to me easily.
  • I am having a fabulous day.
  • I fill myself with love.
  • I open my heart to new love.
  • My kind and handsome soul-mate is on his way soon!
  • I am safe.
  • I have more than I need. (so I can share with others)
  • Opportunities flow to me now.
  • I love my career.
  • My salary doubles each year.
  • (Looking in the mirror) I love you!

On and on! Make up your own affirmations. Make them short because the subconscious does not reason. Your subconscious works like a computer, facts in facts out! What you tell yourself about you and your life does matter. Begin today to live in the positive. Believe in YOU!

Tell yourself how much you love you…YES, self-love matters!
