10 Affirmations to Kickstart Yourself

sq 266I woke up feeling a bit down.

But I’m choosing not to stay that way. Instead, I’m going to turn the day around, and make my life a better place to be always.


When I recognized I needed to change my focus today, I unearthed some positive affirmations I formulate years ago to help me through a rough patch, and create a more powerful, positive me. It worked then, and it will work again today.

I’m going to use the affirmations to get me through the rough patch this minute; it I will transform into a pool of positivity in the next few hours. You can do the same thing anytime you want.

To help you, I’m sharing my affirmations, thus using my energy to produce a ripple effect and cause positivity in you and others around the world.

What better way to make a difference!?

You can choose one, two, any, or all of the affirmations below, they are my gift to you today. Pick one that fits and make it your own, or, create some of your own and share them with others.

Happy affirming!
