Positive Affirmations for Divorced Moms
I don’t know where you’re at in your life’s journey. Maybe your marriage is slipping away and divorce seems inevitable. Maybe you’re through the legal part of divorce and are walking through the valley of change that comes with a separated marriage. Wherever you’re at in your journey, I know that it’s more difficult than most of us could ever understand. I do know that positive affirmations work. I’ve been practicing positive affirmations since I was 12-years-old and it works.
How do you practice positive affirmations?
A positive affirmation is more than a good quote. Have you ever heard someone say, “Speak it out into the universe and it’ll come true?” That’s what a positive affirmation is, although it’s not the universe making it happen. It’s you. From TheLawOfAttraction.com, “the definition of affirmations (sometimes called ‘self-affirmations’) is using ‘positive sentences that you repeat to yourself’ to build up self-belief in the subconscious mind.”
Steps to practice positive affirmations:
- Stand in-front of a mirror and look yourself in the eyes.
- Say your affirmation out loud three to five times.
- Take your time and think about the words you’re saying.
- When you’re done, take some deep breathes and look at yourself squarely in the the eyes again.
Sure, this may feel awkward but I promise it works. Your mind is a powerful thing, trust the process.
