Hi my dear friends!
I wanted to do a follow-up after last week’s blog, as I received a lot of feedback and affirmation that many of you also feel the same overwhelm entering into this new chapter of the pandemic.
I hope you find a sense of relief knowing you’re not alone in feeling this way, and remembering that these massive pivots and shifts in our lives are impactful and oftentimes, overwhelming. I also want to reiterate that we all go through life with unique perspectives and challenges. Which means, don’t compare yourself to others.
Many of you asked for some tools and affirmations to manage the overwhelm that you’re feeling during this time. As we know, the thoughts we think influence our mindset and our emotions, so I always find it beneficial to add in positive affirmations when I’m feeling particularly stressed or anxious. Remember, a positive and a negative thought cannot co-exist in our minds at the same time, and we can consciously choose one thought over the other, it just takes practice!
Our power of choice is a superpower. We can actually redirect our negative, harmful thoughts to useful, positive, helpful thoughts. We are not victims of the thoughts in the mind, we have the control to intercept the thoughts, that in no way serve us.
Here are five affirmations that have been helpful reinforcements for me at this time. I hope they serve you, too!
1. It is safe to honor and trust my needs and desires.
2. I am confident in my choices and decisions.
3. I allow my life to unfold in perfect, divine timing.
4. All is well, I feel at peace.
5. I love my life. I hold great optimism for what is to come.
I would love to hear if you have any affirmations that have been helpful for you! Let me know in the comments!
