5 AFFIRMATIONS TO EMPOWER YOUR EVERYDAY (Even if You’re Allergic to Woo-Woo)


You know when you want to embrace your inner woo-woo, but instead you just feel woo-weird?


Not today, babe!


Perfect for empowering your mornings, (or tucking into your pocket for an afternoon pick-me-up), let your spirit feast on these five affirmations to empower your everyday - EVEN if you’re woo-woo allergic:


I AM INFINITELY CAPABLE.


You is kind, you is smart, you is important, and you is CAPABLE. Everything’s impossible until a unique individual makes it possible. Why shouldn’t that special someone be YOU?


Affirm it:


Today, I will approach every situation with confidence in my capabilities. Even if I have to tweak and try a few new things, I will remain persistent and resilient. Today I will trust that everything I am meant to do will eventually flow through.


I GET TO CHOOSE LOVE IN EVERY MOMENT.


As American spiritual teacher and bestselling author Gary Zukav says, “the choice that frees or imprisons us is the choice of love or fear. Love liberates. Fear imprisons.”


Our keyword there being: choice.


While you may not be able to choose whether the Starbucks barista brings your order on time, you can choose whether you approach each moment through the lens of LOVE - and looking through that lens can change everything.


What does looking through the lens of love look like in real-life?


Let’s think back on our Starbucks barista for a sec.


FEAR would have you seeing the late-latte situation like:


F*CK. I’m going to be late to work and my boss is going to FREAK OUT. This friggin barista..When did it become rocket science to whip up an almond milk latte???


While LOVE would have you looking at the situation like:


Damn, being a barista at Starbucks is def stressful as heck. I’m grateful to grab a coffee here today, and am gonna say THANK YOU super sincerely when the barista brings me my order in hopes it might brighten their day too!


Affirm it:


Today, when I’m faced with the option to react with fear or love, I will choose love, in all circumstances. I know this will be easy for me, because I AM love. If fear tries to creep in at any point today, I’ll look through the lense of love instead.


I CAN HELP SOMEONE ELSE SMILE TODAY.


Dare you to try and say this one without smiling. ;)


One of my go-to pick-me-ups, the above affirmation is almost impossible to say without smiling.


Why?


Because it works to remind you of that ooey-gooey, warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you’re giggling with your best friend, or inspiring a stranger to smile by sharing a compliment with them.


Affirm it:


Even if nothing turns out as I’ve planned today, if I can make ONE person smile (*even via Zoom*), it will be an incredibly beautiful day.


I AM GUIDED.


Often followed by: EVEN when it doesn’t feel like it.


If you sometimes overthink and sit in indecision like me, this will probably be an affirmation you want to tell yourself every morning.


In acknowledging that you are guided, you are also reminding yourself that there is no wrong decision..'Cause, quite simply, ALL roads lead to the place you’re meant to be.


Aka, as Tony Robbins would say, “Life is happening FOR you, not TO you.”


My suggestion?


Set the intention to approach the day like you would a brand new adventure- freshly painted nails poised over the crisp edges of your passport - eagerly awaiting the unknown territories you’re en route to exploring.


Affirm it:


I will approach today like I would a brand new adventure- poised in a power stance awaiting the unknown (even if my nails aren’t all painted and pretty)! Today, I will see challenges for what they are: the curriculum for my elevation.


I AM EXCITED FOR THE ADVENTURES THAT AWAIT ME.


You know the electric sensation that rushes through your body like warm, liquid gold when you’re excited about something?


Think about what your life would be like if you drank that sh*t like Liquid IV.


Just like those salty-sweet electrolytes, science shows us that excitement increases endorphins in our system, which fuel us into a state of revitalized energy and optimism.


As the Queen of optimized adventures, Oprah Winfrey says, “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”


Affirm it:


Today, I will approach every action with excitement and an optimistic mindset. If I ever feel anxious, I will choose excitement instead, and reframe my focus on the infinite possibilities of today’s adventure.



I’m so grateful for the opportunity to adventure alongside you, and hope today's affirmations encourage you to feel that too. <3


XO,


Kendra
