3 Things To Keep In Mind Before You Start Writing Affirmations

3 Things To Keep In Mind Before You Start Writing Affirmations

| Kahdija Imari

I've been writing affirmations for a year and a half now, and I have realized that I have a formula that leads me to successfully write them. Here's 3 things you need to know and also agree to before starting to write affirmations.

I've been writing affirmations for a year and a half now, and I have realized that I have a formula that leads me to successfully write them. I'm going to be sharing these tips with you, starting today.

Here's 3 things you need to know and also agree to before starting to write affirmations...

. . .

1. You can live an amazing life

If you don't believe you can be better and do better, will you ever be better or do better?

Self-belief is a must. And I'm not saying you need to have loads of it, but you do need to have at least a speck belief or a glimmer of hope for yourself and how would ike your life to turn out.

Repeat after me, "I believe that some part of my childhood dreams can become my reality and I am going to do what I can to make it so."

2. You need to be vulnerable and transparent with yourself

If you start writing affirmations that are talking aabout things that you doon't even want for your life, it's going to be a problem when those things begin to actually happen for you... Why? Because you didn't really want them!

So, why not be honest with yourself about what you really want out of this life? How does the life you're currently living differ from the life you'd like to be living? How much detail can you describe about it?

Another reason you're going to need to be honest with yourself on your affirmation writing journey, is because you can't heal if you don't first reveal.

One of the first things a doctor or nurse does when they get a patient with a stab wound, is remove the clothing surrounding the wounded area. If they were to leave the clothing on, it may get in the way of everything they have to do. A piece of cloth may get trapped in the patient's body when the 'freshly cleaned' wound is being sewn or stappled shut. This would make the wound apear to be clean, but the fact is that something is still inside that will irritate this area and possibly cause more harm. Maybe the wound won't heal correctly, maybe thee wound takes twice as long to heal, or maybe the skin closes atop of the wound but an infection starts to form beneath. 

Why put yourself through the elongated pain and suffering when you can learn how to get vulnerable and transparent with yourself to start resolving the situation for once and for all? 

Repeat after me, "I am willing to reveal my truest self to myself; my flaws, my pains, my joys, and my gains... becase I want to see me and be me."

3. You are begining an intentional self care routine

The affirmations I'm going to teach you how to write are not going to be easily written with little thought and little effort. It took me hours and hours of time to write all the affirmations I shared on my Instagram page in 2021.

I'm not gooing to teach yoou what I didn't do. So that means you need to be ready to put in work.. and that means getting intentional.

Just in case you need a quick refresher on what intentional is... Google defines intentional as "something done on purpose; deliberately."

When you make sure something happens as close as possible to how you wanted it to happens, you were deliberate, calculated, and intentional. And if you've ever done this before, you already know this is more difficult to do than allowing what ever comes your way to happen as it may. 

So, repeat after me, "I am commited to being intentional about my self care because I value how I care for me."

. . .

I hope you've found these three things challenging but also interesting enough to commit to doing them. And I hope to see you shining bright one day soon while on your journey of writing affirmations for yourself.  

Your self care awaits,
