I kept my goals for 2015 simple: start more dance parties and state my affirmations daily.
This article is what inspired my need for more dance in my life. Enough said.
The affirmations came about in lieu of resolutions because it felt more fulfilling, more intrinsically gratifying, less demanding.
Affirmations have been big part of my life for many years. I find them so helpful in changing my mindset and reminding me of what I’m worthy of. I tend to create them in times of light and confidence and turn to them in times of darkness and despair.
There are so many great affirmation guides out there—I wrote these with what spoke to me at the time: the general gist of my intentions for the new year, a willingness to recognize the good in what I already have and feel, and a knowing of where I want to allow myself to be.
I hope this article inspires you to write your own affirmations! This is the first time I have done so and it felt very beautiful and natural to do. If any of them really resonate, please feel free to copy them into your journal or print this off and have it for whenever you like or need. Enjoy!
