I wrote this blog post sometime last year. I wrote it for my old site, but the sentiment rings true today. What we say to ourselves matter. Until we are in the position to say positive things without prompting, this is a step that can help take us there! I hope you can use this in your journey – and change the way you talk to yourself!
So here’s the deal.. I have to talk to myself daily. Not just reminders of my to dos, but I have to talk myself up daily. I have to remind myself of my value and my worth. Every. Single. Day.
And while I’d love to tell you that after a year you don’t have to actually say it anymore, and maybe it will work that way for you, but it hasn’t for me. What I say changes depending on my season, but the need to say something to myself hasn’t changed at all.
One of the little things I do to remind myself to speak positivity is to put Post It notes on my mirrors. All of them. My bathroom mirror, the
I have 3 notes on my mirrors at all times, but I have 6 categories they fall into. It works for everyone, no matter of age or gender! I even leave Post It’s for my husband. So he can see what I see when he looks in the mirror.
Here are my 6 Post It
Must Haves for your Mirror :
1. What is your number one insecurity about your appearance? Now turn that into a positive.
2. What is something you have been dreaming of? Now make it a reality.
3. What holds you back? Now make it something that can propel you.
4. What is something you’ve been working toward? Write a statement as if it has already happened.
5. Your Weekly Goal.
6. Your Word of the Year.
The truth is the words we say in our heads to ourselves matter. And when we look in the mirror and say negative things, it changes us. It changes our confidence level, it changes our mood, it changes our behavior. But if we can remind ourselves to be positive, by leaving notes on the mirror we can change the voice we speak to ourselves in.
When we change the way we speak to ourselves, when we speak with kindness and positivity it changes our life. It changes our relationships. It changes our outlook. It changes our world.
