Clues for Writing and Using Affirmations

  • I have no duty to be perfect.
  • I always have options.
  • I am not my mistakes.
  • This is a learning experience.
  • Let my spirit be filled with the melody of joy.  
  • I embrace detours; they take me to undiscovered places.
  • If I listen closely, I will hear the sweet sound of human interaction. 
  • I am sick, I am sexy, I am sixty-ish; I am a scud missile; don't mess with me.
  • I will choose my words well and create a voice for the benefit of others.

I can...  

I try...

I will...

  • Keep them short and easy to remember.
  • Keep your favorite affirmations written where you can see them frequently.
  • Personalize them with words such as, I, my, me.
  • Make the positive with words like, will, can, do, smile, thank. forgive.
  • Put motion to them with verbs, create, give, follow, endeavor, try.
  • Commit yourself to one affirmation at a time.
  • Write or read and affirmation four times a day, EVERY DAY.
