The thoughts we choose at the beginning and end of each day are important as they shape our beliefs, feelings, our self image and also our plans for the future.
When we have something on our mind, we tend to consciously and unconsciously look for it throughout the day. If we’re thinking about improving a relationship with a loved one, we may during the week happen to see an interesting title of a book or a magazine article talking about relationships, or we may pass by some chocolates or flowers and think about getting some as a gift for our partner. Someone may even come up and begin talking to you about relationships, as your energy is focused on and attracting what you are thinking and feeling. Also known as the law of attraction, the seeds of information we plant within ourselves, tend to grow in our daily lives.
Here are 17 positive affirmations you can say to yourself at the end of each day that will positively program your mind and feelings to help you create the beautiful life you deserve.
“Today I did a great job.”
However your day went, it’s more than likely you did your best with what you were given. Nobody is perfect, so be proud of what you achieved and accomplished during the day, no matter how small it may seem. Encouraging one’s self is a key factor in staying motivated, and every positive step in the right direction deserves your full acknowledgment.
“I am enough just as I am.”
Self acceptance and feeling good enough is the key to attracting and creating a life that truly is good enough. When we are able to love ourselves enough to say that now, in this present moment, I am good enough, we create feelings of abundance in ourselves, which manifest outside of ourselves as full and rich lives.
“Everything that happened today was for my higher good.”
Whether you had some good or not so good experiences during the day, keep the good things as rewards and the not so good things as lessons learned. Your highest self can use everything each day as a stepping stone towards where you want to go, as long as you’re able to love yourself through it and keep a positive attitude.
“I can do it!”
Believing you can do anything you put your mind to gives a wonderful amount of healthy self-esteem and healthy self-confidence, both of which can help you achieve your goals in life.
“I love myself.”
To feel the feeling of love for one’s self is one of the most healing, healthy and satisfying practices we can engage in. Simply sit for a minute in a quiet space, focus on the feeling of love in your heart, and then bring that feeling of love into all parts of your personality. You will begin to glow with love, and those looking for love or those who also embody love will be attracted to you.
“I’m proud of myself.”
Rather than being your greatest critic, be your own best friend. Be genuinely proud of yourself for all you’ve faced and overcome. Accept everything about yourself, unconditionally, without regrets or apologies.
“I’m in the process of becoming the best version of myself.”
You are a unique and irreplaceable human being. Rather than trying to follow in someone else’s footsteps or to measure up to someone else’s expectations, acknowledge and embrace the beautiful, bright and caring person that you are. Surround yourself with positivity, take care of your health and body, and work each day to grow in a way that resonates within your own heart.
“My word is my power, and I do everything I say I will do.”
Doing what we say we will do is the foundation for building integrity, as well as the foundation for achieving our goals. Begin by honoring small agreements with yourself, and always complete what you say you will. This affirmation works like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes, and eventually you’ll be able to set wonderful goals, and you’ll achieve them each time.
“Mistakes are okay.”
It’s okay to make mistakes in life. It’s how we all learn and grow. Keeping an attitude of okayness rather than criticism regarding our mistakes helps us to stay emotionally open, and enables us to learn from them.
“I don’t sweat the small stuff.”
There’s no point in worrying about every little thing that doesn’t go perfectly each day. By remembering not to get frustrated over little issues, we’re teaching our minds to go through and grow through obstacles and to not get stuck on them.
“I create and am the master of my own reality.”
Remember that you’re the master of your own reality. You’re the only one who gets to choose and to respond to the situations presented in your life. Say this to yourself each night before bedtime, and your mind will begin working on ways you can create the life you really want.
“I am kind to everyone I meet.”
Kindness is important, and it’s important to remember to be kind on both our good days and our not so good days. Remembering to show love through kindness to the people you encounter each day helps to make the world a better place.
“I’m so thankful for everything I have.”
Gratitude is one of the fastest and most beautiful ways to feel good about life. Regardless of what you have, be thankful for it. By learning to appreciate the small things we’ve been given in life, we eventually attract more good things to be grateful for.
“I forgive and let go of all frustrations and negativity.”
If something bothered you during the day, make sure you forgive the person and let it go before you go to sleep. It can take time for the feeling to change, but even repeating this affirmation can help your mind accept the idea of forgiving and letting go, and eventually it will happen and you’ll be at peace.
“I’m grateful for the people in my life who love and support me.”
It feels wonderful to remember our loved ones, and practicing gratitude for them at the end of each day helps to foster and grow feelings of love within ourselves. This positive affirmation helps us grow fond feelings for those wonderful helpers in our lives, and they’ll see and appreciate the bright glow of your love for them.
“I do not judge or criticize anyone.”
Judgment and criticism doesn’t really help another, in fact it usually only wounds them. Love, kindness and gentle words help others, and the only way to inspire good behavior in others is to model good behavior for them by showing them love. Begin by not criticizing yourself, and it will become natural to not judge or criticize others.
“Each day I grow closer to my heart’s true self.”
Your heart has a beautiful plan and idea for your life, as you well know, and simply by focusing your mind with this affirmation to grow in line with it, you’ll empower yourself to create the beautiful and loving life that you’ve always imagined.
