THE CHALLENGE OF SPEAKING LIFE INTO OUR LIVES…

speaking life

As the bible says in Proverbs 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” If it is one thing I want to get right this year, it is staying positive throughout every situation. It doesn’t help to make matters worse with negative words/thoughts when you’re already sad from something gone wrong or a mistake. It just doesn’t help it! This drives one straight to bad mental health lane and y’all know nothing good goes well in that lane.

This year I’m challenging all of us to speak life into our lives. Even when things are not going well, speak life in that situation. This doesn’t mean you are in denial. It means you’re choosing to stay positive and see beyond. Speaking life into our lives will challenge us, but the end result is amazing. We can improve our lives with our thoughts and words.

Words of affirmation is the way forward. It is about speaking positive things into your life. The mind is such a complex thing, but one thing is for sure. The more positive things you feed it, the mind believes it and radiates with positivity. We’ve the power to choose our thoughts and instruct our brain. This really boost your confidence. It is very important that your words of affirmation are in the present tense. Below are some simple, but effective words of affirmations that I believe are necessary for our everyday life. I’ve started speaking this into my life and I love the feeling that it gives my soul. So with that said, I’m challenging you all to do the same every day. Take few minutes after waking up to do this or before stepping out of your door, recite this to yourself with enthusiasm.

Any thoughts on today’s motivational Monday challenge? Do you accept the challenge?

Words of Affirmation

Have a blessed week Beauties!

    This is so true my lovely! Even when things aren’t going well, we can keep positive to work through it and keep upbeat. It doesn’t mean we’re in denial, it’s standing strong in the face of trial!! Super post 🙂 Have a wonderful week x

    This is so true. It’s standing tall in the face of trials, just because things aren’t the way we’d like them to be, doesn’t mean it won’t get better. Super post lovely, have a great week x

    I agree with you there. I find that whenever things don’t go well in my life, if I keep a positive attitude towards things, they tend to work out in the end. On the other hand, if I go in with a bad attitude to begin with, it ends up being a catastrophe. It’s all about manifesting what you want in life right?

    Sometimes when I’ve had a bad day or week, I try to just let go and trust in God. We really do need to compare less and love ourselves more!

    This is a much needed post in rather dark times. I do my best to be positive but admit it is a battle. I have a lot on my plate which I never speak of on my blog. I have not had an easy life that is for sure. I do meditate. And when I do I do positive affirmations so a least I do get a bit of break when I am meditating.

      Couldn’t agree more with you Allie. Yes it is a battle, for me as well. I understand and I think most of us can relate.
      Good to hear that. I’ve been practising medication too, but my mind too busy roaming around. Ha!!

    These are great affirmations to start your day! it’s so true too, we can change how we react to situations and try to see the positives in things. It doesn’t make the situation easier always, but it does give us hope that things aren’t all bad! 🙂

    Hope that your week is going well! I’ve posted a new outfit linkup on my blog if you want to check it out 🙂

    Affirmations are powerful tools. I find repeating them whilst looking into a mirror even more effective, especially on days when the negative are more powerful than positive

    This post is so encouraging and uplifting, thank you for the stunning vibrancy of positivity and goodwill gorgeous goddess! Definitely needed to read this today, and it’s funny as last night I practised some affirmations and made a vow that I need to keep this up as a daily occurrence, especially as my mind can more often than not be drawn into negative territory. Being more positive and speaking life into our lives is the sure fire way to go in 2019! ♥︎
