My Daily Positive Affirmations

      10 Comments on My Daily Positive Affirmations

Whenever something bothers me, I keep reminding myself that we cannot control people’s actions, attitudes and even events. I label it as the Three P’s (People, Places and the Past). The only thing we can control is our attitude. But it isn’t that easy. One of the choices in recovery is choosing what we want to think and using our mental energy in a positive way.

Positive thinking can be extremely difficult in stressful situations. Positive thinking does not mean thinking in an unrealistic matter or reverting to denial. If I don’t like something, I respect my own opinion. If a problem hits me, I am honest about it. If something isn’t working out, I accept reality. I don’t have to dwell on the negative portions of my experience. So here I am affirming what is good in my life.


One way to empower the good is through affirmation. They are simple positive statements we make to ourselves:

1. I am my own unique self – special, creative and wonderful.

2. My life is a joy filled with love, fun and friendship all I need do is stop all criticism, forgive, relax and be open.

3. I’m glad I am alive today.

4. I give out Love and it is returned to me multiplied.

5. Loving myself heals my life. I nourish my mind, body and soul

6. I have a wonderful husband and we are both happy and at peace.

7. I choose to make positive healthy choices for myself.

8. I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.

9. I attract only healthy relationships

10. I prosper wherever I turn and I know that I deserve prosperity of all kinds

So when you think the world is against you, just say this:

Today, I will empower the good in myself, others and life. I’m willing to release, or let go of, negative thought patterns and replace them with positive ones. I will choose what I want to affirm, and I will make it good.

What positive statement do you say about yourself everyday? Please share.

    I love myself is something I say everyday.

    • Everyone should say that to themselves every day.

  • Meg

    Mine is I know I deserve love.

    • Love finds us when we love ourselves first.

  • I just remind myself that I’ve done some good in my life, and that I continue to have the capacity to contribute to the well being of others.

    • Very nice Neil. I will keep that in mind.

  • That is a good list, Noemi. I think I will just improve myself more in being a realistic person. Positive thinking is definitely a good attitude, but accepting the fact that things still can go wrong after doing your best is another good one.

    While we think it’s hard to control our own attitude, I think it’s harder to control others especially if they are blinded with their wrongdoings.

    • Positive thinking is not denial like I said. Yes and the only aspect we can control is our attitude.

    I’ve been reading your post about your son, and I remember the deaths who my younger brother died in 1996 an incoming 5th grade and another brother died in 2004 a fresh college grad. They both died in a vehicular accidents. Thanks for sharing your experience — I understand better why things must happen.
