November Challenge of the Month – Affirmations Baby!

You are what you think.

Anyone who knows me well, knows I’m an affirmation ninja.

I change them up all the time, but the one I’m loving right now is “Right here, right now, I’m exactly where I need to be.”

If I’m having a hard time falling asleep or I’m stressed out, this little phrase calms be right down.

I’ve been using daily affirmations for a long time.

In my early twenties, I was working on Broadway in a musical that scared the crap out of me.  It was an extremely difficult role and I was terrified of it. Every night, right before curtain, I would have an a little panic attack.

I’d think,  “I can’t do this. I’m not the person for this job. I’m not good enough for this job.”  I began dreading going to work.

One day I walked into my friend’s dressing room and saw colorful post-its all over her mirrors.


“What are those for?” I asked.

“Those are my affirmations. My saving grace in life.”  She said.

“Huh?” I’d never heard of them.

She told me all about affirmations and why they kick ass, and I started doing them that night.

My attitude went from having daily dread to feeling joy and excitement.  Well,  I’ve been a believer ever since.

  1. Again, thanks and more thanks for this idea, which I’ve tried before and am trying again with you.

    I find it’s fun to use the lyrics of an inspiring song as my affirmation — that way I can sing it to myself for extra energy. I used this one (Makin’ It by David Naughton) as is — and then rewrote some of the lyrics to make it more personal!; here’s a kareoke version:

      • Hi,Thanks for your comment.It is indeed worrying to see that these kind of companies seem to have information on consumers that should not just be out there.Always interesting to ask them where they obtained these details, although mind you I am not expecting them to tell the truth.Kind reeoadsCustrmgr Care

  2. Thanks for the inspirational idea of positive post it notes. It’s just what I need as I’m determined to fight my way thru panic attacks. Keep my courage up and it will keep me up.
