Five affirmations to make 2016 awesome


I love this time of year. It plays into my optimistic, dreamer side. I love knowing that I have a brand new year ahead with so many possibilities. I feel the same about Mondays too. You may call me a dreamer. I do.

One thing I’ve loved doing over the last… oh decade or so… {ouch, does that make me old?} is using affirmations. When I’m stuck or feeling like a bit of a negative-Nancy, I love using affirmations. Affirmations are little statements said in the present tense, as if those things are already happening.

Let me share an example. When I started my own business, and started to do freelancing/blogging/social media on my own, my main concern was money. Hubby and I decided on things that I was going to be responsible for, and when I took the leap to work for myself I had to make sure that I made that money {or I had to get a real job!}. So I used the below affirmation. “I now do work I love, and I am well paid for it.”

I stuck it up in my office and it became my internal dialogue, especially when I was a bit stressed about dollars. So instead of having the internal dialogue being something like this, “Oh my gosh, I don’t have enough money. How am I going to pay the bills? How am I going to make this work?” I changed it to the affirmation, and got busy making money. I do believe what you think, you create.

Below you’ll find five affirmations that are great to use in the New Year and beyond. Choose one, or steal them all. The affirmations are from Louise Hay {my favourite}.

  1. Oh, I like this idea. Anything that helps us to think positively is great, I think. I’ve been writing a happy list every week on my blog and I swear it has changed my way of looking at things. I love the last affirmation the best 🙂 I am definitely going to use that one x

  2. I’m a fan of an affirmation too? I think the need to add your first one to my vision board ?

  3. OBSESSED with these, thanks for sharing. And I can completely relate to your freelancing story. The hubs + I have recently gone through the same thing + was feeling stressed, so I began a morning routine that includes positive affirmations before I begin my day. I really love your ” i do work i love and am well paid for it” may have to steal that one for my AM journalling. Happy New Year! xx

  4. I met Louise Hay and Wayne Dyer many years ago and I have an autographed Louise Hay affirmations flip book. It’s very special to me and the right affirmation comes to me when I randomly search through it. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2016 too Chantelle 🙂

  5. I’m so glad I’m reading this! What a wonderful way to start my day! Like Bec H, I am going to make affirmations rather than resolutions. Will definetely check out Louise Hay for more inspiration.

  6. Love this Chantelle. Affirmations seem so much more powerful than a goal. You’ve reminded me to dig out my gorgeous Louise Hay book I bought a few years ago and re-read 🙂 Happy New Year Chantelle – thank you for your kick-ass blog that inspires me and so many others xxx
