Today, I made a declaration that I am going to create an affirmation for myself. With everything I’ve gone through after my husband’s affair, I am at a point in my life where I need a change. I have always been into writing down my life goals, and doing this has worked out pretty well. And yet for some reason, two kids and a husband later, I have neglected to write down affirmations.
For those of you who don’t know, an affirmation is simply a positive thought that you write down and say to yourself. This is especially useful when you are trying to change a behavior or habit. In my case, I needed to stop looking at my messed-up past and look forward to the future. In order to achieve this, I would say to myself “I am excited about all of the possibilities that are in store for me, I learned from my past and can’t wait to see the wonderful future.” I would say it over and over again until I felt comfortable that I have changed my behavior.
I am at a place in my life where I want to expect good things to happen. There’s just one problem with affirmations, you can’t make them work on those pesky little cheating spouses!
