These are the first two sentences I wrote on my website page, “I AM ME”:
“I AM” are two of the most important and powerful words that you can say. You believe what you tell yourself so what you put behind these two little words shapes your perspective of your reality.
An affirmation is a positive statement declared to be true.
An affirmation is used to uplift and empower the person using it.
There is a phrase that has been used repeatedly throughout this pandemic. You have probably heard many say, “I am stuck at home”. You have probably been told by or heard from others that “You are stuck at home.” It may be safe to say that many haven’t thought twice about this terminology.
What happens when you accept how this is being said?
You believe it taking on the perception that you are stuck.
What does being stuck mean to you? How does it make you feel?
The word ‘stuck’ carries a negative connotation. It means being unable to move from a particular position or place; unable to change a situation.
The terminology that you use or accept is very important to your well-being. Words like thoughts, emotions, actions and reactions are energetic. This energy affects you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
A negative perspective is always accompanied by negative ramifications. These ramifications can be depression, sadness, sense of lacking, loneliness, anxiety, anger, hate, worry, fear, boredom, wavering faith, pessimism, dwindling hope, and many more. Do not dwell on the negative.
You are NOT stuck!
Block out this type of negativity by using an affirmation as it is intended.
Examples: I am home, I am safe at home, or I am on a home staycation.
Whatever your situation is right now… stay informed but limit your exposure to negativity and follow the guidelines but do not become idle.
