- I deserve success and am capable of accomplishing my goals.
- My quirks are what make me unique. I will strive for authenticity, even when I feel vulnerable sharing my true self.
- My worth does not rest upon my outward appearance. I am not a number on a scale or a line item on someone else’s list. My worth comes from within and is measured by the kindness in my heart.
- Even though I have no control over how others treat me, I always have control over how they affect me.
- I have been blessed with qualities that uplift others and even on my hardest days, I am the perfect mother for my children.

- There is no such thing as failure, only success and opportunities for growth. I will use my setbacks to propel me forward.
- I am worthy of love, acceptance, and greatness. I will not allow others to convince me otherwise, nor will I spend my time trying to change those who continually try to bring me down. I will not waste my time on those who do not treat me with kindness and respect.
- Today I will choose to live in the present instead of worrying about the future or dwelling in the past.

- Life goes on. No obstacle I face today will be so great that it will stop the sun from rising tomorrow. I will get through any setbacks with my heart in tact.
- I can choose to start over at any time, as often as I wish. I will litter life with do-overs when needed and won’t allow a difficult situation turn into a difficult day (or hour, or year, or life). I will choose to look for the good and let that be my focus, even in the face of the hardest circumstances.
- Each day I am one day closer to achieving my goals. It is up to me to put in the work to get there, and no one else can be blamed for my shortcomings.

Next time you feel yourself slipping into a dark and dreary place filled with self-doubt, fill your heart with positive affirmations.
It may feel a little silly, but eventually, the light will shine through the darkness and your inner voice will be your biggest source of strength. Afterall, if we do not value ourselves enough to be our own biggest cheerleaders, how can we expect others to cheer for us?
