I did a self-improvement workshop a few weeks back for a group of university students. I promised them that I would send them weekly positive affirmations to help guide them and hopefully aid them in whatever they needed for that weeks time. Through conversation, more students and staff asked to be part of the email blast. So, I decided to post the affirmations here on my blog as a way to reach out to my whole community to help you on whatever journey you’re on.
This quote changed my life’s perspective. Maya Angelou (yes I had the pleasure of meeting her & it was amazing) is/was a powerhouse of a woman…a human…a being. And some would say that this quote turned affirmation isn’t quite positive - perhaps blunt and somewhat attainable based on how much control you have over your own thoughts. Knowing what I know that has been published about her life, this quote is a powerful statement.
I go about my life with this in my pocket. Knowing that I do have the ability to challenge any thoughts that may hold me back. Knowing that I have the capabilities to work towards my desired confidence level. And lastly, while there is a place for complaining - knowing that my actions are stronger than my words. Enjoy (life).
