As some of you may know, I had the WONDERFUL opportunity to attend the Master Your Influence course by Kirk Duncan last month and it was AMAZING. One of the greatest things I took away from the experience is the power of your subconscious. What you SAY carries incredible power! There are thoughts racing through your mind constantly. Often times, in the form of single words that repeat again + again. But did you know that most of the time, our idle thoughts are NEGATIVE!? It's time to combat those negative thoughts with positive and reassuring thoughts!
Here is where Affirmations (or as Kirk calls them, Declarations) come in! An affirmation is simply, a positive statement. An affirmation can be a single word that is positive and action oriented for a quick pick-me-up. (Examples: Powerful, Freedom, Abundance, Charity.) OR, it can be a complete sentence! (Example: I am patient, I am loving, I am enough.)
It can be very beneficial to not only say these affirmations aloud, but to also see them written out daily! There are a number of sources out there to find affirmations! In fact, if you follow @JennasKitchen you know she is currently doing a #30daysofaffirmations segment which is so powerful + awesome!
Today is FRIDAY and we are starting something new here at Motherhood Essentials: FREEBIE FRIDAY! Today's FREEBIE is a collection of affirmations that you can print out at home, or at your local print shop to hang on your Vision Board (something we'll talk about later), or on your mirror. (Wherever you will see it everyday!) They also make for great phone backgrounds, or social media posts to share with others!

What you say has such an impact on how you think + feel! Motherhood is draining, exhausting, and not for the weak of heart. It can be so easy to slip into feelings of negativity after a tough day. Let's change the way we live + parent, for the better.
