10 Mindfulness Affirmations To Create A Life Of Purpose

10 Mindfulness Affirmations To Create A Life Of Purpose

What is the difference between living and existing? I like to ask this question often in my life coaching group practice sessions (you know the one I'm getting certified for) because many of us go through our days on autopilot - without fully living. And the simple act of thinking about the answer to this question puts you in a state of mindfulness and awareness. We often get so caught up in simply existing - in thinking about how busy we are, emails and messages we have to return, distractions from social media, and the dreams we’re putting off because of fear or uncertainty. That it can be easy to forget to experience life in its purest form and without judgment.

A Self-Love Affirmation

But, lets start with what is self-love? Many of us don’t know the answer to this question. The truth is, many of us never truly developed it, or it is not very strong. This can lead to destructive, harmful, and unhealthy ways we treat ourselves, including how we allow others to mistreat us. It wasn’t until I wrote a self-love affirmation that I started on a journey that helped me recover and, heal my depression, and build a life centered on well-being and happiness. Anyone can write a self-love affirmation. Even if you think your self-love is good, it’s important to make sure to continue to build your self-love and keep it strong. Having strong self-love is the foundation for which the rest of your life and your happiness stands.

Forget Yourself To Find Yourself

Forget Yourself To Find Yourself

You’re looking to consolidate your gains. Only a crazy person would invest time, energy — true sweat equity — into something only to abandon it for no good reason. I’d come so far in getting into a daily regimen of writing, being a full-time business student and on my way to becoming a certified coach, working toward my first startup and moving forward toward publishing my first book. (too many things, right?) Then, family and financial duties called. Not to forget my medical situation too. Next thing I knew, I was in the vicious cycle of life. When you’re there, you realize that like a hamster on a wheel, it’s hard to slow down. We tend to rely exclusively on the left side of our brains, with little regard for the creativity, imagination, and gifts of wonder that illuminate our thoughts and dreams. In other words — we’re focused on process and tasks, not what we love.

Do You Really Know Yourself? I Mean Really?

Do You Really Know Yourself? I Mean Really?

How well do you know yourself? Your likes, style, preferences, colors, and more. Is what you like and prefer the things that make your soul dance or the things you were told you should like when you were growing up?
