As I flourish into a better person, I accept the change. This is my process.


Change, many times in our lives can be scary, as the unknown can prove to be mysterious. So it is important that we encourage ourselves and prime ourselves for success. We can do that by reciting mantras or positive affirmations. We train our brains by speaking of ourselves in present tense. So snatch up your skirt, from around your ankles and let’s walk forward in purpose, power and victory.


Let’s practice these affirmations below, together.


I embrace any positive changes that come my way. I understand that change is a healthy and necessary part of life. For this reason, I keep an open mind when faced with a change that I may be reluctant to accept.


I constantly strive towards bettering myself. Sometimes the change may be as simple as eating healthier meals or it can be as drastic as heading back to school. But wonderfully desirable results are worth the uncertainty of the transition period.


Sometimes, I may fall short of reaching my destination. If that is the case, I get right back on the horse and try again. When several attempts yield little result, I reevaluate my goals to reflect on the situation, and I push forward.


I certainly love myself as I am. However, I am the type of person that always reaches for more. Life would lose much meaning if I stopped trying to improve and my efforts will benefit my family as well as me.


Like a rose, I am ever growing and expanding. Though it takes time and nurturing; my petals spread and my hard work and patience deliver a stronger and more-beautiful-than-yesterday me!


Today, I chase a dream. I can switch careers, lose weight, and learn to dance or even start a new business. With dedication like mine, it is impossible to strike out. I push all inhibitions to the side and lock my fears in an airtight box. I am capable of achieving the best! This, I am sure of!


I am inspired! I am motivated! I am great! I am powerful! I take action! My action breeds results and now I am released to go be AWESOME!


Self-Reflection Questions:


  1. Can I include my family or friends in my quest to embrace change?
  2. Do I have a 5-year, 10-year, or 20-year plan?
  3. What am I doing to achieve my goals?
