Your words have power. They have the ability to bring life and cause death. They uplift and to tear down. They can bring success and to cause failure.

What words are you speaking into your life? How do you describe yourself? How do you allow others to talk about you to your face? How do you see yourself? Do you love you? I ask this because “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks”.  Are you someone who speaks rashly and self-harms with negative comments? Are you killing yourself slowly with your destructive speech?

If your answer to the above is yes, beautiful, it’s time to change the way you speak and heal your soul. It’s also time to get rid of “friends” who bring you down with their mouths. “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body”. I’d like to encourage you today to ask trusted family and friends to list what they see as your positive attributes and use them as affirmations. Alternatively think of words and statements opposite to the bad ones you/other people say. Start each quality with either “I am…” or “[Insert your name here], you are…” and reject the negative. 

For example, and using my name:

I am beautiful and not ugly / Natalie you are beautiful and not ugly
I am smart and not dumb / Natalie you are smart and not dumb
I am a success and not a failure / Natalie you are a success and not a failure
I am blessed and not cursed / Natalie you are blessed and not cursed
I am enough / Natalie you are enough

The key to this is repetition and consistency. As a challenge speak positive statements to your mirror reflection every day for a week, even if you don’t entirely believe what you are saying, and note the change. Then carry on for another week. You are not your situations. You are not your failures. It’s time to go on a journey of self-healing and self-loving.

Please feel free to share this post with someone and send us a message if you take on the challenge.
