If you know me, you’ll know I hate superficial, screen-worthy stuff.
I detest social media for how women often portray themselves (and how others portray women), all filtered, hair dyed, skin dyed, whatever else dyed too.
I despise how society defines women to look a certain way or be a certain shape.
This in essence is why I believe so much in wellbeing practices, because it’s never easy to be a woman.
We need to buff up our inner vibe to keep ourselves healthy.
On the plus side, I feel we’re starting to wake up to the bullshit narrative.
Like we’re all sick of striving to be ‘this or that’ and that, perhaps, just perhaps, we are enough?
As we are?
Without a man telling us so, or without being commented on for how we look or what we’re wearing.
But if you’re not feeling it (yet), these affirmations may help you.
They’re not affirmations for traditional beauty and confidence, mind you!
They’re affirmations for you to tune into your self-worth.
As you are today. Right now.
Without needing to change this or that to be worthy.
Let’s do this, shall we?
If you need guidance on implementing affirmations for best results, read this post first.

The key to affirmations is to repeat them regularly.
Find a time of day where you get to be on your own (mums – evenings or early mornings are good when the kids sleep), and repeat them in your head or out loud.
Choose just one or two to begin with, and say them repeatedly.
My personal preference is to say them out loud. I repeat affirmations to myself on my early morning runs sometimes (it keeps me motivated to make it up the hill!)
