I first read The Secret in January 2019 and it is the first book I ever read which I can truly say changed my life.
The years leading up to 2017 were challenging to say the least.
I’d spend three years in a very toxic relationship with my first every boyfriend which ended in an awkward breakup, I’d bounced around from job to job feeling useless and unfulfilled in every single one, I went through some seriously messed up family drama and to top it all off, my parents had a very messy split after a 25 year dysfunctional marriage.
So to say that 2017 was a year of healing and starting again would be a huge understatement.
I was starting from scratch with a new home, new job, new relationship and a complete lack of any self-esteem or confidence.
Although I manged to heal a lot from the past in 2017 and 2018, and gained some confidence from finally being with somebody who treated me with respect, I still had a long way to go in believing that I was good enough, or deserving of happiness.
Then, roll on January 2019.
I don’t know how it happened, but I suddenly realized that the path my life had taken so far, and some aspects of where it currently was were not where I wanted to be.
The only part of my life that made me happy was my relationship with my boyfriend Tom and my group of friends who have been there for me for years throughout my different struggles.
So I started reading a tonne of self help books, listening to podcasts and absorbing other video and audio content online designed to help people build back their belief in themselves.
The Secret was the first book I read as part of my journey and it’s the most inspiring book I have ever read. The book tells the story of how positive thinking and The Law Of Attraction can bring you anything you want in life. Your thoughts become things, so if you picture your dream life every single day, you will be inspired and empowered to take action to bring those dreams to fruition. On the other hand, if you focus on the negative aspects of life: debt, sadness, toxicity – you’re only going to attract more of that moving forward.
The book is packed full of positive affirmations, which can open your eyes to ways you can look at life’s situations positively, and no matter how bleak something may seem, there is always something good to takeaway.
While it might feel corny to say these affirmations to yourself in the mirror in the morning or remind yourself of the words before bed, the effect of doing so every day can be life changing.
Over the last 12 months, I have found myself in many ways. I know what I want from life, I have the confidence to put a plan together to make it happen, and I have the self belief to go for it no matter what anybody around me thinks.
So today I wanted to share with you my favourite positive affirmations which changed my life and helped me set aside some of the self-limiting beliefs that were holding me back from chasing the things I want.
