Hi Rosemarie, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
I have so many favorites! But first, a little clarity around affirmations as they are often misunderstood.

Affirmations must be something YOU BELIEVE AND VALUE, even if you’re only part way there. If not, it can be defeating, promote an unsafe space of toxic positivity where our real feelings are disregarded, and create a vicious cycle of stuck. For example, I love the affirmation “I am enough”. However, years ago this affirmation would have turned sour as I spoke the words because I didn’t truly believe it – not even just a little bit. I had to start with self like before inching my way into self love. Incorporating our story, our truth of the moment, are what spark a fire in affirmations. Taking this approach of honoring your journey personally and professionally requires a bit more work to land on what’s right for you. And it’s so worth it.
