Affirmations for a Boss Momma and Her Struggles

It’s not doubt in my mind that being a mother is hard. My son is almost two and I’ve been tested more than once. It’s taken time to learn the right level of patience with a wild soul of a child. My son is hyper active and some how- has endless energy to destroy.

One thing no one told motherhood would be filled with so much trial and error, sadness, and frustration. In the first year of my son’s life I isolated myself and shut myself in my home. No one checked up on me, and no one asked to see me nor my son.

I felt alone, and there was endless chores and messes- even to this day I constantly have a sink full of dishes, unkeep hair, hand prints all of my walls and lap, and undone laundry. Balancing his needs, my house needs, my work and clients has been the bane of my existence and sometimes I wish I never had to sleep so I could at least 20 minutes to myself.

Someone always thinks they have the answer to your issues, and people who have never been a mother or parent will give you advice that is just so beyond irrelevant and impossible to follow that you think one of these days you’re just going to plan explode. 

I’ve been there, and some days, I still am. My son is only almost two and the worse hasn’t even came yet. This article isn’t to say I’m perfect and I have all the answers- because truthfully I am still there with you- I’m still frusated most days, and most days I’m so exhausted. Hey- some days I ignore chores because sometimes I just can’t muster the energy or motivation to do it.

But I’ve found that these affirmations help me stay balanced, focused, and centered.

“I have the ability to stay patient through out the day”

“I give myself permission to relax and take things as the go”

“I have the innate wisdom to take care of my child and myself today.”

“Today is a new day, and brings new blessings”

Affirmations That Will Change Your Self Talk

Affirmations are becoming more and more popular, but a lot of people either don’t know what they are, or don’t know how to utilize them properly. An affirmation is something we say out loud or to ourselves to affirm a belief or a way of thinking- comparable to a prayer but for yourself.

Affirmation are great to teach yourself healthy, productive self talk. Self talk is very important for many reason- it can breed a much productive, motivated lifestyle. Negative self talk can create self restriction, poor outlook on life, and poor attitudes.

Here is a compiled list of Affirmations that you can use daily to improve your self talk:
I have permission to be happy


I am allowed to make mistakes- they are needed to learn


I am powerful, unstoppable, and courageous


There is nothing that can stop me


I can overcome all obstacles that come to me


No one control me other than me


I am talented, unique, and one of a kind


There is no one just like me, and I am living an unique experience


I am a being of love- I both give and recieve


I have the right to set boundaries for myself

Here are Five Ways to Brighten Your Day

A lot of coaches or spiritualist talk about mindset, mindset, mindset. 

“Mindset is key to everything”

“As long as your have the right mindset you’ll succeed”

The frustrating part is that they never tell you 1) what the right mindset is 2) how to achieve this mindset. Often the only reply is “think positively”. Which sure, that seems like great advice but if it were that simple- than I probably would not pay you hand over fist to have a coaching session with you.

I’m going to tackle the “positive thinking” aspect of this issue, and in another blog post I’ll tackle mindset more deeply.

Now you can try to be as positive as possible, but you’re going to run into one issue: some days it’s just going to be IMPOSSIBLE. Why? Because it’s really just not human to always have the perfect energy and positive attitude. If anyone tells you it is, they’re lying to you. They’re hiding one vital truth: when they are having a rough day they retreat to these five tricks:

1.) Music. 

It doesn’t matter what genre they listen to- as long as they can vibe to it and it speaks to them. I mean, even with me when I’m having a bad day I put my radio on a jam out. Dance, sing, and jam until my heart is completely content.

2.) Rest.

Yep, rest is so vital. A lot of people will tell you to push through the mental blockage. This is horrible advice. The best thing to do when you are having a hard day is to just slow down and take everything second by second.

3.) Being Mindful.

Any good spiritualist knows a bad day is clearly a day to get in touch with everything around them. Being able to feel the earth beneath you, the smells around you, truly taste food and drinks will bring you back into reality and take you out of that funk you’ve sunk into.

4.) Nature.

Now this one isn’t always possible, especially if you live in an area like I do that half the year it’s gloom and doom, but letting the sun shine on your skin is such a great way to start your day right or to be able to shake some dust off your day. Good weather is fantastic for recharging your energy.

5.) Affirmations.

Affirmations are a great way to start working on a long term goal of fixing your inner voice. Speaking positive things out loud to yourself is a great way to slowly rid of that negative self talk- which is one of the greatest ways to creat self restrictive attitudes.

These are my first go to tactics when I’m feeling a little blue.
