Life can be difficult, then amazing, and then difficult again. We’ve all experienced the highs and lows that life presents to us, and we know that it’s normal to feel these wide-ranging emotions. Sometimes though, it can be incredibly challenging to make our way through the difficult moments and to see the light at the end of the tunnel when things are hard.
I have made it my intention lately to try to just be the witness of life. For me this means not judging what’s happening as either good nor bad, rather to simply allow, accept, and most importantly, learn.
Keeping a positive perspective on life, especially when we are feeling frustrated, sad, defeated, lost, or confused can help us remember that everything in life passes, and that this feeling, this moment, this situation is not permanent. It is simply a chapter in the book of our lives.
When we have this perspective we can remember that the life that we are living right now is our unique, special journey. There’s no one else in the world like you, with your path, and your life circumstances. There’s no one else who has your purpose, place, passions, and life dreams. So when life feels challenging and difficult, remember to find this perspective and use these five simple affirmations to bring you back to a place of peace and understanding.
1. I trust the timing of my life.
2. I am enough, I am whole, I am complete.
3. I am worthy of my deepest desires.
4. I am strong and capable.
5. I love my life, and my life loves me.
These five affirmations have been helping me so much in working through my own difficulties, and I truly hope they help you too!
What are some affirmations you use to remind you to love your life, regardless of what’s happening externally? I’d love to hear. Let me know in the comments!
