Affirmations are such a huge part of my life and I believe that living a life you love is all about reaching for it and manifesting it. An affirmation is a positive, hopeful statement that can help you to overcome challenging, self-sabotaging and negative thoughts.
There are two parts of yourself. Your inner lover, best friend, true soul AND your inner critic. Sometimes your inner critic is loud and may be the only thing you can hear. Sometimes it tells you everything you’re doing wrong in life.
Affirmations, if you repeat them often and truly believe in them, can start to make positive changes and change your mindset. Self-affirmation may also help to soothe the effects of anxiety + stress (so important during the holiday season!). The best part about affirmations is that they can show up EVERYWHERE and can be used EVERYDAY. From the clothes I wear, to the journals + mugs I use, to the way I speak out when I’m faced with a challenge—affirmations show up constantly in my life.
At Philosophie HQ, we decided to put our affirmations on our morning toasts for #ToastTuesday, which is not only fueling us from the inside out but also makes us feel GOOD emotionally and mentally. I AM LOVE reminds me to continue to show up to life from a place of love - love for others, for my job and most importantly, for myself. What are you putting on your morning toasts? I’d love to know!
Canyon Gluten-Free Bread (or any other of your favorite piece of bread)
A sprinkling of coconut flakes
Optional: a sprinkling of edible gold tiny hearts to make it extra magical (you can also use any other topping you want!)
Toast bread and spread on almond butter mixed with Cacao Magic. With alphabet cookie cutters, cut out your affirmation with a banana and place them on the toast. Finish with a sprinkle of gold hearts and coconut flakes. ENJOY!
What are your affirmations? Did you put them on your superfood toast? I'd love to see! Share with me on Instagram using #PhilosophieLove or #PhilosophieSuperfoods.
