Fans of Rachel Hollis and Girl, Wash Your Face will love Becca Anderson's Badass Affirmations
Even a badass needs daily affirmations: We all need reminders now and then. You don’t leap out of bed every day knowing you are amazing and about to have an incredible day. All of us have a lot of demands, pressures, to-do’s and responsibilities so we find ourselves rushing around, working hard to please others. Most of the time, you find yourself at the back of your own bus, having made everyone else happy but your own damn self. Then you go and beat yourself up about it. Let’s stop that, shall we?
The incredible art of self-affirmation: Positive living and affirmation queen Becca Anderson is here to remind you that you are pretty darn great. I had to learn to remind myself of that but you know what? It feels pretty darn good. It is even kind of addictive in the best possible way. While this might seem like a fluffy little exercise, it actually runs quite deep and will serve you the rest of your life. There are reasons we need esteem boosters here and there; we pick up scars along the way and get bumps and bruises in the wake of daily life. If you had a bad childhood, you have these old “tapes” from poor parenting that loop around in your brain on an unconscious level, “You’ll never amount to anything. You’re not good at sports. Your sister has a much better singing voice than you, so we’re sending her to music camp and you can stay behind and babysit.” Even really nice moms and dads perpetrate these parenting errors that leave marks on the souls of their children. But, this can all be overcome with the right mix of badass affirmations. Every day and in every way, you can learn the art of self-affirmation.
Self-affirmation adjustment: If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and drained by the busyness of life with too many demands, you need to stop in your tracks and do an attitude adjustment, or more specifically a “gratitude adjustment.” Whenever you have gotten to this point, you have need for some “me TLC” and a dose of radical self-affirmation.
The habit of daily affirmations builds self-esteem: If you affirm yourself every day, you can rule the world. More importantly, you can live a life filled with love, joy, fulfillment and satisfaction thanks to your own positive self-regard. Through the art of self-affirmation or daily affirmations, you can take control of your own destiny and create your ideal life. If it sounds easy, it can be but it does require the discipline that you reflect upon positive affirmations each day. These affirmations are a mindfulness practice that will strengthen your self-esteem. Like a muscle, the more you do it, the stronger your confidence and sense of self will be. Positive Affirmations for a Badass is the ultimate motivating, encouraging, and uplifting book to enjoy and share. These very wise words and affirmative sayings have the power to touch our hearts, make us laugh and alleviate our stress, while realizing the vast potential life has to offer.
