Kicking off the Month of Me

It hit me this weekend, I use up my energy and time worrying about meeting someone, worrying what every else is doing, worrying that I’m missing an opportunity to be out and meeting new people.  There is something to be said for “putting yourself out there”. But there is also something to be said for putting the focus on you!  Therefore, I have declared this the Month of Me.  No more thinking about what boys are or are not thinking about me. No more worrying about who’s where and where should I do.  All decisions will be based on me. All energy will be spent on me.  What do I want to do? What will I enjoy doing in this moment?

In the spirit of the Month of Me, I have decided to try affirmations. That’s right, I’m bringing back Stuart Smalley!  I am reading a book that suggestions affirmations are a way to effectively reprogram negative thoughts and turn them into positive ones. With the underlying theory being that negative thoughts create a reality that reflects those thoughts. Whereas positive thoughts create a positive reality that reflects those thoughts.

This week’s affirmations:
I am enough.
I deserve love.
I will not bit my fingers.
(I’ve been a pervasive finger biter for years and years. So I figured if you are going to use affirmations to change behavior, why not start with something practical!)

According to the book, you will start to see changes very quickly after making the mental shift to the positive thought track.  If you channeled your inner Stuart Smalley, what affirmations would you use?
