3 Affirmations for Mental Strength to Carry You Through This Next Thing

1. I am stronger than I feel.

Yes: honor your feelings. They won’t go very far if you don’t. They want to be seen and felt so they can impart their wisdom and then morph into something else. That's what feelings do.

No: your feelings aren’t actually who you are. You’re stronger than that. Strong enough to let them come and go and not be washed away.

Honor the struggle and use it to make yourself stronger.

“The depth of the feeling continued to surprise and threaten me, but each time it hit again and I bore it… I would discover that it hadn’t washed me away.” — Anne Lamott

2. I am wiser than I think.

Intelligence isn’t just in your brain: it’s in your heart and bones and muscles and cells.

Trust yourself to get through this and come out the other side, not because you have all the answers, but because you’re curious enough to keep learning what works and what doesn’t.

You’re wise enough to revere life, even when it hurts to be alive. THAT is strength.

“Our lives are filled with difficulties, from frustration and stress to illness and loss, from uncertainty and doubt to fear and guilt … but while they can often be the source of wearing us down, they can also be a source of growth, transformation and beauty.” — Leo Babauta

3. I am more valuable than I know.

Strength is knowing your value in a world that tries to get you to believe you’re inadequate by being you.

You’re essential by design. Your being here is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of miracle. Whoa, look at you BE.

Stay with it. Stand your ground, so you can move forward -- heal, grow, learn -- your own way.

. . .

Guess what? I made a print with these!

OK fine, I made two prints. Here’s the “you are strong enough” one. Get your favorite so you never have to go a whole day forgetting how incredibly awesome you are.

And tell me:

Which of these phrases do you need to make your life mantra?

Tell me in the comments. I read every single one, and I’d love to know!

In strength,

Jen
