Daily Positive Affirmations


Here’s a simple tool to make it towards the end of 2015 proud and celebrating more success than defeats. It’s by starting every single day with an open heart and a positive attitude. I am a strong believer in incorporating daily positive affirmations into my morning routine.

It all started when I attended a corporate retreat a few years ago. My coworkers and I were looking forward to an easy day but instead we ended up learning how to grow personally. Now if you know anything about me, you know that any new knowledge that furthers my self-development really gets me excited. One of the sessions was on the importance of a daily positive affirmations practice. You see as Iyanla Vanzant put it, we sometimes have “humping puppies” in our heads. You know how you train your puppy and it behaves well but soon as a guest comes over he starts humping on their legs nonstop. Well, when we start to believe negative things about ourselves and our lives they behave like humping puppies in our heads. If let’s say your humping puppy is saying “I’m stupid” no matter what you do, you will think “I’m stupid”, “I’m stupid”, “I’m stupid.” This could have been something a relative said to you out of anger as a child and it stuck with you for all these years. If you make a typo on a report at work or take the wrong exit on the highway, you’re going to say “I’m stupid” and it will become part of your belief system. Here’s the thing though, we are Moms in Heels, we are not and we have no time to nurture negativity in our minds and within our families. That’s why I wanted to share this list of daily positive affirmations. You can print them and put them up above your work area or in your bathroom or just memorize them to recite during your commute or your times of stillness.


If you usually wake up feeling anxious or with a negative mindset, here is my nighttime routine to ensure I wake up with positive energy. Click here for the article, you may find it helpful.

Don’t be afraid to practice daily affirmations with your kids, on the way to school every morning the Princess Fairy and I point the day in a positive direction by reciting these and other kid friendly ones (I’ll share hers in another post).

    I am going to print these affirmations out and put them where I can see them daily! Love this Adanna. So necessary.

    • RattlesandHeels

      They are necessary MJ! Too much negative out in the world, we need that balance.

  • They certainly are! Sometimes when I get overwhelmed and start to think negatively, I take a deep breath and start again.

    • RattlesandHeels

      That’s what I need to do Vashti incorporate them when I have a tough moment throughout the day.

  • iluv2globetrot

    I absolutely love this! I am a believer of the “I am” sayings but I need to get better with the daily affirmations. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • RattlesandHeels

      No problem, we all need it.

  • I’ve just started adding positive affirmations to my morning routine. I’m going to save these and use some of them.

    • RattlesandHeels

      What’s your experience since you started incorporating them?

  • I love affirmations and “I am becoming who I want to be” is one of my favorites. That’s most definitely something I need to remind myself of regularly. Most definitely something I can save for assurance and future reference 🙂 #blmgirls Great list!
