Every December, social media is flooded with people making New Year’s resolutions that they do not live up to; it’s so tiring to see. As a man of faith, I’d rather see one speaking affirmations over themselves, their families and friends, rather than making resolutions that they’ll never be able to keep.
I’ve never understood the concept of individuals waiting until the start of a New Year to become a better person. Why does being better have to wait until the new year begins? Shouldn’t striving to be better be an everyday goal? Maybe it’s just me who understands this.
I’ve noticed most resolutions that people make have to do with other people. Shouldn’t the resolution be a self-focus? I am all for people becoming a better version of themselves, but the resolutions I’ve been seeing are carrying such a negative connotation behind them.
Examples: “In 2016, I ain’t friends with no fake people.” “In 2016, I’m blocking numbers.” “In 2016, I’m deleting people off my friends list.”
I can’t help but to roll my eyes when I see dumb shit (pardon my language) like that. Instead of focusing on negativity, focus on all that is positive. Be the light in the world that you wish to do. Be the change you wish to see.
Below are some DAILY affirmations you can speak over yourself to become a better person. The best thing about these are 1.) you do not have to wait until the new year and 2.) you may speak these over yourself everyday.
1.) I am a child of the Most High God
2.) Today, I will strive to be better than I was yesterday
3.) I am whole, healthy, and full of God’s love
4.) I am happy on this journey God has placed me
5.) I will accomplish every dream and goal God has place in my heart
6.) Myself and my loved ones are prosperous and we do not lack
Declare these things everyday and watch how your life transforms.
Until next time, #FancyFriends
