Confession: My name is Alexas and I talk to myself. Guess what? You should too! On a daily basis, positive deposits and affirmations can help us successfully complete each day. This section is dedicated to strength building quotes, revelations and self-help resources for both you and me. We've got this! First things first :
You ARE enough!
Sticky notes are so effective for so many of our daily tasks. In the past, I would put reminders in my phone and conveniently never get the notification. I'm old fashion because it works and I can't hit ignore, ha, ha!! I use sticky notes for lists, tasks, expense noting (until I can spend more time to file properly) and so much more.
Two main uses are to remind and affirm myself to refresh my outlook and to create a visual roadmap of goals. I love to unpeel goals achieved!
What you say matters!
Daily Affirmations are clutch! They can effectively push you into victory. What you speak over yourself, your day and the tasks at hand can determine the outcome before you've even begun. Use your words to your advantage and speak positively over all the concerns you! You've got this!
