Do you dare to be fiery, fierce, and fearless?
Many times the way to achieve this persona all has to do with your mentality. The way you think tends to build the way you carry yourself. So if you want to be that boss lady who owns the room every time she walks in, then here are some positive affirmations to get you there.
Look in the mirror and tell yourself:
I am enough– I will not confirm or lessen my standards to appease or appeal to anyone who does not accept me for who I am and what I am.
I am worthy– the color of my skin is not definitive of where I belong in this world and no one will be allowed to disregard my presence or silence my voice, based on the color of my flesh.
I will surround myself with positive people– if there is anyone in my life that tries to disturb or threaten my peace, I will compassionately remove him or her from my space and focus on the souls whom I share a genuine connection with.
I am allowed to acknowledge all that makes me human – I give myself permission to weep and to experience sorrow, to laugh or to cry, to make mistakes or feel failure, to grieve and to praise, and I will recognize my humanness and be submerged in all its glory.
My body is celestial– my temple is an exhibit of Gods art form. His hands have crafted me with goodness in mind and intricate detail. I exhibit a touch of warmth- the sun has kissed my flesh and I am the Polaris in a bed full of stars who covet my light- My being will be respected, I refuse to be another tossed black body.
I will allow myself to evolve– I will trust my process and applaud myself for my progress. I am trying- and I will recognize that this is enough.
I will recognize my good qualities– I am an imperfect person, but I am full of grace, wisdom, beauty, and knowledge. I will not let my insecurities ring louder than my worth.
I am deserving of respect– I practice kindness, I cultivate love towards others and I have a right to expect that same energy to be emitted back to me. Being treated like a human is not too much to ask for- therefore, I will make my petition known unapologetically.
I will not conform to the ways of my enemies – I will uphold my virtues and I will not stoop down to the negative actions or opinions from folks who do not walk in my light.
I will love myself unconditionally– the love that I cultivate towards myself will be the calm within my storms. My life is deserving of its best chance, and I will walk on the path that promotes inner healing. I will stay grounded and rooted in the fruit of internal love, and I will not be swayed to believe less of myself or what I am capable of becoming.
