Affirmations: Planting Seeds of Love

Affirmations are simple but powerful thoughts that can have enormous impact. You can think of positive affirmations like little seeds of love and encouragement you’re planting in your children that help grow their mindfulness about themselves. These small thoughtful seeds can be nurtured to grow into an abundance of greatness in their lives, building their insight, self-esteem, and confidence, creating a strong foundation that can challenge all of those negative limiting beliefs that life presents. As parents we have the power to transform our children’s lives, through positive and loving reinforcement, instilling great values that will last a lifetime.

If you’re anything like me, my heart aches every time I see one of my children doubt themselves or let another person’s words hurt them. It makes me want to do everything in my power to make a lasting positive difference in their lives and how they see themselves. I want them to grow up confident and secure and happy, knowing deep down their immense value in this world. Looking to really tap into their hearts and their minds, I’ve looked to positive affirmations to speak to their hearts and create a lasting impression in their lives. I try to weave affirmations in their day in different ways like through little surprise notes in our daughters lunchbox or by saying them to our sons in moments of quieter loving times. Though simple little phrases, I do think they are quite powerful. I’m a firm believer that even the smallest ideas can have a huge impact if done with love and intention. And if it comes from deep down in the heart from a place of pure love, like that which you have for your child, the impact can be amazing.
