Midult affirmations

Maintaining the elasticity of the brain. Carving new neural pathways. Challenging negative beliefs. Affirmations have huge therapeutic value. Here are ours:

  1. I am the only person who has control over my eating habits. And one day, I will have control over my drinking habits too.
  2. Britney got through 2007, I can get through today.
  3. I listen to my inner guide when it says, “Don’t socialise with other humans tonight, you’re too behind on Homeland.”
  4. I am safe! Except between 2am and 6.30am!
  5. Abundance flows freely through me and then straight out of my bank account.
  6. I accept my power. I just don’t know how to turn it on.
  7. I choose to release all my hurt and resentment. And take it out on you for no reason.
  8. Every experience I have is perfect for my growth (which is probably Cancer – make sure they play Bring Me Sunshine at my funeral).
  9. I am comfortable looking in the mirror and saying, ‘I love you’. Particularly after I’ve just finished a bottle of Night Nurse.
  10. I am surrounded by love. Especially when the Ocado delivery man has been.
  11. I forgive myself and set myself free to go and make more heinous mistakes.
  12. Today is going to be a really good day. Unless someone texts me saying, “We need to talk” and then it’ll be ruined.
  13. I am active and alive apart from when I want to be asleep on the sofa with a hot water bottle up my jumper.
  14. Wellness is the natural state of my body, which is why I don’t bother with the gym.
  15. I still choose love over anger. I still choose happiness over sorrow. I still choose Big over Aidan.
  16. My day begins and ends with gratitude and joy. It’s only in the middle that I feel rage.
