21 Powerful Affirmations That Will Connect You To Your BEST Self

“An affirmation is a phrase that reinforces positive beliefs or behaviors. The best ones are a statement of what we want and are phrased in the present moment” – Gala Darling, Radical Self Love

The words we speak create our reality, so said some great human some long, long time ago. And what they said, in my experience, is truly bang on! It is not only the words we tell each other, but the words we tell ourselves that determine the quality of our lives. If you’re someone who is too hard on yourself, use kinder words in your self-talk. If you’re someone who feels easily guilty for putting your happiness over other people’s, cheer yourself on. (You’re allowed to be your first priority!)


And what better way to express your aspirations than creating a list of affirmations that focus on making you feel good? These 21 from Gala’s babe of a book, Radical Self Love, will act as the perfect starter-kit to connect you with your best self. Grab some paper, write these down and tape them on your mirror, work desk and slide one in your wallet! Or, if you love the GIFs below, bookmark this page and revisit it whenever you need a loud reminder of the legit fireball that you are.
