Positive Affirmations


(my new DVF phone case, Gap Inc.'s founder, Don Fisher, "Look for the silver lining" idiom bangle by Kate Spade, Bethenny Frankel's amazing book, A Place of Yes. )

I will admit, in the past I have been quite the (excessive) Negative Nancy. Why, oh why, is it so easy to slip into that frame of mind? Especially when being positive is so much more fun and much better for your health? Since its no secret that the more positivity you have around, the more positive you become, I try and keep things around me that keep me focused on my goals and remind me of what's truly important in life. 

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” 
– Claude M. Bristol

What about you? What keeps you in a positive frame of mind? 


  1. I want that DVF case!!! Jealous!!

  2. I'm trying to focus on this too- especially on Mondays. Its easy to be a pile of laughs on Friday afternoon, but I've been enlisting the boyfriend to help me stay more upbeat and positive and fun during the week!

  3. Looking at past accomplishments and opportunities ahead always keeps me positive. There's nothing like keeping the goal in mind to keep you upbeat! That and love, love keeps me positive :) 

  4. When I get up in the morning I try to remind myself how lucky I am and usually that starts my day off on the right note :)

  5. I LOVE these positive inspirations!  To stay positive, I try to remember how lucky I am to have the day ahead of me!   Sounds silly, but some people don't even have that to look forward to!  Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!  :)

  6. Oh my gosh, lately I've been sort of broody. There's nothing wrong in my life but I just don't feel like putting in the effort to be cheerful- kind of lame I know....
    I think I'm going to head out to the bookstore today and pick up a copy of 'A Place of Yes'. I love Bethenny Frankel and especially enjoy her monthly column in Glamour. Plus I could use a little push into the right frame of mind again :) 

    Hope you have a fabulous day girly!

    p.s.  So jealous of that iPhone case- the colors & quote are perfection.
