I am Accepting

Past positive affirmations project posts: Introduction and I am Fit.

A couple of weeks ago, a close girlfriend and I were chatting about how often we plan out our lives, down to every detail. And, how devastated we get when the plans don’t go our way. When in all reality, those unplanned changes end up leading us to far greater things than we would have ever expected for ourselves.

Then, I said something profound that was directed at my friend, but was totally meant for my ears too.

Just roll with this change and see where it takes you. No good can come from over analyzing things. You deserve to be happy, to be loved. Although it may not be what you envisioned for yourself, trust that the universe has a space for you, and in that space you are safe.

Trust and accept that the moves the universe is making for you are supposed to happen and are good for your progress through this life!

Afterwards, I got to thinking – it’s not just the changes that occur in my life that I have a hard time accepting, it’s also my body image [at times], my personal limits, boundaries, dreams, goals, everything! As if I dig my heels in the ground at every turn.

With that, I knew exactly what my next positive affirmation post was going to be about.

I am accepting that …

  • What I’m passionate about changes as I grow and learn more about myself.
  • My body is screaming for a rest week.
  • I work much better reaching for my dreams, than chasing a goal.
  • Patience is a virtue I really, really need to work on.
  • Passion builds successful people.
  • It’s okay for life to go slow at times – sit back and relax, woman!

Positive Affirmations

Positive affirmations that help us to accept our path and ourselves:

  • My journey is my own and it’s beautiful.
  • I love and accept myself for who I am.
  • I accept my path.
  • I am open for positive change and adventures that will enlighten my journey.
  • I deserve all the good in my life and accept it now.
  • I am open to expanding my awareness and opening my senses to the opportunities that surround me.

Have you been ignoring something in your life because you’re not ready to accept the implications it may cause?

For me, it’s been taking a rest week. My body has been asking for one for weeks, but with an impending 1/2 marathon, I’ve ignored my body’s cries for rest. It’s just not worth it! So, regardless of what this will do to my training, I will be taking it slower this week. I’m confident my body will love me for it!

What affirmations could you, or do you, use to help yourself accept the changes in your life?

  1. I loved this post! It’s so so so true, everything you said. Sometimes I forget those positive words and find myself in a rut – its amazing what the right mind set can do for you.

  2. Great thought provoking question!
    I was totally like this this morning because my body was screaming “Rest day please!!” and I’m really proud of myself for listening.
    Your posts are so so inspiring to me, I always look over the postitve affirmations ones when I’m not having such a great body image day or needing a little courage to go0 after something I want :)

  3. Leanne,

    This is the BEST post I have ever read. I think I will read it over and over again every day for a while…

    It gives me strength. It gives me a positive feeling that it is GOOD TO BE ME, accept who I am, and enjoy the journey.

    Thank you so much Leanne. You are amazing.


    Have a great day!

  4. Nice post Leanne. At the rate you add new blog posts…hard to believe you are ever slow. I am enjoying your enthusiastic and fun approach to healthy eating.

  5. I must admit I am a bit envious of your dedication to your training program, you totally deserve a rest week! I on the other hand, need to jump back on the bandwagon and get back to the gym, which I have been neglecting for the past few weeks.

    As far as ignoring something in my life because I feared the consequences, I have been totally guilty of that the past few years… Seven years ago, I stumbled into a pretty good job working for a good company. A year and a bit into it, I knew the job made me unhappy and was dragging me down emotionally. I knew exactly what career would be fulfilling but didn’t act on it because I was paralyzed by fear: fear of what people would say, fear of not being successful at what I really wanted to do, fear of giving up my good salary, benefits and standard of living… Six months ago, I got really sick. After a few months on sick leave, I decided to resign from my job and go back to school. It is the best decision I ever made because it makes me happy. Every morning, I get up with a big smile on my face and can’t wait to start my day. Everyone I know has commented on how happy I look and on how my whole outlook has changed drastically.

    In the end,I would say that while planning is important, sometimes you just have to stop analyzing, and planning, and wondering and just go for it. I should have done this years ago!

    • Thank you for sharing your story, Sky. I’m on the exact same journey, which is why I started my blog. Although I can’t make the leap you have quite yet, it’s great know the grass really is greener on the other side. When do you graduate?

      • December. It’s not a very long program. I may specialize further after that, we’ll see.

        I know it’s hard to make such a big change but I’m sure you’ll figure out a way to make things happen for yourself. =)
