On days where I feel doubtful of who I am and what direction my life is headed, I remind myself that I’m worth the time and investment, no matter how much. I say these things to myself as a mental note that I’m worth the progress I’m making.
- I made it through today, I can make it through tomorrow.
- Productivity is a tool to grow, not a tool for competition.
- I deserve all the love that I receive.
- I am not measured by my failures, but by the strength in my attempts.
- I am enough.
I find that keeping this in mind helps me stay focused when distracted by insecurities and uncertainty, or when I feel I don’t have enough to offer. Thinking positive also gives me a better mood and lowers my day-to-day stress levels.
