Need a reminder to keep shining your light? That’s exactly what these holiday affirmations are for! Simply put, they’re triggers for joy, love, and peace—standing in stark contrast to the stress that too often pervades the holiday season. If you hold these affirmative statements close to your heart, I think you’ll remember how much light you have to give.
“Truly it is glorious, our being here.” — Rainer Maria Rilke
Through the repetition of positive affirmations, you’re setting the tone not only for how you want your future to be but for how you would like to live right now. Repeating a meaningful affirmation is a wonderful way to live life according to YOU instead of merely walking through the world responding to what’s around you. You’re pretty powerful in that way, standing in your own full presence.
Don’t doubt how powerful your presence can be. How you live your life is going to inspire someone and, in any case, it will contribute something to the world that was not already there.
I thought a little cheer to our weekly affirmations would be welcome, so I created five easy-to-recite declarations that we could carry with us anywhere we go and everywhere we go. Whatever the holidays bring, may we bring our most enthusiastic, authentic, compassionate selves—I think these holiday affirmations can help with that.
5 Welcome Holiday Affirmations: Peace, Prosperity, Contribution, Love, Happiness
1. I am a peaceful world.
I offer peace wherever I go because I am creating a peaceful world within my soul. With each mindful step, my inner world expands into the world around me. I walk with intention into every room. I bring my own energy. Like a field covered in snow, I cover everything with a blanket of peace. I cherish what I carry inside of me.Everything that's inside of you is a gift, when shared, capable of inspiring the same kind of courage in someone else. Click To Tweet
2. I am so full, my cup runneth over.
I am an intricate part of a neverending cycle of renewal; life is being made new, and I am making life new. I am boundless, timeless, and always at home. I was created to create, and my possibilities, too, have no end. I breathe life into everything I do and think about because I am full of life. There is so much I’m grateful to have and to know—I share my gifts with everyone, everywhere I go.
3. I am a powerful force for good in the world.
I am fueled by the desire to serve a larger cause and a deeper connection. I know that I matter and I wish to spread that compassion in all directions. When I offer to help, I do so from a place of “already enough.” When I speak my mind, I do it with heart. Doing good deeds is not a chore but a joy; I leave only positive energy in my wake.Your presence is a powerful spectacle in a world of absentees. Click To Tweet
4. I am free to follow love at all times.
Nothing can keep me from my loving nature. Loving myself and others for every reason and for no reason at all is how I craft a more loving world for us all. I follow in the footsteps of love, knowing that I am living from intention instead of whim. I choose to be an expression of love in even the smallest ways and places. There are so many ways to love, and this is how I choose to live.Loving others is a decision best made ahead of time—before you find a reason to love or to not love them. Click To Tweet
5. My happiness is one of the greatest gifts I can give.
Through my own happiness, I can offer the world the best of who I am and what I have to give. Happiness is my fuel for a wonderful life. I focus on getting happy before I think. I get happy before I speak. I prioritize happiness before I create a reason why it’s worth being happy. Then I go out into the world and give what I have to give.“It takes courage to open ourselves up to joy.” @BreneBrown Click To Tweet
