These affirmations for transformation are inspired by a few heart-to-heart conversations I had recently, and my own personal struggle. My intention is that you’re clearly reminded that you’re not only in the journey but that you ARE a journey. It’s challenging to embrace that sometimes, but ultimately soul-nourishing.
“One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.” — William Feather
Seeing life as an adventure makes sense to me, and that’s truly how I’d like to see, but it’s a challenging mindset to cultivate when you’re just plain fed up with the journey.
I experience bouts of frustration just like anyone else, and a few weeks ago I let comparison get the best of me. I realize now that when I start to compare my life on the inside with someone else’s life on the outside, a rabbit hole promptly appears and if I’m not paying attention, I fall right into it.
Though I’m grateful for how far I’ve come, I became even more frustrated with where I’m at.
Am I doing enough? Am I doing the right things? Why am I still barely getting by? Where is the time to think about the big picture, where I’d like to be in 5 years and how to get there?
In simple words, I had a slight meltdown.
Luckily, the breakdown, if I’m paying attention, always leads to a breakthrough.“There has to be a better way” is the declaration that lays the groundwork for a better way. Click To Tweet
These affirmations for transformation exist to remind you that it’s okay to be frustrated. You’re not the only one who sometimes feels upset and fed up with where you are in your journey. Honor that struggle and try not to turn the struggle into the enemy.
Your frustration is a gift… if you’re paying attention.
It takes honesty, awareness, and courage to look at your frustration head-on and acknowledge it for what it’s telling you. Maybe there’s something you need to stop doing, or maybe you need to reevaluate the reason why you’re doing what you’re doing.
There is a better way. Sometimes, we need to feel the frustration of the challenging route before we open our minds and our hearts to a new way of doing things.
Through vulnerability, I’m allowing myself to stop struggling with my struggles. I’m learning to let myself be exactly where I am, not berating myself for standing in this spot.
Every single one of these affirmations for transformation is an invitation for you to do the same. Pick your favorite and live by it so that when a rabbit hole suddenly appears before you, you’re awake enough to see it for what it is: a messenger of change.
Affirmations for Transformation to Read, Recite & Live By During Times of Confusion, Frustration, Struggle & Transition
1. I use frustration for transformation.
My frustration is a gift because I choose to turn it into a greater awareness of what’s right for me right now. I choose to build my life on the courage to be honest with myself. I choose a deeper depth and greater heights.
2. I am meant to be here.
I am meant to feel what I’m feeling. I am planted purposefully in this place. I got here on purpose and this is where I fuel myself with greater purpose. I am not meant to be anywhere else because it’s from here that I make lasting changes.“There is no calamity like not knowing what is enough.” — Lao Tzu, Tao Teh Ching tweet this
3. I am growing.
How I’m feeling is an indicator of growth. A journey of expansion is not without its struggles. I learn how to live better by confronting all the ways I don’t want to live. I am willing to grow through the dirt so I can unfold my petals and blossom into my highest truth.
4. I am destined for change.
I am meant for bigger things than a life of comfort and settling. I was born to change. I am ready to work with a supportive universe and co-create new and rich experiences. I am ready to live how I’ve never lived before.“No” sometimes just means “not yet.” Everything that you’re meant to experience arrives according to your soul’s readiness—not a moment sooner or later than it’s meant to. tell a friend
5. My life is on time.
Nothing is going to get here before I’m ready for it. What I’m working so hard for won’t arrive a moment sooner or later than it’s meant to. I choose to be here with purpose. I choose to trust that all of the things I’m hoping for will arrive when I’m most ready for them.
What are you frustrated with right now? Being able to express how you’re really feeling, whether out loud or through a creative process like art, movement or writing, is an invaluable tool for positive growth.
