Pinning Down Affirmations

Creating a set of affirmations for the Blast Off class was a difficult task for me to start doing. Yes, in my Morning Pages I tell myself all kinds of things, not all are positive affirmations. Some times I say You Jerk, why'd you do THAT?

Trying to come up with affirmations that didn't make me feel dopey and making cards to look at daily was causing me some resistance. Since beginning this course I think the classes, the readings, and the audios are kicking in. Today I had the time (made the time) and for some reason, felt the urge to jump in and do it.

I chose these four thoughts, something simple and do-able. I decided to try out the free paper I just got at the art supply shop this weekend. (Hmmm, abundance coming my way?)

First I wrote out my phrases in pencil then I played with the watercolors, thinking up designs as I read each card. The things I painted are the things I love looking at for my still life's. I think they make sense to me.

Will reading these help me move ahead? Maybe. I'm trying my best to keep resistance at the door so I can stay in the game. One step at a time.


  1. Beautiful affirmation cards. I could see you painting a whole deck of these for others to use also! xx

  2. Ooh, a whole deck? Yikes, Pat! LOL
