Challenge #11: Scrap an Affirmation

Hello there!

We are changing things up this month... we are digging deep with this next challenge!

But first, let's talk about our generous sponsor this month.  A huge thank you to Paper Issues who are back again this month sponsoring Challenge YOUrself with one of their Swag Bags!!  If you haven't seen these yet, you're in for a treat!  It's a bag full of goodiness... a bit of this, a bit of that, a bit of everything you need!  Click HERE if you want it now!
Thank You Paper Issues!!

Please stop by the Paper Issues Blog and Facebook and say Hello!


Now onto our challenge:

Do you find that positive self-talk helps you feel better in difficult situations? Do you seek inspirational quotes to get you motivated? 

Positive affirmations are a great way to empower your life.   You become what you think and what you believe.  Your thoughts create your reality.  To affirm is to have an intention, a statement.  It is recognizing and asserting YOUrself.
