These positive affirmations for moms will help you speak powerful truths over yourself each day! Being a mom is the most rewarding calling in the world. It’s perhaps also one of the most exhausting callings in the entire world!
On top of that, as moms, we’re often plagued with self-doubt, constantly wondering if we’re good enough, equal to the task, and doing all that we should be doing to serve our family. To push back against all of the fatigue, stress, and doubt, it can be incredibly powerful to speak positive statements about ourselves.
Each affirmation is intended to help you focus on what matters most and encourage yourself when you’re exhausted and feel like you’re not winning. Not only are these affirmations positive, but they’re also true! The truth is always different than what we perceive it to be. When reality and perception don’t line up, we have to stop and make an inward adjustment.
What are Positive Affirmations?
Positive affirmations are uplifting phrases that you tell yourself. Whether you realize it or not, you are already telling yourself things about who you are. Some of the things you’re internalizing are positive and some are negative.
The negative things we believe about ourselves pull us down, zap our energy, and usually aren’t even close to the truth. The feelings of guilt, not being enough, or being less than can eat away at a mom’s mind and heart if they go unchecked.
The best way to combat the negative self-talk bouncing around your head is to intentionally speak positive words about yourself to yourself. Negativity springs up daily, so these positive affirmations for moms are a powerful tool to help you set the right tone for your day, each and every day.
How to use Positive Affirmations for Moms
The best way to use these encouraging statements is to make sure you don’t forget them. Make them visible and easily accessible!
A few easy ideas would be to write the statements on sticky notes or notecards and place them around your home! Or write out one statement each day in a journal and reflect on that.
I keep a simple picture frame like this one in my bathroom so that I can add something encouraging each day to remind myself!
