15 confidence building affirmations

Welcome, welcome, I have some exciting news to share with you. I have decided to post three times a week! Yes, you heard correctly, three times. How exciting right? I will be posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I am trying something new, so I hope that you like it. Makeup Monday’s will be dedicated for makeup, makeovers, giveaways, tutorials, monthly favorites, and all things beauty related. Work it Wednesday is all things inspirational, goal digging, organizational tips, and more lifestyle topics. That finally brings me to Fashion Friday!

Today’s Work it Wednesday is all about self-love. I know that having self-confidence can be a struggle, trust me, been there and don’t want to go back. So here are 15 affirmations that you can read to yourself as often as you would like, just to give your confidence a little boost and feel better about yourself. You don’t need to depend on someone else to tell you how amazing you are. What better person to tell you then well, you?

A Celebration List

Work, work, clean house, some more work. Ugh does it ever end? How come I have been working for the last three days, and still feel like I haven't accomplished anything?? I have crossed some things off of my list, so why is there so much left? It's because I am looking at my list all wrong. You heard me, all wrong I tell you!

Every Monday morning I sit down with my coffee, listen to a podcast, and write a list of everything that I need to accomplish for the week. That's normal right? As the week goes by, I will cross off everything that I have done on that list. Well when I look at that list at the end of the week, I get so pissed off at myself when I look at everything that is still unaccomplished.

One morning while I was sipping my amazing coffee, I was listening to the Style Your Mind podcast, hosted by Cara Alwill Leyba. She explained that she writes a celebration list. At the end of every day or every week, she will write down everything that she had accomplished during that time. So instead of kicking herself, she celebrates herself for all of her hard work.

What a brilliant idea! I will make two separate lists, one for everything that needs to be done for the week, and another for all of my celebrations! If I keep throwing out negative thoughts out into the universe about my list, guess what the universe is going to hit me with?

So from now on, I will be writing a celebration list to go along with every to do list!

5 PODCASTS THAT WILL INSPIRE YOU

If you don’t know what a podcast is, or have never listened to one, then you have no idea what you are missing out on. A podcast is basically an audio blog with all sorts of different categories! There are podcasts from art to TV & film.

My favorite types of podcasts are the entrepreneurial motivational ones. I love to listen to them when I am cleaning my house when I am getting ready, and when I am driving. Those are the times that I am really focusing and paying attention. For the most part, I love listening to music, but there are times when I need a pick me up and need to listen to something different. These five podcasts are ones that I know that I can count on helping out in some type of way. If I am ever feeling uninspired, they will bring back that spark that was running just a little low.

So with out further ado, here are the podcasts that have been changing my perspective and my life

Cara Alwill Leyva is a bestselling author, a life coach, and the host of Style Your Mind Podcast. She answers questions about being an entrepreneur and interviews some of the baddest bitches when it comes to business. She is all about women coming together and helping each other rise up. She gets behind the scenes of how the business became about and how it has risen.
