This scrapbooking idea is to create a page about one of the positive affirmations you’ve been trying to instill in yourself.
Do you have a series of affirmations you repeat to yourself on a daily or very frequent basis? Affirmations are short positive statements usually written in the present tense. For example, “I forgive myself and others easily”, “I have the courage to pursue my dreams”, “I am safe and loved by others”.
You might like to pick one of your favorite or most relevant affirmations and create a layout based on that. If you like, you might also want to scrapbook a page on your latest list of affirmations.
Let’s say you’ve been reciting “I am an authentic being loved by others” for a period of months. Sometime later, you realized that you’ve gained more confidence and become more comfortable in showing your true self when you were with others. Soon after, you decided it’s time for you to adopt a new affirmation.
If you’ve scrapbooked about your first affirmation, 5 years later at least you have a page to remind you that once you were concerned about not being your authentic self, and this was the affirmation you used to build up your confidence in embracing your original self.
For me, I have this affirmation “I claim my own power and I lovingly create my own reality” by Louise Hay up on my wall for months. It’s now replaced by other affirmations and I think it’s time for it to go into one of my scrapbook pages.
