What if affirmations could meet you right in the middle of your mess? Affirmations used to leave me feeling like I was always falling short. Not quite good enough. Why couldn't I make myself worthy? Then I realized I could craft grittier, more perfectly-imperfect affirmations. Messy ones. Ones that met me right where I was, no matter how down in the dumps or frozen with anxiety I may be in the moment. I'm sharing these affirmations with you for free, in hopes that they lift your spirits, and meet YOU right where you need encouragement. Print, cut, and paste wherever will bring you uplift--your art journal, planner, even up on your mirror! These affirmations were inspired by and are offered as a bonus in my class, As I Am: art journal affirmations for anxiety and depression. Join me there if you want to try creating messy affirmations of your own, through three soothing and comforting mixed media projects.
