Affirmation Quotes

What are positive affirmations?

Affirmations are positive statements or quotes that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotage, negative thoughts, and negative beliefs about yourself. When you repeat them often and believe in them you can start to make positive changes.

How positive affirmations works  

It sends the message to our brain that we’re taking the necessary steps to change and transform our belief system… By replacing negative limiting beliefs with positive and empowering beliefs about ourselves…

So as a Transformation Life Coach, I’m super super big on positive affirmations. Because the consistent use, of positive affirmation, does lead to positive changes in our lives and positive beliefs about ourselves.. 

Three ways how I made affirmation work for me

The three ways that  I’ve used Affirmation during my transformation journey to help me transform from a negative belief system to a positive/empowering belief system about myself is…

1️ Visibility: I wrote my affirmations down and placed them where I could see them daily. 

2️ Consistency: I repeated them 3-4 times daily and make positive thoughts a part of my daily routine. 

3️ Personalized:  By replacing the I’m with my name…

Our affirmations are powerful forces

There is power in our words. We are always affirming something about ourselves and what we believe about our capabilities.
This can be positive or negative. We can tell ourselves that we are:
Terrible at something.
That we can’t.
That it’s not possible.
That we’re not smart enough.
That we’re not good enough.
That we’ll never achieve anything.

I will no longer allow other people’s opinions and judgment to hold me back from living a life of fulfillment and reaching my fullest potential.

I will no longer allow a fixed mindset to stop me from claiming my greatness.

I will no longer allow a limiting mindset to hold me back from the assignment I’ve already been approved for.

I have the power to break any limitation off of my life.

I am liberated from fear, judgment, and self-doubt.

I will not give up on myself.

I was born to manifest the glory of God.


Mistakes and setbacks are stepping stones to my success because I learn so much from them.

The past has no power over me because I am willing to learn and grow.

I have the power to create the transformation I most want in my life.

I welcome change.

I know that to change my life, I must change my thoughts and my habits.

I’m enough.

I’m worthy.

I am committed to working on my dreams and goals.

Stretch Beyond Your Comfort Zone

Succeeding in life requires us to stretch; stretching requires getting out of our comfort zones. It may feel uncomfortable at first or for a while, but in the end, it will all be worth it to leave our comfort zones and familiarity.

When we stretch; it gives us a sense of accomplishment,

Growth will take place;

Our self-confidence will grow;

We develop competency;

We break down barriers;

We acquire new levels;

And breakthroughs.

Pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zones will also develop self-trust and more life experiences.

Staying in our comfort zones we’re putting limitations on ourselves, and not only that we’re also setting ourselves up to stay in our tiny comfort zone boxes of life and familiarity.

This is one of my favorite poems, in fact, I’ve used it during my transformation journey…
It has taught me that if I stay in my comfort zones that’s all I will produce (comfort and limitations). And that nothing good comes from staying stuck in our comfort zone.
And not to say comfort is not good. But if we’re not willing to go after the things that our hearts desire. Then we’ll never have it. In other words, we have to be uncomfortable to be comfortable.
If you don’t go after what you want,
you’ll never have it.
If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.
If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” – Nora Roberts

What Is A Life-Fork

I can think of a few significant life forks myself and many things that would have never been possible had I not made the right choice. 

A life fork in the road is a metaphor. Based on a literal expression, deciding a moment in our lives or history when the choice of presented options is required, and once chosen, sometimes cannot be reversed.

Life-Forks are life-changing decisions that we have to make in our lives at some point. I believe that life forks bring us closer to our purpose and destiny. These life forks are in all of our paths. They are not just decisions that we make in our everyday lives. So if we’re making these decisions based on our comfort or emotions, we can miss our purpose or destiny. 

Life-Forks are not designed to make us feel comfortable but are intended to look past our feelings and emotions. These are decisions that require a sound mind. A life-fork event is one of those decisions that will become a significant event. And sometimes, choosing the right Fork can also be based on our experience. 

Life forks decisions require a sound mind because it is a significant event.
 Life forks are not like decisions that we make daily.

One of my life fork moment

Over 16 years ago, I lived in New York; my life was not in a good place; It was stagnant. So I came to a deciding moment in my life, stay in New York, where my family and friend were trying to make things work, or move to Georgia, where I have no blood relatives, no friends, a state that I knew nothing about I’ve only visited once.
 It was a defining factor in my life. I wanted a fresh start, so I  knew I had to do something I’d never done before, including getting out of my comfort zone. So I chose to move to Georgia. 
Fast forward 16 years later, I’ve formed some of the most incredible friendships,  I have found my passion and turned it into my purpose, and started my own transformation business, sisterhood, church family, a wonderful marriage, and an exceptional 11 years old daughter. 
So, in other words, what I’ve achieved is much greater than what I left behind. So the next time you’re faced with a  Life fork, know that Life forks are not designed to make us feel comfortable but are intended for us to look past our feelings and emotions. Life forks are also full of uncertainty.
1️⃣ Consider the outcome.
2️⃣ Think about your future.
3️⃣ Take some time to think it through.

What is Forgiveness

connections Paradise forgivness image
 Many times unforgiveness is the biggest piece of baggage that you can carry. Your baggage could be from a parent, friend, significant other, or coworker—anyone that was not there for you, abused you, took advantage of your trust, or harmed you emotionally. Often we hold resentment thinking we are somehow getting the other person back; however, they are not affected by our refusal to forgive, we are. 

What is forgiveness?

Forgiveness is releasing the feeling that the other person owes us something…. And freeing ourselves from anger. You may believe that forgiveness is challenging, but when you understand who it is truly for— you—then it becomes easier. When you practice forgiveness you will feel empowered. Forgiveness is freedom.

What forgiveness is NOT:

Many people do not forgive because they have a misperception about what forgiveness truly is. Therefore, let’s go over some of the things forgiveness is not.
• Forgiveness is NOT: Reconciliation with the person.
• Forgiveness is NOT: Living in denial about a person’s action(s).
• Forgiveness is NOT: Allowing the person to do the same behavior over and over again.
• Forgiveness is NOT: Having no consequence for a behavior.
• Forgiveness is NOT: Having the pain magically go away. 


“Every time we remember we judge 

ourselves and feel guilt over and over again.” ― Edgar Cayce


First, Forgive Yourself:

Many times, in our lives we make mistakes and we have to forgive ourselves for those mistakes. Most people have more resentment toward themselves than anyone else. There are two things that our minds unconsciously do when we feel guilty.
One:  is to try to repay or make right our mistake, often excessively. If we feel that there is nothing we can do to make something right, the Second option: we choose (unconsciously) is to punish ourselves. Take a moment to reflect on your actions (toward yourself or others) in the past that you may regret. 
• Are there any mistakes you made that you continue to beat yourself up for? If so, what? 
• How are you punishing yourself for it? 
• Are you directly or indirectly punishing others for it?  Your guilt is not going to undo what has happened. Even more importantly, holding onto this pain is causing further pain in your life. It is okay to let it go now. Release yourself from the burden of carrying it with you. 
I forgive myself for:
If any of your self-grievances are towards others, consider expressing an apology through a letter, email, phone call, or in person. (Remember not to be attached to the results since this is about you, not them. Do not expect to be forgiven.) 

Next, Forgive Others 

Write it down: Make a list of people you need to forgive and what you want to forgive them for. Include what you need to forgive yourself for. 

Reflect: Acknowledge the pain that the lack of forgiveness (on your part) has caused you and how it currently impacts your life. Is it more painful than the actual experience? 


Learn the lessons:

What are some things that you can learn from the situations? Are there any positives that have or can come out of the experiences? What lessons could the other person(s) have learned? 

Let go:

Release any expectations from anyone else. This includes expectations of forgiveness or apologies from others or changes in others’ behaviors. Forgiving doesn’t mean accepting unacceptable behavior, but if the person does not change it is your responsibility to free yourself from the pain of resentment and do what’s right for you, even if it means cutting ties with the person. What expectations do you release? 


Express Forgiveness:

ONLY if you feel it would be beneficial to you, to consider expressing forgiveness to another through a letter, email, phone call, or in person. (Remember not to be attached to the results since this is about you, not them. Do not expect an apology.) 
Live and be free! Forgiveness is about personal power. A life well lived is your best revenge; therefore take your power back and focus on your desires. Don’t do it because, “You’ll show them,” do it because you want to live your life with freedom and happiness.
Forgiveness is often an opportunity to learn, grow, and heal. You may even find that the negative experiences were blessings in disguise if you can create a place for forgiveness and acceptance in your heart. Remember, forgiveness is 100 percent your responsibility. Only you can unlock the door to your prison and shift your life from limitation to freedom and joy.


Living with unforgiveness is like drinking poison every day and waiting for someone else to die.
