Happy Valentine’s Day, Champion! Feel loved!
According to psychologist and author Sherrie Campbell, “Self-validation is the process of affirming your own worthiness.” In other words, it’s the recognition and acceptance of your own thoughts, feelings, and experiences as valid. It’s about giving yourself permission to be exactly who you are—flaws and all. If you’re looking for a little self-love and encouragement, read on for six self-validating statements you should believe with all your heart. You know the verbiage because you say these words to everyone else in your NOW all the time. Especially true TODAY, right? Be my Valentine! XOXO
1. “I AM ENOUGH”
This is perhaps the most important self-validating statement of them all. It’s a declaration of self-worth that tells the world (and yourself) that you are enough—exactly as you are. Whenever you find yourself doubting your abilities or questioning your worthiness, remind yourself that you are enough.
Your value doesn’t come from what you achieve or fail to achieve. It doesn’t come from what other people think of you. You are valuable simply because you exist in a uniqueness that nobody ever has or ever will replicate. You are amazing, unique, one-of-a-kind. You are worthy of love and respect, just as you are. You always have been and always will be. This NOW journey is all about discovering THAT and believing it…becoming more.
2. “I DESERVE LOVE AND HAPPINESS”
We all make mistakes. It’s part of being human. But too often, our Mental Plane dwells on our mistakes and allows them to define us. We beat ourselves up and tell ourselves that we’re not good enough. We believe that our mistakes reflect our worth as a person. But that is simply not true. Our mistakes do not determine our worth. We determine our worth during self-care retreat within time and journal work time.
So instead of beating yourself up, try telling yourself these three words: “I am not my mistakes.” It’s a simple phrase, but it can be incredibly powerful. It can help you to accept yourself, even when you’ve made a mistake. It can help you to move on and to learn from your mistakes. And it can remind you that you are more than your mistakes; you are a worthy and deserving person the world needs.
3. “I AM NOT MY MISTAKES”
We all make mistakes—it’s an inevitable part of life. But our mistakes do not define us; they are simply lessons we learn along the way. Instead of beating yourself up over your past errors, use them as opportunities for growth and self-improvement. And next time, try not to make the same mistake twice!
4. “I AM STRONG”
No matter how weak or vulnerable your Mental Plane self-talk may make you feel at times, know that you have an inner strength that will see you through any challenge or adversity you face in your new NOW. Draw on that self-care inner strength when things get tough. Your true self will never let you down, but you must listen and trust the journey.
5. “I AM NOT ALONE”
In good times and bad, remind yourself that you are never truly alone—there is always someone who loves and cares for you (even if it’s just your furry best friend). I had a cockatiel for 17 years who provided immense comfort and love, sitting on my shoulder during the day, snuggling on my chest during tv movie times, and special beak-to-lip snuggles before bed. Her name was Robirda and I called her BOBBIE for short! Every love source is valid.

6. “I AM CAPABLE OF GREATNESS”
Last but not least, remind yourself regularly that you have limitless potential—the sky really is the limit! Whether your dreams are big or small, know that you have what it takes to make them a reality for your new NOW. After all, if others have done it before, why can’t you do it too? So, retreat within to know your NOW, and then go out and achieve greatness!
If Mental Plane negative self-talk is holding you back from living your best life, it’s time for some self-love and encouragement! By reading and believing these six self-validating statements, you can start building up your confidence, NOW, so that tomorrow’s new NOW can feed your soul and change the world from your inner abundance. Remember, you are enough… Always!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your loved ones. Thank you for being in my NOW.
