Positive Affirmations for the Black Family

January 31, 2018

January 31, 2018

I’ve got to tell you that when I was going through some of my most unhappy times, I prayed. I always pray. But when I found it difficult to get motivated to go to work in the morning because I knew my calling was someplace else and change was coming but had not yet arrived, listening to affirmations got me through, kept me positive and reduced my stress levels.

Even today when I feel like I’m not motivated or am having a particularly bad day, I’ll go to YouTube and pull up my favorite affirmation. When I fall into a negativity fog, I listen to affirmations and it works. I created Positive Affirmations for the Black Family after seeing a viral video of a father empowering his daughter in the bathroom mirror with affirmations. I thought, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all parents could have these types of affirmations for their children and say them together as a family?”

“Listening to affirmations got me through, kept me positive and reduced my stress levels.”

I created this affirmation just for you. It’s 2-hours long so that you don’t have to restart it day-after-day. When you’re feeling down about work, or if your child had a bad day at school, play it and repeat to help keep you and your family strong. I present to you, “Positive Affirmations for the Black Family.”
