Own Your Awesome.

When I returned home from the office today, I discovered my "Own Your Awesome" card deck had arrived in the mail!

"Own Your Awesome," is a "52 Card Deck of Powerful Affirmations." I love using affirmation cards in my work with teens. Sometimes teens are hesitant to open up during therapy. I find that using affirmation cards is an easy way to break into deeper topics with teens. I often begin sessions by asking my teen clients to pick one affirmation card. Once we each pick one card we discuss how this affirmation relates to whatever may be going on their lives.

I thought I'd share some of the affirmations from my new deck with you. Enjoy! 

I am present to all of the miracles that show up in my life everyday. My life itself is a miracle.

I give up freely what is no longer serving me. I release it to create space for what inspires me. 

I am the ONLY one responsible for my own happiness. My happiness is in my hands. I create it. 

I matter. 

I choose gratitude as my attitude. 

I let go of expectations. I create powerful possibilities.
