What do you guys think about positive affirmations? I like the idea, using a positive statement to reinforce a bright outlook and good self-esteem. Though, I'm not really a fan of thinking positive affirmations will trigger action. Is that the pessimist in me? Of course it can't hurt to have a reminder, be it visual or audible, but I'm not so sure it's a command. Does that make sense? I guess my point is: Don't think that repeating a phrase will change your life.
I'm done being a Debbie Downer, jeez -- that was weird, right? I should explain...
There was a period in my life that I considered writing something on my bathroom mirror, so every morning and night I'd have a tangible reminder of something good. The problem was I couldn't ever figure out what to write. I had the same problem when I purchased a necklace/locket -- I couldn't decide what would be significant enough to put inside it that I left it empty. Ooof. That certainly says something about me and I'm afraid it ain't good.
But now I realize that it doesn't have to be THE statement, it can be any statement. Decisions aren't life and death, things aren't set in stone and I should fill my locket with whatever I'm thinking now and can change it later if I like.

I want these prints. Both of them. The first one would live in my bedroom and the second in my office. Perfect, right? And if I don't think they're perfect in a year, I can change them. [Look at me being all positive and stuff.]
