Get yourself...

An affirmation notebook.

...don't laugh. (although, I'll admit, I did when I first heard about it)

My boss recommended that I get one.

It's a place where I can put down little affirmations about myself.  I had a particularly bad week last week and began to think it might not be such a silly idea.  You know, get all kinds of positive things out there in my universe.  After all, I love inspirational posts on Pinterest, and sometimes go there to try and motivate myself.  As a matter of fact, one such pin is currently my work computer background.

Work computer background: She believed she could so she did

So, on Friday, my sweet husband took me to Target just to buy something because he knew I was having a bad week.  I love all things paper: stationery, wrapping supplies, notebooks, you name it and I'm there! So, when he said I could get anything, I went straight to the notebook aisle and I picked up this little beauty.

She's a dreamer, a doer, a thinker.  She sees possibility everywhere.

I think it looks like Kate Spade, and for a stellar 4 bucks, quite the deal! I decided to make it an affirmation notebook; to heed my brilliant boss's advice.


I started writing things in it to affirm myself and to motivate me each day.  I re-read what I've already written, and I write new things.  And so far, it's really helping.  This week has been way better, and I'm a lot more positive.

Affirmation book, affirmative!!


  1. Such a good idea! I'm not so good at sticking to traditional journaling, but I think I could do something like this!

  2. Okay so I was cleaning out my sideboard in my dining room tonight (because I got a lot of great crystal & cut glass serving pieces from my grandparents) and found two little mini journals, both empty. I'm thinking affirmation journal, but it feels a little awkward to get started. Did you feel that way?
