50 More Positive Things To Tell Yourself Every Day

One of the most popular posts that is regularly viewed on this blog is called 

50 Positive Things to Tell Yourself Every Day.

The post lists 50 positive affirmations and is designed to try and promote a positive attitude. Because of its popularity, I thought it might be an idea to write a sister post: So here are 50 more positive thoughts!

We all have difficult days, some worse than others, and although I don’t pretend these words can change your life overnight, they can make you stop and think for a few minutes, and those few minutes may change your attitude, perspective or mood, which in turn, can improve your day. Like its sister post, it is short and snappy so will only take you a few minutes to read. I have highlighted in bold my favourites, but I hope you like them all. No doubt, some will speak to you more than others.

As always, if you have any of your own to add, particularly ones that work for you, please do let me know in the comments. I can never have enough positivity! 

1. This too will pass.

2. Time heals.

21. Forgiveness will set me free from feelings of bitterness and resentment.

22. I will treat every day as a fresh start.

45. I am not a victim. I will not think of myself as one or allow myself to be treated like one.

46. I will believe in myself and speak to myself as I would my best friend.

47. I can’t control other people’s actions, but I can control your reaction to them.

48. I will not waste my time thinking that things “could have been different”. There is no point in wondering what could, or should, have been, there is only what they are.

49. Worrying has never, and will never, change the outcome.

50. I will remember that the way I am treated by others is a reflection of how I feel about myself.

Life is a series of ups and downs, but I’m a firm believer that it’s how you respond in difficult times that really defines the type of person you are. When you can improve your ability to deal with the tough times, you not only live a happier life, but you also grow as person. Stay strong. Believe in yourself… and remember The Universe wants you to be happy. ❤️

  1. I totally agree with your thoughts on gratefulness and forgiveness. Two huge positive things we can do for ourselves. …and I tell myself “Never give up”. I want to accomplish something, it might take longer, it might be harder, I might fall off my little “wagon”, but I’m going to get back on and never give up!

  2. A bit late reading this as I was in Dubai visiting my son and his family but well worth the read Karen,I always enjoy your blogs, they put me in a good mind set. I must try and stop overthinking and worrying though. x

    • Thanks so much Dee … it’s so hard to stop overthinking – but it can be done with practice … thanks for reading as always ❤️
