We've been chatting about some basic mindset things and how practicing them can help us out in this mom life. So today, let's get a little clarity on what those things are.
Intention is the state of mind that you operate from. This is the way that you approach experiences. Intentions require thoughtfulness and planning. Your intention answers the question, "who am I"?
Affirmations teach you to believe that something is true. Affirmations are like instructions for your thoughts and beliefs. I recently heard a great teacher say that you think with your brain, but your brain doesn't think. A Biblical proverb says that a man is what he thinks.
While both of these are great, these are the mindsets and practices behind the actions.
Intention + Affirmation = Mindset
Mindset + Choice = Action
Action + Repetition = Life
Let's check out 30 wonderful intentions and affirmations!
