This is Day 11 of “Say Good Things February.”
Do you honor your body? My answer for you follows:
You honor your body. You protect your body by keeping it in safe and healthy environments. You exercise regularly. You eat healthy foods. You drink plenty of water. You are healthy. Everything in your body works as it is supposed to work. You go to the doctor for physical checkups at least once a year. You exercise your brain. You have a sense of well-being about your body. You are thankful for your body. You protect your body.
Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.

You are thankful for your body.
I discovered after I kept saying these things over and over again for days, weeks, and months, they became true because of actions I took.
Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. Believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s true. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your body.
Thank you, Joan Reid for suggesting that I write affirmations for “You honor your body.”
In my experience, I found it easier to go for a physical exam when my doctor didn’t retire or move to another area. I am thankful that I am blessed with good health.
When I do get sick, it irks me. I have to remember how lucky and healthy I am to only get sick every three years, when others battle illness 24 hours a day, 365 1/4 days a year. Loving myself when I’m sick sometimes needs a booster. If you’re like me you say to yourself, “If I had done this, it wouldn’t have happened this way. If I had done that, it wouldn’t have happened that way.”

These people didn’t let their weaknesses define who they were or who they could be. They believed in themselves. They believed they could be more than doctors, family, friends, or strangers said they could be. If their beliefs did this for them, I figure our beliefs can do it for us, too.
People told the Wright Brothers their plane would never fly. What did the Wright Brothers believe? They believed it would fly and didn’t change their minds even though time after time of trying were failures. They continued to make things better and brainstorm new ideas each time they failed. They kept their belief that their airplane would fly.
Whatever it is that little voice inside you keeps saying, “You can’t do that. What’s wrong with you?”
Here’s what to say to that little voice, “Get out of my head. I’m going to do it no matter what you say. I believe I have the power to figure this out. I’m going to do it. Then set your affirmation: I invent ______________. I am a _______________. I have a ________________.
Listen to that gut feeling that says to you, “You can do it.” I believe that gut feeling is God talking to you.
Remember these words from the Bible: “Ask and you shall receive. (Matthew 7:7) Believe and it will be given to you.” Matthew 21:22
I hope that you find that using affirmations gives you a stronger belief in you, your skills, abilities, and positive experiences. Thanks for reading my blog. I hope you’ll share this post with others. Please ask questions and tell me your experience with honoring and respecting your body in the comment area. I’d love to hear from you!
