Positive affirmations are phrases that we say to ourselves to build confidence and train our minds. They are bold, clear, positive, and stated in the present tense: "I am confident", "I am happy", "I am perfectly me", "I am smart", "I am strong", "I am blessed", etc. They work on the subconscious mind, which is most receptive early in the morning and late at night, because at those times, the conscious filters are not fully in place. Experts recommend writing out your affirmations, as though they are already a reality in your life, and saying them out loud several times a day. I've used index cards on my dash board, bathroom mirror, refrigerator, desk, etc. for years. Now I also have them on my socks! :) My wish is that these socks help people realize how wonderful they are and how much God-given potential they have, and that they can achieve their dreams. I have a dream of many less fortunate children who may not even be old enough to read, but will wear the socks...and subconsciously will have seen 'I am smart' so many times, that they believe it about themselves from the start. We are already donating socks to non-profit organizations, and are connecting with more opportunities to do that. Thanks for visiting this website and this blog. You are awesome!
