self love affirmations

Self Love is promoted so often nowadays. But what is self love? Besides all the affirmations (and yes, at the end of this post you’ll find 111 self love affirmations!).

For me, self love is accepting myself as I am. With all my strengths and weaknesses, all my talents and inabilities, all my preferences and dis-likings.

This is me, Angelika:

One things I learned about me is that I love creating things. I am not good at DIY projects, but I love creating new things with technology.

So here are a couple of things I created:

wrap yourself in a scarf with 111 self love affirmations!
put this pillow with self love affirmations on your couch!

Some time ago I wanted to start self love journaling with prompts. I created this self love journal (available on Amazon*):

my Self Love Journal

What is different about this notebook?

I’ve seen a lot of self love journals with prompts.

But somehow, those journal ideas did not fit me. Or my writing was too much to fit into the blank spaces. Or it was meant for just 21 days.

After researching I decided to create my own self love journal. Filled with mostly blank pages, but with 111 affirmations for self love journaling.

This is what a page looks like:

What I like about my self love journal is that it has journal prompts for adults, but it leaves a lot of space for your own ideas.

If you do not know how to start, these are some ideas:

How to start a self care journal

  • choose one page per day, look at the affirmation and just start writing: do you believe that affirmation about yourself? And if not: how can you start allowing yourself to believe it?
  • You can use this notebook as an self love art journal. Just fill each page with your drawings about the affirmation on top!
  • You can choose to forget the affirmations on top and just journal. Choose your own self love topic depending on what’s on your mind!

Basically, you are free to do whatever you want with the journal. If you choose to write neatly every day, do that. If you choose to write rants and burn the pages afterwards, do that.

Self love is about accepting yourself as you are. With all your strengths & weaknesses, all your talents & inabilities, all your preferences & dis-likings.

In addition to the paper journal, I decided to create two audios with all the self love affirmations. So you can not only write about self love, but you can listen to those affirmations. Listening to them again and again will help you to believing them!

Listen to affirmation quotes

You can listen to “I am …”-affirmations on the Insight Timer app (try it! Insight Timer is a massive and wonderful meditation app!)

Or, I find it really powerful to listen to “You are …”-affirmations. Honestly, it feels wonderful to have someone else tell me how lovely I am.

All the affirmations in the audios are also in the Self Love Journal*:

If you want to know what is in the journal or the audios, here you are – the order varies, but the affirmations are the same:
