17 DAILY AFFIRMATIONS FOR DANCERS IN EATING DISORDER RECOVERY

Good Morning! Happy Monday!


It’s the start of a new day, a new week–which may hold its own challenges and obstacles. Guaranteed. What I need most, and some of you can relate, is something positive to say to myself. Something that can easily be stored in my brain, hopefully towards to front.


Affirmations. I did them in treatment with my therapist and groups. Right now, I’m looking at an old handout from when I was at Remuda Ranch back in 2002. A plain sheet of white paper, wrinkled at the corners, clear tape on the top where it must have been hanging onto a mirror, lists 17 statements. Truths about my body, and myself. They’re powerful, positive and so desperately needed to penetrate my doubting heart.


Here they are:


I Accept My Changing Body.


My Body Deserves The Nutrition It Receives.


I Respect My Beautiful Body.


My Body Is Not the Enemy.


I Love My Body.


I Will Treat My Body As My Best Friend.


My Body Does Not Define Me.


My Body Is A Gift From God.


I Am Worthwhile And Lovable Just Breathing.


I am Worthy & Deserving Of A Good Life.


It Is Perfectly Ok To Be Imperfect.


I Accept All My Feelings And Express Them In A Healthy Way.


I Am A Strong And Powerful Women In Recovery.


I Have A Voice And Deserve To Be Heard.


I Release Things And Ideas That Do Not Serve Me.


I Am A Unique And Precious Human Being.


I Will Do What It Takes, I Will Persevere, I Am Worthwhile, I Will Face My Fear!


Keep Recovery and Dance On!
