30 Days of Affirmations

30 days of affirmations redefine enough

According to Gary Chapman, there are 5 love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, quality time, and touch. According to Chapman, these "languages" communicate the way in which we give and receive love. For some, they need to be told they're beautiful while others may desire a gift. No love language is better than any other, it simply informs us that everyone has different needs.

Regardless of how many times I've taken the Love Language Quiz, words of affirmation is always my dominant love language...and I agree.  You can buy me gifts, wash my car, and give me a massage but I need to hear that you value me. It's just the way that I'm wired.

But what if I switched it up? Instead of desiring that from others, what if i gave it to myself? Wouldn't that be a radical act of self love? Would the desire to be affirmed by others change? Who knows? Maybe you should give it a try and find out.
