Top Affirmations

So lately I’ve been more into affirmations and trying to manifest. I want to put it out there I don’t believe in a higher power but I do think if you have a better mindset better things happen. I’m planning now and then to share some of my favorite affirmations with you guys!

If you don’t know what affirmations are, they’re like quotes you say to yourself, out loud usually so you’re able to manifest the thoughts into your life. I do believe if you think a certain way you can change your life and make it better and more positive. I don’t believe every manifestation works or can happen. Just having more
positive things to say about yourself to yourself has helped me in trying to stay positive in my life right now when things aren’t too positive.

How I manifest and find my affirmations: I have a few apps that I try to remember to open daily and read affirmations. I’ll also see them on Twitter, or look them up myself online. I say them out loud 3 times. 3 is just like my number in life, don’t know why. Like everything I do is only in a pattern of 3. Of course, you don’t have to it like this, this is just what I do. And not all of these are going to relate to everybody but they do relate to me.

But here are 10 of my current favorites!

1. My fears of tomorrow are simply melting away.

2. Every single day something good happens to me.

3. I forgive myself for all I have done and set myself free.

4.I see the good in every situation.

5. I trust in my own ability to provide for myself. I have all the qualities it takes to be successful.

6. My successes or failures do not define me. They grow me.

7. I alone judge myself and set my own standards.

8. I am generous and giving because I am blessed.

9. My relationship is becoming stronger, deeper and more stable each day.

10. I acknowledge my self worth; my confidence is soaring.

Thanks for spending the time to manifest and read each one with me! I hope everyone has an amazing day 💕

Fall Decor Around My Apartment

So I’m not to big into decor mainly because I suck at it. But I went out today to grab some small things. I’ll let you know where I got them if you’re interested at all!

I got these both at target! The pumpkin one was 10 dollars and the orange one was 15 I think. I’m gonna wash them first so they’re still all bundled up. I don’t know how much the sign was but I think 15.

I got all of this at Hobby Lobby all for around 20-25 dollars. I already had the vase it’s from Target.

So I got all of this at Walmart! I went there for a whole different blog post but I couldn’t find what I needed. The vase was empty so I filled it with smaller decor. They were all about a dollar. The center piece was I think 13. And there’s also small fall ornaments for 2 bucks.

And of course a candle holder from Bath and Body Works! But that’s all I have. If you have a decor post I want some inspiration.

My experience with Talkspace Online Therapy

So in July, I started Talkspace. I’ve been having probably some of the worst anxiety in my life, and I don’t have the time to go to regular therapy. So after some research on a few different apps, I went with Talkspace. It was about 260 dollars a month, for me that’s a little more than I wanted to spend. During this time I did not know that they took insurance so that parts on me. I had it for 2 months, which is over 500 dollars.

So I made an account, took all the assessments, or whatever they call them. They matched me with 3 therapists and I got to pick my own. I picked one lady and started my therapy. It was horrible and I got no help. It was not a good match for me. It seemed very automated, almost like I googled a symptom and they gave me the most simple response. I wish I took screenshots but I didn’t.

One thing I remember talking about was I have trouble falling asleep. I’ve pretty much always had this problem since I was a kid. But it’s been super bad lately. As we talked through this problem all she told me was to not use my phone before bed, which yes I know but I’m guilty of. And not to drink caffeine through the day which I don’t.

I have trouble calming myself down during attacks. And when we talked about this she offered things I’ve already tried. And she said I need to keep trying, but if I know something doesn’t work, I would like different options.

At this point, I switched the therapist. I went through another assessment and picked a new therapist. This one did go a lot better in the beginning. She has helpful tricks and seemed to listen and want to help.

I know that therapists see multiple people at once, and Talkspace gives you the option to video chat with your therapist. I never took advantage of this. But I found out the therapist just gets told someone is trying, not who. Which to me seems weird, like I would want them to be more prepared to talk to me not just anyone. But I could be wrong on how this works.

After a few weeks of talking with this therapist, the responses became very automatic again. Just weird answers and not helpful to me. At this point, I didn’t want to spend another 260 so I did cancel my membership.

If Talkspace has worked for you I’m so happy! Reaching out and getting that help is a huge step and if it helped that’s even better. It just wasn’t for me.

I’m debating on trying a different app, but I think online therapy may not be for me.

If you have used any online therapy leave them down in the comments! If you have a post about it I would love love love to read them and get more information. ❤️
