Positive affirmations that might motivate, uplift and inspire you

At the end of all my blogs I always write ‘keep smiling’.  Why? I think it’s vital to remember to not give up on life, yes living with Fibromyalgia is tough but we have to try and keep positive.  Yes, there will be times when the tears of frustration and pain will flow freely but we need to wipe away those tears and then try to find a reason to smile again. We can’t allow Fibromyalgia to steal our smiles.


Trying to keep positive is important – we deserve to be happy.  We are fibro warriors, not fibro sufferers!


Sometimes we repeat self-defeating or negative phrases in our minds:

‘I can’t do this.’

‘There is too much to do.’

‘I haven’t the energy to keep trying.’

‘My life is terrible.’

These phrases need to be replaced with positive affirmations:

‘I can do this and I will find a way to do this!’

‘I will start with the important things and get this done one at a time.’

‘I will not give up!’

‘I can see so much beauty in this world!’

  11. A very inspiring post. I too like to spread positivity on my facebook page every day, but it’s lovely to be reminded myself. Thank you. This was something I got in to when I was planning my home birth last year. They really really work!

    I agree that this is an inspiring post! In fact, I find the whole blog plus Claire herself inspirational! I had the pleasure of working with Claire a few years ago and despite all the bad stuff that’s happened to her, she is one of the most positive people that I have ever met! I’m glad that everyone else agrees! On FB, we were discussing positive affirmations in more detail and I mentioned that one thing I tell myself when I have a bad day is that I will concentrate on what I can do rather than what I can’t do! Claire said that this is a positive way to think about my condition (I don’t have Fibromyalgia but I do have episodes of acute and sometimes debilitating nerve pain in my lower back due to an old injury. I recently found out that because I also have slight scoliosis, this will keep happening to me for the rest of my life unless I exercise regularly). Whenever I can, I also focus on what I can do today that I couldn’t do yesterday and what I aim to do tomorrow. E.g. Today, I walked to and from my local town centre using the hard route for the first time since injuring my back. This involved walking up and down a fairly steep hill! I didn’t think I could do this as hill walking was a near impossibility for me until recently but I decided to try anyway and it got easier as I went along. Claire suggested that I share this with you all as an example of why my philosophy works for me! I hope that no-one minds! I hope that you have a good day tomorrow health wise and that Claire’s blogs help you as much as they do me! Thanks Claire!

    PS. Tomorrow, I aim to get back to wearing a pair of shoes that are not Skechers! As comfortable as they are, I would like to be able to wear more feminine shoes again! Does anyone else have anything that they can do today that they couldn’t do yesterday and ideas about what they want to achieve tomorrow?

  14. It’s so important to keep positive affirmations in life. I think thoughts are like outfits, you choose which one you’ll put on everyday. Although many people don’t believe it, thoughts define actions, so staying positive is vital. Keep going, Claire!

    This is my favourite type of blog post! I love quotes (and words in general) and I really believe in the power of affirmations. ‘I am worthy’ is my favourite. Thank you for sharing such a motivational post! x

  36. jollyjillys says:

    So true Claire. I have FM as well and each day is a struggle. I have gained a huge amount of weight as well due to my lack of energy which weighs me down. I so find It hard to remember the days when I was fit and well and making the effort to even leave the house at times is hard. I try and fight on and paste a smile even if deep down I feel like staying in bed forever. I will take on board your positive affirmations and thanks for sharing. Fight on Fight on!

  39. positivelystacey says:

    Claire – I simply love this post! I do no know what it is like to live with FM – it sounds very painful and debilitating. I do know that everyone walks around with stories that we are unaware of. I live by the simple motto, Always do your best, and accept that your best is different on any given day. Thank you for all of these wonderful affirmations!

  40. Ana De-Jesus says:

    Honestly Claire you are such an inspiration, your positivity is infectious. No matter how ill you are you still remain optimistic and that is an attitude that I admire!
