Hey, everyone! It’s Jana Williams! I’m so happy you enjoyed my last post about eating healthy while traveling. (If you haven’t seen it yet, click here!) Anybody who knows me, knows that I love inspirational books and affirmations. My Instagram feed is filled with spiritual encouragement and positive affirmations. I just can’t get enough. I love transferring these affirmations onto little post-its and sticking them up in peculiar places all over my house for me and for my family to discover and be reminded by. At any moment throughout my day, my hubby Dave will randomly forward me and his daughter June an excerpt from a book or a quote that he read or a cute video that he found inspiring and I will do the same.
The world can be filled with so much conflict and strife that it can be overwhelming at times. It can be so easy to get caught up in our own struggles and personal conflicts that we start to block the well-spring of inspiration and love that we all have inside us. So sometimes receiving an inspirational reminder of who we really are and what life is truly all about can help clear away the dirt and grimness that has built up and blurred the beautiful view of life from our windows.
It is so essential to counteract the negativity with positive words of affirmation because HOW we see the world and ourselves will dictate our reality and totally gets projected by us into the world. Which reminds me of one of my favorite Wayne Dyer quotes, “Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.” So true!
So in celebration of “love day” otherwise known as Valentine’s Day, here are a few of my favorite affirmations regarding LOVE. Let me know if any of these make their way onto a post-it in your home and become a daily reminder for you and your loved ones!

“So we have come to know and to believe in the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” 1 John 4:16
