2023 is the year the world truly started to open up again. It’s been an eventful year with the anniversary of the Russian war in Ukraine, AI beginning to take over creativity, (Trump’s indictments… yikes!) …. All the world events can cause overwhelm or distract you from your goals and can have an impact on your mental health.

So as you embark over the hill into the new year, use these 50 2024 affirmations to set your spirit aglow and be the amazing person you truly are!
What Is Authenticity?
“Authenticity means you’re true to your own personality, values, and spirit, regardless of the pressure that you’re under to act otherwise. You’re honest with yourself and with others, and you take responsibility for your mistakes. Your values, ideals, and actions align.“MindTools
At its core, authenticity is all about being your true self, free and honest with yourself and the world, with integrity and honor.

Embracing Authenticity in 2024
In our world, authenticity is becoming a greater focus, from more people coming out as LGTBQ+ and more people saying NO to accepting positions for which they’re overqualified and underpaid. You see more families choosing to live a nomadic life, traveling and homeschooling their children, and people living without creating any waste.
These are all ways that people express their truest selves.
And honestly, the world needs this unabashed authenticity! We need to see how truly varied human life is and can be, successfully and without harm.
If you’re someone who wants to move towards a freer, more authentic life and world from now to the end of the decade, then let’s start today.
Rest, Kindness, Joy, Wonder
I find that I’m able to be my most authentic self when I’m fully rest and I’ve found a balance between pursuing my goals and enjoying myself with leisure activities. Besides, more people are feeling stressed at higher levels, so resting and actively find ways to release that stress helps you enjoy yourself more.
Speaking of enjoying yourself, being kind is easier when you’re less stressed, too! So let’s move towards a world with less stress, more childlike wonder and simple joys that help us grow our gratitude!
As always, I like to give an explanation for how to use affirmations in a way that is beneficial and easy. Affirmations work the best when you repeat them over and over, because they help you rewire your brain to choose joy, gratitude, and positivity.
(If you use them correctly, affirmations are NOT toxically positive!)
You can repeat your affirmations by putting them on sticky notes on your mirror. You can print them out and put them in your purse. You can write them down in your journal every day!
There’s no right or wrong to how you repeat your affirmations, as long as you allow your mind to focus on them. Meditation or yoga are other good choices!
