Today’s post is written by our guest blogger Lindsay Muller from lindsaymuller.com She is a mother, a singer and a blogger. let’s see what she brought us for today’s guest post!
Three years ago, I was a stressed out mom of two energetic toddlers. I felt like most of the words that came out of my mouth were
“Don’t do that!”
“Be gentle with your brother!”
Deep down, I wanted to speak positive, loving words to my boys because what we say to our children is POWERFUL. Our words become their inner voice!
But I was so busy and frustrated with the demands of my little boys that I often forgot.
At the same time, I was learning about SELF LOVE and POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS. As I spoke affirmations to myself I noticed a huge shift. I became so much happier, more confident and less stressed. I wanted to make sure my kids heard these affirmations from a young age because I knew they would believe them easily, and hopefully keep them tucked in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
My A to Z list:
So I came up with a list of positive affirmations from A-Z, starting with “You are Amazing” for the letter A. I’d whisper this list each night as I tucked them into bed, and eventually it developed into the song that has become my main message as a parent, musician and human: that every single one of us is AMAZING; that we are all loved, unique, and valuable.
Not Only For Children:
I didn’t want this message to be solely for the kids, so eventually, a second verse developed. I wanted my boys to know that I believed in these affirmations as well. This time I turned the words around: “You Are Amazing” became “I Am Amazing.” It turned into my personal anthem and boosted my self-confidence and self-love even further.
Without further ado, here are the lyrics. I hope they will serve as a tool to help instill self-love and confidence in your children’s hearts – and in yours as well.

You are amazing, and I believe in you,
You’re beautiful inside and out
You are capable of anything you wanna do,
And you’re doing a great job
You are excellent,
and I have faith in you,
you have great ideas
And I’m so happy that you’re in my life
You are important, intelligent,
You are filled with joy
You are kind, you are loved,
you’re allowed to make mistakes
You’re never alone, and it’s okay to be sad, to be mad, to be scared
You are precious, and I’m so proud of you,
We are all equal
You radiate love and joy,
You’re special and you’re safe
I trust in you, for you are unique, valuable, wonderful
I’m so excited to get to know you.
Love yourself, be yourself and
go crazy once in a while.
I love you in the good, I love you in the bad,
When you’re happy, and when you’re sad
I will love you, I will love you, always!
