Kind Words: The Happiness Project

It was easy for me to decide what to do for my happiness project this month: Language.

More specifically: kind words.

Over the last couple of months, I have found myself engaging in negative self talk more than usual. Sometimes this looks like me saying, “I was late, ugh I’m the worst.” Now if I really think about it, being late obviously doesn’t make me the worst. I don’t even believe that of myself, but it’s not a good habit to have no matter what I truly believe. 

I have had intense feelings of self doubt at times. Over the span of April and May, I will be traveling over 30 days! These long travels have made it hard for me to put the same amount of time into my blog that I am used to. I try not to focus on numbers, but there are times when I find myself engaging in a negative spiral.

“I feel horrible that I am neglecting my blog. My blog isn’t going to go anywhere.”

Obviously these thoughts can get pretty dramatic, and none of them are rooted in truth.

In May, I am going to be focusing on my self talk. I don’t want to be rooted in criticism and negativity. I want to be rooted in self compassion and peace.


I have made a list of words and phrases that don’t serve me, and they will not have place in my life in May(or hopefully ever again).

In addition to taking these phrases out of my vocabulary, I will be speaking life giving affirmations in the morning and night. Here are some affirmations that I believe will bring me energy, hope and truth:

Here is to a month filled with a little extra kindness!




  1. I think this is a great idea and something everyone could benefit from! I often find myself struggling with the same type of doubt and negative talk. I will sit down today and write some affirmations for myself! Thanks, Candice

  2. Wow, what a great idea – i might steal it myself! 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing what you tell yourself.

  3. I love it Jubilee! You are beautiful inside and out. You are always inspiring me with your words, sharing your life, and speaking your truth. I have been needing more positive thoughts and words in my life lately. You have inspired me to try harder on my self talk and love myself a bit more. Xo

  4. What a great post! I love this! Over the last two years, I’ve had to change the way I speak to myself as well. I was letting situations I could not control, control how I treat and think of myself. In fact, I got frustrated at myself today lol. So this is a good reminder that although something might not be going the way I had hoped, it’s not worth degrading myself! Speak life!

  5. This is sooo needed around the world when we have so much craziness everywhere. I love the positivity and affirmations. This breathes life into anyone having an off day. Great post! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Jubilee, I love this! It’s so easy to fall into negative self talk…I find myself doing the same when I have days where I can’t spend a ton of time on my blog. So thank you for sharing, a little self-compassion can go a long way!

  7. That’s awesome you have a list of words you won’t say! Being positive all the time, as silly as it sounds, is hard! I have been trying to do this as well and it has been getting easier! Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  8. This is such a wonderful project Jubilee! We need more affirmation and optimism more than anything else. There’s so much hate in this world and what we really need is to be more kind with ourselves and to everyone around us

  9. Those were some affirmations I really needed to read, thank you, Jubilee!! ♡ I often say “I’m the worst” too & even though I may not truly believe it– it is totally damaging to my psyche. Need to cut that phrase out for sure!

  10. This is beautiful and a great idea! I’ve noticed that I’m somewhat of a negative person. I always see the glass half empty. To change that, I need to do more affirmations like these. Proverbs 12:18 mentions that the tongue of the wise is a healing. James 3:5-10 shows how damaging our tongue or the words we speak can be, not just to others but we can damage ourselves too. Thanks for reminding me of this. I will definitely try to use my tongue for healing more often.
