One day I got into trouble and my mom sent me to my room. I was so angry that I started to say really mean things to myself, like 'I am a bad girl.' My mom overheard me and that was the day that everything changed.
In this video, I talk about what happened when I got caught saying some pretty mean things to myself on that day.
Honestly I get a tad bit embarrassed when sharing this story, so excuse my soft voice...
After this incident, my mom taught me to
My mom taught me to replace my negative self-talk with positive affirmations. I replaced 'I am a bad girl' with affirmations such as, 'I am smart. I am beautiful. I am bigger than my mistakes.'
Together with my mom, we wrote the Eva the Diva Girl books to empower young girls, like me, to increase their confidence, build self-esteem, and create a positive, healthy & successful future.
Eva the Diva Girl Speaks Powerful Affirmations & Eva the Diva Girl Makes New Friends are the first two installments in a series of rhyming picture books for children ages 4-9 that celebrate girl power and diversity. In each book, Eva the Diva Girl uses the power of positive affirmations to overcome a challenge.
