Anxiety Diaries | New affirmation badges

This afternoon I spent some time designing and implementing a couple of badges featuring sayings and affirmations from Anxiety Diaries posts. Quite a few people have mentioned certain phrases from posts in tweets and comments so I thought why not take some of them and turn them into badges for people to help themselves to? Everyone loves a freebie, right?! I hope that the phrases I've 'badged up' (I love a made up word!) so far will cause some smiles and positive thoughts for those who happen to see them. 

You can find the square badges on the left hand sidebar of the Bluebird & the Robin, and each comes with a HTML code that you can copy in order to pop the badge on your very own blog/website/corner of the internet. Feel free to use the badges however you see fit; they're designed to be shared freely and to spread joy and hope! I've designed them to link back to a page displaying all Anxiety Diaries posts in the series, including future ones, so if someone clicks on the badge on your blog they'll be taken straight to the Anxiety Diaries series. However, if you'd like to use the badges in a different way, such as on Facebook or Twitter, feel free! 

I went with 'I Am Found!' and 'You deserve to blossom' first as these are two messages that I hold close to my heart and that seem to have resonated with readers. *Technically* a good affirmation includes 'I', so I will also be posting an 'I deserve to blossom' badge in the near future, to accompany the 'You deserve to blossom' badge!

UPDATED! I've now also added a 'Be Kind' badge, the idea behind which originated from my Love | Be Kind post.

 Help yourself to the codes available under each button to the left of my blog layout, and keep your eyes peeled for more buttons coming soon!

  1. This is a FANTASTIC idea... As a fellow sufferer (< I hate that word.. Didn't know how else to put it..) it's nice to get some affirmation and motivation in all the different ways and places you can find.. This being one of them!
    Thank you!

    1. Thanks so much Becky! I know what you mean about the word 'sufferer', I sometimes use 'fighter' to frame the struggle in a more powerful way? It makes me feel a little better! I'm so glad you like the affirmation badges, I've got plenty more in the works that I hope you'll like too! xxx
