Flax Affirmations

Flax Affirmations Jeanne Engelhart
The Flax by Jeanne Engelhart line doesn’t just traffic in oversized, low-key chic linen, it traffics in positive vibes in the form of label affirmations. This is how you know you’re not only comfortably dressed in sensible, made-in-Lithuania fabric with an easy cut, you’re
living your best life each day you reach into your closet and pull out a garment that affirms your happiness, your beauty and your sense of self worth. 

A fan of anything oversized, vintage and linen, I bought my first Flax a couple of years ago on eBay and have been searching for my next piece since. The tags give you a kind of ’collect them all’  desire. Maybe they’re cheesy, kooky, unlikely, silly. Yet others contend they’re powerful incantations. Say what you want about affirmations, but I’d say, say them. 

They're good for jolting you out of your current perspective. It’s like practicing smiling when you’re feeling blah. Just by doing or saying something that’s positive, you may actually feel a bit better. As someone who tends to be a bit cynical and pessimistic by nature, I’ve found that I really need some self-convincing to allow myself to feel optimistic some days. If you’re interested in affirmations, and creating your own that really resonate with you, I highly recommend this book. When it comes down to it, affirmations don’t have to mean convincing yourself of something you don’t think is true; they can just be a way of focusing on one positive thing you can locate or want to bring into being. And why not get some linen on the side?

  2. If you're ever back in Ithaca, there's a Flax barn sale there every year!

    1. p.s. This is Sarah. (Though I'm sure the Ithaca reference made that obvious.) No idea where "sjeanb" came from.
