Good morning, beautiful people!
With today marking the start of a new week, I think we’ve all been given yet another chance at a fresh start. So, here I am, with my cup of coffee, super early in the morning, doing the thing I’ve skiped for a while: writing, sharing my thoughts and also pieces of my life. I like to take opportunities like new weeks, new months and even new years to revalue or re-establish where I’m at and where I’m going on this journey. This year was so crazy, I had a lot of ups and downs and even now when I’m still a little confused about some things, I am confident and happy, because everyday I am a work in progress.
So I’m asking myself with this fresh beginning ahead “what can I do to improve myself in my journey?” I was so convinced recently I was on my own feet only to have the groung kicked out from beneath me. And thinking about all these, it comes to my mind an E.Hemingway’s quote – “The world breaks everyone and afterward many are stronger in the broken places.” After this, I decided it was time to love myself more. Because I’ve realized that if I don’t love myself consciously, then subconsciously I start taking decisions to self harm without even knowing it.
One of the easiest way to love yourself more is to take care of yourself: start drinking more water, eat healthy, go to the gym, do some yoga, wear something nice and sexy. I guess we sometimes stop doing all these things because we are already feeling bad and ugly or fat. But we have to take care of ourselves only because we deserve it. So tonight, when you arrive home, make yourself some hair and face masks, drink some wine and read a great book.
The second thing you can do is to stay light, to have good thoughts. Read some good books and listen to some podcasts to start gain more confidence and to learn new things. Also, you can start to meditate, it helps a lot.
Don’t compare yourself with others – that’s really important- Don’t forget that nobody is you and that’s your superpower. Find out your passions, what you love and what makes you happy, so you can discover your greatness and your worthiness. We are all amazing!
Another important step is to be grateful for what you have. At the end of the day find at least 3 reasons to be thankful for, especially the simple things like you lived another day, you could breathe and felt the sun on your skin.
Redifine your idea of beauty. You can’t feel ugly no matter what! We all have days when we don’t feel so good about ourselves, but don’t let that change you. Don’t compare yourself with other people because there will always be someone prettier or smarter, but that doesn’t mean you are not amazing. You don’t have to be beautiful like her. You have to be beautiful YOU!
Love yourself a little bit more everyday because when we show up with confidence and self-love, I have faith that’s when the Universe steps in to fill in the map of our journey with some amazing things!
Have a nice week, babes!
