Good evening all…Incase you did not know (which you probably didn’t), I started blogging a while back but took a break because….well life. I was going through my posts on my old blog and came across this…I still think it’s so relevant so I’m going to recycle that post here…
Ok this is going to be brief because what I’m about to put below is all I want you take out of this post…no “laadeedaa this is what I bought today/ this is what I wore” …No. Please girls/boys/men/women/EVERYONE remember this always ❤
(AND THE SAME GOES FOR MEN!!!)
– Don’t diminish your worth based on what you think society wants/likes
– Stop focussing on your “flaws”
– Stop comparing yourself to other people
– Love yourself
– Respect yourself
– Know yourself; don’t try and be who you think everyone wants you to be, you are the way you are for a reason. Embrace it.
Darling, you are enough, and don’t let anyone tell you or make you feel otherwise.
YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.
I know…..I know…”where have I been?” I hear no-one ask. Well….I’ve been, I’ve been breathing…eating…breathing some more..working…and eating. Did I mention eating? Ok, un-funny jokes aside, I’ve been working a ridiculous amount over the past few months; wearing myself out so I didn’t have energy for anything else, barely socialised, didn’t do anything fun, and was just an all round sack of bleh. I’m done with that now.
I’m taking a break for a few months just to realign myself. It may sound a tad douchey but it’s true. I’m trying to get to know myself outside of my current employment because that’s all I’ve known for so many years and that’s all I’ve identified with.
This year isn’t about becoming a “new me”. That suggests that I wasn’t good enough before, and negates all the experiences, thoughts, and feelings that have led me to where I am today. So no, not “new year, new me”, “new year, same me”….I’m just trying to focus on being a better version of myself and growing as much as possible. I have a few projects that i had put aside because I didn’t have enough mental or physical energy to pursue them whilst I was working, so I’m going to see them through. As for blogging. Well, I’m taking each day as it goes but expect to see a little bit more of me 🙂
Hope you all have an amazing year. Love yourselves, be kind to others, enjoy the process of life, and try to be the best versions of yourselves you can.
