Hey there everyone,
I hope you all are having a great week & are ready to keep the momentum going to the weekend! Today I wanted to share a topic that is near and dear to me, self-love. Lately, in my posts, I have mentioned this particular topic because I believe it is an important lesson for not just women, but everyone should know and learn. Learning to love yourself and who you are can help you lead a better lifestyle & help you become more confident in yourself. Today I want to share tips that have helped me find my own love for myself & hopefully help you discover your own inner love.
No matter what the circumstances, always remember to smile. It is a sure fire way to brighten up your mood even on the toughest of days. Whenever I am doubting myself, my boyfriend (when the mood is right) always tries to make me laugh or crack a smile, which helps me get out of my funk and helps me believe in myself again.
I know this can be easier said than done. I’m still trying to accept myself & every day it is a new problem that I find myself dealing with. But, I have to keep reminding myself that I am perfect the way I am & to stop trying to be like everyone else. Try to take 5 minutes every day and list off some things that you love about yourself. It could be your hair, your personality, or any number of amazing things. I promise one step at a time you will learn to love & accept yourself!
Leaving cute little notes for yourself around your room can instantly boost your mood & confidence in yourself.
Surround yourself with good people
Surrounding yourself with positive people who build you up instead of tearing you down can make all the difference in your confidence & love for yourself. Don’t let negative people dull your shine. Find people who make you a better person both inside and out!
Write out your feelings
Something that helps me is writing about my feelings. It gets everything off your chest which lifts a whole weight off your chest. Whether you like handwriting your feelings or typing them on your laptop, it never hurts to write them out and “detox” your mind to make room for more love.
Celebrate the small things
Something that I always struggled with is missing the little good moments & things that happen in my life. I tend to get down on myself about the small bad moments & things no matter what. Everything else in my life could be great, but one small bad thing happens & my world goes into a spiral. However, I found that when I try to focus on the good moments or parts of myself that is when I start to feel more confident & proud of the beautiful person I am. So if you struggle with the same thing that I do, just remind yourself how truly amazing & beautiful you are inside and out!
Have a “you” day
I always feel like there are never enough hours in a day to do ALL the things that I want & need to do! For me, I feel most relaxed when I read or write, so I try to take an hour or 2 out of my day to do something that I love to do. Sometimes I’ll even take a full day! Go out shopping, pamper yourself, or go out on a confidence-building photoshoot. Whatever makes you happy & feeling special that day go out and have a good time!
Let go of any negativity
Move on & let go of any negativity that you may have in your life. Life is too short for negativity to be a presence in your life so make sure to kick those negative thoughts & feels to the curb!
Don’t compare yourself
I am ALWAYS comparing myself to other girls & their look. I came to the decision that I am not like everyone else & I can’t keep putting myself through the torture of trying to change who I am to please standards. Anyone who is looking to find more self-love I think this is the most important step. Be true to you and stop looking to be like everyone else.
I hope some of these tips help you find peace in who you are & help you bring more self-love and confidence to your life! I know they have sure helped me in my self-loving journey (which is far from over) & I cannot wait to continue this journey. You are all amazing & important and I hope you never forget that! We are all created differently so live your life uniquely & create your own path. I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week & an even better weekend. I’ll talk to you all again soon!
Sending Positive Vibes,
