Many would think that it’s weak of me to cry, or disliked the fact that I wore my heart on my sleeve. I would get angry anytime that my eyes filled with water while chatting with someone. Until one day someone shared that it was my strength and a part of my beauty.
How many can relate? We have to be kinder to ourselves. Possibly change our perspective as well. Be Well friends ❣️❣️❣️
Acceptance•Agreement with or belief in an idea, opinion, or explanation.•The action or process of being received as adequate or suitable, typically to be admitted into a group.
Do you find yourself aiming for acceptance by family, friends, your workplace or community? It’s truly not easy to keep up with. We truly need to Accept ourselves FIRST and all that it brings. We have to Know who we are and move through life accordingly.
Many of us have battles that runs deeper than the 👁 can see. The trauma of Life has given us scars. Sometimes we even Battle against ourselves. I urge, that even in the dark, please let Your Light Shine through. You Are Amazing, You are More than Enough. ☀️✨✨✨
On the journey of healing, I recognize the importance of loving yourself without the validation or attention from others.
It’s unhealthy to behave in this manner and to believe that if someone isn’t giving you praise, it’s a bad reflection of yourself. My dear friends, WE have to be our OWN best friend, and love ourselves first. It’s ok to have help as a secondary tool but it can’t be the ONLY tool.
It not easy to stop the codependency process but it WILL be worth it in the long run. Let’s continue to uplift one another, continue to do daily affirmations and grow. I’m here for anyone who needs help in their journeys.
I know it’s been some time since I’ve blogged, but hey, I’m here 😊. Life, has been busy, and I also wasn’t feeling the best. I was battling a chest cold (which I hope is just about gone! 🤞🏾) and it just wiped me out. I hope if any of you might have caught the sniffles that you feel better as well.
This post today will be brief but my intent is for it to give substance. How often do you do for You? Many of us are spouses, parents, professionals, scholars in academia, volunteers for many causes and more. We are constantly on the go, we do so much for others and at times get caught in a whirlwind. This is great, however, do we find the time to schedule some “self” time?
I can admit, I get caught up with my family, friends, and work life that I don’t always make “Me Time”. I know it’s a selfless act, but in the long run, I see how it crashes down. I find myself worrying about unnecessary things in my life, all because I’m consumed in other factors instead of the “Me” factor.
If someone would have said to me 10 years ago that I needed to dedicate more “Me” time, I would have said “Isn’t that being selfish?“. Guess what? It’s ok to be “selfish” for your needs. It can and will make you happier in the meantime and down the road.
What are the things that you do for you? Have you found this to be beneficial? How would you recommend this to others? Let me know in the comments!
Do you remember when you realized you loved You? Yes, you, yourself. Have you accepted you for you and all that it entails? I’m at that point and it feels good.
It’s not easy to do this, but I know that I needed to get to this space because I can’t expect love from others if I don’t possess a love for myself as well. When I say love ourselves that includes the ups and downs, the beautiful and not so beautiful. I know that I’m overall emotional, sensitive (the gift and curse), competitive, stubborn, can be loud, and tend to keep my feelings bottled up until I exploded (oh, not good I know). However, I’m also, loving, honest, loyal, supportive, hardworking and more.
I’m sure many of you share similar characteristics and can relate. So, I ask this question: if we want others to live and accept us as we are, don’t you think we ought to love and accept ourselves as well? I know that I’m growing every day, the many flaws that I have (some I’m sure I forgot to mention lol) I do work on. So, even though I accept and love me, I know the importance of striving to be a better me. I hope and pray you can do the same.
Woo, that felt great! Have a great day everyone and I hope this post helps someone today!
Note to Self! Some days are better than others but being a Queen isn’t optional. Yes, the crown can tilt but don’t allow anyone nor yourself to take it away from you. Carry yourself accordingly my Queens!
