Make 2019 the year you say goodbye to negative thoughts, to other peoples opinions and to what the media tells us we should be like when it comes to you and your body. Make this the year you feel proud of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. Let yourself be the leading lady in your story not the support act and show yourself off !!
It all comes down to your mindset and how you view yourself, no one else's opinion matters and I think that is why it is hard. As a society we like validation, we like people to tell us we are doing ok - I mean that is pretty much what social media is there for 90% of the time. It is so easy to become fixated on what everyone else is doing, on how many likes you get or how many followers you have. When in reality that is all superficial, it doesn't make you who you are. Your friends aren't your friends because of your social media following, they don't love you because of what you look like and they really don't care about how much you weigh. What they do care about and why they are your friends is your personality, who you are as a person and what you stand for. They love you for being you and what you bring to the world and it's time you did the same.
The next time you belittle yourself or think you are not worth it please stop, imagine if you spoke that way about your best friend ?? You wouldn't would you ? So why speak about yourself like that! I want you to focus on the positives, I want you to look at all you have achieved and where you see yourself going.
Write it down, all of it - every achievement, every positive thing that has happened to you so far. Then write down your ambitions and where you see yourself going. Now you have something to look at and be proud as well as focus going forward.
Make 2019 the year you look after yourself, take time and care to make yourself feel incredible. You deserve to be the best version of you that you can possibly be. And to do so you need to actually take care of number one. So whatever your form of self care is please make it part of your lifestyle going forward.
You are incredible, you deserve to be happy and you are allowed to be proud of yourself. Don't shy away from what you have achieved shout it from the bloody rooftops !! You are not bigheaded to be proud, you are just proud.
I really hope that this is the year you also realise this x
