Reminders You Might Need

Hello Loves!

What is self empowerment? I really feel the need to discuss this particular topic with you all. The reason being is because I've understood that many females have been feeling that they aren't good enough lately. I want to emphasize the idea that everyone is different and beautiful in their own way. There's no need in attempting to become anyone else or succumbing to altering your appearance to resemble models we see on runways or in magazines. Not only do I want to touch on that subject, but I also want to remind you that you are worth something and you can accomplish what you strive for. It's saddening to witness gorgeous girls around me thinking that they will never amount to anything. We just need to keep sticking together and reminding each other that we can do whatever we put our minds to. An appropriate quote in relation to this, "You're allowed to scream, You're allowed to cry, But do not give up." Every time I feel like I am on the edge of falling off track or that I'm never going to be able to do the thing I really wanted to do, I come back to this quote and remind myself that it's going to be okay. What I'm trying to say is while yes it's okay to have breakdowns once in a while, you need to pick yourself back up and do what you'd originally set out to do.

There's no time for sulking. Five years can pass within a blink of an eye. Do what you need to do before it's too late. If your goal is to lose weight, get up and start now; there should be no reason as to why you can't. Or, if you set out to get a job and failed within the first try, that's okay! There should be no reason why you stop trying after the first time. Get up, shake it off and try again because there's something out there waiting for you. Work hard, time is of essence. Never give up. This life is all about achievement. What is it that you want the world to remember you for? Self empowerment is the development of confidence which allows us to set goals to fulfill. We need to provoke each other into being better versions of ourselves. I'm tired of seeing "friends" knock each other down. Help each other, love each other, motivate each other. Nothing good comes with envy and jealousy. 

Set yourself up to win and succeed. Create a solid foundation of friends who care and surround yourself around people who love you. Instead of having models, CEO's, artists, etc. bring you down and make you feel bad about yourself on how you might not achieve what they have already, look up to them as INSPIRATION rather. This is hard to do I know, but here I'll explain my perspective on it. I watch my favorite bloggers on Youtube and think of how beautiful they are and what they've acquired in comparison to myself. In some of their videos they explain how they hate some body parts or talk about the work problems they have. After watching, I immediately jump back into the realization that I need to stop comparing myself because literally everyone has insecurities or issues with themselves, BUT THAT SHOULDN'T STOP YOU FROM ANYTHING!! Everything in this life is possible as long as you are determined enough to attain it, and in order to do this, you must become confident in yourself. I know this might sound very repetitive and it's been said many times before. However, I say all this because I don't want to see anyone enduring a hardship without any support which I've seen time and time again. 

Use loved ones as your support system. This is very important because without my family I would still feel like an intimidated and useless girl. For me personally, my dad saying "Get up for God to get up with you and help you accomplish your goals", and my mom reassuring me that I am worth something assisted me in overcoming my distress. My parents' constant encouragement resonated with me and this helped in getting through a few of my hardest years where I held myself to the lowest standards. It is of utmost importance to me to constantly have a group of people that I can confide in and regain confidence to aid me in succeeding in life. Find this group of people in your life, whether it be friends, teachers, family or whoever. They will assist you in liberating yourself to become the best you. 

Have hobbies to distract you for when you crave space just for yourself. In my case that's using blogging as an outlet for my interests in fashion and personalization. Sit down with yourself and fabricate a list of activities that are of interest to you. Venture into these activities and focus on the one that you feel suits you the most. The more you put time and energy into something, you become better at it and begin to feel the overflow of confidence and completeness. You just have to get over the sulking and physically get up and start walking towards your goals. Exert yourself in finding power. You can do it. I know you can. 

Stay beautiful ladies....
