Today I want to share with you 5 tips to start your journey to self love!
Tip 1: Find something you are confident in. For me I have always been confident in my ability to have style. I found a lot of my confidence through clothes and continue to love myself through my own personal style. Wear what makes you comfortable and happy. Remember clothing has sizes but style does not!
Tip 2: Look in the mirror and own who you are. As you can see in the video short above, that is me owning my body in the mirror. Knowing that my body is good enough the way it is. You are 100% original, you can not be duplicated and that’s what makes you beautiful.
Tip 3: Surround yourself with positive people. On this Journey to self love you will have negative moments where you don’t feel 100% confident and that’s okay. We all have good and bad body days but it is important to that positive boost we all need to get out of our funk and move forward in this journey. Positive energy makes this process a lot easier!
Tip 4: Don’t compare yourself to others. As I mentioned in tip 2 we are original, we can’t compare ourselves to other people’s body or lifestyle. Live your best life and do things that make you happy. I often find my self down in dumps comparing myself to others so I have to stop and reevaluate “why am I doing this?” This person isn’t better than me because they have abs or a chiseled chest. I’m just as awesome as anyone else because I’m me and being you is the most pure thing we can be.
Tip 5: Keep moving forward. The road the body confidence is different for everyone the same two people are not going to share the same tale on this path. It may be long, bumpy and full of dark areas and someones else maybe the exact opposite and that’s okay. Just keep loving yourself, wear what makes you feel happy, have positive people in your corner and DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS!
Follow these tips and the rest will fall in place! Much love to you all and remember #StyleHasNoSize!
Sometimes in life we need a boost whether it be physically or emotionally we can all benefit from a little help along the path of success. When you choose to be successful you will need to have determination, a strong mind and a great support system. The kind of support that helps you move forward when you have a set back. My grandma often tells me that “a set back is nothing but a set up for a comeback”. I live by those words because when you think about it…..it’s true. We all have set backs minor or major that can hinder our motivation on this journey. Receiving that great advice, hug or someone to listen to you vent gives us that boost we need to comeback from that set back. Always remember nothing in life that is easy is worth working hard for, if your goal was easy then everyone could do it. It’s hard because it was made for you, just believe in yourself and trust the process 🙂
Let me talk to you about self love. The best relationship we have is the one with ourselves, it’s hard to be nice to others if you’re constantly mean to yourself. When you love yourself you’re more likely to show love to others. Loving yourself can change your life in so many ways….it will help you get that confidence you needed to wear that outfit, talk to that stranger or even get that dream job. Love is unconditional, so love yourself with no boundaries or conditions. You’re body is going to change, life is going to give you ups and downs but don’t steer away from your goals of self love. You’re unique and one of a kind, you just gotta believe it 🙂 #MotivationalMonday
Purple is my favorite color and always has been since I was a kid. I remember being fascinated with Prince’s purple rain! I loved seeing him in his purple velvet jacket….it made me feel like it was okay for a male to not only like the color purple but also wear it. So when I saw these purple suede wingtips in 2014 I was in love! I purchased them with no regret although I don’t wear them often they are still one of my favorite pairs of shoes and grapes are one of my favorite fruits. Coincidence?! I think not 🙂
