“Treat Yo Self!”
Sometimes we get so busy with life and taking care of others that we forget about ourselves and doing things that make us happy. Make yourself a priority every once in a while. It’s not selfish, it’s NECESSARY!!
“EAT THE CUPCAKE & DONUTS BOO!”
So many people are hard on themselves about body image and following strict diets. Quick Reminder Though: Sexy is not a size, every calorie is not a war & your body is not a battleground. Your value is not measured in pounds. You are just as beautiful as any other person! So with that being said.. Relax & just eat the damn cupcake. It won’t hurt to have one every now and then!
“Be Kind To Yourself”
Like seriously, you will never speak to anyone else as much as you speak to yourself in your own head. Self Encouragement is so important and sometimes very critical. This is both a form of self love & self care! I’ve learned that you can’t always depend on other people to be there & encourage you when you’re at your lowest. Most times, people don’t know all that you really go through or what daily battles you’re fighting.
Sometimes, you just have to encourage yourself! Sometimes you have to speak victory over yourself and your circumstances. There’s power in the words you speak. Keep good thoughts and a good spirit. The things you say and believe manifest quicker than you think! Pep talks are a great way to encourage yourself by the way. Sometimes, I do it in front of a mirror and sometimes I do it while I’m driving.
“Girl, you’re beautiful. You’ve been through so much and because of it, you’re a stronger person! Thank God you don’t look like what you’ve been through!! You’re a great mommy and even though you don’t think you’re doing a good job today, your kids still think the world of you! To them, baby you hung the moon and because of that you have to keep pushing! You have a big heart and you’re real hustler with great ambitions & etc..”
I talk to myself all the time about everything and keep myself lifted as much as possible! Call me crazy if you want but it works and if you’ve never done this before you should definitely give it a try!!
“PROTECT YOUR PEACE!!”
Protect your peace and I mean that! People will drive you crazy and literally stress you out if you let them. You can’t function properly when you’re stressed. You can’t be the parent, spouse, child, sibling, employee or friend you need to be when you’re under a lot of stress. You just can’t. Always remember to take care of yourself. It’s impossible to pour from an empty cup!
“STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS”
Listen, God didn’t ask you to be them. He asked you to be YOU! Stop comparing yourself to other people and what they have. What God has for you, will always be for you! Instead, learn how to cheer and be happy for other people in their winning season and have faith in the fact that when it’s your time to shine.. God got you!!
