Note To Self:

When we're happy and all in love with ourselves, we can't be bothered with the bullshit (of our own or other people's) Jen Sincero "You Are a Badass"

SHOP THE LOOK:

As I was checking out at Barnes & Noble with three self-help books in my basket, I started to let my thoughts wander, "is this lady judging me right now?" "does she think I am a loser for buying 3 self help books in 1 trip?" "does the lady behind me think I am fat?" " did anyone notice that I am wearing active wear even though I lead a very inactive lifestyle?"

We are so hard on ourselves. We do it everyday and we beat ourselves up for every little thing. Don't deny it. I do it, you do it, we ALL do it from time to time.

I decided to read the infamous book titled "You Are A Badass" to kickstart my year. I have heard so much praise about this book so I Just had to see what the fuzz was all about. I came home that day determined to get my shit together and start anew. I ended up reading the book in a day. I wish I can say that the book is a magical potion that will turn you into your best self-loving healthy-living, universe-appreciatin', happy, smart, bright-eyed millennial BUT no, that's not the case. Now don't get me wrong the book IS FANTASTIC! It's filled with super easy exercises on self-love and a few cuss words for comedic relief and a few other goodies. But at the end of the day it's just a book. If you don't have the desire to get your poop together, this won't help. Bit I decided for myself that I will WORK at being my better self not just rely on books, internet advice or other BS. It ALL starts with you. Don't just grab a self-help book to only take a photo of it for Instagram and let it gather dust on the bookshelf for the rest of the year. Don't just say you're going to start a healthy lifestyle -- but actually be proactive about it. Don't wish you had a more fun life, work on it and let yourself get out of the shell. You can see where I'm going with this. You're a smart cookie!

But anyway...Jen Sincero, the author of "You Are A Badass" empasizes a lot on self-love which I can appreciate. So, this week I promised to make my own list of affirmations and try to actually use them daily. I hope you will like them. 

1. I deserve and receive massive amounts of love every moment of every day

2. My heart is open.Love pours in and out

3. I deserve and am open to receiving all the good the Universe has prepared for me

4. I love the size of my ass and my things with stretch marks all over them

5. I am smart. I am kind. I am beautiful (with or without makeup)

6. I can do the things I set my mind to no matter how hard I make it sound in my head

7. My mistakes don't define me as a person

8. God loves me just the way that I am 

I hope you can live out your truth, too, my darling. I hope my honesty and vulnerability will inspire you to do better and to reach for the stars. You are loved. And you are cherished.

Now be good and do good...

xx,
