As a society we're constantly bombarded with images and media that tell us we need to look better, dress better, but there isn't enough telling us to love better, feel better, give better. They tell us, if you look like this small twig over here, you'll feel better than this bigger twig over there. If you wear this trend here, you'll be so cool compared to if you wear last years trend. What we need more of is, you'll feel great if you wear what you love and take care of your body in a healthy way because it's the only one your getting and it deserves your love & care! And why are there so many people - women especially falling for this mess!?! We need women to stand together, instead of tearing each other apart & take on the world. We weren't put on this Earth to live up to anyone's standards, but our own. We all deserve love no matter who we are, where we come from or what we may have done in our lives. As we women, we need to empower ourselves from the inside out, because you won't find it in a piece of clothing - that only enhances & expresses what's on the inside. And for those that go around thinking that designer dress or shoes they wear makes you great, it doesn't. Take all that away & what are you left with!?! A hollow casing, with nothing else to give because you didn't take the time to fill yourself with the things that matter most. We all deserve to walk out of the door and feel absolutely amazing and not give two thoughts about what someone else might say...build our armour of self assurance because we know we're worth more than our outsides, we're strong minded, intelligent beings who can make a difference in the world!! I hope you take the time to love yourself today...just the way you are!!
Have a great Monday!
“Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.” -Zooey Deschanel
“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.” C. JoyBell C.
“People always ask me, ‘You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl … It doesn't have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it. We need more of this and less “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”’”
