Selfish Love

Selfish-love what is the meaning of this word to you? For me, it means loving yourself just the way you are, the way you look, the way you act, and the way you feel despite what others might say. Some of us have a hard time accepting the type of human we are. We want to look just as great as any other woman we might crush on. We want to look just as good or even better right? The comparison is one of the most terrible ways you can do to bring your self-esteem down. So stop right now and think about the things that you love about yourself! Sure some women are born with natural beauty and that is the truth! Some of us are born special made haha, winky face because you know what I mean. We have things that we don’t like from our bodies, to our skin, to our personalities to the way we dress up.

We start to pick on us, we look at our flaws and find things that we just hate about ourselves! I know I’ve been there, these are just feelings that shouldn’t even be there at all but are. We are all born with our own uniqueness, our own personality, our own style, our own mark. And yet we can’t accept the way we were made. We fall for people’s judgments so easily they don’t seem to know how hard it can be for us. Could it be hate or just plain jealousy? Nobody knows because, in reality, nobody will tell you how they feel or what makes them they say rude comments about you or to you. Know that the person who has ever said anything about you has their own insecurities. Everyone hides them and everyone is too blind to see their mistakes. It’s so easy to say hateful words but it’s so hard to forget.

Now let that sink in before you decide you want to say something rude about yourself or to someone. This is a reason why we are so hard on ourselves. Why is it so hard to love ourselves and be proud of it? Why do we hide when we were born to stand out? It can be scary right?? It will take courage to stand up for yourself and show everyone who you are meant to be and let me tell you it’s time! We should be able to feel free in our own bodies no matter what anyone says. Yes, you are different but that’s because you were born to be. Who wants a world filled with all grey and no red!? Not me! Let everyone be different, let everyone stand out, let everyone be who they want to be. Let’s celebrate each other’s beauty and dare to admire others beauty without judging our own.

Everyone is unique in their own beauty and sometimes you don’t even have to do or use anything to be your own kind of beautiful. Even the word Beautiful is so rare nowadays, that once it’s mentioned it feels unbelievable and sounds like a joke. All this superficial beauty is taking over and most people believe that it is how a woman should look. What happened to natural beauty? The beauty that makes you, You! It’s time to take back our lives and live a life full of happiness, peace, and love for ourselves. I like to call it selfish ambition, you will work on you. Loving the person that you are and standing proud of the human that God has created you to be. Tall, short, chubby, skinny, stretch marks, scars, freckles, long hair, short hair all of this doesn’t matter. What matters is how you feel! If you radiate confidence people will admire your vibe of confidence and look up to you for your strength and courage. No one has time to look at your flaws. People come to you by how you radiate your energy. Sure some people will be mean and will always have something to say about whatever it is that you are, look or do. Are you going to please them? I hope not, God created us to be a one of a kind unique woman.

He wanted us to show the world that we should love the human bodies that our souls reside in. The person that we are meant to be is inside of us all. And it is up to us to show some selfish love to ourselves. Feed our souls with positive energy, feed our feelings with happiness and our thoughts with positive words. Our bodies with good foods that will help us live long, good exercises that will help us reserve our strength in the long run. Always, always, always think for yourself and by yourself the things that you want to do and why you want to do them. Never because someone told you or because someone is making you. Always for you! Show some love to yourself, be selfish when it comes to you! Girl! Get a haircut, color your hair, do your nails, put on some makeup, dress up,  eat good food, take that long walk, go for a hike and feel good! Do something that will make you feel ten times better than you did before because you know in your heart you are a beauty and you claim it!! A simple compliment goes a long way to yourself or to someone. If you don’t believe me try it, repeat after me. I am beautiful! You are beautiful! We are beautiful!

Nature Lover

Growing up I’ve always loved being outside, I called my self an outdoor monkey. I loved exploring everywhere and always seem to come home looking like a mess. My parents used to live near a farm and I always seemed to enjoy running into the fields. Feeling the wispy touch of the grain stems on my skin. Climbing bails of hay that were stacked up high. Or going into the mountains and climbing the highest hill, listening to the wolves howl at night, laying outside on the grass, looking up at the beautiful starry sky. I love nature with all its beauty, with all its colors, the feeling of happiness running through my soul. These are memories I will forever cherish, the habits I will never change!

The Message

Tonight, I have been inspired to write a message; it has been a magical feeling kind of night, a beautiful feeling that something great is about to happen. A feeling that tells me, soon everything we are going through will be resolved. I received this message after watching a video from Akiane Kramarik called “The Messenger”. This video is a must watch! Akiane is an artist who uses her god given gifts into beautiful messages creating beautiful portraits. As she starts to paint her canvas, she explains all the images she is capturing in her mind. She talks about how each image changes form the true message behind her envisions. This video is followed by soothing sounds that set you into a relaxed state of calmness and peace. I encourage you to make some time to watch this beautiful title.

Soul Sisters

Is there such thing as a soul friendship? When it comes to friends I have realized that I get easily attracted by their energy. It’s easy for me to pick up vibes from someone, could be strange to you. But I have come to appreciate that feeling, I have lots of friends but only a few have truly been there for me during my tough times. These girls are the type of people that set everything aside to help. Usually I like doing things on my own, I feel embarrassed when I have to ask one of them for help. Sure they tell me not to worry its just hard for me to get over that feeling. I realize how truly blessed I really am to have them in my life. If they see me struggling, their first instinct is to help me out. I appreciate it a lot and even though I don’t say it much, I am dedicating this article to them.

Gratitude For The Aide

How do you feel when others help you? How does it feel when someone lends you a hand in your time of need? Or when they see you struggle, what is your reaction? Do you feel embarrassed? Upset, because you can’t do some things on your own?

I can tell you right now these are just mixed feelings we perceive. I’ve seen people smile when someone lends them a helping hand, some appreciate the help so much they become happy with gratitude, and there is always the people who say no with an attitude. Could it be that they feel less of a person for accepting the help? Or possibly that they just don’t want to ruin their strong and resilient image? At times we do come to think we are too much of ourselves, we don’t need help from anyone. We are smart, we are strong, we are capable of doing anything. Continue reading “Gratitude For The Aide”
