5 things to quit right now

These 5 things are going to make you happier if you stop doing them.

TRYING TO PLEASE EVERYONE

If you are trying to be a people pleaser all the time you really will start leading a sad life. It won’t do you any favours, you should be thinking of yourself and putting a smile on your face first.

FEARING CHANGE

When you are stuck in your ways and don’t venture out of your comfort zone you wont ever progress in life. You need to take a chance every once in a while, it won’t hurt you.

LIVING IN THE PAST

When you have things in the past control how you are living in the present, it stops you from enjoying what you should be. Leave the past where it belongs…behind you.

PUTTING YOURSELF DOWN

You should never ever put yourself down. You are enough, and you are a bloody wonderful human being. Remember this and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

OVER THINKING

Once your mind goes into overdrive it’s hard to get back to your normal way of thinking without eliminating what’s got you there. The thing to do is don’t let yourself get there in the first place.

I hope this will help you if you do some of these

Don’t let social media ruin your life

I know as I am writing this it is on some form of social media. But this is our little blogging community and on a whole people are lovely and super inspiring.

Ok let’s get down to it…

INSTAGRAM

You have two typicals that you probably compare yourself to

1) whatever they post they get loads of likes even if you think yours is just as good, it’s the person they are liking most of the time not the pics. Sometimes they do have fabulous feeds. But really it’s nice to get to know the real person behind their Instagram. People are not just photos they are more wonderful than that.

2) No matter how hard you have tried it just doesn’t seem to come close to the followers or likes of the said group of instagrammers above. You get frustrated when you don’t get the appreciation too. Please don’t worry, it doesn’t make you any less of a person. Its only an app after all.

FACEBOOK

Don’t get me wrong, facebook is a wonderful thing to keep in contact with friends and relatives. But it’s when it becomes something quite destructive that you need to question whether it’s good for you or not.

The egos of some people they post something provoking and then the more fuel is added to that fire the bigger their egotistical minds get. Sad people really.

Then on the other hand there’s the ones who don’t give themselves down time from facebook, they comment on everything, like everything and post quite erraticly, that’s facebook addiction.

TWITTER

I always look at Twitter as the Fomo app (fear of missing out). You can be on there for absolute hours and not have gained anything but hours of just scrolling through tweet after tweet.

Using it for the greater good is always the way forward. It’s one of my favourite social media platforms to use. Surround yourself with happy people on Twitter and you won’t be just scrolling you’ll be Sending out positive energy and making great friends.

It’s always a question i hear a lot and here’s the answer.

Those that don’t love you for who you are are not your people. Delete and move on.

Hope you’ll look at social media differently after this.

You should go and love yourself

I haven’t always been one of those people that say love yourself and all your imperfections. Truth is i used to hate mine and i couldn’t stand looking in the mirror, having my photograph taken, i really didn’t love myself at all.

These days though i really do appreciate my body and my outer appearance for what it is.

I bought this back along from Avon i think. I liked it said i love you 3 times around the ring. Reminded me of the lyrics from Natasha Bedingfields song – These words

I didn’t need someone else to buy it for me. It’s for self love that i now have for myself.

I couldn’t praise enough about loving who you are as it’s so horrible feeling like you are not pretty enough or not worth it.

YOU ARE

Thanks for stopping by

Til next time
