This is quite possibly one of the hardest posts I’ve ever had to write but due to the low down moods I’ve been experiencing recently, I decided to challenge myself to find 5 things that I love about myself.
There’s nothing worse than constantly comparing yourself to the big world of many people, which I used to do on a regular basis but have stopped doing since I started my ‘Health Kick’ regime. I started spending more time focusing on myself and getting myself to how I wanted to be than scrolling through Instagram for hours on end looking at everyone who appeared to have maybe better morals than me, better bodies, better hair, better facial features, you know all that silly stuff.
I’ve never been one to like anything about myself so I knew it was going to take me a while to find 5 things that I ”loved” about myself but I am so happy I did because it made me feel great and I really would recommend you do it too. It’s good therapy for the soul, everyone needs reminding that they’re great, so you can now, right now, remind yourself that you are amazing and unique.
Here are my 5 reasons why I love myself;
1. I like to look for the good in everybody.
This can be considered as a bad trait to some people but to me, I think everybody should have an element within them that looks for the good in somebody or somebody’s intentions because this world is far too hostile towards people. People are so quick to turn on each other for the most ridiculous reasons like misinterpreting something someone has said and making that person out to be a bad person. Granted, some people are arseholes, there’s no way I can deny that completely but I know that even those arseholes have the smallest amount of good in them somewhere and I will continue to look for it if possible.
2. I have the best parties when I’m at home alone with my dogs.
Sometimes, I need to blow off steam, I can’t afford to go partying in town. Anybody who really knows me will know how much I love music. I love cranking that volume to a ridiculous number (due to the size of the speakers in the living room, the neighbours will be super glad we’re detached houses!) and sing at the top of my lungs dance like an idiot, and include the dogs of course, I have no choice but to involve the dogs. They absolutely love it, maybe…
3. I am easily pleased. (In some cases!)
When it comes to clothing, makeup, hair or what music I want to listen to, I am not easy to please, however, if you ask me what I want to eat for lunch or tea, what I want to do that day, where I want to go, what I want to do my answer will always be ”up to you”. Yes it may be a cop-out to not have to make a decision but look at it this way, you suggest we walk to a sewer or something, I’ll be totes happy to do so. Anything that involves me moving and being active or my mind being stimulated in some way shape or form makes me happy.
4. I have a passion for anything creative.
I am an artistic soul for sure. Some days you can give me a pencil and a sheet of paper and I will only be able to draw a stick man, other days you give me the same equipment and I will draw you a masterpiece. (not literally). I find that my many different moods dictate to me on different days what creative thing I am going to be good at on that day. Some days I will pick up my camera and produce the biggest load of crap that my 2-year-old brother could produce better. I love painting, sculpting, sketching, taking photographs and even making jewellery.
5. I will always strive to be better.
No matter what I do, what I become I will always push myself to be better whether that be better at photography, blogging or being a better person. I will always be looking for ways to progress further. The moment you think you’ve maxed out your potential you’ll stop being the best at what you do or the best person you can be.
So, there we have it. God, it was hard. For a post that was supposed to go up Wednesday, and then Thursday and here we are on Friday finally posting it so the world can see. I have been constantly umming and ahhing about posting this and honestly, I don’t really know why.
Thank you for reading and please, tell me 5 things that you love about yourself, I’d honestly love to know.
