I WISH I WAS A LITTLE BIT TALLER, I WISH I WAS THINNER, I WISH I WAS SMARTER, I WISH, I WISH, I WISH, TOO MANY TIMES WE FOCUS ON WHAT WE DO NOT HAVE RATHER THAN TO EMBRACE WHAT WE DO HAVE AND LOVE WHO WE ARE OR IS THIS BECAUSE OTHERS HAVE MADE YOU BELIEVE YOU WEREN’T GOOD ENOUGH?
“In order to find real happiness, you must learn to love yourself for the totality of who you are and not just what you look like”
You would laugh at me when I told you I was in love with myself, you thought I was narcissistic. You told me to lose some weight not because you cared about my well being but because in time, I just wouldn’t be attractive enough.
You told me to not speak so loudly because heaven forbid people would hear me speak and would have an opinion of how I chose to express myself. You told me a lot of things, not because you cared but because you were more worried of whatever the fuck others thought.
In your own world you had an image of what “perfect” should be or what you believed it to be? even worst you allowed others to determine your happiness! I feel so blessed and thankful that I was one of those strong individuals who just never gave a fuck about your opinions!
Why do you choose to allow others to tell YOU how you should look? What you should feel? or how you should ever choose to express yourself? The problem is many of us do and for some reason you have allowed others to determine what your happiness should be…but WHY?
“Happiness isn’t something that depends on our surroundings. It is something that we create from within…”
If I ever believed or payed attention to every negative comment out there, I would have never grown to become the confident woman I am today. If I listened to every bit of negative “noise” of others telling me I couldn’t accomplish my dreams? I would never strive to be successful. If I ever allowed anyone to control my own “happiness” or to determine when I could be happy, I would of never grown to love myself as much as I do… Not because I think I am perfect, fuck perfect, not because I am narcissistic, it is because I love myself and truly believe with all of my heart that I create and have created my OWN HAPPINESS.
I believe we are the first to lay out the bricks to our foundation of happiness in life. What I am saying is we choose the paths we wish to take, we choose what we wish to listen to and believe in, we choose to determine what makes us happy. Yes I get it, I know others can help empower us or add to our happiness but YOU must first and foremost lay out your bricks to this foundation before anyone else can be a part of this path.
“Believe in YOURSELF…”
For every time someone calls you “fat” or “unattractive“, believe that you are perfect the way you are as long as you are happy! For every time you were told you would not make it in life or be successful. I promise you, you will be as long as you never give up, want it bad enough and keep striving for more. For each and every time someone has a negative comment to throw you off your path of life, I’m telling you, YES YOU to hang on that much more tighter and keep trying because I promise you, you will succeed.
Unfortunately, those that are not happy in life, choose to destroy the dreams of those are want more in life. Don’t allow others to bring you down, don’t allow them the power to make you stop believing in yourself. Wipe away all of those tears or broken pieces, because “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never break me…”
Fall in love with yourself everyday
Believe in yourself everyday and
Just grow to love who you are everyday…
When you come to a point when you control your own happiness and not allow others to control how happy you should or should not be, I promise you my dear, you will hit a level of happiness you never DREAMT possible.
