Last night, I was laying in bed and I couldn’t sleep (again). I grabbed my phone and started messing around on Twitter. As I scrolled through the tweets, a phrase popped in my head. “Be yourself. Be confident. Be brave.” I tweeted it out, closed my eyes, and fell asleep. It was like I just had to get it out. This morning I wake up, and I realize how vital this phrase is in my life right now.
For the past few days I was racking my brain trying to figure out what to post today on Valentine’s Day. Known as the official day of love, writing a traditional post telling you how much I love you was way to easy. But, as I was listening to music today I came across P!nk’s song F**kin’ Perfect. That’s when it hit me.
Last week I wrote a post titled “I Think it’s Time for a Personal Beauty Intervention.” I wrote about the struggles we go through when it comes to personal beauty and how we’re always criticizing ourselves. I made a point to emphasize how our level of self-esteem is contagious. Sometimes we don’t realize how that affects others around us.
