Motivation Monday

If I had one piece of advice to give to anyone it would be to BE YOURSELF. In a world where we are consumed with social media, fashion, make up, who's eyeliner is the most "on fleek", it gets exhausting not to mention confusing on trying to figure out who's who and who's really different. It can be easy to conform to what everyone else is doing. You see someone posting similar things that are getting a lot of likes so you figure you can do the same but, does that really make you happy? Is that something you really want to do? Do you enjoy putting up what you think people will like? When did it ever become so wrong to be you and that be enough?
I'll speak from experience; it's so hard to not look at other pictures of perfect girls and then go back to yourself and start picking yourself apart. "Why don't I have hair like that?" "I wish I was thinner." The list goes on. But after awhile, you get tired of it. You have to realize that you are your own person and that is initially what is going to set you apart from everyone else. You, too can have pretty hair. You are beautiful. You are pretty in your own way. There is no template that you have to follow to be pretty. There shouldn't be. There are so many different kinds of beautiful and pretty that we are allowed to choose which kind to be. Let alone our own kind. Stop trying to fit into this certain kind of stigma where our makeup always has to be done, we have to be skinny, eyebrows have to be on fleek, lips have to be full, etc. If everyone looked the same then wouldn't it start to get..old? We'll all start to look the same and then what will we have to offer that's different? Show the world who you are and what you have to bring to the table. Stop comparing yourself to others and start looking at yourself. Look to yourself and know that you are beautiful. Don't forge to fall in love with yourself first. You only get one self anyway, might as well enjoy the person you are.
