Todays reflection ♥
One thing I find myself thinking a lot about is Self love. In todays society with movies, magazines & social media everything has gotten superficial. People want to look like others and be like others so they’ve totally forgotten about themselves. A lot of people are preoccupied wanting to change themselves into other people they look up to, and they forget about their own talents, abilities and looks. People tend to forget their own strengths and what makes them unique. Why does everyone have to have big lips, behinds and be thin? Why does everyone want to look like the Hadids, sing like Beyonce and act like Viola Davis? I mean hey I would too but that doesn’t mean I forget me, myself & I.
It is nothing wrong with looking up to someone and wanting to be like them, to a certain degree but don’t lose yourself on the way. Focus on your look; what do you like about yourself (highlight that!) & what do you like less about yourself (learn to love it!)? Focus on your talent and abilities; what can you bring to the table? What can you contribute to the world?
If you focus on looking like someone else and being someone else then the world loses someone like you. You were meant to be you. Don’t make us have a billion Kardashians and none of You.
What I disliked most about myself was my smile, I used to not like how my teeth were bigger than others and how much they were showing when I smiled and laughed. I learned to see it from another perspective and learned to love it. Now I see it as a good thing; when I smile/laugh you can see it through my whole face and my big smile! I love that it shows so much when I am happy!
What do you Love about yourself? What do you dislike about yourself? How can you change that? #SELFLOVE
– Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤
