Hey everyone! It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a Self Love Saturday but I’m back with a goodie.
We all have those moments where we’re stuck in a rut – we’re uninspired, we’re sick to death of feeling inadequate when we scroll through Instagram and see other people’s perfectly curated lifestyles on their gleaming highlight reel, then we wind up questioning ourselves of what our purpose is.
In these moments, it can be so tempting to stay stuck in a negative mindset where there is a laser focus on where you are and how that isn’t where you want to be and feel your hope dwindling in how you’re even going to make it to where you want to be.
Here’s the thing, our future is shaped by those small small choices that we make everyday. You want to get more organised? Well you better start by making your bed! You want to be an iconic artist? Well you have to start painting your first piece then! You want to become a bomb ass graphic designer? Well you better start watching some tutorials online.
Make it a priority to actually do the actions that will shape you to being who you want to be.
Perfect example that relates to me right now is getting back in shape. I feel rather rubbish when I’m struggling at the gym in my oversized top, feeling like an absolute weakling struggling to get through a set. But none of that really matters, because I’m doing the stuff that is creating my most badass self and I have every reason to be happy and proud of myself for that. I’m not quite where I’d like to be but I’m on my way, and that’s far more progressive then where I was before!
Take pride in the small actions you’re doing with the knowledge that you’re making your future badass self proud. She’s looking back at you smiling at how you’re starting to create the masterpiece of yourself.
Life is never going to feel amazing and fulfilling if you place your happiness in those moments where everything seems perfect. It’s going to feel fulfilling when you choose to support yourself no matter what and treat yourself with as much love and support in the moments where you’re getting started as you would in the moments where you’re getting all the awards.
The world is your oyster, and okay, you’re just getting started or are in still in the middle stages but you’re creating your best future and that is an achievement all in itself. Also, you don’t need to know the full staircase of how you’re going to get to where you want to be – you just need to be taking steps which are productive and encourage you to grow.
