I was scrolling though my timehop this morning and came across this which I posted a year ago. I felt like this was still so relevant to my life right now. Reading this really does make me realise that I've spent most of my life hating myself, putting myself down, criticising every thing I do. I'm always worried that I'm never going to find love, or that I'm never going to 'love' myself and be happy. The way this has been written makes me feel pretty annoyed because I know we've all heard it before "You only live once" but this one life that I'm living I'm spending it with all these negative vibes about myself and a fear of what other people think. I've surrounded myself with all this negativity that only comes from my own mind. Yes there's negativity around me they'll be people who doubt me and they'll be negativity in general. But really at the end of the day It's me who controls what I think about life and what I think about myself.
I love how this has been written because it really does remind you that this life we have is actually very short. We shouldn't be wasting these precious hours that we have hating ourselves, hating other people, or hating life. We should be appreciative of the fact we have been put on this earth for a reason and use that reason to make the most of everything that you have when you can. From now on I'm going to try my hardest to not pressure myself about finding love, and instead I'm going to try all I can to love myself. The right person will come alone when the time is right. I'm going to make the use of these days and try to get rid of all that negativity inside of me and instead fill it with positive things.



  1. Loving yourself if the best kind of love. Surround yourself with positivity girl!

  2. I am the sort of person that is always comparing my looks to my friends and even strangers in the street, I always have to remind myself that I am never going to look like them, because I am supposed to look like me! It's difficult but your post summed it up - you only live once and we should all be blessed for the body that we have been given. All you can do is look after it as best as you can! :)

  3. I do too! Comparing yourself to other people is the worst thing you can do though because like you say you can only be yourself and you can never be any one else. That's what I always remind myself :) And that's very true we've just gotta learn to love ourselves and look after ourselves as much as we can :) xxx

  4. What a great and inspiring post! I love the picture you posted. It makes me think twice about things... that I shouldn't be negative and be more laid back like I used to be when I was younger. x


  5. I'm really bad for wasting time worrying and feeling bad about myself and comparing and criticising myself! This post is so true, life is ridiculously short. Good on you - you don't have to answer to anyone but yourself. And love always comes along when you take some pressure off yourself, cliche but true :)
