Comparing ourselves with others does nothing but cripple our confidence, ambition, goals, and life purpose. Let’s just stop! You be you, and let them be them. We were all created on purpose for a purpose, stop wasting time, and start living it!
Taking care of ourselves isn’t selfish…it is our responsibility. When we take better care of ourselves, we are able to take better care of others. Plus, we are modeling the importance to the next generation. Do something for YOU today! 🙂
Easy Idea: Take a Lavender Bath!
Unlike chemical laden bath washes and bubbles, Lavender can:
- Relieve anxiety and stress
- Improve sleep
- Reduce acne and improve the overall complexion
- Combat the signs of aging
- Ease headaches
- Alleviate psoriasis
Just put about 7 drops (a little bit goes a long way), with a tablespoon of carrier oil or a cup of epsom salts in your bath water and you are all set! Easy, safe, powerful, and oh so luxurious!
At a time when everyone seems to be shouting… desperate to be heard, noticed, and valued, I find this rather comforting. We don’t have to try to be important. We don’t have to have the world’s endorsement to be secure in ourselves. Our confidence should not depend on whether or not people agree with us, and we always have a place where we belong…
What an important reminder that how we view ourselves and talk about ourselves is being watched and modeled by our girls. Teaching love and self respect are far more important than talking about the numbers on a scale or putting pressure on ourselves to look a certain way. What if we focused more what it means to be truly healthy than what it means to be a certain size or fit into a certain stereotype?
