Thursday Thoughts…What If You Dared To Be Yourself…๐Ÿ’ž

Do you always wish you were someone else?๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ Do you ever wish you could live someone else’s life???

I know those of us who suffer from mental illness hhave these thoughts all the time, but what if you dared to be You and only You?????? 

Thereโ€™s no need for you to imitate anybody else; they already exist. Do you want to be just like your colleague? If the Creator wanted two identical colleagues, then He would have created a copy of the first. If the Creator needed another person just like your neighbor, then He would have immediately created two of them. He never cloned somebody, so why would you? Every snowflake is different. Creation is not duplication.Repeat that….Instead of copying an existing model, He created a whole new YOU! Why? Because He needs you to be just the way you are! Why bother and try to be somebody else?Donโ€™t imitate others. Observe them, learn from them, but donโ€™t try to be like them. Learn their skills but then implement them in your own life and move forward on your own road. Because you are walking your own road, you cannot follow the footsteps of somebody else, nor can someone else walk your road for you. They have their road, you have yours.Why did the Creator give all of us different fingerprints, different ears, different noses? Wouldnโ€™t it have been much easier for Him to make all of us out of a single mold? One model; no differences, no comparisons. He could have done it, but He didnโ€™t. Why not? Apparently He needs us to be individual. He needs us to be different. Certainly this fact adds to the pleasure of the game. If all the characters in the play were alike, then it wouldnโ€™t be much fun to watch. He surely likes us all to be different. And He surely needs us all to be different!Given the undisputed fact that we are all different, why would you try to be like somebody else? Why change your looks or your body with plastic surgery? Why not be happy with the way you are? Iโ€™m not just talking about appearance, but also about talents. Character. Everybody is unique. While longing for talents you donโ€™t have, you are neglecting those talents that you do have. This is rather counter-productive, no? You have been gifted with a unique set of talents, so find out what they are and develop them.There is no coincidence. Everything in the universe exists for a reason. You are not talented by accident! Neither is it haphazard that you donโ€™t have some talents you would like to have.
If you donโ€™t have a nightingale voice, you were not meant to sing. You can do something else with your life according to the talents you do have, and leave the singing to someone who is naturally equipped for that. If you have no acting talents, you should not act. If you weigh too much, youโ€™d better start dreaming about something else than being a fashion model.Another undisputed fact is that everybody is gifted with his or her own unique talents. Make no mistake! Talents are not only about activities like singing, acting, dancing, painting, writing or excellence in sports. Your unique talent could be your spontaneity, your enthusiasm, your connection with animals, caring for the disabled, your generosity, being a good teacher or public speaker, being a loving community member, or being a good problem solver. It could be your capacity to love, your natural joy, your brilliance, intelligence, easily assimilating new languages, radiating beauty, having a funny way of expressing yourself, making others laugh, kindness, tenderness, and many more. The list of possible talents is very, very long indeedโ€ฆso dare to be you my dear!!!!! Just think of how wonderful it would be!!!๐Ÿ˜˜Have an amazing day friends…๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญLife Empowerment Mentor/Transformation Coach”Helping women like myself who suffer from depression…build their confidence up in life, businesses, and relationships!

How to Combat Being Alone in 4 Quick Steps๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

#selflove

โฃ๏ธI know it’s easier said than done, but being alone is ok? Stop jumping into relationships because you can’t stand the loneliness!

Here are 4 Tips to help combat the lonely days.

Use these steps to help you stop feeling the need for companionship. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

๐Ÿ’žGet Comfortable Being Alone

Enjoy your own company. Take time out to get to know yourself better. Write a journal and chart your thoughts and feelings when you are feeling lonely. Take yourself out on dates, be it for a dinner at a nice restaurant or a movie that youโ€™ve been waiting to see. Once you are comfortable with your own company, other people are more likely to enjoy spending time with you as well.

๐Ÿ’žGet Animal Companionship ๐Ÿถ(my fav)

Thereโ€™s nothing quite like having a dog waiting for you by the door when you get home, or a cat purring on your pillow. Animals make marvellous companions โ€“ they love unconditionally and are unfailingly loyal. Walking your dog can be a great way to meet new people as well. Smaller animals such as hamsters or geckos can also make you feel needed if you do not want to commit to getting a dog or cat.

๐Ÿ’žGet Out of the House

Get out of the house when you can instead of allowing yourself to wallow in loneliness.Go outside, get some fresh air, go to the mall, the park or even just the grocery store. Make an effort to speak to at least someone, even if itโ€™s only a sales assistant.

๐Ÿ’žGet Involved in a Local Cause

Are you concerned about the environment? Passionate about inner-city education? Volunteer your time and skills at the local library, civic organization, or charitable foundation. Helping others will make you feel good about yourself, occupy your mind, and stop you from thinking about how alone you are. Having a shared interest is also a great way to develop new friendships.

Now…all of these tips I have actually used before I met my hubby! I learned so much about myself during this time!

Ladies self~love also means enjoying YOU!

It’s Valentines Day, Who Better to Love Than Yourself!!

Well today is all about love day, and why we are showing love to our spouses, kids, and co-workers, don’t forget about yourself.

You will develop the ability to truly love who you are, and you can accept yourself fully. So recite these affirmations this morning, brush your hair, and head out that door with confidence. This day isn’t just about loving somebody else, it’s about loving you too. Happy Valentines Day!!!
