We live in an age where we are constantly bombarded with people’s highlight reels. We see the perfect images on the gram and all the successful life updates on Facebook or Twitter. It is so easy to get caught up in comparing your day to day with their highlights. But gurl, I am here to tell you that there is so much more to life than what you see on social media. The following are some principles to live by that I am embracing through my daily lifestyle.
4 Powerful Principles To Live By
Stop The Comparison
In order to accept yourself, you must love yourself. Love your strengths, your flaws, your chaos and everything in between. Your life is yours to live and you were created for a wonderful purpose. Believe that!
Accept You For You
If anyone hasn’t told you today ‘you are beautiful’ Well stand in front of the mirror and admire your endless beauty. You are strong and courageous and able to handle any curveballs life throws your way. All you need to do is have a little faith in yourself. Believe in your goals and dreams. Look back on your accomplishments and give yourself a pat on the back. Self-acceptance starts within.
You Have The Power To Choose
One of the most valuable principles to live by. You are the pilot of your own life. Once you are able to realize your strengths and weakness, you can make the adjustments you need to make accordingly. And the best part is that you have the power to make your life better if you so desire. There are tons of books and podcasts and valuable resources to aid in self-improvement. Don’t stay stuck! If there is an area of your life that you want to improve, research it! Read about it, google it, find out how the most successful people overcame this hurdle. You got this.
I truly believe that our journey is never over. There is always room to grow as an individual and as a professional. This doesn’t mean you need to perfect. It simply means that it’s okay to re-evaluate where you are and find places in your life that could use improvement. In order to grow, we must continually self-analyze. This life is a beautiful journey and your story is yours to write.
