  • I am currently on my journey to happiness- and I know everyone says happiness is not a destination but a way of travel- well..I guess I'm on a side road finding my way to the main road? Anyway, one of the main roots of my struggle at the moment is self-confidence deriving from me disliking my body. I try my best to be more confident- I'm not going to lie and say I follow all the advice I'm putting here, because I don't, but I do try little by little step by step. I hope it helps you and remember you can message me about anything. If you want my Kik, BBM or Pintrest just ask xxx

  • Advice Number 1 (the most important to me!) :

    Surround yourself by those you love and avoid those who make you feel uncomfortable or unhappy.

    *It’s time to walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. Surround yourself with those who make you smile. Love the people who treat you right. Forget the negative and focus on the positive. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Making mistakes and falling down is a part of life, but getting back up and moving on is what LIVING is all about.

  • Surround yourself with people who compliment you, encourage you, support you, and generally make you feel like an awesome person. Being around these people will help you see that you have so much to offer to the world. Making a goal of spending time with positive, encouraging people will take you far on your quest to building self-confidence.

  • Advice Number 2:

    Never EVER change who you are for others.

    *No matter how loud their opinions are, others cannot choose who you are. The question should not be, “Why don’t they like me when I’m being me?” It should be, “Why am I wasting my time worrying what they think of me?” Be
    happy. Be yourself. If others don’t like it, then let them be. Life isn’t about pleasing everybody. Honestly- it will just make you further unhappy pretending to be someone you're not. Stay who you were born xx

    "Be Yourself. Because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind" -Dr Seuss.

  • Advice Number 3:

    Do not be a perfectionist.

    *I am very guilty of perfectionism and let me tell you- it's a habit that I absolutely hate. Perfectionism paralyzes you and keeps you from accomplishing your goals. If you feel like everything has to be done perfectly, then you'll never be truly happy with yourself or your circumstances. Instead, work on learning to be proud of a job well done instead of wanting everything to be absolutely perfect. If you're in the mindset of a perfectionist, then you'll only be getting in the way of a more confident version of yourself.

  • Advice Number 4:

    Take Care of Yourself.

    *By no means do I mean wear tons of make-up or have a new hairstyle or wear expensive clothing. What I mean is- keep healthy- drink lots of water (I have much better skin now) and have nice long warm baths to relax. Relieve yourself of stress as much as possible. 'The time when you need to relax is when you don't see there is time for it.' It's okay to have chocolate! Enjoy your life.. You only live this day once. xx Me- I do genuinely love going to the salon and being made a fuss of- but what I mean is that you can aid yourself more than you think xx

  • Do not listen to all the extremist advice about changing your body to make you feel better. If you want to be skinnier to be healthier then that's good, but do not change your body for others, it has to be for you. From experience I know that changing yourself for others will never work because you will never see your success. Take it little by little. But accept the way you are first before trying to change it. Think about your ultimate goals, don't just crash straight into it xx

  • Advice Number 5:

    Live in the Present Moment.

    *Without sounding depressing, anything could happen tomorrow, to any one of us. If we want something, feel something or have something to say, do it. Don't spend your time dwelling on something stupid you said a week ago or wondering if you offended that one guy at that one party. Don't spend it worrying about what will happen at the next party or about what you're going to wear a month from now. Instead, work on enjoying the moment you're in, the company you keep, and the beautiful things in front of you.

  • Though having a game plan for life won't hurt in moderation, life is a precious thing and you want to be able to enjoy it to the fullest by embracing the world around you.

    Yes there is an end to your journey and we always think about what that may be like-but in the end- it's about the journey. xoxox

  • I hope this helps somebody out there. I know what it's like to feel alone but I promise you- you aren't. I know everyone says 'I'm here for you' and you think 'No, you're just curious, you don't actually care' but I do. I swear to you I do care so much. All I wanted was for someone to understand. Please talk to me if you want somebody to talk to- I would never judge you- I love you all xx Remember, you are going to have bad days, you are going to cry, you are going to want to give up. But it's not how hard you fall. It's how strong you stand back up. xx
