At a time where on seemingly every corner we are being served different ways of behaviours and fashion trends it is easy to fall in the trap of those dark alleys of your mind and to get lost on your own journey.
And all that only to be accepted by society, to get sombody’s confirmation that we are worth more if we blindly follow the imposed directions and rules…
We are falling victim to a time in which success is being measured by grades at school, university, by diplomas, wealth and status.
We are falling victim to the fashion industry, which is pressuring us into being perfect all the time.
No, it’s not acceptable for us women to have wrinkles, cellulite or a few extra pounds on our hips… And if you have a little less, it is presumed that something must be wrong with you.
No, it’s not okay to be just the way you are. It is so, because it is considered wrong to embrace your femininity, with all your uniqueness and flaws.
We become insecure and full of doubt. We start to value ourselves by other people’s criteria. We are surrounded by people who instead of supporting us only critique us. We allow people from the outside to have an influence, whether that is our family, friends or partners. We want to please everyone but ourselves and we blame ourselves if others aren’t satisfied.
Isn’t that sad? To not be what you want to be, not do what you love, not embrace life the way you want…
Because of all that:
I promise myself that I will always love myself, exactly the way I am.
I promise myself that I will always be my own biggest support, the team I am cheering for.
I promise myself that I will get back up every time I fall down and never quit.
I promise myself that I will not allow other people’s comments to have an impact on me.
I promise myself that I will smile more and love even harder.
I promise that I will live my life inspiring other people.
I promise to always surround myself with people who touch my heart and feed my soul.
I promise to respect my authenticity and to always be proud of myself.
I promise that I will love every part of me as if it was the most perfect.
I promise that I won’t feel ashamed for my flaws.
I promise myself that I will free myself of habits and beliefs that don’t serve me.
I promise myself that I will always trust my inner voice and intuition more than the voices of other people around me.
I promise myself to let love fill my heart, no matter how many times I was hurt.
I promise myself that I will be brave enough to run in my own race.
And you my dears? What would you promise to yourself?
Lots of love,
