Be Happy In Yourself

Hey everyone,

I'm going to be doing a different sort of post today and that is a more well-being post. I don't do many of these but I thought that I would experiment more with my blog posts.

Being happy within yourself can be very hard especially if you feel you have imperfections or your not happy with the way you are but it's normal...your only human. I can safely say that I'm not happy within myself and I find ways to fix that. Sometimes we can't change those things though and we just have to live with them but that all part of being a human.

I can safely say that I wasn't happy with my weight and with everyone always telling me I had a nice slim figure I still wasn't satisfied. I'm not going to say that I went on some crazy diet and became anorexic because it didn't reach that extreme but I did cut down on what I ate especially junk food. In some cases that's a good thing what with the big encouragement of eating healthy but was I happy with not eating junk food? The answer is NO! Whenever I went out to coffee shops I would try to resist the temptation of having a cake because of all the calories in it and yeah sometime it is a good thing but when I caved in and ate the cake or whatever it was I always felt bad because I thought I was going to put on like a million pounds. I know that loads of people especially teenage girls have these thoughts but to be honest one cake wouldn't have made a difference to my weight. What I'm trying to say here is if your thinking that one cake will make a difference to your weight then it won't. If you do enough exercise and eat as healthy as possible then you will be fine.

Lately I haven't been worried about those high calorie foods because I know that I do enough exercise to burn off those types of foods. I look a celebrities and think 'I really want her figure or her hair' and in some cases it's never going to happen because our bodies are all unique and work in different ways.

Just think to yourself that other people may envy you and want a feature of yours. I know this may seem very female targeted but I know boys go through this too.  I wanted this post to make clear we all have imperfections that we wish we could change but sometimes it's just not gonna happen and that we have to learn to love ourselves and what we have got. I've learnt to love my figure and there are certain parts of me that I like (hope that doesn't sound arrogant) and yeah there are parts I want to change but that may involve surgery or a big fat wish to the imaginary fairy that I wish existed in my life.

I hope this post hasn't been too boring and long and also let me know if you want me to do more of these posts in the future.

  1. Great post. Sometimes I have this tendency to be mean and rude to people. And that gets me unhappy with myself. Especially at work because work is really frustrating. Sometimes it makes me feel like I want to quit because I don't want to turn into someone I don't want to be. But I do try to change because I don't want this negative side of me to drag me down.
