Embrace yourself!

I tend to be very self satisfied and I don’t want to it to be seen as being self obsessed, but often times in the kind of society we live in, people barely seem to love themselves. They are constantly worried what others would think about them or that someone else is better than them and that’s why people like me are classified as being conceited. I love myself because I know that there must’ve been a reason why god made me the way I am, flaws and all. I know that it is my flaws that differentiate me from the rest of the world and that’s why I’ve come to accept that they are a part of me and that’s why I don’t hate myself and I’m not in a constant battle with myself to win against myself. Everybody is different, there are not two people in the world that are the same, no matter how much they have in common, so why don’t we all stop hating and mentally abusing ourselves and give ourselves some credit for being the amazing people that we are. If you learn to love yourself, you will learn to love those around you, making them feel loved and in turn they’ll love themselves too and in no time the world would a happy place to live on.

My literature Sir once said, “People who hate other people, actually hate themselves, while people who embrace themselves, learn to love everyone else around them.”

So take a moment to thing about how wonderful you are and embrace your personality. Trust me you will feel loved and will give love to others in no time.

Happy loving.

Choices

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” Eleanor Roosevelt

We all know that the choices We make are the ones that shape our lives, yet sometimes we may make choices that may not necessarily be good for us, and we may only realize that after a few months or years of making the choice. At this realization, we may beat up ourselves up about it and regret what the choices that we had made, but what we fail to realize is that all those choices and all the consequences that followed it, have made us what we are today. If we hadn’t made the choice then, we might’ve never known that it was wrong for us, and we may have ended up making that mistake in the future where it may have done a more bigger damage. I have made A LOT of wrong choices in life…Wrong choices about life, boys, career, friends etc, but what I have realized is that those choices made me what I am today. Yes, I may not be in the best of situations, but I do have the strength to go through the rough path and make a new beginning. I realized that being young and making those wrong choices was better for me than growing up and making them, because at least now I have the time to correct them and start fresh. I realized that there was no point in regretting and despairing over my choices because by doing that I would’ve chosen not to do anything to correct the wrong choices, so instead I chose to let go of them and make new, better choices. Another thing that has helped me move on is the belief that whatever happens, happens for a reason. I believe that there is a Greater power that controls our lives, and I believe that He knows what is best for us. So next time you realize that you’ve made a choice that is not good for you, know that there is something good behind it, even though you may not see immediately.

Pheonix

Image

I wandered freely as a mare
That pranced o'er high grounds and planes
When all at once I heard a sound
As sweet as water from a spring
On a high branch of a tree
She sang a beautiful melody

She had feathers the color of red wine
That outdid the blazing sun of May
She seemed like a painting that was divine
And held its head high everyday
She guided herself between the rainbow by chance
And twisted and turned as if in romance

(Parody of the poem Daffodils by William Wordsworth)

A new beginning

Image
The early morning sun set its eyes on my face
Bringing hope to my life with a new grace
I had to forget the faults I made in my past 
to find happiness and peace at last

The walls of my room began to come alive 
Every time I saw them with new eyes
The mistakes of my past began to fade away
And an urge to do everything right came my way 

The world outside seemed so new to see 
And all of a sudden sadness felt far away from me 
the flowers that only yesterday seemed so dead
Were now blooming and looking forward to the day instead 

I walked through the busy lanes
Forgetting the old sorrow and pain
The past had always been a terrible mess
But this new beginning would be the greatest and best
