Lifestyle Challenge: Confidence READ

There are a lot of posts like this but please read because it could change the way you look at life. It is long but life changing. I wrote it not sugar coated so please read! Read it with an open mind & heart and it will inspire you. Please reblog because so many people need to hear this!!
1. When you wake up look in the mirror and say, “ I am beautiful”
2. Don’t shrug people’s comments, say to them “I do care but if you are awful enough to say that to me, why am I listening to douche bags”
3. Try and compliment people on things you like about them, it may be apparent but everyone has insecurities.
4. Stop judging other people. Of course it is only human but there is a line where you can’t find anything nice to say and all that negativity might not be said but it can be seen. When you see something “unique” about someone . Think to yourself, wow! they went outside the box. respect people’s loves and interests. being like everyone else doesn’t exactly make you who you are it just makes you unoriginal. It is okay to enjoy things other people to but don’t be another face be the face people remember for the good.
5. Don’t judge people from glance. I used to do this and I thought to myself. What if other people judged me this way? I would be torn knowing someone didn’t think I was good enough to even talk to. Make conversation and brighten their day because who can’t use some.
6. Be thankful for the people you have in your life. People aren’t appreciated enough and feel used and unwanted so make them feel loved.
7. Don’t examine the past. Everyone says stop dwelling on the past so don’t dwell on others. People who have broke your trust may be untrustworthy. If it isn’t troublesome you can slowly let people back into your life that you miss. Don’t trust to quickly but don’t diss to quickly. People can have a change of heart if they really want it. Have you changed?
8. When you look in the mirror stop dwelling on the flaws and impurities because there are more things to be thankful for then to be sad about. Honestly, if anyone is judging you for your flaw, they aren’t worthy of your respect. See the beauty in others and you will see it in yourself.
9. Don’t compare yourself to other people. You will never be in their body. You have your own for a reason to make a difference, you might think well why can’t I be pretty like them. You can’t see the beauty in yourself but others can. Someone looks at you and admires your beauty and just love seeing you. Trust me, people who bully others aren’t looking for a fulfilling life, they are looking for satisfaction because they can’t find it anywhere else. All those people you see partying and snapchatting how amazing their life is, they want other people to know so that you can be jealous. Some people it isn’t their intention but say to yourself I like being in bed watching Netflix because it makes me happy. Be happy for others and keep an open mind. If you are secure in yourself, you shouldn’t need other people saying,“ I wish I had your life” if you were supposed to be them, you can would be but you aren’t. So you were made different for the good.
10. Bullies are mean but the biggest bully is yourself. Stop treating yourself like shit and respect yourself if you want others to. Stop laying your head down in the hall. Put your head up and rock what you got. If you bully yourself you’re internally punching your heart, that’s more damaging than anything anybody can say. If someone says something to you that has a negative impact on your self esteem. Lots of people will say dust it off which really means hide it deep in your heart. Tell that person up front to stop, with all seriousness if that person has a heart they will act like they don’t care but dwell. Heartless losers don’t have an opinion because it’s all blank space in their heart so hey should have no impact.

Look to God and thank him for everything! You are so blessed and it is amazing you’re alive so live life to the happiest and fullest!!

These are pretty hard tasks but I have been really putting life in perspective and what are you doing with your life if you aren’t happy. You can be incredibly successful yet it doesn’t mean anything if you aren’t happy with who you are not you’re accomplishments. please reblog, I spent a lot of time thinking about this topic and I came up with this so please share and actually try and you can see a change, trust me I have.

I love that you love your body. I've been struggling for years to try and make peace with my own ... do you have any advice?

I struggle with this every day. I look in the mirror and hate so much of what I see and I don’t know if that feeling will ever go away. But here are some things I’ve learned. I’m not sure what your image issues are, but most of mine are weight related, so there may be a focus on that. So I apologize in advance if this doesn’t feel like it fits your needs. If you have other questions feel free to ask! But here goes…

You only have one life and one body. You have to learn to love it no matter how it looks, or else life just ain’t going to be much fun. 

Sometimes if I’m having a really bad body image day, I stare at the mirror and make myself find things I like about myself. You have to learn to combat negativity with positivity, that’s a life tip. You can apply that anywhere.

I used to work out about 4 or 5 days a week and I really started to build muscle and trim my belly (my most hated part of my body.) During this time, I felt really good about my body. It helped build some confidence and in general I think I was happier more fun to be around. It’s true that exercise has a profound impact on your mental state. Many studies have been done on this, we know that. 

HOWEVER. Even after all the working out and watching my body transform, I still had days where I hated my body. I could never lose enough weight or build enough muscle. There was always one guy more muscular, one guy more lean, one guy that could run longer, one guy that could lift more. One guy that had whiter teeth, better skin, better hair, better hands, better nails. The list GOES ON. At some point you have to realize that if you are going to love your body, you have to make that choice on your own. 

Take time daily to talk positively to yourself. Pay attention to negative things you say in your head or out loud and try to minimize it. 

That’s about all I can think of. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate. Hope this helps my beautiful friend! : )
