Hey friends, how are ya doin’ today? Hopefully you’re well. And if you’re not, well, stop what you’re doing. Close your eyes. Take a few moments to breathe in and out. Don’t let the weight of life drag you down. You got this, babe.
I want to start off this post by stating the obvious: females have it pretty tough. Among the range of societal expectations, we also have to deal with meeting unhealthy standards.
Be smart, but don’t be too smart. Be strong, but don’t be too independent. Be light, graceful, fit, healthy, glowing, malleable. Always smell good, never cuss too much, be funny and sweet, never speak your mind too much, have passions but not too many or you’ll seem like you’re trying too hard.
I hope you feeling the literal eye rolls one after another as I’m writing this. If you are also rolling your eyes, keep reading. Because it’s about to get better.
Today I want to talk about one of the biggest “expectations” women around the world are held to the standard of: being confident, but not too confident. Because loving yourself too much is wrong and evil and you will appear to be self centered, unapproachable, and overall full of yourself.
Well… I’m calling bullshit, friends. Big time.
The fact that this is even really a thing is ridiculous in the first place. Seriously, babe, you’re awesome. You are so unbelievably amazing. And you should love yourself through an through, without exceptions, just because.
And there should be no limit on loving yourself. You should love yourself and celebrate it! Dance to an awesome song in your favorite outfit. You should screaming it out loud. I’m talkin’ mega heart eye emoji’s all over the place.
I’ve met tons of amazing, influential females at all stages of their lives, and all were not completely filled to the brim with self appreciation. And there’s nothing more sad than seeing an awesome lady you admire, and finding out they genuinely can’t see just how brilliant they are. Right?
You guys, I wish it were easier. I wish we could snap our fingers and be okay like in the movies. But there are so many factors set into place that practically set our self appreciation up for failure. But ladies, 2017, we are taking our freedom back. We are breaking down boundaries, living full of love, appreciating our bodies and minds, and we are gonna come out on top singing.
Because I know this constant battle everyone goes through, and some days are better than others. There’s few people who truly wake up in the morning and love themselves wholeheartedly without first putting in some work. But I truly believe one of the most important keys to being happy in life, to succeed, to grow, is to learn to listen and love yourself at every stage of who you are, what you do, and how you appear.
Yup, you should love all the lovely bits of yourself. Your laugh, your humor, your strengths, your weaknesses, your tummy and your hips, your everything.
Because, after all, why shouldn’t you?
I’m giving you permission to take your voice back, and embrace all that makes up you.
