Dear, You.

You have such a beautiful story ahead of you. There is so much more to experience and love. Treat yourself kindly, and the world will bring love to you in abundance. I want it to shower over you like all the stars around our planet swirls throughout your body and into your very soul- because feeling good and beautiful within is something you truly deserve. Whether it be you, me, the people you love, the people you dislike, the folk you see in the street or on the tv, we all live most of our lives inside our own heads. We can become our own foes, and struggle with our thoughts in such despair, that we can see nothing but the world shrinking away.

Let’s make sure that our minds are nice places to be.

We weren’t born with a purpose of causing trouble, disliking ourselves and limiting our own potential. We are wondrous beings made of millions of stars, particles, of blood and bone. We all have dark and light within us, it is how we deal with our experiences that define us and how we see the world around us. We gotta allow ourselves to feel everything we feel; whether it be sadness, happiness, love, guilt, fear or anger. Harness your power within to manipulate how you experience it. You have the power within you to create such a beautiful life. A beautiful story. What we think, how we react- is what we ultimately become. Your discontent and frustrations are entirely your own creations. We all harness our thoughts in such ways, that they can either become exceedingly good, or downright bad. What a power you hold!! That if you can believe, and be kind to yourself- that your world will evolve into such a wonderful thing. That is the true beauty within us.

You have the power inside yourself, despite your experiences or background, to make your world a joyful and irrevocably happy one. That despite your tribulations, you are the ruler of your own kingdom. Cherish that. Feel that. Make the world inside you bursting with love and joy, that the world around you reflects that.

How Do I Stay Content With What I Have?

Good Morning my lovelies! How are you? Today I thought to do a post on being content. I think sometimes all we need is to feel good with the things we have and how we feel right now, rather than striving for this happiness we see, but cannot reach. This is a nod towards our consumerist culture, as we feel we need to obtain new shiny things, in order to having-it-allfeel that sense of content. Happiness comes from within my beauties! But we cannot help but feel like we could be that little bit happier if we achieved our goals, or bought that new bag from the autumn/winter collection…(As you can tell, I totally relate to this).

So how do we stay content with what we have? Here’s 3 things to think about.

  • Try not to compare yourself to what others have. What would happen if you had all the fortunes in the world? Would that make you feel happier? I very much doubt it. You have worked and earned your fortunes with an honest heart, and you can buy whatever you wish with it. You don’t have to ‘keep up with the Jones” as the saying goes.
  • Be in the moment. Think about what you have and what you’re grateful for. Where are you sitting or standing right now? You’re in this moment, reading this post! Life is happening now, so have a little think about what got you here.
  • Love your job/career path. No matter how much you earn, or how much you feel like you’re not on the right path in your career, if you love your job- then why would you change it? Being content in your job or career is the perfect way in staying content. Find something that interests you and it will make you feel so flippin’ good! Ask yourself some questions about your career or job choice. Maybe you’ll have to accept the fact that a job with less pay comes with greater fulfilment.

❤ much love folks, and as always- keep real! x
