Being Confidently Unique!!

 

“If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it – through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated.”

 Victoria Moran

Hey Beauties,

I was supposed to add a post yesterday but I was experiencing some technical difficulties. My apology to you all. Here is my inspired word for today =)

What does it mean to be unique? Being unique means to not have any like or equal; unparalleled; incomparable. I like to say that being unique is…standing apart or standing out. We were each created to make our own mark on the world. We were each fearfully and wonderfully made. God knows every strand of hair on our heads and has predestined our path in life (strictly my beliefs). He made us SO unique that not one of us have the same fingerprint. I was sent on this earth to be different from you and likewise.

So often we get sucked into this mentality of conforming instead of learning how to be comfortable and confident in our uniqueness. We start feeling self-conscious by noticing that we’re standing out or not fitting in when in actuality…that’s what we were created for. We have to learn that it is ok to make our own imprint. My message is not for us to become recluse or socially awkward but to be ok with not always fitting into the normal pattern of things. The society we live in shapes our thoughts about how things should be or at least how society THINKS things should be. This conformed thinking can cause us to doubt ourselves, our uniqueness. We start the battle in our minds. For example: fat vs. skinny, short vs. tall, black vs. white, short hair vs. long hair, etc. God has made us each different to create the diversity we see each day. Just think about what our world would be like if we were all the same or if we all thought the same thoughts. Greatness is not born in conformity!! Think about all the people who made an impact in this world. The Malcolm X’s, the MLK’s, the Benjamin Banneker’s, the George Washington Carver’s. I’m sure people thought they were radical and they were OK with it! Be ok with being your unique self.

Don’t force yourself into the “box”! Be confident in the knowledge that sometimes your position is outside of the box. There is nothing wrong with that =)

Until next time, let’s continue to BmoreBeautiful

Pamper Time!

“If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.” – Barbara De Angelis

Hey Beauties,

So often, we cater to the needs of our spouses, significant others, children, jobs, families, etc. What about YOU? Do you take the time to cater to yourself? Pampering yourself is not a selfish act. In order to be beneficial to the people in our lives, we must first be beneficial to ourselves. Catering to yourself should be a PRIORITY, not an after-thought. If you make pampering yourself a priority, it will be less likely that it gets pushed to the back of the to-do list. Sometimes all you need is an hour or two to love you. You have to believe that you’re worth it and that you deserve it! There is no need to feel guilty or selfish. Think of all the time you dedicate to others. Don’t you deserve some of that attention?

 

Self-Pampering Suggestions

  • Take a stroll somewhere scenic. Preferably somewhere quiet with a pond, lake, etc. It’ll give you a chance to de-stress and clear your mind
  • Send flowers to yourself. They are beautiful and have the ability to brighten a room and lighten a mood.
  • Visit a spa or create your own spa experience. You only live once! Splurge on an awesome spa experience or if your money is tight, create your own spa experience (BmoreBeautiful has a few suggestions in our Beauty Corner – See the SPA’AHHH articles)
  • Listen to soothing music or nature sounds. It really calms you and gives you a chance to relax/meditate.
  • Write a love letter to yourself and mail it.
  • Get a massage.
  • Treat yourself to some new clothes, jewelry, etc.
  • Watch your favorite movie while sipping chamomile tea

 

The possibilities are ENDLESS. You can use some of these suggestions or you can choose to be creative and find other ways to pamper and love yourself. After all…you are SOOOO worth it!

 

Until next time, continue to BmoreBeautiful! =)

Let It Go!

Hey Beauties,

 

It’s been quite some time since I’ve written to u guys. What’s been happening on my end? Life! As long as you live, that is what’s going to happen to you too lol. Honestly, at some point, I felt that this blog wasn’t really making a difference and that was my goal from the beginning. I just desired to make a difference in someone’s life, change someone’s POV, build up someone’s self-esteem, etc. Even if sometimes, that somebody was ME! I became discouraged but nothing in LIFE is achieved without hard work and dedication. Soooo…I’m back and I’m back with a vengeance. I’m also back with an inspired word =).

 

 

Ladies…so often, we hold onto people, thoughts, and situations that should have been purged from our lives LONGGGG ago. I don’t know if it’s our innate need to nurture, our fear of the unknown that lies ahead, or just fear of progression that makes us hang on for dear life to something that just needs to be LET GO! You know it’s/he’s/they’re not good for you but yet…you keep it/him/them around. Sometimes we pray for God to fix the situation. They’ll start acting different, or you just might lose interest. Newsflash: He fixed it but…SOME of us, will go right back to that person/situation again. We have to learn that everything/everyone is not meant to travel on this entire journey called Life with us. Some are meant to be around for a short while (a season). Just like Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter…seasons pass. Everyone cannot be carried into the next season.

 

As women, we have to embrace this knowledge and be OK with it. Don’t cling onto persons who are toxic for you. Let them GO! Walk confidently into your future without all that emotional baggage dragging with you. A new man or friend will come along…that I can promise you. The same way you met them, is the same way you will meet another. That new person may be designed to accompany you for the entire journey we call Life =)

 

Know your worth Ladies! Until next time…let’s continue to BmoreBeautiful  =)

 

 

A Time for Renewal

Hey Beauties,

As some of you may know, Spring is considered the season of renewal. People clean their homes, change their diets, start detoxes, and etc. Lately, I have been in deep thought about life in general and thinking of ways I can renew myself. My attitude, my diet, my ideas, and much more. I think of my body as a house and I constantly do a self-evaluation because sometimes houses need RENOVATION! After I self-evaluate,  I put a plan into motion so that my renovation will run smoothly. When renovating a real house, you don’t do all the changes at the same time. A plan has to be put in place so that the renovation will be as effortless as possible. The contractors may gut out the kitchen, then move to the dining room, and etc. This is the ideology I like to have when thinking of changes I want to make in my life. I am aware that I can’t do everything all at once and that change should be dealt with once issue at a time. So today I may work on the wallpaper and tomorrow I may work on the floor tiles. I don’t mean this literally but I do mean I will tackle one change at a time. The end result will be a beautiful home…inside AND out.

Let’s ALWAYS strive and work toward being the most beautiful people we can be =). Until next time….you know the rest!! 😉
