Note to self

.

Sometimes I find it hard to motivate and believe in myself. I am having one of those moments right now. I always find it so easy to put myself down, to compare myself to others but such a great difficulty to fill my head with positive thoughts and inspirational one-liners. Pinterest helps me with those things. And Sebastian.

But I need to learn to do these things myself and it should be so easy. I need to push myself and be better than I am, I need to work harder and play harder and just smile more. 
I need to read books, I need to learn to knit, I need to bake, I need to walk further, I need to laugh harder, I need to wear more dresses, I need to make pretty things and sell pretty things, I need to save pennies, I need to dream bigger, I need to love myself.

  1. I feel like you've read my mind and wrote it down. I think sometimes we need to be more gentle with ourselves and just know that we're doing what we can to be all of those things we want and need. Stay strong and positive!

  2. I used to suffer very badly from negativity and lack of confidence, but I got sick of it too. I find reading things by inspirational people who just get things done & don't waste time on negativity is a big help. Gala Darling's posts on positivity, jealousy etc. literally changed my life when I was an extremely negative, judgemental, jealous, miserable teenager. I practiced what she preached and now I can honestly say I'm more of a positive person than a negative one. Biographies, books, blog posts, attempting to emulate positive, confident characters from TV & film (and children's book characters helped a lot too!). It all helped me, along with being gentle and trying to take care of myself the best I could. It's hard work, I'm not going to lie, it seems like it should be easy but when you're in that forcefield of negativity, it makes turning around very hard. But it's the best, best, best thing I ever did for myself.
    Best of luck, I think you are a very sweet and kind person, and if anyone deserves to live a life of confidence and positivity, it's you!

  3. I feel like this too, especially during the summer when I have so much time but feel as if I am wasting it. My boyfriend says I need to just give myself a break sometimes, and let myself relax and just do nothing for a while. Try not to push yourself too far, even little things can make up a positive attitude H xx

  4. I often feel like this, especially in an age where the internet is constantly in my face showing others having a fuller life. I always have to remind myself that internet life isn't real life and I need to stop comparing.

  5. Very very well said! I know that as well as myself, there are so many other people who feel exactly the same as you and it provides me with some comfort knowing that there are other people who feel as down and unmotivated in themselves as well.

  6. I love this, I think so many of us feel the same - I know I do! I am in a constant battle with myself to get motivated and it is an uphill struggle. I would say though, don't push yourself too hard, you will only end up stressed out!

  7. Your Pinterest posts are terrific and very resonant (hence why I keep repinning 'em! :)) -- you're not alone in feeling this at all. Don't put pressure on yourself -- replace those 'needs' with 'wants' and allow yourself a bit more fun.

  8. Lovely post...and can be interpreted for however one is feeling emotionally right now. I really need to take some time out to relax and de-stress. I'm trying to achieve and juggle so much at the moment and I know it's having an affect on my state of mind and health. x
