Thursday Thoughts: On Being Obsessed with Yourself



Okay, so let's talk about me for a second.  I'm frikken AWESOME.  Seriously, I am.  I'm not perfect and I will never claim to be perfect, but I'm pretty damn close.

Is it weird that I have over 100 selfies on Instagram?  No.  Is it weird that I have 5 different mirrors in my closet just so I don't miss seeing myself on the way out?  Not at all.  Is it weird to have a mirror directly under my computer screen angled right to my face so I can look at how gorgeous I am throughout the day?  Absolutely not.

You know the term "Look good, feel good, do good"?  I live by that term.  I believe that when you look good on the outside, it makes you feel good on the inside and that, in turn, makes you want to do good and be AMAZING.  You have to take pride in the way you look and be confident in who you are in order to do epic shit and help others do epic shit too.

Some people may say that being so into myself is shallow and vain, but why?  What is so shallow about loving yourself and showing it?  If you don't look or feel awesome, how will anyone else know that you really are awesome?  Think about it:  you're your best promoter!

And yes, some days we just feel crappy.  That's life.  But if you need a quick boost of confidence to get back on the awesomeness track, here's a few quick tricks:

1.  Take a selfie.  It sounds shallow, but taking a good photo of yourself can really boost your self-love.  And seeing all the likes you get on it only multiplies that feeling.

2.  Put on some makeup.  One of the best things about being a girl is getting to play with makeup.  If you need a quick boost, throw on a coat of mascara or a swipe of lipstick to change up your look without going overboard.

3.  Dance for yourself.  Seriously.  Turn on your favorite song and dance in front of the mirror!  It'll instantly make your day seem a whole lot more exciting and you'll feel energized and ready to take on the day.  Bonus points for singing or lip-syncing!

See, aren't these tips just as fun and awesome as I am?  I know, right?  You've got to live with yourself for the rest of your life.  So love yourself.  HARD.
 
Now tell me, how awesome are you?

  5. No what people say, everyone judges a book by its cover, initially. You have to present the best self you have. Why would you want to present your worst self, right? You are awesome, girl. I think it's all about balance. Telling yourself awesome to boost your spirits and confidence but also knowing that there's always room for improvement. I think I'm awesome because I cook dinner every night (when it's my week to cook). And I can do it while a crawling baby gets into everything. Erg.

  6. Too funny! I actually avoid looking in mirrors- getting my hair done is always torture because I have to sit in front of one. But I love your tips!
