Okay, well last week was a complete write off in every way. It put a dent, and not a good one, into my May Goals which is disappointing, yes, but we can't dwell for too long on the past. We have to, and we will, move onwards and upwards.

I wanted to create something positive for myself, but also for you guys, if any of you are feeling down and depleted recently.

You are not worthless
Sometimes people have feelings of worthlessness because of things not going right, or feelings of sadness. Well, push those to the side and know that you are not worthless, you have meaning, you have life. Though you may not think it yet, great things will happen.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again
Don't let bumps in the road stop you from trying. Part of learning to do something is about not giving up; the more you do something, the better you'll become.

If you don't try you'll never know
You might have thoughts of doubt as to whether you can do something or not, but just try. If you don't even attempt to try to do something, you'll never know if you were good at it or not - you may be amazing at sewing but you've never picked up a needle and thread in your life. If there's something you've been burning to do but are afraid of failure then just do it. Failure is inevitable in all aspects of life but in order to get good at something you have to learn from the failures you encounter.

Nobody's perfect
Not you, not your best friend, not that flawless looking celebrity you envy every day. Absolutely no one is perfect. Everyone has their downfalls, those little annoying habits or things that they just don't like about themselves. People even have hidden fears that they never show anyone - it just goes to show that you can't judge a book by its cover.

You don't need to impress anyone but yourself
You are living nobody's life other than your own, you sculpt the way that you want your life to go. Don't let others offer to show or force you to do something that you don't want to do. You don't need to fit these people's expectations because they've got their own life to live. You just live your own and do what you want to do.

You are beautiful just the way you are
Plain and simple.

This was very therapeutic for me to write all of this down, and I hope somebody out there can get something out of this too. I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful week.

  1. Love this!
    I always live my life by "if you don't want to do it, don't."
    I think if you do something you don't wanna do you're just going to bring everyone else down and you wont try your best so it's just a waste of time!

    1. I love that mantra; you shouldn't have to feel pressured into doing something you're really not happy with. It's been pretty relevant in my life recently, but I said no and do feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders :) Thanks for popping by!

  2. I love this post, just what I needed. Thankyou for this, such a lovely reminder <33

    I get torn between treat people how you want to be treated & treat others how they treat you.

    1. Thanks Katie, I'm glad it helped you :) I think treat people how you want to be treated is a better one, at the end of the day you've got nothing to worry about as long as you're being nice to other people. Mean people look worse when they're treating you badly. Thanks for reading :)

  3. I love all of these so much! I think it's very important to try again if you don't succeed. But you have to remember that doing over and over again and seeing that it is hopeless isn't an option too. I try to live by this quote by Gandhi:
    "Be the change that you wish to see in the world".

    1. Ah yeah I think I almost put one in there along the lines of it's okay to give up which I do agree with but I decided on a more positive 'you can do this' vibe :) I do totally agree with it though! That's a good quote though, I like that. Thanks for stopping by, Leta!
