...or not, glad I got your attention! Wow, its been a long time, almost 2 years to be exact! I've been wanting to write a blog post for a while now, so here it is :).
The title of this post will probably attract a lot of attention as it seems to be the kind of thing girls and women are always searching for. Society today places huge emphasis on the 'perfect' this or the 'perfect' that and is almost always focused on trying to make us feel insecure about things we shouldn't be worrying about and giving us expensive or unrealistic 'solutions' to become or look 'better'. Well this is what has prompted my desire to write a new entry, and perhaps a few more.
Another thing that I am so guilty of doing almost all the time, is comparing myself to others. And at that, comparing my true self to what others choose to put on display. Instagram, facebook and other social media sites give the illusion of another person's life as 'perfect' or near 'perfect' as naturally we choose to put out all of our best and hide our worst. This is one of the worst things that you or I can do for our happiness, self esteem, confidence and general well being! But it is something that we do naturally, when looking on these social media sites, and we need to stop.
Everybody is unique, different and individual, if we were all exactly the same the world would be very boring and predictable. Appreciate and be grateful that you are different and embrace your imperfections as well as your best points. Nobody is perfect, not Victoria's Secret models (okay, maybe Candice is ;) ), not all the amazing girls on instagram, no one is perfect. Stop aiming for the unachievable and start aiming to be the BEST version of YOU. Only when we realise this will we be happy in our own skin. And I don't know about you guys, but I think I need reminding of this daily! It's so easy to constantly compare ourselves and nothing good comes from it.
So apologies for probably the worst written post in blog history (I think I wrote this more for myself than anything else) but I hope this helps at least some of you!
Love, Amy xxx
ps. I hope you are all as excited as I am about creating an e-book to help you all, that's all I want to do, help others :)
