Love Yourself

When was the last time you actually heard your name? I know that’s a weird question but bear with me…

People say my name every day but I think I’ve forgotten to hear it. See, when someone says your name: it’s an expression of how unique and awesome you are. But I guess we keep forgetting that, we tend to try so hard to blend in that we totally forget to be ourselves and stand out. So I’ve been having this relatively long conversation with my 18day old cousin about how special she is to me and how her name is more than just a word. This single word represents all the parts of you, every little bit that you haven’t even discovered yet. So who gives you the right not to feel proud every time it is used?

It’s sort of funny how we take these little things for granted, we as a society have gotten so use to diminishing ourselves or even taking it to the next level by making everyone else feel bad about themselves in order to make us feel better about ourselves too. Wouldn’t it be a lot simpler if we just focused on liking ourselves instead? Just go ahead and look at yourself in the mirror and say: “I like you! You are awesome and you deserve to have all of your dreams come true!” That simple…

And once you’ve mastered that little art, how about sharing it with everyone else by smiling at them. That is what a smile is about isn’t it? About showing how happy and confident you are and telling the person you’re smiling at that they are amazing and bring out that confidence. Next time someone smiles at you, remember that they’re sharing their awesomeness with you and that by smiling back, you’re acknowledging theirs.

We can make being nice to each other really complicated so that we’ll have an excuse for failing but ultimately it really does come down to this: you are awesome and someone using your name is proof of that! Simply smiling at someone is like giving them a million compliments!

Shortest post ever,
