Wear your invisible crown everyday. You are valuable and have something to offer the world. Because nobody else is like you. That makes you royalty enough in my book. So when you walk out the house today, hold your head up high and lead with your heart...that's the most important part of you.
I've watched Shrek the musical twice now and the film too many times that I can count! Obviously, a massive reason I enjoy the story is because it is entertaining, funny and with some awesome music to boot (I'm a believer anyone?!). However, I also find the moral of the story incredibly uplifting and I think … Continue reading The wisdom of Shrek…
Happy Friday! Let's aim today to not give a damn about what people think because we already know how great we are, and why rely on others to validate that?
YOU are enough. You are unique and special - and you should be insanely happy to be you. The most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself. Fall in love with yourself and vow to take care of you and be the best you can...
People with lower self-esteem can often crave the attention of others, and on the path to obtaining it, unfortunately it can result in loss of self-respect, and often lower self-esteem. A woman who flaunts herself provocatively and wears little clothing just to attract a man, for example. We all know that girl will certainly get attention, but … Continue reading R.E.S.P.E.C.T
I love this quote from Emma Stone - I think the likes of her and some other female celebrities are amazing because they really focus on the idea that it is inner beauty that defines us, not what is on the outside. Another excellent one is Jennifer Lawrence calling out her interviewer on questions about her weight … Continue reading Boost of the day #15
Another one that's so easy to fall victim to, many of us have such high standards of ourselves that we expect constant perfection. Perfect hair, perfect skin, perfect body, perfect performance at work...I'm sure we can all relate to one of these, sometimes all of them! Imagine if you actually met someone who had the … Continue reading Boost of the day #12
Sneaking in a boost whilst I'm at work... It does not matter how small a step you make today, whether that's smiling at yourself in a mirror or fitting in a workout, but take a movement towards loving yourself today 🙂 My step will be to not compare myself to others when I am out and about … Continue reading Boost of the day #7
Morning from sunny England (finally!),
During my daily read of blogs on self-esteem, I came across one which I completely related to so I thought I should share. I have been guilty of putting men I date on a pedestal and I have slowly realised that this will never lead to a healthy relationship, and indeed will always lead to being hurt.
So it’s time to swear off dating until you really love and value yourself. Focus on yourself and your self-worth for a while…then you’ll be sharing that pedestal 😊
Do you sometimes notice that when you are with the man or woman you feel romantically and sexually about you put them on a pedestal?
You may think at first you are doing this because of how special they are to you. You may think you admire another person or “look up” to them. This is just not the case when we choose to place someone on a pedestal. In this case, by placing another person above us, we are literally and automatically putting ourselves below them in a much lower position with much less power. Not only is this a very vulnerable position, but also a very unhealthy one. If we want to find and seek healthy relationships we must not knowingly put others above us leaving us feeling worthless and not good enough to be valued and wanted.
What is wrong with us when we do this?

An article on Cosmopolitan has captured my attention: Are selfies bad for our self-esteem? The writer answers the question with a resounding yes and I'm inclined to agree. I am guilty of taking selfies, often on a daily basis, to check how I look. Sometimes I look at my selfie and think, "hey I'm actually … Continue reading Selfie-esteem: good or bad?
