Whew! This month started off with a bang. So much has happened, some good and some bad. I turned 31 years old last week … cheers to me! Some people say that there is no difference between 30 and 31, but I can definitely feel myself changing as I get older.
I find myself having more patience and taking more time to think before making a decision. I also find myself caring less about things that I once let bother me.
But now that I am 31, I made a vow to myself to never let anyone tell me what I am NOT and to stop talking negatively about myself. I think self-love is one of the most important aspects of living a truly happy life. If you love yourself, then nothing that anyone says or does will affect the way you feel.
For year, I allowed others to diminish my confidence in myself. To the point where I stopped trusting myself, because the decisions that I made caused me so much hurt and pain. So with this new year that God has given me, I have vowed to trust and love myself more.
And I channeled this energy through a photo shoot that I did right before my birthday. I don’t care how I look, this is me being me and feeling great doing it.
It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.
