Happy Thursday! Eve here, filling in this week for our resident ‘Thoughtful Thursday” blogger, KaringVibes. I have been thinking a lot about what I would like to share with you all today, but instead of offering a tip, or a thought, I wanted to actually take my time to applaud each of you and remind you all to pat yourselves on the back.
We are complimented by others frequently. However, we forget to compliment ourselves, even though, we tend to be our harshest critics. So, I’m here to quote a little Justin Bieber and remind you to love yourself.
More often than not, we get wrapped in the hustle and bustle of life.
Owning and running a business, staying on top of orders, having and supporting a family, keeping up with homework, constantly learning, exercising, eating, cleaning… The list goes on, and this doesn’t even take creativity spurts into account, which are incredible but also time-consuming. Well, I’m here to tell and remind you to take a break, a deep breath, and pat yourself on the back.
You’re doing an amazing job. You are doing your best, so know that it is enough. And on days when you could do more, don’t fret. Enjoy the interruption; we all know it won’t last. Read a book, take a walk, close your eyes, kiss your kids, or go out with friends. Do not forget to do something out of the ordinary of your everyday routine.
Creativity can fade, but happiness and spontaneity encourage inspiration. We need to remember to not only take the time to be creative, and rekindle our inspiration flames, but throughout it all, please remember that we are all not only doing what we love, but we are all successfully pursuing careers in fields we love. Because of that alone, every day, we deserve compliments.
So, right now, look at yourself in a mirror, and compliment yourself.
You deserve it!
