The key to happiness is different for everyone – some of us are still searching whereas others have already found what they are looking for! But, no matter, we can never have too much happiness…..
If you want a happy life – you have to create it!
I hope that 2019 is the year you realize if you want a beautiful life, you are responsible for creating it. Don’t wait for life to come to you – go find it!
If you want to feel at ease with yourself, you can no longer take a passive role in the details of your life. You have to consciously choose everything from your morning makeup to your linens at night. And it is really all about the choices you make – you and only you can choose to be happy!
You need to learn to feel grateful for the simplest things, like your morning coffee and sunlight streaming through the side of the window while you make it.
I hope this is the year you realize that how you show up to the world becomes who you are in the world.
Make choices that are right for you
Choose makeup that makes you feel most like yourself, and make those products part of your routine. And most importantly make self-love an essential part of your week, every week and self-love a non-negotiable practice in your life (every day).
What on Earth Is Self Love?
Self-love is open and honest.
It’s the ultimate commitment; to get to know and accept yourself as you are. To fully experience life as it happens to you. To continually seek ways to physically, psychologically, and spiritually grow from these experiences.
True self-love is giving yourself unconditional respect, appreciation, and evaluation of being great. It’s reminding yourself that you deserve to have all your personal needs met while considering yourself as worthy, valuable, and deserving of happiness.
Allow yourself to love the things you love, even if they’re small but they are right for you. Read books you like, and don’t feel like you have to finish the ones you don’t. Remember there is music for every mood, have candles for every season, know that money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy the tools that help you get there.
Show up in your life – take responsibility!
You and only YOU are the driver of your life and really the time is NOW! It is time to own your life, to show up as you want to be seen….and say Hi My Name Is Gael this is my life! You need to see all the things you have rather than the things you don’t have (we will go there in Part 2) see the joy in your life rather than the sadness. And even when you feel defeated, stand strong, breathe in and let it go. Let the Universe know that you are strong and you will survive!
Choose to create a Beautiful Life
At the end of the day, what you put on you should be a reflection of what’s going on within you. A beautiful life is something you create as well as something you must choose to see. How do you see yourself? What are your dreams? What makes you happy? Ask for help and most importantly trust yourself more than anyone else.
This quote is very famous from Charlie Chaplin and resonated with me: As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it FULFILLMENT. Charlie Chaplin
Why is it Important to Love Yourself
You simply cannot take care of others until you take care of yourself first. Remember YOU are the driver – the most important person in your life – the foundation which needs to be taken care of as a priority. Self-love is, therefore, your fuel and foundation. If it’s not there, your entire life will be unstable and uncertain. But if you truly love yourself, life moves forward with ease and you know that no matter what everything will be okay – because you have yourself!
I am going to end this blog post (I have parts 2 and 3 coming soon) but I want to ask you one question: What did you do for YOU today?
Have a wonderful week
