When we are born and throughout our adolescent we are showered with abundance of love , we are nurtured , cherished , protected , we are loved , oh we are loved so much . And in time we also learn how to give back that love – to our friends , to our families , to the people around us , husbands , lovers . We give out abundance of love . In between all this life gives us a life changing hint of something extraordinary . Life gives us a hint of something that every individual should cherish through all the traumas , heartbreaks , failures , successes , set backs . Life gives – YOU . Some capture that gift called YOU and they forever hold it tight , but there are some who fail to notice it , and it’s importance .
How happy do we feel when someone who matters so much to us says , “I love you.” How happy do we feel when someone lifts us up during all our failures, someone who appreciates and admires us even during our worst times ?? Someone who appreciates our skin , someone who appreciates our face , looks , our weight . But is this all that we need ?? Is that it ?? The love that comes from others , is that all we need ?? The love that comes from your husband or your wife , from your parents – is that all you need ??? Yes . But No . There is something common among all the legends who have achieved greatness . Be it a common over-weight girl who later became a celebrity , be it handicapped guy changing the world of people like him and giving them a new meaning to their lives , be it a woman who didn’t give a fuck about how she looked or what others said about her appearance , but instead went on to make a difference in this world – they all definitely have one thing in common – Self Love . Self respect . Self admiration . They all loved themselves .
One of the greatest gifts I’ve given myself is self acceptance . Self Love . And I didn’t find this art easily . It happened only after years of ignorance ,after years of wanting others to love me and treat me right , and finally left with nothing but an empty Me. But ever sine I’ve learned how important i am to me , I haven’t been noticing anything else but love . Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this post , for it might shoot a light inside your mind and heart .
- TO BE AND FEEL EXTRAORDINARY : JUST LOVE YOURSELF
I see love as one of the most purest forms of Art . And nothing simple or great can be shared with extreme joy , unless we first learn to smile and laugh about it . This thought applies to Love also . You gotta love yourself before you could share it with others . You gotta love yourself before you could get back that love . Love every bits and pieces of you ; your good , your bad , your insecurities , your guts , you beauty , your imperfections , and show the world what others think or say doesn’t really matter because , there is someone who loves you just the way are – YOU . The ability to love someone or something is so precious , it is so addictive , that at time we forget we need to give ourselves more of that love to enrich our presence in this world . Celebrate your presence in this world , be what you want to be , do what you feel , and love yourself with a sense of pride , cause you are awesome .
- RESPECT YOUR THOUGHTS , RESPECT YOUR DREAMS
Someone once said something like , we are born many times in this world – once when your mother gives birth to you , once when you fall in love , and once when you start believing in your dreams . I would go on disagreeing with so many things , but never on this thought . All great people were just someone ordinary up until at one point when they decided to move towards what it really takes to be extraordinary . Every dream , every idea , every thought was once noted as something stupid and ridiculous . And no great Men and Women allowed these words to stop them . Instead they just had their eye on what they believe in with a simple thought in their mind – Respect your dreams . Every human born has gotta have their own version of greatness . And eventually that greatness brings in so many dreams and ideas into your life . And as a human it is your inevitable duty to give life to those dreams . Believe in your dreams , no matter what it is . In time you might reach that dream or you might not . But one thing I am definitely sure of is that , it will definitely change you as a person immensely . Chase your drams no matter what , every minute , every second of your life till you could grab hold of it’s legs . Live your dreams and believe in your version of greatness .
- TREAT YOURSELF RIGHT AND ONLY THEN DEMAND OTHERS TO TREAT YOU WELL .
Treat yourself with compassion , with extraordinary love , with tender , with passion , vigor and boldness . Treat yourself like the way you expect others to treat you . Set standards for yourself , raise your bars , give your life a bigger perspective . Being treated well by others begins from you treating yourself right . Shower yourself with all the good and great as you wish to give yourself and don’t ever let someone tell you that you don’t deserve something great . Live your life like you wish to live , and put yourself in a position where when others look at you they go , WWWWWOOOOOOWWWWW. Give yourself everything that would make you feel and become great . Fall in love with your imperfections , because all that sums up to You . Show your greatness in your walk , in your smile , in your self acceptance , in you work , in what you love . Stand up for yourself when needed . Before anybody could protect you , protect yourself . That is what makes a woman . That is what makes a man .
- FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR SKIN AND BODY .
Please , please , please don’t you dare hate your skin , your weight , your looks , your appearance . Because once you start hating them , it will probably haunt you for the rest of your life . Believe that you are beautiful just the way you are . Your looks really doesn’t matter . It really doesn’t . People who have achieved great heights didn’t give a shit about what they look like . For them all that mattered was their thoughts . All that mattered was their vision . All that mattered was their love sfor something big , and they were not afraid to get themselves close to greatness . Accept how your skin looks , accept your crooked nose , accept your jiggling thighs . Because noce again , all this sums up to something precious = YOU . And if there are ways to protect what this Universe has blessed you with , protect them , treat them with compassion .
When your looks > whats inside your head = You are a fucked up shit .
When whats inside your head > your looks = You’re the Boss .
- PUT YOURSELF IN A POSITION AND DON’T EVER COME DOWN FOR ANYTHING OR ANYBODY .
Up there ! Put yourself up there and don’t ever let anybody bring you down for anything . Always picture yourself being part of something great and extraordinary . Be part of something great and extraordinary . Be part of a great place , part of a great work , be one among the great people , be one among the few souls who has seen happiness and sadness to the extent and yet, still standing so bold and graciously . Pick the work your love and become great at it . Get your hands on everything , fall in love with as many things as possible , and never let go of what makes you happy . Happiness is everywhere , in everything that you do . But not many notice it . You , should notice it .
- THE MORE BEAUTY YOU SEE IN OTHERS , THE MORE BEAUTY YOU CAN SEE IN YOU .
Nobody is born being a bad person . I am very much sure every human born will have something or the other that is extremely beautiful in them . Nobody is born with a bad heart . Nobody is born with bad intentions . So where does all this hatred come from ?? I don’t know . Probably as they grow up some people don’t notice the beauty in them . Some people don’t realize the beauty they can bring in to this world and in other people’s lives . And these people need help . They need help from their fellow human beings . They need someone to tap them on their shoulders and tell them that they are beautiful . I feel , instead of killing each other in the name of war , our world would be such a beautiful place if we decide to help one another . Notice the beauty in others . Treat everyone equally . Treat them with respect , treat them with compassion . And never ignore anybody who is badly in need of some love . Smile at others , and your soul smiles back at you .
- GIVE YOURSELF EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED . AND …. LOVE .
Things will eventually come to you only when you decide to take the initiative to go get them . So get them . Get them all that you need. Get yourself a damn good education , get yourself into an amazing job . Discover your page of happiness and stick with it . Believe in yourself , in your guts and instincts . Keep everything that makes you complete and happy close to you – be it music , people , nature , love , books , work , knowledge . Let people look up to , be an inspiration to someone . Stand up as a hero . Fight for love . Fight for what you need . You deserve everything great as much as anybody else deserves it . Never feel small . Because YOU are awesome . Be awesome , and …. LOVE.
