      Be Your Own Hero and Biggest Cheerleader


      Be Your Own Hero and Biggest Cheerleader

      If you believe in Girl Power, then you may already believe in in being your own biggest cheerleader and hero. To be a confident , positive, and driven woman you must be your BIGGEST hero and cheerleader. YOU have to believe in yourself, and YOU have to cheer yourself on ! 

      In anything you do , I hope that you understand yourself. Know your worth, know your goals, know your dreams, and know your purpose in achieving whatever it is that you wish to do!

      As women, we need to look for the most support and drive from within ourselves. Learn to not depend on others for validation or approval. Always empower yourself  ! In life , there are tons of challenging situations and difficult roads that you may encounter. Always be your own cheerleader that is consistently encouraging.

      #1. Know Yourself and Your Worth

      Know who you are, know your values, your goals, where your heart and mind is, and take your time figuring it all out. People are always changing, always learning, and always finding wisdom. Be flexible, and know that if you stay true to yourself , what is for you will become revealed. Be aware of yourself and your purpose in doing something. Writing in a journal may help, making lists, or creating a visual picture can help you in writing about who you are, and your goals in life. Do whatever works best for you.

      #2. Reminders

      Having positive reminders everyday may be a simple step you can take in staying motivated, and feeling cheered on. You can put sticky notes all over your room with positive quotes or sayings. You can set reminders on your phone with positive messages to yourself. A list by your bed could also be a great way to always remind yourself of what is important to you. For example, you can write a list of your long term goals to help you remember why you're working 2 jobs, going to school , and taking out loans. You can read the list every night to make sure you are serving your purpose, and to know that you are working towards something beyond the temporary situation. Reminders are helpful and powerful in going about your day !

      #3. Visuals

      Make a poster, a collage,  or sketch about all the things your passionate about, your goals, your desires, and what you daydream about for you and your life. Place your poster, collage, or sketch in a special spot where you can see it everyday. You can cut out pictures or words from magazines, books, ads, or whatever you want. You can always make a board on Pinterest also, and find tons of photos and quotes. An inspirational photo as your screensaver on your phone or computer is a great way to incorporate a positive reminder to look at in your day. Think about how many times you look at your phone in the day, and then how many times you'd see the inspirational photo.Find any reminder that works for you to always keep you inspired , motivated, driven, and supported. 

      #4. Journal

      Having a journal means having a special space where you can go and let out all of your thoughts, emotions, feelings, ideas, hopes, and dreams. It is very healthy and therapeutic to have a journal to let out all the things that are going on in your mind and heart. A journal is a special place for you and only you, so let it all out. Bottling up everything inside can cause you to feel down or stressed, so letting everything out is also healthy for you. You can even use your phone (the note section) as a journal, and always have it with you on the go!

      #5. Celebrate yourself

      Always celebrate yourself ! Try to do things ,big or small, to celebrate yourself. Even if you only have 10-20 minutes a day, do it. Think or say  positive words about the great things you did in the day. Take yourself out to breakfast, lunch, or dinner ! Consistently think of reasons to be happy, thankful, or excited about your day or week even if it is something small. Always always always find reasons to celebrate things about yourself and your life. Being thankful, excited, and happy within yourself is so important and huge in being your biggest hero and cheerleader. You have to see the brilliance in yourself each day.Positive words and thoughts go a long way. When you feel positive, you do positive things and positivity comes back to you.

      How to Fall In love with Yourself


      How to Fall in Love with Yourself

      It is so important to fully love, accept, and embrace yourself. When you do, you live an entire new life. You will see life differently, have a better mindset, and be more at peace with yourself.

      #1. Let go of what gives FAKE confidence

      Let go of excessive hair extensions, step away from loads of make-up, let go of applied nails, and anything else you may use to give you a fake sense of confidence. Go at least a week without all of these things. Hair extensions, make-up, and acrylic nails are all things that can be enjoyable. But, learn to let go of loads of this for a week, or more if can. Do you feel really good and confident when you have these things on but horrible when you do not have these things on? Take time to focus on what you already have. Take care of your own hair and style it. Apply make-up that enhances what you have, so that when you take it off you still look like the same person! Try not to use make-up to cover up, but use make-up to bring more of what you already have out. Do your own natural nails, have a pamper day! If you want super long nails, take vitamins and take care of your nails!

      Many young women make themselves feel horrible, because of their own actions. They use excessive hair extensions, make-up, and nails to APPLY a “confidence”. Confidence has to come from within, confidence is not applied.

      #2. Love who you are on the inside

      Write down and think about all the things that you love about who you are on the inside. Think about all the qualities and characteristics that are amazing in you!

      #3. Love who you are on the outside

      Look at yourself in the mirror, and really admire your natural self. Do not talk negatively about yourself, stop wishing to look like another person, do not believe that you have to look at certain way. Celebrate what you have! If there is something about yourself that you really are struggling with, make a plan to improve it so that you can improve how you feel about your physical appearance.  For example, if you want clear skin make a plan to drink more water or see a dermatologist!

      #4. Forgive

      Decide to forgive yourself for all the things you pick at constantly. Instead of picking at things, choose to praise yourself. So what if you did this or that, remember all the awesome things about who you are.

      #5. Spend Time Alone

      Love the time you have to yourself. Enjoy your hobby, find your passion, take a hot bubble bath, read a book, write in your journal, or take a walk. It is amazing how time alone can really provide you an opportunity to hear yourself think, and let yourself reflect.

      #6. Take Action

      Decide to take action about control you have over your life. Love yourself enough to clear your life of negativity. Get rid of negative people, get rid of people that don’t love you or support you, get rid of jobs you hate, get rid of whatever hurts you or makes you feel bad. When you really love yourself, you will not allow anyone or anything negative to be in your life.

      #7. Self-Care

      Prioritize time for self-care. Always do things to make yourself feel great. You always want to feel your best. Below are examples:

      ·      Take a hot shower
      ·      Exercise
      ·      Paint your nails
      ·      Take naps
      ·      Plan a good breakfast
      ·      Drink lots of water
      ·      Take vitamins

      #8. Set the Example


      If you do not love and respect yourself, then who will? If you want to be treated a certain way, you must treat yourself a certain way first (and always). Conduct yourself in a positive manner. Show positivity, and positivity will come back to you.
