Loving Yourself | Cambridge OOTD

I’ve never been particularly confident in myself, but because of blogging I’ve had to look at myself more than ever. I’m usually quite happy not having to look at myself all day, apart from doing my makeup – that would be a challenge without a mirror. Starting a blog has definitely made me more comfortable in my appearance, there are only so many unflattering photos of yourself that you can cringe at (I just laugh now).

Here are 5 tips that might make you love yourself a little bit more, and help you not take yourself or life too seriously.

  1. Realise that nobody is perfect, everyone has flaws – stop critiquing yourself for yours.
  2. Always focus on the positives, if you think that you have nice legs – then show them off!
  3. Have a laugh, everything is so much better when you’re having fun – you’ll love yourself for it.
  4. Be patient, spots doesn’t clear up overnight and you can’t lose 10kg in a day. It isn’t the end of the world – being patient and seeing progress is something that I can’t recommend enough.
  5. Do more of what makes you happy, by taking care of yourself first it’ll improve your self esteem massively.

    I have been playing with numbers lately in no particular way.

    Look for 5 beautiful things while hiking
    Think of ten good things that happened during the day Etc

    It seems that it might be useful to randomly roll a multi sided dice and come up with a random number each day and that is my number goal.

    One for beauty in nature.
    One for things I am grateful for.
    Your post reminds me I need to recognize the beauty in myself as well.
    Maybe also expand that to the things I did well that day, recognizing things that I am good at and more….

    Thanks for the perspective.

    Your thoughts are beautiful and that shines through your photos as well!
