The Old You Is Dead
Hey there! I am writing this article to admit that I have hit rock bottom, but that excites me. The journey forward, I know, will be an upward swim now. One of the songs I hear when I am feeling low is “Look what you made me do” by Taylor Swift.
I’m sorry. But the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, ’cause she’s dead!
That line really motivates me. You are the hero of your life. If the movie is getting boring, you know the hero needs an upgrade.
No human is perfect. We all have our insecurities, but we also have a whole lot of things that make us feel like a badass. We tend to ignore our own needs and keep putting it off. STOP!❌ Many people are givers and forget to take care of themselves. Self love and care is VERY important, work on yourself starting now. Always wanted to go to Bali? Start setting that as your goal. Save up for it so that you know by the end of the year, you're going to rock Bali!
Wanted a pet? I LOVED animals but I was always terrified by the fear of losing a pet. However, with the help of my therapist and near and dear ones, I finally got myself a kitten 😻.
There is a reason pets are used as part of therapy; It teaches responsibility, how to interact in a group using non-violent methods to solve problems and of course, the unconditional love of a pet is something everyone deserves to feel.
For me, many of the obsessive and negative thoughts have reduced considerably after adopting my kitten Mjölnir. She is such a cute and fluffy ball of joy running around doing funny things. Trust me, its even proven by science, a pet will surely make you a better version of yourself.
You need to look great to feel great. Invest in some stylish clothes 👔👗, get a new haircut, color your hair 💇🏼♀️, get new spectacles 🕶, YOU DO YOU! ❤ Take a step such that you feel new. You could perhaps try a whole new field as your career. Sit down, think what you are not satisfied with and change it! I had very low self esteem so I got a hair makeover, and trust me it helps. Whenever I dress up, I believe that I am going to bump into my worst enemy that day. Whenever you come across an old enemy/frenemy, you need to look fabulous! The feeling is inexplainable. Stop lazing around with regards to your wardrobe.
Dress sharp always. There is a saying that your hair is your crown. Investing and taking care of your hair maybe difficult, but having great hair always boosts anyone’s confidence.
You Are Royalty! You’re special and nobody can tell you otherwise. Love yourself, invest in yourself. Be a giver for yourself once. Set a goal, click a picture of yourself. That is the old you. You need to be refreshed. Be strong minded, embrace yourself. Kill the old you and welcome in the brand new you! You can do it!
