Taking care of yourself and allotting a few hours a week for self-care has a direct correlation with your confidence. Everybody has those times where your hair has a mind of its own. You spill coffee on your shirt before 10 am, and you might have forgotten to put on deodorant. This may sound like the beginning of a disastrous day, but if you start taking advantage of the following recommendations, you are sure to be looking your best, even when you feel your worst.
Mid-20s. It's a weird time, isn't it?
THERE ARE ONLY 2 THINGS YOU CAN REALLY CONTROL, AND THAT’S ATTITUDE AND EFFORT. HOW YOU APPLY BOTH, PRODUCTIVELY, WILL DETERMINE THE SUCCESS, THE QUALITY AND THE QUANTITY OF THE IDEAS YOU COME UP TO SOLUTIONS PROBLEMS.
Yes, my body is not what it used to be—and that's okay.
I reached a point in my life where I felt as though I needed to meet people who were "further along" than I was in order for me to keep growing or evolving as a person. In truth, I would never encounter or experience growth the way I truly wanted with a mindset that led me to stay within my comfort zone, to continuously search outside of myself by playing it safe and keeping a closed mind to the opportunities, experiences or relationships that were right there in front of me. I was inevitably stuck within my own ways and limitations which in turn was limiting my growth. The longer I searched for this encounter or experience, the more I felt stuck, frustrated and disappointed and eventually became content with the idea of never finding those opportunities or meeting those people.

All of us have heard the old adage, “You can’t love someone else until you love yourself.” Yet, I personally know so many people who don’t even care about themselves, aren’t able to treat themselves with a healthy regard and respect, or are always looking for someone else to fill the holes inside of them. If there is one thing I can tell you now, I will shout it from the fucking rooftops:
I am a very empathetic person. I really feel for other's pain when they are going through something, and am also someone who will forgive people for when they do me wrong pretty easily. I suppose because I have not had the easiest life that I know none of us are perfect. Regardless, I treat people well, because in this world we should just treat everyone with kindness because we have no idea what anyone is going through. When it comes to myself though I really don't do the best job as being kind to myself.
