18 is just a number, and age is just a state of mind

It is never too late to be the person you want to be. You still have your entire future ahead of you. You have choices to make or unmake -dreams to nurture and actions to  take. Is there something you’re longing to accomplish but haven’t even tried yet?

We women are very resilient. We have withered all the tests of time, generations after generations, civilizations after civilizations. We have a creative mind, a soft heart, and a beautiful soul. Don’t let age or any other mental block not let you meet the sweet 18 year old you once were.

You are still the same. You just have to train your eyes to see yourself in that light. Don’t let the spunky 18 year old die, keep her alive in your heart.

Please put yourself first, once you start loving yourself, the life will love you back. I made an interesting observation a few days back while flying. During instructions, the flight attendant said- “Please help yourself with the oxygen mask before helping others”. This is true to us in all walks of life. Please help yourself, create a safety net for yourself, develop a hobby, and reignite a passion. Love yourself, every morning, get dressed as if it’s the most important day of your life, and carry that feeling the whole day.

You Are As Beautiful As You Think You Are

Are you beautiful? Are you an average looking woman or do you consider yourself ugly? ‘Beautiful’ is a beautiful word and ‘ugly’ is an ugly word but they both find place in our world and in our lives. But ask yourself truthfully, can you truly have any unanimity on what is beautiful and what is ugly?

Almost every woman on planet earth is conscious about her physical appearance. Her self esteem or confidence, her approach to life, the degree of sadness or happiness, whether she is open or closed, how comfortable she is in social and professional circles, what she aspires to become and what she expects from others; everything about her and her life is deeply influenced by her own perception of herself. That perception may be accurate or may be outright wrong but it has to be positive. Thinking positive is the secret to feeling good about yourself. Something as simple as thinking that you are beautiful can change your life. It will change the way you think, how you see the world and how you think the world sees you.
