Be Happy Be You!

“Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” ~Louise L. Hay

We could be so happy if we learn not to attach our happiness to anything else in the world! But I know that is not always possible. “Being happy is always a choice.” And for a woman, “true” happiness can be best achieved when she is happy and confident. When she is ready to embrace her not-so-perfect-self! When she can confidently look in the mirror and say, “I am beautiful. I am perfect just the way I am!”

How to be happy, how to be comfortable in your skin

The real secret to loving our ourselves is: connecting with your true loving self! We can be really happy when we stop judging ourselves and accept the real woman beneath those layers of borrowed fashion, style and make-up!

How to be happy, how to be comfortable in your skin

We often become the victims of negative self-talk and then start comparing ourselves to those who we think are “perfect”. Sometimes we think we are worthless and what not; but have you ever tried thinking this way: “I am courageous, loving, pretty, open-hearted, and creative?” Feel good about yourself and try to discover your strengths, and the reasons that make you worthy than others. Changing your perception will give you the freedom and the courage to look inside yourself and realize what you need, to feel good.

Take time to learn about yourself; what makes you feel happy and comfortable! Along the way you might find that things change and your negative attitude takes over again. And that’s okay, because you are learning to embrace yourself with imperfections. And when it happens just be more patient and mindful in accepting the person you are becoming. When you catch yourself thinking negative, change it to a more positive way. Be nice to yourself!

  2. Epsi, that’s truly reaffirming and powerful set of thoughts. Everyone of us going behind perfectionism needs to step back and think about these facts. Way to go gal !

  3. I seriously couldn’t agree more with this post! Being happy is such an important aspect in our lives and sometimes we forget about it and just beat ourselves us when failures arise. Over the years, I’ve come to really love myself and I have my son to thank for that because he made me realize, appreciate and love the little things even more when he came into my world. Sometimes, you just have to stay true to yourself and feel content and everything else will follow suit.

  12. Beautiful post. It is easy to be drowned in negative emotions and feelings, no matter how positive one is otherwise. It is important to snap out of those and substitute them with positive energy. Stay happy, keep blogging! – Purva (www.blueskydreamers.com)

  13. Thank you for this cheerful post and pictures.. such a lovely reminder to all women young and old… to stop bashing ourselves up and to be a little more gentle with our hearts… Really needed to read this. I think I spent most of yesterday in self pity and self bashing. So not healthy. And worse when you are a mom and have people depending on your for everything. And I just came uopn this post today..
