Yesterday I posted a nice quote on my Instagram page (@leahhhh__) it said “Treat yourself. Don’t beat yourself.” When I made that quote I didn’t really elaborate on its meaning right then. I mean, I knew what I meant I just didn’t sit down and actually ponder on it for a while. Well, this morning I did my usual, I woke up got myself and my son dressed so I could take him to his bus stop, and as I we were sitting waiting for the bus I started to feel really sad. I began to beat myself up on how I didn’t look a certain way, dress a certain way, how much of a parent I was and other things. I got into a kind of depressed mode as we sat there. I was telling my fiancé about it and he was telling me to stop. He told me I was hurting myself because of the negative and discouraging things I was saying/thinking to myself. I realized he was right. I was literally driving myself crazy with my own thoughts. Then my quote from yesterday popped in my head. I now fully understand that I must not beat myself but in fact treat myself. My fiancé told me I looked fine, I’m the greatest parent ever, and things would be okay and work out just fine. I shouldn’t beat myself up over things that are vaguely an imaginative opinion I have on myself. I am definitely going to treat myself to some encouraging self talk and possibly makeup from BH Cosmetics 🙂 (My favorite place for makeup). So today I tell you all to stop beating yourself. Things are not always how they appear, they actually are better than you think. Treat yourself, don’t beat yourself ladies. I hope everyone have a positive and blessed day! Always remember this scripture (my personal favorite) God is within her she will not fail Psalms 46:5.
