For the mamas…

❌   Reality ❌
In LOVE with this reality check from @sandrauhrdin 🙌

I have so many new mamas approach me post pregnancy, ready to immediately get their bodies back.

But here’s the thing, motherhood and pregnancy is a beautiful thing and YOU DO NOT NEED TO RUSH. Social media is plastered with before and after transformations of new moms but every body is different, so please stop comparing.

Slow down. Enjoy the time with your little one. Take steps to be healthy every day.

Your body will recover.
You will get back in shape.
It’s NORMAL to feel uncomfortable in your skin for a bit.

Give it time, and love, and enjoy. You don’t have to be perfect. No one is.
Keep going mamas you’re doing great. 💕mama

You are Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

One of my biggest struggles… my constant attempt to please everyone else.
The thought of someone disliking me used to send me into straight up panic, and I was constantly changing myself to make everyone else happy.
.
➡️ NEWSFLASH ⬅️
.
No matter what you do you CANNOT control other people’s opinions of you. You are not everyone’s cup of tea.
.
The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who love you: they are your people.
.
As soon as I stopped wasting my time trying to CONVINCE people to like me, I was able to spend all of time appreciating, loving, and enjoying the ones who do. Never ever feel like you need to PLEASE everyone. Make yourself happy. Make yourself proud. Let the rest go.

Don’t Let Social Media Fool You

Don’t let social media fool you.
There are people with only 10 likes who have plenty of friends, and people with 100+ likes that are incredibly lonely.

There are couples that appear extremely happy yet are in dysfunctional relationships.

There are girls who overexpose their bodies yet feel the most insecure.

Things aren’t what they always appear to be.
Just remember appearances are just that, appearances.
