Happy Thursday! The weekend is so temptingly close, do you have any fun plans? Today we’re talking about beats – finding your own beat that is. I often get caught up in conversations with close friends talking about how different things are – even from just 10 years ago – and the powerful influence of the multitude of social media platforms out there nowadays. With all the sways and influence out there, it’s easy to get lost in overpowering voices of be this or wear that or no, you should really look like this.
Earlier this week we talked about cutting out the friends who no longer belong in your life. Didn’t catch that one? Read it here. What we didn’t talk about is keeping around the friends who lift you up, who inspire you, support you, and love you for exactly who you are. One of the most powerful things said to me by a very dear friend still rings in my ears: I love you because you do you – you walk with an invisible tiara and don’t give a crap what people think.
The blunt honesty of that comment shocked me, I wasn’t expecting it nor had I ever really reflected on anything like that before. But the more I sat and really thought about it, the more I thought – you’re so right. Feeling like that and finding that attitude definitely wasn’t easy, especially when the entire world seems keen on picking people apart rather than embracing them for who they are. But once I found my beat, I ran with it! Don’t like my purple hair? That’s too bad – I freaking love it! Have an issue with how I live my life? Well it’s a good thing we don’t live together then!
Some people might argue bloggers are just another platform trying to change people but on the contrary – most bloggers do an insanely amazing job getting people to become more comfortable in their own skin or finding out how to. I LOVE helping people bring out their best qualities and discover how to shine! Feeling like the best versions of ourselves is an incredible feeling and leads to happier days and all around better people. So forget what the world expects of you and be the happiest version of yourself – turn up the music and dance it out.
Speaking of music… did you see these headphones? My friends at Sudio Sweden have kindly gifted me these beautiful headphones AND a 15% off code for anyone interested in their products.
