Speak to Yourself Nicely

Being brought up in the Western world in a catholic environment I was taught to always care about others more than myself, which stops you speaking to yourself nicely.

Now I am an adult and I have experienced and seen the damage this ethos has done to me and brought to my generation and generations above me. Startlingly though even though the catholic system is no longer the dominant sought after education for children in my local area the same message is the one that is being taught to our children. The repercussions of this are drastic as it means that no matter what our intuition tells us is right for us we ignore it. We ignore it in favor of other people’s opinions and actively seek out approval for our thoughts and actions. Is it any wonder that we have greater problems than ever with mental health, how many mental disorders are real! I think the lack of support we are taught to give ourselves is one of the causal effects of new mental illness which we find a chemical fix for in the way of anti-depressants, therapy and counseling to name a few of which the government allow doctors to prescribe.

I’m not arguing that there is no such thing as mental illness, I am in no way qualified or educated to speak as such. I’m merely suggesting a rational idea led by nothing more than the ability to trust my intuition (which is wonderful gift gifted to us from nature) and the intuitively led self-education I have been programming myself with as I grow and develop though life.


So my gift to you today is to go look in a mirror and say ‘I am amazing, I have everything I need to thrive’ do this regularly throughout the day, do it regularly throughout every day and see what happens to the way you think about yourself, will you stop looking for approval? Will other people’s opinions matter? Do you really need to be dependent on someone else to realise your own strength? Is this what it means to have Faith? You were never conceived to fit in a box, You were conceived to create and add value to the species by just being who we You are?

I am a lover of all things involving life and living. After being under a dark cloud of uninspired thinking I fell to the bottom of the world (my world) and saw what I wanted to achieve with my life. My goal in life is to be able to everyday teach my children the art of being happy because the alternative is unbearable. I am doing this by devoting my life to the things I want to achieve which keeps my happy centred on my well-being and personal growth and teaching my children how to do the same. I am a lover of fashion, culture, psychology and holistic living. I practise all very day, Fashion with my Jewellery business in which I make luxury, bohemian inspired hippie chic jewellery using various Semi-precious stones, Glass beads, Swarovski, Leather and Silver. I am newly qualified fitness professional a qualification I also gained September 2015 at the same time I set up my Etsy shop, I work in my local gym. My concentration of development is on my Jewellery crafting, Yoga and inspired holistic living and long term I plan to move from the UK. Where that is I don't know yet and I don't need to know, I am simply enjoying learning to trust the journey. It feels good to be free! Long term the fitness experience will develop into a life coaching business more than likely called VIE. Feel free to follow me on my journey, I hope I can inspire any reader of this to simply dedicate their life to what makes them HAPPY.
