Self care, self love, self journey

Does putting yourself first make you selfish? HELL NO.
I am all for rising each other up and supportive others, but putting myself first is something I aim to do in 2018. You may not be like me, but all I do is think about everyone else, putting peoples thoughts/feelings etc before my own. I'm loyal and I like to support every one around me in every way I can. But when it comes to putting myself first I feel rather lost, it's like unknown territory for me. But heres to putting myself first, giving myself self care, self love and focusing of my self journey. Doing so, doesn't mean I care any less about the people around me it just means I focusing on myself a little more. 

As I have mentioned in previous posts I have been working out, interning, finished my degree, turned 21 etc. All of those things have been apart of my self journey and I am proud of the steps I have made and the person I am. But recently I have been thinking about how to better myself, as I always want to learn, improve and develop as a person. Yet I am also kinda scared to get out of my comfort zone. Getting fit was probably my first step of self care, self care to me is the little things, pampering yourself, getting your nails done, eating right, working out and feeling the best you care feel. I feel like people don't do enough of self care, everyones always busy or rushed and the things that seem relevant get forgotten about. I know life is fast, stuff changes all the time but you have to stop.Think.Relax or life just passes you by and you miss it. Self care is a must have in every persons life and I've decided to make self care a priority of mine.

Then theres self love, I guess thats the hardest one for a lot of people. But I believe in the concept of you have to love yourself first before anyone else can. I would say I do that, I know my flaws, my annoying habits and the stuff that makes me tick. I've accepted that and I love who I am. Not in a big headed way, like looks etc. I love myself in a way where I am confident in who I am, what I believe in and what I want in life. Everyone has things they dislike about themselves, I felt unconfident in my body so I started working out. I feel like clothes didn't look as good on me when I was pale, so I fake tan everyday. I over think and over analyse a lot, so I started to read, relax and take long baths. I believe in self love and getting self love can mean that you need to rethink life, what you want from it and who you want to be. That means if there things you don't like about yourself you can do little things to improve them. I don't believe in changing people or blocking out the real you. But I do believe in self growth and falling in love with who you are.

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.” 
― C. JoyBell C.

Then theres self journey. This is life I guess, your life, your experiences, the life you make. Everyone has days of defeat, days of saddess, days of depression, days of well everything. But there the days you get through, the days that make you stronger. The ones that nearly beat are the ones that actually make you. Guess what, noone no matter what power you think they have over you, not anyone can make you feel those ways, only you do that. You have the power of your mind, your body, your soul and noone can take that away from you. It's your superpower, noone is you. For my self journey I am going to work, thrive and create the world I want, through all the shit times in life there what make the happy times that more rewarding.

I know that my self journey isn't going to be easy, the last 21 years wouldn't have been a breeze but they made me, me. A self journey means focusing on YOU. Putting yourself first. Working hard for what you want. Better yourself as a person. Experiencing life for the good and the bad. Meeting people and creating relationships. Your self journey is what you make it. It doesn't make you selfish it just makes you in control of the life you want to lead forever. So heres to all of our self journeys and the life were gonna make for ourselves.
