Hey, Are You Proud of Yourself?

Well, are you? and I mean all of yourself, the good, the bad and the ugly my friends. When I ask that question I ask it knowing that you and I are not exactly where we want to be at the moment. We all still have so many dreams and end goals ahead, But.. regardless, have you embraced your past and future mistakes? are you proud of yourself?

If your answer is not really, or No. I only pray that this post will give you the permission to be proud of yourself. This is a short quick post to say that society puts this standard on us that says you must be at this certain point in your life for you to truly be proud of yourself. You must be a certian body size, you must be going to THIS university, you must be pursuing THIS type career, you must be married and with kids at a certain age, you must have  THIS number of Instagram followers or more, you must be attaining  THESE amount of opportunities and frankly, to be honest.. I just do not agree.

There is a small routine I have decided to start saying to myself especially when I start feeling like a failure. I remind myself about recent accomplishments that I have had whether small or big and I say to myself " I am proud of you and can not wait for what is next.". We say how proud we are of  our peers and everyone else but ourselves.

This world has such high expectations of us as young adults and not only that, creates a society where we are being judged left and right no matter what we do. But.. you and I get up every morning even when we just do not feel like we can take it any more and we push through.

And guess what? I am proud of us. Are you proud of yourself?

Much love,

Nikki O.
