Today I’ll confess something I never had the courage to share before. For the longest time I believed that I’m not pretty enough and that my looks are way below the average standards of beauty. I don’t know where that came from. Maybe it’s because I rarely get complimented on my looks and perhaps it’s because the people who matter the most are overly critical of me. I grow up in a strict household; my parents are very serious and emotionally dry sort of saying. I never remember my mom ever telling me I look beautiful on the contrary her criticism have always stung. It used to hurt hearing her calling other girls pretty and sometimes I would feel jealous.
Therefore, as part of my self acceptance journey I decided to embrace myself the way I’m and to love myself. To tell you the truth I still have a hard time believing anyone who tells me they think I’m beautiful. I still think of it as empty compliments or social hypocrisy. From now on I’ll make a conscious effort to accept those compliments and think of them as genuine. I love telling other girls/women I know how pretty they are because I know what this genuine compliment can do to them. I hate it when I see girls hate on each other. Calling someone else ugly will never make you look any more beautiful so instead of tearing each other down we should help each other grow. I don’t mind telling strangers they look beautiful. I enjoy telling my friends and sisters what I find attractive about them; the look I see in their eyes when I genuinely compliment them is priceless. #girlpower#girllove
Sisters are one of God’s greatest gifts. If you don’t have a sister you are missing out on a lot!!! Going for photo shoots is one of our traditions. I suggest you try it once it’s a fun away to capture memories .#sisters#sisterlove#sorrynotsorry 😂 💞 this lovely picture was taken by this talented photographer @clicksbym
Throw back to 14th of October 2014. I miss #Italy . This was the best trip ever because I’ve made friends with the best people. We were strangers 4 years ago and now we are best friends and I love them all. Shout out to Italy group the coolest friends!! I’m thankful to @wwwausedu for organizing these alumni trips and kindling this friendship.
#Reflection Although visiting Disneyland was the biggest disappointment during my trip to Japan. The somewhat heavy rain made up for the disappointment. I still managed to make some good memories and had some fun. If you are wondering why, well Disneyland rides are mostly for kids. If I could get a do-over I would visit DinseySea. Surely I would miss the castle show and fireworks but I would enjoy the rides. 😉 #tradeoffs#disneyland#disneysea#tokyo#japan#memories#happytimes ❤️
I like it when brands put effort in creating their marketing slogans and packaging. This Zara box that I received after shopping online on their website creatively states that it was made out of recycled old boxes. "Our boxes are made of boxes with past 😂" it's really funny yet wittily reflects Zara's environmental responsibility. Good job #zara#onlineshopping#onlineshopoholic#marketing#slogans#brandidentity#branding
