Self Love Is Hard, Who Knew?

I think we all know by now that fulfillment is a topic constantly occupying my brain, and at this moment in my life, this concept is inextricably linked to self-love. We hear when we’re growing up that “confidence is attractive” and if you don’t have it, you could just “fake it until you make it.” I have problems with these statements already: 1) the concept that confidence is for other people and not yourself already pushes you to be confident for the wrong reasons (attractiveness) instead of the right reasons (happiness), and 2) it’s so hard to pretend to be confident when you don’t have confidence. If it wasn’t, everyone would go around walking like Beyonce. And in case you haven’t been outside lately, they do not.

YouTube Is Still The Shit

YouTube has always been my favorite social networking site, ever since my middle-school self accidentally stumbled upon a makeup tutorial while searching for a Taylor Swift music video (different times).

Pay Attention

I’ve recently noticed something about myself that I don’t care to admit but that I will anyway for the sake of personal improvement (and a blog post): I’ve completely forgotten how to pay attention.

#Currently

CURRENTLY is an ongoing, ever-changing playlist that I* have created because…

2. Constantly get sick of songs and need new content (refer to #1)

Start The Year Off Breathing

I’m constantly reeling with a laundry list of things I want to change about myself and my life, which means that I’m always writing down goals. I’ve done that more in 2017 than ever before, especially because I’ve been journaling and self-reflecting like it’s my day job. So while I do cringe at “New Year, new me” (mostly because it’s just reductive and overused), I really am loving 2018’s New Year fuss.
