This blog post is in celebration of my 23rd birthday! I know, I am OLD. 😦 So instead of a makeup blog post yet again. I decided to write something like this! Hope you enjoy it! xx


 

Never cut yourself short.

I know you aren’t the best at Trigonometry, Chemistry or Chinese. But your grades on paper are far less important than the values and skills you will soon learn when you graduate out of high school. Don’t you ever feel disheartened by others or by results you didn’t expect but let that be motivation for you to keep going. You are far more capable of doing great things than you think. Never sell yourself short. You got this girl!

The friends you surround yourself with define you.

Like I sent before, you will be meeting all kinds of people. You will discover some rutts and meet some diamonds, its a process. You will loose some friends along the way, and that is okay. Surround yourself with people you love and who love you in return. You have yet to meet of an amazingly passionate and driven group of people in your life. You’ll know when you meet them.

Don’t do anything that you don’t want to do.

This does not only go for you, teenage Bea to hear this, but every girl going through peer pressure. We all get to an age when we meet different types of people(good or bad). You will eventually be experiencing parts of life that everyone goes through. But at the end of the day, it is your decision if you want to do it of not. Don’t do it because all your friends are doing it. Be your own person. Be your own boss.

Take care Beautiful!

You Vs.Society | Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

 DSC09948ee

I know.. We are only human. Even if we don’t intend to, we compare our lives and ourselves to others. It’s become involuntary. I sometimes find myself wondering why I don’t have the same pear shaped body as so and so does or why don’t I have such an interesting job that flies me to places like this person. But on the other hand, we also compare ourselves to others to make ourselves feels better too like “Thank God I am not in her situation.” 

Truth be told, it has become so easy lately to get wrapped up in the lives of people when our world revolves around the internet and social media. *guilty* From flawless selfies to galavanting around exotic streets around the world, we see a split second of someone’s life and we then start to think that they have it all together. We then spend time trying to be more like them because we think by doing that, it’ll make us happy. It won’t.

Lets not confuse comparison with inspiration. Well, its pretty normal to be inspired by things we see and people we meet, but when that inspiration turns into comparison, by putting ourselves down and beating ourselves up because we aren’t this ‘ideal’, its not being inspired anymore.

I want you, yes you, to know that you are good enough. And you are worthy of things you do not yet have but will come in the right time. There will always be people who will have more or less than you, who are better or worse than you at something, or who have things that you wish you had or glad you hadn’t. There is no point to compare your life to another, because each life is unique in its own way. Our feats, our struggles are our own and remember those things are what we should be proud of.

The only person you should be comparing yourself to is who you were yesterday and who you are today.
