What would you tell your younger self?
That’s the question YouTube is asking women around the world for its #DearMe initiative. Launched in honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, YouTube is encouraging people to upload a video letter to the site, addressing their younger selves and the issues they faced growing up. Famous youtuber such as Essie Button, Michelle Phan, Scherezade shroff, Miss Malini and more have already uploaded #DearMe video and trust me they are really inspiring and encouraging. After watching their videos i thought i should also contribute to this campaign and i am doing my part here.
These are the few messages i would give to my younger self :
1.STOP SETTLING FOR ANYTHING LESS : Life is too short to settle for anything less than what we truly want. The only way to embrace your potential is to stop settling. Excellence is a place where people who refuse to settle for mediocrity live; it is where one reaps from all the hardwork sown. It is a journey of continuos progression toward the goals in your life.
"The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for."
2.GO WITH THE FLOW : When you screw up, Don't panic, It happens!! Just accept it and move on with life, Try not to over think for weeks, months and years about something that went wrong. Learn from the mistake, Pick it up and move on with life.
3.DO IT NOW : Time wasted is time lost for ever, Hence procrastination, that is the habit of postponing things, is rightly called the thief of time. Do not postpone and don't wait for a right time, you have to do it now and make it happen right instead of waiting for the right moment.
4.EMBRACE YOUR LIFE : Just let go of how you thought your life should be and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your conciousness. Always remember everything in life happens for a reason.
5.ACCEPT WHO YOU ARE : Stop being someone else and Accept the real you. You are unique and yes you are your own kind of beautiful. It doesn't matter if you are short and over weight, Don't put pressure on yourself, instead of competing to someone else, look for the positive side in you and work for the better you.
BE YOUR OWN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL : BE YOU!!
CELEBRATE BEING A WOMAN
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAYMuch love
