Do yourself proud and smile!

Hey lovely people! How are you all doing? It’s so lovely to be writing again! I’m sorry I haven’t posted lately, it’s just been so much with university deadlines and coming back home and working for the summer. Busy busy! But here I am, back and positive as ever!

So I was having a think on what to write about and I had thought about something I’ve taken up lately, which is watching what I eat and doing lots of exercise. This feels really important to me and I am glad to be taking this on. Being all determined! My point is that when you take something on, or achieve something like a good grade or good feedback, it is vital that you tell yourself you’ve done a great job and to be proud of it! I think as people, we are so quick to judge and be hard on ourselves, but what about when it’s the other way around?

To get an end result, we tend to work so hard for something and we put in blood, sweat and tears until we get what we want. It can be so difficult, and there can be times when we feel like we should give up, but we get there. We see the light at the end of the tunnel and we realise we’ve done it! And it’s honestly the best feeling ever! Why don’t we grin from ear to ear and smile and tell everyone in excitement? Why don’t we do this more?

I decided to be really proud of myself for getting an average of a 2:1 at my second year of university. When I got all my grades back and saw that I got what I wanted, I knew that my hard work had paid off and I had done it. It can take so much to get to somewhere; a massive challenge along the way…but it’s worth it! So for those who haven’t said or heard this yet, well done you! You’re amazing! Keep going! Be proud!

I know how lovely it can be when people tell you they are proud of you and that you’ve done really well on something. It’s always lovely to get that acknowledgment from others and makes you feel much better too. If you can’t, I will do it and say a big well done!

There are so many things in life that we can’t control or change, so why don’t we work hard on something that means a lot to us and get that good feeling when you have achieved it? We tend to focus on the bad things in life, but why don’t we balance it with the good too? We are such amazing people with such great prospects. We all do ourselves proud and we should take the time to appreciate that. Let’s take a moment to celebrate it!

I just want to say a big thank you to those who read my blogs and take the time to give me feedback. I am so grateful for you lovely people! Thank you so much! Let me know if there’s anything you’d want me to write about or bring to attention for all you readers!

Until next time,

Asha
