With the start of my new blog and with me embarking on this happiness journey, I am very happy that my friend Natalie from Brunette Musings has tagged me in this self-care tag! I think it's a great way to get started with this new blog and a great way to help me figure out what self-care means to me. So without further adieu I present to you, the self care tag!!
- What advice would you give a child about to grow up with the pressures of today's media and its crushing expectations?
- What song puts you in a good mood every time?
- What is the best advice someone gave you or you realized about life?
- Who makes you giggle like a giggle monster?
- What is something about society that bugs you that you wish didn't?
- What is one of your favorite things to do on weekends?
- What is something you're really proud of that you've done?
- What is one of your favorite memories with a friend?
- What advice would you give to someone who needs a boost of confidence?
- Lastly, how do you plan on investing in self-love?
First and foremost you must discover who you are and stick to that and know that you are beautiful both inside and out. What the media expects not everyone will be able to obtain, but you aren't living for the media, you're living for yourself. Make yourself happy and the rest will fall into place.

Nothing lasts forever. Not pain, not sadness, not unhappiness, none of it. Think of the end and think of the happiness and believe that nothing lasts forever and where you are in this moment is not where you will be tomorrow, next week, next month or next year.
My friends! We recently started a group chat with the GroupMe app and it has been the best thing that we've ever done. That way we all talk to each other everyday, anytime of the day and we have a really good chat all the time!
Hmmm... a lot, society is really disappointing most times. The one thing that has been weighing heavily on me though is the high level of racism and how much society treats victims like criminals.
Either do nothing or do lots, with my friends. It all depends on what kind of week I've had. If I've been super busy, the only thing I want to do is relax stay in the house, read, surf the web = nothing. If I've been bored all week, then I want to actually do something on the weekend.
Getting up the courage to leave a bad situation and kind of just let it fizzle out and let it go.
Since I'm trying to make 2015 the year of things to remember, I'll reminisce on the road trip we took last weekend to New Jersey. It was great! We had an amazing time all of us just being together. We went to a bar, threw a party, cooked together, it was awesome.
Remember that you are important, if not to anyone else, to yourself. Remember to put yourself first and remember that you have a purpose in life and if you haven't discovered that purpose then you need to keep pushing to find that purpose.
I plan to invest in self love by putting myself first in all situations. If I'm not happy with that situation I plan to change it, tweak it, until I'm happy
Answering this self-care tag has been amazing! It really helped me think about life and all the things I've been through - both good and bad. I tag my friend Karina - who can do this once her blog is up and running and anyone else who would like to participate.
