BELIEVE IN YOUR INNER BEYONCE

Beyonce has 24 hours in her day. Fact. Well, guess bloomin’ what?! So do you.

You have just as many hours, as Beyonce does.. I mean, you’re basically Queen B herself, right?

What are the qualities Beyonce has that makes her so successful? or maybe qualities she has that don’t contribute to her success.. just stuff you like about her in general?

  • SHE’S GOT GREAT HAIR.
  • SHES AN INDEPENDENT WOMAN (lol, get the reference?)
  • SHE SPENDS LOTS OF TIME WITH HER FAMILY
  • SHE GOT GRRREAT STYLE.

SO, now that you’ve created your little “things I love about Bey” list. I want you to go ahead and write another list with the heading: “things I love about me”. I know what you’re thinking “oh god.. no.” “That’s so narcissistic.” “I don’t want people to think I love myself”. Good news, pal. No one has to see this list but you if you don’t want them to. Here’s mine:

  • I’VE GOT GREAT HAIR (thank you thank you thank you, Charlotte @ The Hair Lounge, Mcr)
  • I’M AN INDEPENDENT WOMAN
  • I LIKE TO LAUGH
  • I DON’T TAKE MYSELF TOO SERIOUSLY
  • …BUT I KNOW WHEN TO
  • I HAVE FOUND MYSELF A GREAT GROUP OF FRIENDS
  • I’M GOOD AT COOKING
  • I ASPIRE TO INSPIRE
  • I LIKE MY SMILE
  • I LIKE MY EYES.. THANK YOU GENES FOR THESE LONG LASHES

…and you know what? I could keep on going. And I will do.. in my notepad.

“But why is this list so important, Katie?” I hear you ask. Because self love is the best love, thats why. Imma throw in an age old quote right here:

“No one can love you until you love yourself, and you cannot love anyone else, until you love yourself” — Raymond Charles Barker

You, reading this, you are amazing, you’re gorgeous, you’re smart and you’re courageous!

I’d love you guys to leave a comment with 1 thing you love about yourself!! ❤

WHY YOU SHOULD WRITE DOWN YOUR DREAMS

She Believed She Could, So She Did. 

You’ve probably seen this quote shared all over social media since forever. Why? Because it’s TRUE. I mean it.

I don’t think anyone that ever achieved greatness (however big or small) didn’t believe their dreams were possible before they reached them. The first step to believing your dreams is to say them. Say them out loud, say them on paper, shout them from the rooftops.

So grab yourself a pen and paper. Or the notes section in your phone, but trust me that good old fashioned pen and paper just works so much better.

The trick to manifesting all your desires is to believe you’re already there. Wanna be a singer? actor? writer? millionaire? Write it down. But write it as if you’re the future you. You already are singer. What does it feel like? What did it feel like when you released your first single? Did it go to number one? How did you do it? What steps did you take? Write it all down. Write your story. Keep on going, go into the tiniest of details.

The trick is to let your imagination take away with you. Close your eyes and picture everything. How great does that feel?! That’s your new story. Read this as often as you’d like, to remind yourself of your future..because “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” ― Napoleon Hill.

YOU CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO BE

Hey there! I celebrated my 25th birthday in April and, like most, was greeted with an array of beautiful messages from my friends all over the world. It was pretty eye opening. Handfuls of my friends wrote on my ‘wall’ & privately messaged me to use their birthday greeting as a way to thank and to tell me how much they are inspired by me. Even people I’ve never met. It took my breath away. Especially this one:

I went to high school with Sally, 10 years ago. We’re Facebook friends, but haven’t physically spoke to or seen each other since probably our last business studies class back in 2007 – so you can imagine how touched I was by this message! And it’s true, I AM all of those things – all because I decided I wanted to be. But I had no idea how much my being affected other people. I was lost for words. Everyday I share pictures and quotes and articles that influence me to keep on keeping on – as a way of saving the things I like the most so I can go back and read them and, I guess, in the hopes that they may affect others in the light they affect me. I didn’t realise how many people actually noticed and were encouraged by what I had to share.

Being told I inspire others has consequently inspired myself. Inspired myself to start writing down my own thoughts on the universe and our minds, so instead of just sharing other peoples thoughts and ideas I can share my own. AND I get to show you that YOU, anyone, everyone can be anything they want to be. Here goes!!
