Me: ‘Not everyone hates us’
Shara: ‘It’s sad that we are conditioned to think that.
‘People over here are not afraid to let you know how incredible you are. It’s funny because in British culture we are taught to down play everything, how we feel, who we are and our achievements. But it’s important to celebrate yourself and not be afraid to allow others to celebrate you too.’For 7 days and nights I consistently felt like a QUEEN. Can you imagine feeling like this everyday of your life just because you conditioned yourself to do so?
Why did it take me to fly 4 hours away to realise that I do myself a huge disservice by failing to remind myself everyday that I’m FABULOUS just for being me.
This month we are encouraging you to celebrate the FANTABULOUS you. Be your biggest supporter, shout about you, your race, your culture, what you do, your achievements, love you, be you, do you and for the people who don’t like your new found self confidence, tell them to step aside and to not interrupt you.
Can I get Amen?
We have some incredible stuff lined up for you this month:
