Be Proud of Yourself

In a time when people are told there's always some wrong with you or others. Be proud of yourself. There's always someone out there who thinks the world of you. But it must start within. Be proud of yourself and what you have accomplished. If you failed and know it. Then you're alive to try again. Be proud of yourself. Then go out there and be proud of others. There's a saying that misery loves company. Then so should confidence, kindness, happiness and success. Don't hoard it. Share it.



Also when I first saw this image. The author who posted it stated they agreed with the quote but would feel better with this lovely gown and fairy wings. Personally I felt differently. My first thought was I'm not getting jealous of this bitch in the image because I don't know what she did to get those wings or dress. I'm not a person who's easily made jealous and I'm (mostly) either happy or wary of the success of others. Success doesn't always fall on the nice people. That bird could be a demon shifter for all I know. Anyway, be proud of yourself and don't go around resenting others. People got their own success their own way and sometimes when you find out, you no longer want their life at all. So keep that look fairy lady, I'll get my own. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by. God Bless

  2. I bet that bird is a demon shifter.
    We are all made in God's image, which means we are really damn special indeed!

    1. Yes! We are special and God's love is essential. Thanks for coming Alex and I'm glad we agree about that shifty bird. :)

  3. Yeah, I don't trust that bird. What's a parrot doing in a clearly temperate climate? Those flowers and trees aren't part of a rainforest!

    Thanks for this message. I think a lot of people need to hear how important it is to love yourself, then go out and love others. Including me.

    1. Aww, you're welcome. Glad to see my message is spreading. Thanks for coming and happy to see that image didn't only raise my suspicions. We know what you are...'parrot'.

  4. Life isn't a competition. Others might seem to have what we want, but we don't know what they did to get there or what they're going through underneath the surface.

  5. I've decided to put misery and negative thoughts in the dustbin. They affect my writing big time.

  6. I love this and you're right, we should never let others affect how we feel about ourselves. Have a nice weekend!

  7. If we all shared confidence, kindness, happiness and success, no matter how others responded to us, then this would be a very different world.

  8. You make me smile, Sheena-kay: My first thought was I'm not getting jealous of this bitch in the image because I don't know what she did to get those wings or dress.

    Smart girl!

  9. Great motto we all should adopt: be proud of yourself. You have wings too, Sheena-kay, the wings of your creativity. They are just invisible to a mundane photo camera. But if look through a magic imaginator, you'll see the wings.

  10. Figuring out how others got something, like that dress, can lead to making goals so one day you'll have something like that, or even better. It's fuel for the internal fire.

  11. Your friend's reaction to the image and yours are so different and so interesting. I have to confess mine's a bit closer to yours. I didn't identify, but thought it wasn't right that someone's "true self" should be dressed up like a Barbie, a ridiculous and overly romanticized picture of a woman -- like a woman's only good if she's very feminine and pretty. Ugh.
