You’re Kinda Awesome

It’s Time to Embrace the Fact that You’re Awesome

Do you constantly put yourself down and talk to yourself in a negative way? Do you keep focusing on your weaknesses rather than your strengths? If you do, it is time to stop. You do not deserve that kind of abuse on a daily basis from yourself or from anyone. You know why? Because you’re kinda awesome!

So many of us focus on our negative traits, past mistakes and what we haven’t achieved yet in life. We go through our days calling ourselves failures and believe we have no purpose. This is entirely untrue as everyone has something to contribute to the world. Stop beating yourself up and start realizing that you’re an amazing person and you do have a great purpose in this lifetime. If you need some tools and tips to help you on your way to a more-positive you, here are some to get you started:

Focus on Your Strengths

We have heard it before and we’ll hear it again, but that’s because there’s a lot of truth to it. Put your negative thoughts about yourself on the back burner for now. Even if you want to keep them as a safety blanket, put them in a mental box with a lid on it. What are you good at? Are you good at solving problems? Can you fix computers or do you know how to build a website from scratch? Do you know how to play the guitar or can you knit a sweater? Everyone is good at something. Focus on your strengths and build on them.

Ask Your Friends for Support

Sometimes the best way to know how special we are is to be told by those who care for us. Get your closest friends together (those you ultimately trust) and hand out a piece of blank paper to each friend. Have everyone write down each friend’s name and what they admire about each friend. Do it for everyone in the room. No one should sign their name on the paper. Then put the papers in a pile and mix them up. Have each person read out one page of comments to everyone and continue around the room. Hearing how special people think you are and what they admire about you will make you feel, well… kinda awesome!

Please don’t quit five minutes before the miracle happens.” – Psychic Yemaya ext. 5143

Listen to Your Gut, Listen to Your Heart

Too often we listen when others tell us who we should be and what we should do with our lives. Words likes “should” and “have to” put us into a pressure box before we even have a chance to bloom. Be your awesome self and ignore what others think of you. Trust yourself and listen to what your heart tells you and what your natural instincts are trying to show you.

Avoid wasting time putting yourself down and beating yourself up for things that you have no control over in this present moment. The yesterdays are long gone, the tomorrows don’t exist yet and all you have right now is today. Here and now is the only place you need to be.

    It’s so true about what your blog says. For years I have been so down on myself. Well today I got out some old photos of when I was younger. Looking back I was alright after all! The girl in the pictures was a beautiful young woman who just did not appreciate herself or what gifts that God had given her. Thank you for addressing the negativity and how putting yourself down is not the answer. From now I am focusing in the here and now. It will be a challenge as I am not used to thinking like everyone else needs to think about themselves of being kinda awesome. But I will certainly give it a go. Thank you again.

    Went to the doctors today. Was told I have high cholesterol and depression. Told my boyfriend, I just feel so worthless. Im disabled and the pain has been getting worse. I also had a bad past since childhood. Low and behold, I get on the computer tonight and what are the odds that the article is exactly about me! I am blown away. Thank you for the little bit of encouragement!

    Hello, I agree with you I am always putting myself down sometimes because of what others think of me. I try to forget about them and move on but every time I do someone else bring me down. Yes sometimes my past get me down also. Thanks for the advice I am going to try to use it. Thanks!

    This is so true. We are always worrying about what others think others of us. And thinking about others and why circumstances around us can be so negative. Step back and think before reacting to a comment that really doesn’t matter. When you stop being important to the people around us we need change. If an acknowledgement is becoming too difficult, stop and take responsibility for your part but leaving people that are toxic. These surroundings
    and people aren’t worth the struggle. Find and define ideas to empower ourselves in a positive way.

    Dear ” dead man walking “,

    My words probably won’t help much ,as you need time to heal, but know that there are really good people in the world that DO care about others without any agenda attached.

    Time is a healer….you will see that.

    Meanwhile, I will keep you in my prayers and pray that you will heal and go on to find the happiness you deserve…… and that you attract others to you that appreciate all that you ARE and DO.

    Blessed Be )O(

    Something happened to me in 9th grade that left me depressed from most of the school making fun of me.
    Two years later and I haven’t gotten any help. Now I hardly talk and I can tell people don’t like it. I don’t either. That’s why I’m trying to change and this article really helped. Thanks 🙂

    ALL LIMITATIONS ARE SELF IMPOSED, iTS OTHER PEOPLE WHO SEEM TO THINK THEY CAN MOVE THE LINES SUIT THEIR MOTIVES AND/OR AGENDA. when a person decides to take my sons away and deny me access based on the fact that my sons mother, my wife, doesn’t love me anymore and is not I love with me anymore. I had a death grip on HOPE, for4 years I held on, then I call my sons to talk to them and my five year old tells me over the ,”daddy, daddy mommy has a boyfriend now’ I didn’t even know. For 4 years I paid for her living arrangements $1600.00 a month so she could be full time student, She asked for her own apartment way from her dad and brother. her boyfriend was right there living with her the whole time. You wanna know awesome….. I been living and working here in California, $44.00 an hour, I paid for my housing, my food ,my living arrangements and I was paying my wives living arrangements as well. From the moment we started seeing each other she never worked not one damn day. For three years straight I clear $127k. I gave everything to her to show I cared enough to do that for her. FUCK IT!
    the purpose of my life is to serve as a warning to others. I learned a long time ago, if you gotta go, TAKE COMPANY WITH YOU! tonight before you go to bed , stand in front of a window and listen. When its quiet so quiet you can hear a tear drop to the floor. Close you eyes and listen… there can you hear that, its with the wind. you hear it, you know what that is?
    THATS EVIL….AND IT’S HEADED YOUR WAY

    Fantastic article, Natasha !!!!!!

    I always enjoy reading your articles, Natasha……

    ….and what most people don’t know or realize is that we come into, are born into, this lifetime ( or incarnation ) with EVERYTHING we need to succeed in life with.

    All we need to do is to unlock our hidden potential and utilize our Karmic gifts . ….and yes, we ALL have , and were born with in this lifetime, our unique talents and gifts.

    If you know you have depression then you know your thoughts are not the best right now. I have thought of taking my own life before when I was depressed but I couldn’t because I knew what I would do to my family. They would have to live with that the rest of their lives. I also don’t know with suicide do we get to go to heaven, if there is a heaven, I don’t want to take that chance. Please get help. If not for yourself then for someone important to you.
    At least wait until your depression is controlled.

    The reason I beat myself up is at least due to depression, plus…You’re right…I keep living in the past. My x wife turned out to be a millionaire, while I’m a nobody who once was a promising success, but floundered & failed due to money problems. Now I’m old & sick & just want to kill myself to get life over with.

    Wow. Your message is like you know me. I have so many negatives in my life – that I just need to let go. I am tired of beating my self up because of the past. I am so relieved to read that you too are right. But it is hard – You are right the yesterdays have come and gone. I will be special to myself, like myself. I am funny, (kinda) pretty .Oops there I go again. I Am a pretty LADY, I am up on current affairs in many things. And I did not even know how many things I know. My husband passed away 4 years ago. I finally “stepped out” and it was pretty scarey. So, I will hold my chin up and be PROUD of myself.

    Thank You. (you just changed my life,whoop whoop)
