Acceptance and Change

10:46

One of my new year resolutions was to accept myself but now that we are 5 months into the year, I have started looking back to my resolutions and thinking that maybe I chose the wrong ones.

I have had a little battle with these thoughts, I always thought that accepting meant acknowledging and moving on in a "yep okay nothing to see" kinda way. But doesn't that mean if I accept myself I can't change who I am? There are parts of me that I don't like (eg. my nose) that I can't really change. However there are things I don't but I can change, like my hair. However is that accepting me for "who I am"? Overall I want to be happy with myself whether that is through acceptance or change.

There are many steps to happiness I have found out. For the bits you don't like and can't change: accept them, they make you, you! I'm not going  to use the quote "everyone has flaws" because we don't. Everyone is unique and that makes each individual who they are. For the bits you don't like but can change; change them! There is nothing wrong with changing you to be who you want to be and of course you are being the real you. Not being the same Laura as I was born doesn't make me fake for my part, Iv'e been trying to love myself more and be happier. Even though I am not at the same stage I am to be: I'm getting there.

Lots of Love

  9. Lovely post! I think we're always seeking, getting better; at the moment we give up, then we're done. Happiness is something we become obsessed with getting, but we need to start looking for it ourselves :)
