Working on Low Self-Esteem!❤

Related image

You really are good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, strong enough and you know what? You need to start believing those things about yourself because it’s true! People can encourage and compliment you all day long but until you start believing it about yourself for yourself then your confidence and self esteem will never get to where it needs to be. So with that being said, today is another day to create a list but instead of just reading, I want you to actually do this in your personal time when you get a chance. Write down five things you L O V E about yourself and if you don’t want to write it then just think about it!

It is so easy to notice the things you love about other people but what about you?? And I don’t get the wrong idea here; I’m not encouraging cockiness but for the ones who struggle with low self-esteem issues .. I want to help you! Self-Love is such an ongoing process and it is so important !! When you’re able to love yourself, you respect yourself so much more. It’s just easier to walk away from things that stop serving you growth and give more time to the things and people that do! So, I made my list of five things I love about myself. This was such a positive, personal exercise of both self love and self care! You should try it.

Okay.. so here’s my personal list 👀 let’s dive right into this!💖💛

1. Friendly Personality

I’m a friendly person! I’ve always been that way and honestly I think I get that characteristic from my mom. I don’t meet too many strangers unless I just really don’t feel like dealing with people that day haha and yes, sometimes I get in those moods but for the most part I am probably one of the nicest people you will ever on this side of earth and I’m not ashamed to say that 🙂 The world needs more FRIENDLY people if you ask me! I get tired of running into semi-friendly, fake, rude, hateful, mean and hard people. So I’m always letting my friendly little light shine.

2. Encouraging Spirit

 Encouraging people is something that feels and comes so natural to me, I swear. A lot of personal things that I’ve been through in my life has a lot to do with it. I know what it’s like to be at the bottom and feel like you don’t have the support or encouragement that you need to go keep going. Therefore, I desire to push people into greatness any way that I can !! 🙂 

3. Sense of Humor

Besides being one of the nicest people you’d ever meet, I’m also probably one of the silliest! I love laughter. I love laughing til my stomach hurts from laughing so hard! Sometimes, I can be a complete goofball and most of the time that’s how I get through most of my days! (Work Days Especially) I’m thankful that being silliness is a part of my personality because people with those dry sense of humors and dry personalities kill me … Oh my gosh. I cannot stand it. The dryness alone will suck the fun right out of things.

4. Creative

This is a part of me that I love; creativeness !! 🙂 I’ve always been a crafty, maybe a little artistic but I didn’t realize how creative I was or how creative I could be until last year when I developed a hobby of making burlap wreaths, tie blankets, bow ties, hair bows and personalized canvases !!! To make that stuff is time consuming but it’s {.F U N.} and relaxing!!

5. Different

One thing I don’t try to do is keep up. I do my own thing, stay in my own lane and ride my own wave. I could care less if people like how I move. I like what I like. A picky eating, thrifty shopping, friendly, gospel music loving, strawberry lemonade drinking, sarcastic, crafty human being I am!! haha. Being myself is so much more fun than trying to fit in with everybody else! 🙂

How cool is it that the same God, who created the mountains, oceans, and galaxies, looked at you and though the world needed one of you too? Learn to embrace yourself just the way you are and love who God created you to be! 

I really hope you take time to engage in this personal activity of self-love & self-care. It will help improve your self-esteem. Sending lots of love and positive vibes your way! Be great, be happy and be free in your authenticity!! Xx!!

Never Underestimate the Power of a Good Attitude!😉

 You can’t have a good  day with a bad attitude and you can’t have a bad day with a good attitude !! 🤷‍♀️Think positive and positive things will happen. Great thoughts become a great attitude. A great attitude becomes a great mood. A great mood becomes a great day. A great day becomes a great week. A great week becomes a great year and a great year becomes a great life !! To experience a great life, you need to change and control the way you think. A good attitude is everything so make sure you pick a good one! This post is very short, sweet and to the point today but it still sends a powerful message. A bad attitude can literally block love, blessings, and destiny from finding you. Don’t be the reason you don’t succeed!!

Sending lots of love and positive vibes your way !!! 🙂

5 Tips to Help Ease Frustration with Your Blog’s Progress

2f3cf47b92b0854053e008202d1d6e0c.jpg

Over the past week, I’ve noticed some of my fellow bloggers have been discouraged by the progress their blog is making. For some, it’s just not doing as good as they expected and for others they just feel like the progress of their blog is at a stand-still. I can see where that would be frustrating, especially when you’re trying to monetize your blog and make somewhat a career out of it. I haven’t been blogging for a very long time. I’ve actually only been doing it for roughly 4 months now so I can’t tell you that I’ve been completely successful with mine just yet BUT I can say this – My blog is progressing much quicker than what I could have ever imagined and I’m well on my way to being successful with it! I’m not looking to make a career out of it but an extra $200-$300 per month would be nice enough for me! I just wanted to encourage and share some tips with other newbies out there or anyone who’s blog is at a stand-still and just needs a push and few reminders to keep it going!! 💛

 

EFFORT

The type of effort you put into each post matters. From the title, to the length of your post and every photo included MATTERS. It’s not anything to be stressed about but you definitely need to make sure you put some real thought into it. You can’t just throw something together and expect to get an amazing reaction from your readers.

CONSISTENCY

In everything that you do, be consistent. Consistency will always produce great results. So whether you blog daily, a few times per month or just once a month.. try to be consistent about it otherwise you’ll lose your readers attention. You may have some people who really enjoy reading your blog posts to the point where they seek yours out daily for inspiration, encouragement or ideas and if they get used to you posting on some sort of a consistent basis then they’ll always know when they can come check your website for fresh new content. And if you’re concerned about numbers/stats, then those are views that you will always have. Consistency is everything so try stay on board with it.

BUILDING A COMMUNITY

OK.. this is the one I’m personally working on improving for my blog now. There is one thing that I’ve not been able to understand in my four months of blogging and it’s this question right here: How is it that a blogger has 3,000+ followers but way less than 100 likes on their posts? That’s something that just hasn’t made any sense to me at all until probably a few days ago. I realized that I’ve almost reached 600 followers but the amount of likes on my posts and sometimes my views weren’t adding up and then out of nowhere it just hit me .. even though I am connected to a lot of bloggers, many of them aren’t in the same niche as I am therefore, they’re not engaging in what I post.

For example, I’m not really interested in the cosmetic or beauty blogs. Ya know.. I’m just not the biggest fan of make-up. I’m simple. As long as I have my foundation, mascara and occasionally eyeliner then I’m good and to be quite honest with you, I’m not big on the brands either. No offense to the beauty and cosmetic bloggers but because it’s not a big interest of mine, I’m less likely to click on their posts. My niche, on the other hand, is more about personal growth, self-love and self-care. I’m most likely to click on posts that are related to my niche and vice versa. However, that is not something that stops me from supporting other bloggers. In a way, it’s kind of a “I scratch your back, you scratch mine” type of thing and I believe that’s kind of where and how so many people get so many followers but less likes on their posts. Now to resolve the issue of having entirely too many followers but not enough views requires building a community! And that just simply means that you need to connect more with people in your niche. Make sure you constantly supporting them just like they’re supporting you and soon you will find that they’ll help you grow your blog & on top of that it’ll be easier to get more views on your blog as well as increased traffic, great responses and reactions.

KNOWING YOUR AUDIENCE

I think it’s important to write about topics YOU enjoy talking about but at the same time try to make your content relatable to your audience. It’s so important to get to know your audience and pay attention to what actually captures and captivates their attention because if your followers can’t relate to what you’re writing about then you’re less likely to keep a steady amount of traffic coming to your blog. For example, if your blog is based on poetry and majority of your followers are poetry fans BUT you decide you want to do something different and try writing short stories… well, there’s a big chance that you’re gonna lose some of your views and traffic simply because that’s not what your readers/followers are interested in. I kinda think that goes back to the “building a community” thing. Try to connect with people that share the same interest as you.

TIME

Now I’ve just recently said this in one of my previous posts but if you’re trying to monetize your blog, then plan to invest in it for a long time. This is not a “get rich quick” scheme. Just like anything else, it takes time, effort, consistency and patience. A successful blog does not happen overnight. So keep writing and inspiring people!! I promise there are people out there who are willing to read and listen to what you have to say! You just gotta find the right ones and remember to stay connected to those in your same niche!! 🙂

 

I hope these 5 tips help you !! Don’t give up on your blog. Slow progress is always better than no progress at all. Thanks so much for reading. YOUR company is always appreciated !! I wish you much success in your blogging journey!!💖
