5 things i love about myself today


How are you? I hope you are all doing well. Today, I wont lie, is not a great day for me. Yesterday was my birthday (I’m guessing most of you knew that anyway because I posted about it enough), but I spent the majority of the day in bed in a lot of pain. My face is swollen so one side is a lot fatter then it would normally look. I have been to the doctors and they aren’t sure what it is, so they have prescribed me some pain killer and have sent of a blood test, so I should hopefully know what’s wrong with me by Wednesday.

I won’t lie, I wasn’t going to post today, but I thought I made a schedule and I can’t just not post just because I have a swollen face, so I am currently sat on my floor, with my dads thermal socks on, my leggings, jumper, glasses and my dressing down on just powering on through the pain. Don’t get me wrong, I will complain, but for now, I’m rather proud of myself.

Today I thought I would share a positive post, not that any of my posts aren’t positive, but I’m feeling low, so I thought I would cheer myself up a little. I also think this could help some of you too, just to remind yourself that things aren’t as bad as they look. I think you should comment five things that you like/love about yourself.

5 things I love about myself today

  • Today I am loving how motivated I am.

I am in so much pain because of this golf ball hanging off my face, but I am so determined to get a few things done, I can’t sit around and complain all day even though I would love that.  I’m one of those annoying people who needs to stick a schedule otherwise I lose my blooming mind.

  • Today I am loving my fashion sense.

Today I was just going to just stay in bed in my Christmas pj’s and just chill, obviously things didn’t turn out that way, I had to get up and dressed before ten past nine. It almost killed me! So today my outfit of the day consisted of, my dads grey thermal socks (the best socks ever!), some black leggings, a white jumper top (it looks like a jumper at the front and a top at the back) and then I was able to whip out my knee high boots. I wont lie, I looked pretty great, selfie worthy too, if I didn’t have a fat face!

  • Today I am loving my music taste.

I am honestly kicking out the tunes today, a bit of Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and my ultimate fave G-easy! I’m having a little party session while being drugged up on paracetamol, so right now, life is good.

  • Today I am loving my procrastination skills

Is this even something to love? Probably not, but you know what, I love it anyway. I’m going to be honest, today I need to type this post up, type up my interview post that is going live tomorrow, I need to write Wednesdays and Fridays post as well as sort out my brothers birthday (his birthday is Wednesday) and then keep on top on my medication. Instead, I am sat watching Louise Pentland’s week 5 vlog. Oopsy.

  • Today I am loving my photography skills.

Today I have taken pictures for my upcoming posts and I love the way that they have come out, I have never really been the best at taking pictures with a camera, the settings kind of confuse me so I usually stick to my phone and snapchat, but this time, I thought I would take a risk. I’m so glad I decided to because the pictures aren’t actually that bad, I am quite proud of the outcome.

I’m actually going to add a sixth thing to this list just for fun.

  • Today I am loving my determination to eat.

I’m actually not hungry, which is so out of character for me, I could eat and eat all day, but since this swelling, I have lost my appetite and I just want to dose up on painkillers and sleep all day. I’m currently making myself dehydrated where I just can’t drink because it hurts too much and I am making my stomach growl where it just wants food. I am currently forcing myself to eat some bread and soup, every time I open my mouth it hurts but I am doing my best to get something inside of me.

There we are lovelies, the end of my post. Sorry I have complained about my mouth pretty much the whole way through! I hope you enjoyed reading this nonetheless, if you did, leave a like and comment 5 things you like/love about yourself today. If you really enjoyed this post, why not share this with your friends and social media.

Thank you for reading, I will be back here tomorrow with the first post of my interview segment, I am very excited to share it with you! Make sure you head over to my twitter to be able to enter my 19th birthday giveaway. I am so close to 150 followers too, so why not get a few friends to follow me too. Don’t forget, as soon as I reach 150 followers, I will be hosting a giveaway! That would mean two giveaways!

I’ll see you tomorrow at 7pm.

    5 things I like about myself today:
    1. My will power – I went food shopping and completely avoided chocolate/sweets for the first time ever! I avoided every temptation and talked myself out of grabbing some at the end!
    2. My tidiness – usually I’d say “I’ll do it later” but once I got home I put the shopping away and THEN I tidied up the mess I’d made before work this morning, and I feel great for it!
    3. My smile – usually I’m not a fan, but I’ve been struggling with a cold and feeling really run down, but today I managed to wear a smile on my face and it’s just nice to see it rub off on people.
    I can’t think of another 2, but this really made me think about the positives as I have a tendency to notice the negatives and ignore the positives so thank you! I hope you’re feeling better soon! Xx
