Self Love

Phloxies Blog: Nigerian Lifestyle Blog

I used to look at the mirror and not like the girl i saw, i was not satisfied, i was not happy, i didn't think i looked attractive, i wanted more. I wanted to be like the people on tv and magazines, with their perfect body, long hair, pointed nose, nice curves and pretty eyes. I didn't think anyone would take me serious or love me the way i was. I wanted to change everything about me. 

But then i grew up one day, i realised i was loved, i realised you can never be perfect, i realised that the people on tv and magazine too were not as perfect as themselves on tv and magazine. It was all a lie.

No one can love you if you don't love or appreciate yourself, you are perfect the way you are, every one deserves to be loved, especially by the most important person which is YOU. These steps will help you love yourself: 
  1. Never compare yourself with others, you don't know what is ahead of them.
  2. Always be with people that really loves you and reminds you how amazing you are.
  3. Everyone is talented in one way or another, find your call.
  4. Celebrate your wins no matter how little it is, make sure to look in the mirror, pat yourself and say "yes i did it, i am proud  of me" 
  5. Treat others with love and respect, help a needy, there is a fulfilment it brings .
  6. Find something you are grateful for each day, if it's good? Be thankful and if it's bad? Be thankful for the lesson you learnt from it.
  7. Learn to say NO sometimes to things that will put you in a difficult situation, it doesn't make you bad or selfish, it makes you smart.
  8. Be human, it is okay to make mistakes, don't beat yourself up for one, laugh, learn from it and move on.
  9. Forgive yourself  for any bad thing that you have done, it happens to everyone, let go of bad experiences and trauma, its in the past. 
  10. Think hard and let go of a bad character that chases people away from you. 
At the end of the the day, don't be narcissistic, feel better and everything will fall in place. 

I hope this article was helpful........:)

A New Chapter Of My Life

It's the first day of May and I want to say that I am really grateful about how good 2018 has been to me so far, being alive, my friends, the health of my family and I want to also use this opportunity to wish you all a very successful month full of accomplishments. 🍾

So y'all...... I got a new job with a popular radio station as a music editor and I'm really ecstatic. It's been a different experience, changing my environment, having the opportunity to meet new, smart people and celebrities, emphasis on "celebrities" this in particular has been wonderfuuuuul. 😎

It's one thing to get a job and its another to get a job you love! Me, I got both and everyday I am thankful to God for such grace and favour, it wasn't easy, I cried myself to sleep and went on my knees asking what I wasn't doing right and why my friends were getting jobs before me. Thank God it's over now and I look forward to making the most of this experience and milk every oppor…

Self Esteem and Learning to Love my Nose

There was little I loved about myself while growing up. I was 16 when I noticed I was very skinny, had a big nose and battling with bad acne and pimples. I was assured it was puberty hence the acne but I was worried about the nose; I hated it for a long time, it was big, flat and out of shape or so I thought. Back in secondary school I would pinch my nose for a long time, hopefully it would have a better shape. I had beautiful friends in school back then and I would spend most of my time pointing out what face feature I liked and wished I had.

During my university days, pouting was my saving grace. I would either pout or give a very big smile just to make my nose look smaller. I relied on people to give me a good validation about my looks and pictures which is really sad as I think about it now. I really feel sorry that we live in a world where there is a definition of a woman's beauty. For three years I have learnt to love my big nose, not because I was forced to or didn't h…
