Friday Frills



You are not made up of those words that hurt you. 
Or that number on the scale. 
Or the expectations that you feel you will never meet. 

You are made up of nothing more than you. 
Simply, beautifully, wonderfully, uniquely you. 
You are a lovely and complex soul. 

An individually fascinating combination of thoughts, ideas, feelings, emotions. 
No other is as beautiful as you. Look past the mirror. Look at your soul. 
Only then will you see yourself as you truly are. Beautiful.

Love yourself. Forgive yourself. 
And be true to yourself. 
How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.

Lilli said...

Morning Sam, these frills impressed me so much. They are so true, especially the last phrase caught soon my eye. How others treat us is the natural consequence of how much we first treat ourselves: if we dont love ourselves, we only attire bad and wrong people. Is something you learn through the years, the first certainty are us. Happy Friday dear, kisses xo

Larissa said...

Today I can use your words better than every other Friday... I had a bad day at work and am stressed out...and then it feels so amazingly good to read your friday frills and suddenly I feel like I should just relax and do whatever pleases me and stop stressing myself :) Thanks alot!
Lots of love and enjoy your weekend :)

Great wise words Sam, I love the last part its so true. If we don't like something done to us don't do it to others. How you treat someone is how they will treat you!!! I had attended some music festivals locally but I'd love to attend the big ones like the V Festival and Glastonbury if I win tickets fingers crossed!! :) Have a lovely friday dear. xx
