You are Good Enough

One of my favorite quotes of all time is “Your background does not mean that your back should be on the ground”. I look round me and all I see are people who all seem to be better than I am, they are more beautiful (or so I thought), they looked smarter, they smile more, they have more talents and display much more wealth than I have. I actually started to believe that I was not good enough.

Why you are already a winner?

My parents loved me, but that love was not going to be enough especially when my sister seem to be prettier, smarter and much more gracious. I know they tried to hide it, especially daddy, it was just too obvious and I was also way too sensitive. As if to add insult to injuries, almost all the children in the neighborhood seems to prefer her to me, in fact they preferred everyone else to me. This led me to a reasonable assumption; I was not good enough!

School did not seem to make it any better, arithmetic seems to be everything to my teachers and I was never going to be good at it. They always seem so upset with my mathematics grades, they helped me to turn my reasonable assumption into an obvious conclusion, I was not good enough!

I decided to impress, I would clean and cook, wash and iron; just so my folks will take their attention away from my sister long enough for them to notice me, and it never worked. I would sometimes feign sickness, that didn’t work either; I studied so hard I got into honors’ roll in my school, nobody even remembered by the next day after our report cards got home; I was heartbroken, nothing would ever work.

Know Yourself to Be Happy

As I grew up, I found ways to be rebellious and to fight a lot, I thought I had a point to prove; if people were not going to accept and love me naturally, I might as well make sure they notice me. So I thought if I kept doing bad things I would be noticed, I was wrong, it only made things worse.

I got into high school before I got completely fed up with competing with others, I had this great teacher who told me I walked like a queen, she told me I behave like someone of royal blood. He would tell me I was special, I was unique and I should seek to live like a queen.

Emotions are Contagious.

One day, I broke down in his office and wept bitterly as he tried to drag me out of the pit of inferiority complex that had been my prison from childhood. From that day, I started a process that made me realize that I needed nothing else to be good enough, I just have to know it and live it.

I am so glad today that I can tell you that you are god enough; you only need to know what you have and the best way to use it. Never compare yourself with someone else, you will never be them and they will never understand what it means to be you. Go ahead and live your dream, you are good enough and you have what it takes to become what you were born to be!

Accept yourself, appreciate yourself, love yourself, build up yourself, and celebrate yourself. You are good enough. OrganicIsBeautiful Signature

Happy? Me? Really?

2017 will be my 5th year abroad, living in Asia. I feel blessed most of the time. It takes sometimes a quick reminder to myself to keep in mind how lucky I am. Plus, having OiB has become a personal investment that drives me toward my best!

There are many ways that one can employ in order to be happy but the best ways are the ones that are on one hand proved to bring about happiness and on the other hand also make you vulnerable even when living alone. These ways have brought me immense calmness and satisfaction which have led me to feel complete and thus happy as well. The following are some ways through which one can stay happy alone as well.

You don’t need anyone to be happy
Remember this notion to always succeed and feel good about the independence of life.

You are more valued
Always keep your own advice above others while respecting and acknowledging theirs on the side as well.
Get more out of everything by paying attention to it closely.

Enjoy silence and listen more
Establish enjoying silence as a way of thinking of it as an opportunity to reflect more peacefully.
Practice listening to what your mind has been asking you to do so you know what you want and need.

Collect moments!

Rearrange your things

Answer yourself

Keep creativity on the loose
Always keep making plans so that your creativity isn’t rusted or lost through the time and you feel proud of yourself.

Starting a blog? Try marathons?

Pursue your plans immediately
Always have new plans for yourself and pursue them as soon as it is possible to keep yourself from losing any energy and excitement altogether.

Travel outside your confort zone?

Do the impossible alone
Do what you thought you won’t ever be able to and do away with your fear of being unable to do something.

Keep volunteering
Volunteering is the best way to stay happy alone. It gives you inner satisfaction as you do new things without any expectation in return. This helps one rise above expectations and lifts you to stay elevated for your own self.

Wishing you all a lovely day ♥ More inspiring talks on Facebook and Instagram!

Imperfections are Beautiful!

The quest for perfection

I always wonder how a perfect life would look like, truth is that I may never get to know, I have not met one person who really knows. I am learning to seek the beauty in my imperfections and in all the imperfections around me, I found out that life works better that way.

Perfection vs. Imperfections

Perfection is not real, is just a myth. One of the most futile endeavors in life is to seek to be perfect. I always wanted to be perfect, to be the perfect child, to be the perfect worker, to live in a perfect house, to have a perfect life! Truth is that perfection is a myth, I can never be perfect and you can’t too.

You don’t have to be perfect to be happy.

I love to make the best of what I have and let my imperfections inspire me to be better and to do better.

Imperfections help you to connect better. I have noticed that our imperfection gives us a sense of purpose. It gifts us with a reason to want to be better.

Perfection is overrated. I don’t see any reason I would be happier if I were more perfect. I can still make the best of my life in my state of imperfection.

How to enjoy imperfection

  • I invest in myself instead of complaining about myself. I read books to help me improve my mind. I take care of my body especially my skin; I build strong relationships to improve my social life and emotional ambience.
  • I take care of myself instead of pursuing perfection. I give myself the best skincare I can afford especially with the help of natural and organic products.
  • I may not be perfect, I surely love quality and I don’t just settle down for anything. I always use natural remedies to treat skincare concerns as against artificial cosmetics.
  • I turn my imperfections into inspirations; I don’t allow that to cripple me or my passion for life. I allow them to push me to do more, to become more and to give more.

My little tricks

As imperfect as I am, I decide to bring out my beauty. I choose one thing about me and make the best out of it. It was a decision I took a long time ago and I have never come to regret it. I chose to take care of my skin in the best possible way and to make it as organic as it can be.

This skincare exercises has helped me to look beyond the imperfections. Thanks to organic skincare and natural remedies, I can boast of a clear skin that is truly beautiful and natural. It is my own little rebellion against the myth called perfection.

And, trust me when I see if I can do it, you can! We all have busy life,yet some simple tricks helps.

Face mask, think honey or oatmeal.

Feet treatment, think salt.

Essential oils as a natural remedies, well think lavender, cinnamon [All used safely]

Makeup remover, think coconut, macadamia, almond oil!

Remember, seeking for perfection will only wear you out in the long run. Do the best you can with what you have and stop living in a fool’s paradise in the name of chasing something that does not exist. Seek the beauty in your imperfection and watch your own beauty as it unfolds. Be natural, be beautiful.

Have a nice day and be kind to yourself today 🙂

5 Things you should start Doing to Be (Seriously) Happy

“Live life like I never have, live life through the good and bad, I’m gonna live life like it’s the only one we have.” Zayde Wolf

No matter how old we are, what we do, where we live, we are always after happiness. Well, I found out that happiness is not in a place or in a person. Happiness is the moments that we don’t want to be gone, the ones we wish it could last forever. So if you want to be happy everyday, you have to do out best to chase moments like these in our life.

If you are not living so many moments like that in your life, don’t give up, because it is never too late. And your attitudes and choices will make all the difference.

And you can ask me: but how about the moments that the things didn’t work out? Well, they brought you here right?! So I think it was not as bad as you thought. The things we did, the things we left undone, the heartbreaks, the tears, the scars, everything made who you are now, made you wiser and stronger to choose now better then yesterday. Being happy is not about having a perfect life, but it is about stop being a victim of the problems and create your own story.

And you can start the change today! I want to inspire you and your daily happiness with 5 things that you could add in your routine.

List your favourite songs!
list your favorite songs – Organicisbeautiful.com

1. MAKE A PLAYLIST WITH YOUR FAVORITES MOOD BOOSTER SONGS
Listening to the right song is the perfect remedy to heal every bad mood. So make a list of songs that make you instantly happy, that make you want to dance and jump, songs that make you feel alive. And begin you day listening to it. I am sure it will be the perfect way to start your new happy everyday week.

2. MAKE SOMEONE SMILE
I dare to say that smile is the most contagious thing in life. And this may happens for a reason, and an awesome one: when we make people smile, we smile. So don’t spare smiles, they are your most precious gift for the ones you love and even for the ones you don’t even know. If we all make each other smile, everyone will be happy.

3. DO SOMETHING NEW
To achieve what you have never had, you have to do what you have never done. So don’t be afraid to try new things, like a new food, a new sport, a new destination, a new adventure. Having a routine is the easiest way to live but the most boring too.

Writing your goals helps! | www.OrganicIsBeautiful.com

4. WRITE DOWN THE GOOD THINGS THAT HAPPENED
Our memory can fail us. Sometimes is easier to remember what he haven’t achieved, what we haven’t done than remember the good that already happened to us. So write done in a notebook the good things that happened to you every day. In the end of the week you can take it and see how happy you were. Life is good and simple, we just have to choose the right perspective. Words are a beautiful tool to use too!

5. GO AFTER THAT BIG DREAM, YES, THAT ONE!
Remember the dream that make you smile, that makes you wonder, that gives you hope, that lives in your hear? Now is time to do something about. Everyday do something that moves you closer to this dream. It doesn’t matter if the steps are going to be small ones, as long as you are moving in the right direction.

So, as Zayde Wolf sang: live life like is the only one you’ve got ♥

Amanda.
