Do Not Do This To Yourself| story

So a few weeks ago, I’m not entirely sure why, but I was overly obsessing about my pimples which were not even that much to be called acne by the way. It definitely had a lot to do with the fact that different people kept pointing it out to me ( as if I don’t take a look at myself in the mirror) . Without realizing it their opinions slowly crept in and I found myself doing different methods on my face .

Growing up I always knew of the great properties of garlic for removing pimples. I had also gotten results from it before. So here I was grating some garlic to get that juice out and I spread it against my cheek with the most pimples at the time. leaving it overnight I washed it out that next morning.  Yet again I did get success on some smaller pimples but there was this one that still bugged me. Later that same week I did another garlic treatment on that cheek and was shocked at what I woke up to.

For the first time in my life I had given myself a Garlic Burn. I didn’t even know garlic could burn you but yes it can. With all the things I was applying to my face I shouldn’t have been too surprised.

The Point of all this is to remind myself to never let the voice of others cloud what I know to be right. I must have been a bit stressed, not drinking enough water. But even besides all that , if I had taken a spare moment to tell myself that I look beautiful today or these pimples are just temporary, I wouldn’t have taken on extreme measures to get rid of them quick. Everyone on this earth will get pimples unless they have some new and rare skin thingy.  It’s better to walk around with a few zits than to look like you might be cat woman by night.

Why the New Year Resolution is important.

I have heard and been guilty of not setting any new year resolutions because I “know” that I wouldn’t complete them anyway. Honestly I think that is stupid.

If there was a large jar to collect the amount of motivation that the world has during the new year period I am certain it would be a very very large jar. what better time to begin completing something than this time where your motivation and drive is at the all time high. Last year I opened up this blog in January as a new year resolution. I made many other resolutions but among the many that I didn’t complete, here I am today still writing in this blog.

People like myself often set multiple very large New years resolutions and to be honest I think we have the ability to complete them all whether they be large or small. The reason why I love setting goals for the new year is because like this blog, I am certain that if I just train myself to become more diligent that I will be able to cross off everything on my list and even if I haven’t done everything, something always gets done.

I know that it might be boring to read, me starting over and  over all the time. To me , I am trying hard to keep getting up after negative self talk.  Completing goals is easier said than done and I am not pleased with the amount of times I have seen Write a book on my new years list. However, the fact that it is one goal that always appears makes me feel like this is something that I really want to do.

This message is more for me than you: Don’t give up before you even started.

What are some goals that appear  on your resolution list every year?
