But then there are days like today. Days where you breathe a bit deeper, laugh a bit harder, and smile a bit wider. Days where you feel good for no reason at all. I think too often people take these days for granted. Maybe it is just because they come less naturally to me; maybe I am more aware of them when they come, but I think days like these need to be celebrated.
The days when I genuinely love myself and feel confident in who I am are huge rays of sunshine bursting through cloudy skies and I am so, so thankful for them. I am working on actively seeking them out, on forcing the clouds apart myself, but it is so much easier said than done. So days like today are beautiful. And I think more people should take the time to appreciate them.
Take a few minutes to revel in the simple happiness. Smile at yourself in the mirror. Take a selfie for Instagram just because. Put on that outfit you love but were too self-conscious to wear. Give yourself an extra scoop of ice cream and don't spare a single thought for the calorie count. You deserve to feel beautiful and amazing every single day, but we all know it's not that easy. So on the days that you do, enjoy it, no matter what anyone else has to say about it. Make a point to celebrate these gifts from the universe. Life is too hard not to.
This post is my celebration of today's gift. Because some days I feel good for no reason at all <3
