Practice what you preach.

Sometimes we put ourselves in a position where people look up to us and expect us to practice what we preach all the time! Like if you slip and do something against what you have said then they look at you like you are the Antichrist.

In theory, we should be able to practice our preachings every single day if we truly believe them. We should embody them like we do our simple morning routines but, the reality can be somewhat different. Like sometimes you might skip breakfast because you woke up a little late.

I don’t find it easy to be able to do everything I say all the time. Sometimes I look in the mirror and don’t like what I see, even though I tell myself that I am a beautiful queen every day (or so). Sometimes I allow people to walk all over me and I would kick up a fuss if I saw someone treating someone I love like that. Other times I say yes because I just can’t be bothered to say no. Like how many times have you been laying in bed so comfy but needed to pee but just couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed so you just fall asleep anyway?

I try my level best to be happy and smile every single day, especially having my little girl watching me and picking up on my moods. But there’s days when I just want to roll up in a ball with her and cry. It’s not a bad thing. It’s a release.

The truth is we can’t be practicing every day. Even the world’s best singers have a day or two of vocal rest. We all need at least one day off. They say, “nobody is perfect.” We are all human.

So the next time somebody says to you “Well you said do this but you are doing that!” Don’t let it dwell on you. Keep your head high and take it for what it is -their opinion!

You are not governed by anyone but yourself. Don’t beat yourself up for having an off moment, day, week or even year! It’s allowed. Staying true to you is the most important thing. Be confident in who you are and what you say, believe and do. You are amazing and can achieve wonderful things.

Be you.

Peace n Love!
