Keep yourself first.

You are all that you have.

You will spend most of your life with yourself.

In your mind. And in this very body of yours.

So why aren’t you falling ridiculously in love with yourself with every passing moment?

Why aren’t you putting yourself first and taking fantastic care of your mind and body alike?

You really do come alone in this world and you go alone.

Whatever gems one can find in this journey, literally and figuratively, make it a whole lot better and memorable.

You. Are. Complete. Period.

You do not need any validation or help or support. Of course as a human being we need support from time to time but I am talking about the bigger things here.

You can build your life the way you want with perseverance and by putting in the effort.

Shut out the naysayers and give a little pep talk to yourself every now and then.

Whenever you find yourself in a hassle, stop, breathe. And talk. To yourself.

You will give the best advice to yourself. Just give it a try.

Even if it doesn’t do any good, it won’t do anything bad. So yeah.

Every cell of your body is working non-stop for the sole purpose of your survival.

Trust yourself. Love yourself. And please, don’t forget to put yourself first.

Lots of love,

Brown girl on a budget 🙂

    We think we are selfless we think we are empathetic.. We think we are emotional… All that counts for northing if others think you’re too dumb to protect your interests and set boundaries…. Keep yourself first… You can’t do anything if you don’t survive in the first place..
