You can find evidence of anything in your life

Hey Bloomers! 🌼 You are capable of deciding what you want your reality to be, partly through the power of perception. You can find evidence of anything in your life, and that is why it is crucial to focus your attention on things that are beneficial, instead of those that have adverse impacts. Whatever you want to believe, you will find evidence for. This is both a power and a curse, and you need to use the former while disregarding the latter.

Self-love is also about accountability

Hey Bloomers! 🌼 The idea of self-love is often associated with activities and actions that are meant to make you feel good about yourself. Although this is absolutely correct, it’s important to realise that there is also an “ugly” side to self-love, a side that requires you to feel bad before you can feel good. This blog post is focused on one such side: self-love is also about accountability.

It’s okay to deviate from time frames ⏰

Hey Bloomers! 🌼 Many of us are guilty of the issue that is going to be discussed in this blog post: making random life predictions and then becoming highly affected when they are not achieved. This ranges from the little things such as “I am going to go through three chapters today” to more significant things like “I am going to have a house by 30”. It’s important not to measure your value against these statements or leave no room for disappointment because it’s okay to deviate from time frames.
