You’re what you eat

motivational-quotes

You have been given some amazing gifts here. Focus on how you can develop and use them instead of looking at what that girl over there is doing. Be Yourself , You’re Amazing ! Look at the things you have already achieved , overcome and experienced . No one can do you as amazing as you can . You’re responsible for your health, growth and peace of mind .
No one can live a life for you..No one can push for you .. Love you for all that you have been,all that you are , and all you are yet to become .

You are YOU and No one is YOU and that is your super power .

You have one life ..

Live your BEST life ..

I strongly believe, “Health is Wealth” and “You’re what you eat”

Started a healthy eating lifestyle challenge this month ..  #AprilChallenge #selflove #selfcare

Health is not something we have. It’s something we create. Do you agree?!

It’s been over 2 years (today marks the day ) that I’ve eaten a vegetarian diet, and I’ve loved each moment. It’s been a transformative mind, body, spirit journey. It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. Health is something that will never go out of style .. it allows you to live your BEST LIFE. I encourage you to try one vegan meal a day. I don’t need to say much more. You’ll feel and see a difference. Enjoy the gift of health.

Winding up with a Quote

“Invest in yourself, it’ll be the best investment you ever made.”

Love , Devi ❤

Make Time For Yourself !

Day 22 of 365

This year choose yourself first. Know that you’re Amazing ❤

There is nothing quite as powerful in life as liking yourself.

You are, have been, and always will be… enough. ♥️

Let Go !

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” Hermann Hesse

Today, let go of some of the negative thinking, patterns, or people who consistently weigh you down. You’ll find it much easier to rise, rise above, and reach new goals.

Much Love , Devi

Your circle should want to see you WIN. Your circle should clap loudly when you have good news.

if not, get a new circle.

Dear Mamas , Take care of yourself first so that you can take care of kids . We cant pour from an empty glass . Give yourself number one priority .

It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.

Much Love , Devi xoxo

How to Celebrate Yourself ?

Good Morning loves, Happy Friday!!!

Today is 1st of December . This is the beginning of new month,new things.. I would like to tell you the lessons I’ve learned last month (November 2017) November has been a great month to me in terms of my business and personal life . It gave me some clear picture of certain things which troubled me for quite sometime now . I’ve learned a very important life lesson in November . I thought lot of young mothers with toddlers need to know it. I would share it with you so that it will be of use to someone .

I’ve learned to be good to myself (learnt to celebrate myself ) . I’ve got some time off from my routine work . I used my thanksgiving holidays to pamper myself. Ha Ha Yes self – pampering is good . Treating yourself good should be the first mantra to all women/mother  . I felt so relaxed and recharged .

Self-love is self-care , Caring yourself well when you get time . Create time for yourself . I have learned to enjoy treating myself . Life is too short to not to treat yourself ! Celebrate all small win . Remember , You are worth it and deserve it !

Love your curves! Embrace your body, your spirit and all that you are! I celebrate myself…💟💟💟 Learn to embrace your natural self

Nothing makes a woman more BEAUTIFUL than the BELIEF that she already is BEAUTIFUL .

Self respect, Self-worth and self-love all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value. – Rob Liano

As most of the Women thinks, Self-Love is not only exercising  and working out and maintaining figure . A small act which keeps you relaxed and happy is self-care.Get a massage , Get a facial , Go to the local ice cream parlor and indulge in the an ice cream , Go for a new fabulous hair style ,  Go for a long walk, Meditate, Practice yoga , Eat your favorite food, Watch your favorite movie of your choice , Visit friends and family members , Dress up well and take a selfie , Play with your dog, Enjoy your ‘ME -Time’,Go  shopping ( who would say no to shopping 🙂 )  buy your favorite nail polish or lipstick , Buy handbags, Buy the new pair of shoes you have been wanting, Read your favorite book , sleep and rest well and lot more .. Do more of things makes you happy and makes your soul shine .

There is nothing wrong with a constant need to do better- to grow, try new things, to learn and wanting to become a better person. But as you grow and learn, remember to stop once in a while and tell yourself that you’ve done a good job so far. Look at how far you’ve come, don’t be too hard on yourself. Loving yourself isn’t selfish. It’s not about conceit. It’s not about thinking you’re better than someone else. It is, however, a lot more than just “accepting” yourself.

This is what I did to pamper myself .(See pictures below)

1 . I made my hair red .. New-hairdo

See below , I had fun sharing pictures of my new hair style with my Facebook friends (their comments made me laugh Lol )

2. I cooked my favorite food .

I made my favorite, simple and easy onion garlic gray for lunch.

It’s so easy to prepare and tastes yummy  with white rice.My Mom used to prepare it . (Feeling Nostalgic ) This is a Indian menu .

(Pictures from my Facebook post)

3 . I had my favorite dishes in Plantain leaf . It’s a nostalgic feeling having food in plantain leaf . ( lot of childhood memories , those days during festive season we used to have festive food (feasting ) in plantain leaf .

 

I’ve learned to love me more and more now.

It’s time to close one door to open the next… Continuously moving forward with confidence and pride in who you are and where you are in your journey! …

Wishing you a new month and beautiful day filled with laughter and abundant love!!!

When was the last time you treated yourself ? What did you do? Would love to see your comments .

Love Always , Devi Venkatesan

 

 

The Importance of Self-Love

plk.png

Self Love – Love Yourself

 Self-love is essential to our happiness, relationships and dreams, but it can be hard to know HOW to love yourself. I’ve put together a list of Lessons below to help you get started. 

If you are not going to cheer ‘you,’ who will? If you don’t love you, who will? Ask yourself these questions. 

 “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
– Lucille Ball

oip

 Lesson 1:

Mirror Mirror on the wall:

Start each day by telling yourself something really positive. What you tell yourself is who you are. People’s opinions of you do not matter. What is important is what you tell that person in the mirror each day, that ‘I am beautiful’, ’I am Intelligent’, Anything that will make you smile .Every great thing we celebrate started with a thought. What you focus on focuses on you.

 Lesson 2 :

Self-Examine:

Do some self-examination. Evaluate where you are in your life at the moment. Think of the mistakes you’ve made, experiences you’ve gone through. Remember the lessons learned from your mistakes and experiences.

 Lesson 3 :

Treat yourself well:

Treating your body well not only boost your self-love, but also your energy… Learn to love the skin you’re in. Be intentional about what you put into your body, not only because you want to look good but because you want to feel good.

 Lesson 4  :

Be Calm and Relax :

Take time out to calm your mind everyday . Self-love is all about connecting with yourself.Being calm and relax allows you to connect with yourself by not thinking about what bills need be paid,what’s due at work  etc. Release your negative emotional energy and re-establish inner calm and peace .Just embrace the moment.

 Lesson 5 :

Self-Compassion is important:

Be good to you.. Be kind to you. Self Kindness leads to a healthy and happier life. Being Kind to you helps you to bounce back and to live a happier life

 Lesson 6 :

 Create a fantastic Community:

Surround yourself with people who love and encourage you. Let them remind you just how amazing you are.

 Lesson 7 :

Unplug from social media:

Sit down for a few minutes on your own. No TV or distractions, just you. Think about the wonderful things that are happening in your life right now, what your big dreams are and how you can make that happen.

 Lesson 8 :

Make a ‘What’s working for you list’:

Make a list of what’s really working for you. Write it down in a paper and once you see it on paper and accept all of the positivity in your life, it will make it easier to love yourself. Go through it again and again when you feel down. Your blessings and positivity gives a fresh energy when you feel depressed.

 Lesson 9 :

Practice Self care:

Spend time for Self-pampering. Keep doing what makes you happy. It can be a facial, body massage, applying moisturizer, cooking, gardening, playing with kids, adventures, fun games, watching a movie and so on…Get enough sleep, do yoga, have good food and drink plenty of water.

 Lesson 10 :

Be thankful:

Be thankful for all your blessings and positivity in life. Embrace and love the thing that makes you different. It brings peace to your mind and soul. I Stop taking my mind and body for granted and relish how blessed I am .

 Lesson 11 :

Clean out your closet:

Getting rid of old things will make room for new things to come in to your life! Cleansing your mind can sometimes work in the form of letting go of clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. that remind you of a certain time in your life that links to a negative vibration. Don’t chase what’s already happened; love yourself enough to know the best is yet to come.

 Lesson 12 :

No more Comparisons:

They is no one on the planet like you .Remember that you are perfect just the way you are; being in a pattern of compare and despair only makes you focus on the negative, when there’s SO much to be grateful for. The only person you should compare yourself to  is you.

 Lesson 13:

Self- Improvement:

You’ve got your own skills and talents. Remember that you’re unique, you have special unique talents within you which no one has. Embrace and love the things that make you different. You’re blessed differently. Learn to respect your uniqueness and find ways to improve your skills and talents. Try to improve yourself everyday. Be better than yesterday.

 Lesson 14:

Celebrate every day:

Celebrate your wins no matter how big or small. Pat yourself on the back and be proud of what you have achieved.

 Lesson 15 :

End all toxic relationship:

Seriously, Anyone who makes you feel anything less than amazing doesn’t deserve to be a part of your life.

 Lesson 16 :

Learn to Letgo:

We’re constantly holding on to things in our past, and it can tend to weigh heavy on our souls and even give us low self-esteem. The more blocks we clear, the more we can really live big in the area of self-love. Although we may do this as a way to protect ourselves from hurting, it’s really only holding us back from moving forward to reaching optimal self-acceptance and loving who we are.

 Lesson 17 :

Be your best version:

Often do something you are good at. Feel this is a self-esteem booster, Yes, no doubt .. This is! Get creative and express yourself in whatever way you like. Participate in a hobby or whatever you’re good at It can  be a craft,painting,music you do or love to cook then cook It’ll bring the best in you .Self-love and self-esteem go hand in hand.

 Lesson 18 :

Accept your flaws and celebrate your strengths:

Self-love does not mean dismissing your mistakes, no, it’s acknowledging them and making a deliberate choice to love you with all your flaws, insecurities, mistakes and choosing each day to do better, be better and ultimately live each day being you, doing you, fulfilling your purpose- what you were called to do on earth and ignoring the background noise. Stay focused, there are so many distractions in today’s world, don’t let it deter you from your goals and the amazing future that lies ahead of you.
