Loved this Quote from Marilyn Monroe,so sharing with you all .
We have distractions around us everywhere,from things that we like, people we admire , what everyone else is up to and how creative the world is going on internet ! All these distractions everyday drive us crazy! We often feel a certain pressure in our minds, to follow the crowd,although nobody asked us to, they just showed us what they are doing ! We keep trying so many things ,only to discover later that No, it is not my thing! We can never do it all,We can never have it all.
There is no harm in trying and knowing things but sometimes too much time is wasted in being trying to be some else that someone really important gets ignored ,and that really important person is You ‘your self’.
You need to be truly accepting yourself without the urge of having what others have, a very simple example :Somebody’s blue eyes might look good on her but you should be happy with your brown or black ones, this is Allah’s gift to you, Are you not happy with what he gave you ? Another example , tan skin in India is still not liked by people, girls are rushing for whitening creams although most of the country has brown skin, shorter girls yearning to be taller to an extent that they do not feel confident without heels! I am not asking you to go out without makeup or heels 🙂 No, but someday if you have, do not be shy or conscious! Girls are generally more sensitive about their appearance and their behavior is governed by the attitude of people and beauty conscious society . We need to have a strong inner defence system to reject all what is coming negative from people.We need to embrace ourselves truly and respect ourselves for who we are!
I think my focus is always on self learning and knowing inner self ,I always feel that I have limited time on this earth and wasting it on trying to be someone else is injustice and denial to my own being.I would rather spent on knowing myself,improving myself and being myself.
I may sound selfish with too much me and myself ,but believe me knowing yourself helps the world much more than being ignorant .If I am working on myself ,I would perhaps become a better person who is more sensible and sensitive to need of people around ,I might make some contribution to the world .
People only respect a person who respect himself ,who is free from the need to impress anyone but himself.Be in your own need,love yourself ,create yourself and BE YOUR SELF.
