Happiness Wednesday: Insecurities.

(image: blog)

Happy Wednesday! These are fast becoming my favourite posts of the week.... last week I spoke about the power of positive thinking which I have found to be very valuable in my life. 

This week I have been thinking quite a lot about one thing.... insecurities. I often find the negative voice in my head to be wandering and telling me I'm not good enough, slim enough, attractive enough, clever enough, interesting enough. You have to quieten this voice and feed it with positive energy is what I have learnt. Ultimately, you have been made who you are- you are good enough, pretty enough, you have WORTH. Self-worth is so important and must be built upon for the foundation of a solid life.

If you find yourself feeling insecure remember the famous quote by India Arie. This quote calms my mind sometimes,

'Thankful for all my impurities and insecurities... because I know its God just perfecting me'

Even if you dont believe in God, this quote is great because it makes you think, you can use any negative trait, anything you worry about, for the ultimate good of your spirit and soul. You can become better and stronger and beat those niggling worries! You are good enough!

Have a happy week.

And remember, we all feel insecure...its how we respond to those insecurities that makes the difference.



  1. We all need positivity in this life..I do mine on Mondays :) I'm slowly overcoming my insecurities, we all have to realise we're made in perfection and our differences are our strengths and we have something great to contribute to this world!! Wonderful!! Hope you have a sweet day!! xxx Kizzy!

  2. lovely post. we ALL deal with insecurities and they are terrible and can really get you down. positive thinking is so important. love the quote!

  3. Oh i have missed reading your lovely blog! I am so happy about you posting about insecurities, i try do to something small each day to make myself a more confident person. Sometimes i do get these insecurities like anyone but just remember people care about you and think you are wonderful :)

  4. and sometimes it's the things we feel insecure about that are the things that make us special and different. thanks for the positive thinking!

  5. I love this post, and vow to me more confident and secure tomorrow!

  6. I definitely know how the insecurity train goes. It sucks me under for days sometimes, and it's not a fun place to be. Having to remind yourself of your worth is surprisingly difficult sometimes, but very important! Thanks for sharing an awesome post like this, definitely some good food for thought. :)

  7. I often times find the same negative voice in my head, but it's the quirky things about yourself are the things you really learn to appreciate at the end of the day. You're different for a reason.!/_saratee
