How to be Your Own Water

In order to grow as sunflowers, we are going to need water.

Of course I’m meaning metaphorically, but you should actually drink lots of water to keep a healthy diet!

Anyway… in this case, when I say water I mean giving a compliment, or helping through the days where you may feel like you are wilting. It’s pretty much what you are using to become the most beautiful sunflower that you can.

Because growing into a sunflower is a process, you can really use all the help you can get.

But sometimes we are just in situations where we don’t have someone else to help us get that water. We don’t have a supporting family, or a significant other that can help us see our full potential. Or hell, we just want to figure out how to do it ourselves.

No worries, because you definitely can.

Watering yourself can be very easy as long as you remember two things:

  1.  Your opinion is the only one that matters.
  2. This takes time.

Just to elaborate a little it really doesn’t matter what other people think about you and the decisions that you make with your life and body. If you want to help yourself by being your own water, you have to also be willing to not care about what other people think. For example, you think that new matte lip creme you bought looks so great on you. You are finally feeling confident because that color really brings out your eyes. So when you pass by people walking down the street, and they are staring at you a little more than usual, you have to be prepared to cancel out the haters and continue to love that rad new lip color. You decided that you love wearing the color and will continue to, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Then, of course you guys know by now, I am a heavy believer that everything takes time. You have to understand that just because you have a good day of feeling confident and living care free, there are going to be days where everything might seem like it’s against you. Or that you may not feel fully confident after just one day of telling yourself how amazing you are. Just remember that with time those days will become easier to overcome and you’ll start believing in yourself and feeling confident more frequently.

  1. I loved this so much. Your flower analogy put it so beautifully…

    I am a sunflower, you are a sunflower, we’re all sunflowers ? – and we need to do what we can to simply water ourselves.

    I love it.

    Thank you for that beautiful reminder ❤️

    • Thank you so much!
      When I first decided on my rebrand, I figured I should just apply what I already believed.
      Sunflowers are my absolute favorite flower, and I always enjoyed their company.
