Embrace It

In recent weeks, I’ve been so lazy to do much with my hair. Partly because of the lovely hot sunny days we have had recently and partly because some days I just don’t want to have the hassle of being a girl. Sometimes getting ready in the mornings can be a lengthy process and embracing your natural qualities can be the thing that we all need to do once in a while.



Natural Qualities

I’m talking hair in particular but this can be applied to any form of beauty. We always want what we don’t have. Curly haired people want straight hair and straight haired people want curly hair. I have a natural wave to my hair and when I leave it dry on its own it goes quite curly. I don’t tend to brush it throughout the day when I leave it dry, to ensure the curls don’t fall out. And I also have to use a hair oil to tame that frizz. Sometimes I leave the baby hairs and sometimes I just straighten those bits. However, it takes 95% less time to get my barnet sorted in the mornings. And that’s a great thing!



Learn To Embrace It

I guess I normally prefer having tamed hair and so straight hair is my best option. It also goes up better etc. So I would still rather straighten it. And in the winter months my hair is not sodden wet when left to dry. However, in summer when the days are warmer, having wet hair can be quite refreshing. People also give me more comments when I have my hair curly and so maybe the things I am less appreciative of are those that other people wish they had more. Remember, there will always be people envious of something you have and maybe that’s a lesson to appreciate the quirks that make us individual.




So I guess what I am trying to say is let’s be grateful for those traits that we don’t value every day. Whether it’s hair or the way you look, other people might wish they had those qualities. Height is another example; short people tend to want to be taller and taller vice versa. But short can be cute or dainty and tall can be elegant. Make a list of things about you that other people have complimented you on that you take for granted. You’ll be surprised that actually you have things to be thankful for and mindful about.



Learning to love what you have is the best form of mindfulness we can live by. Gratitude can form so much positivity. Have I inspired you to try embracing your natural beauty?

    You are such a natural beauty! This is a lovely post and it couldn’t be more true – we always want the opposite of what we have! For me, naturally wavy hair has always been a dream but I just don’t have the time or patience to curl it every morning, so I settle for wearing it up in the night for some half-hearted waves ?

    I really love the jacket you are wearing here! And you look so, so pretty in these photos <3 xxx

      Aww thank you! You’re so kind ? Hehe definitely agree for wanting what we don’t have. I probably spend the same time straightening like you do curling haha! Your hair always looks lovely! Thank youuuuu re. the jacket. I’ve had it a while but it’s a great one to wear in Spring / Summer time as it is so lightweight! xxx

        You’re welcome ? just the truth! Hahaha it’s the same with one of my friends who has really lovely thick hair – she’s always getting it thinned at the hairdressers and I’m always trying to add volume to mine ? I guess we’re just never happy with what we have ourselves! And yesss it’s perfect for spring/summer ☺️ xxx

    Ah I really loved this post. It was very relatable. I also have crazy curly hair that looks like a frazzled toothbrush in the mornings. But you are right. It’s all about embracing those quirks. Although I hate my hair some days, there a lot of people who say they couldn’t imagine me without it!

      Really glad you liked it! Thank you for the lovely comment hehe. I totally get the frizzy hair dilemma. But yes, we should embrace it and celebrate it ? . Aww that’s a nice comment from people about saying they couldn’t imagine you different. Yay to making the most of our individual features! xxx
