LADIES: Put yourself 1st & be selfish

As women, we continuously put others before ourselves. We nurture, support, congratulate, motivate and basically give our all to others and then there’s nothing left for us. And quite frankly, I’m tired of it. A lot of women are selfless and give their all to others before thinking about themselves and then they’re left with nothing to show for it e.g. they sacrifice loads for a guy, sometimes life-changing opportunities and are left short changed. I once saw a quote that went along the lines of: “I gave everyone bricks to build their houses and when I looked back I […]

Self-doubt & how I deal with it

Self-doubt steals more joy and dreams than failure ever will. Today I want to talk about self-doubt because it is a destructive trait. There’s no way to sugar-coat it or dress it up. It’s the epicentre of negativity and fear to me. Self-doubt is the lack of confidence about one’s own abilities and actions. Examples of self doubt: “What if I’m not good enough?” “What if I don’t succeed?” “I’m too old to be starting something new anyway” “It’s never going to work” “Things never work for me” “I’ve done something similar before and failed, why would it be different […]

Procrastination: The only action that doesn’t involve an action 

Procrastination is a thief of time and quality. When you procrastinate you rob yourself of the chance to produce things to the highest standard and give yourself a greater chance of failure. Avoiding doing a task doesn’t mean it will go away, it just gives you more stress and less time to do it. A lot of people, myself included procrastinate to the point where they’re disappointed at the time (hours, days, months sometimes even years) they’ve wasted because they avoided a task by putting other things & people first. Avoid doing this because you’ll only blame yourself when things […]

If you don’t compare, you don’t compete, so don’t compare.

Constantly comparing yourself to others is unhealthy at all ages. I say all ages because remember how it made you feel as a child when your parents compared you to your best friend who was very smart or your well behaved cousin or one of your friends who they thought was an angel but you knew otherwise… Yeah? It’s still unhealthy now as it was back then but this time you’re doing it to yourself. When you compare yourself to others,  you start pointing out your flaws,  all the things you haven’t done compared to them and how much “better” other people […]

Celebrate yourself 

Today I reached 1000 views on apieceofsarah.com It was my goal for January and I’m over the moon. It’s nice to see my website taking shape. I also have an Instagram where I post healthy food and a Twitter account, if you didn’t know already. I would like to thank everyone who have supported me through retweeting, following, liking & reposting. It does not go unnoticed and it is so appreciated. I decided to write this post because as humans we really don’t give ourselves enough credit on what we have achieved and focus on all the bad things we have done […]
