Loving myself

Hey everyone,

Sorry that I haven’t been posting as much as I used to. With being a full-time student, part-time server, intern and blogger, things can get chaotic. Nevertheless, I hope that you have been enjoying my reblogs and I will try to post once a week. Keep up the great work that you all have been doing and the ones who seem to have fallen off the face of the earth, WHERE ARE YOU?

I heard the quote time and time again:
“In order to love someone, you must first learn to love yourself”.

I never really understood nor appreciated its message until now.

The five months that I have been single have been the best. I really got to understand who I was and learned that I have been neglecting a proper relationship with myself for far too long.

What made me so insecure? Getting heartbroken, bullied, cheated on three times and emotionally abused…yup that would do it!

I thought that love could validate that I was an okay person but God provided me the miracle of getting time for myself.

I gained my confidence, lost 11 pounds, dropped two dress sizes and don’t need a man to complete my life. Sure a man would be a nice bonus but I’m okay without, something that my brain is still trying to adjust to.

My friends and family are now my everything. My heart is no longer broken, just my muscles from working out so much.

Whenever I find an old remnant of my past relationship, I just throw it out as I know that who I was then wasn’t the true me. Who I am now is someone I forgot about a long time ago.

Most importantly, I can laugh at myself which comes in handy if you are a klutz like me. Overall, I am feeling FANTASTIC!

Live. Laugh. Love.

These are life’s basic pleasures. Enjoy them!

Sincerely,

The Modern Day Fairy Godmother

A little bit about me

This questionnaire is the product of suzi81’s blog and I highly recommend you partake in it. Just link back to her blog! 

1. Why have you chosen your blog name?

The Modern Day Fairy Godmother was named so because everyone used to call me The Fairy Godmother. I was also writing a book on love advice but I found that a blog would be much more immediate. The addition of the word “Modern” was to show that I was not going to be stereotypical and always kept things realistic, hence the slogan “No Pumpkin Carriages, Just Healthy Relationships and One Day, Happy Marriages”. 

2. When you have an hour of free-time, what do you do?

How about a MINUTE? I almost never watch T.V., so I lie down on my couch and watch my favourite shows or I go out with my friends. You need to treat yourself but lately, my schedule hasn’t allowed it.

3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what would it be?

Nine years old. Things were so simple back then and peers didn’t start getting mean until the year after. 

4. If you could learn to do something, what would it be?

I want to learn how to cook. I feel like I would be the most creative in my recipes by using ingredients that are not so common.

5. What would be the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?

My dream house.

6. What is the thing that makes you absolutely unique?

My inner strength. I often underestimate it but not a lot of people can go through what I have been through.

7. What is your favourite blog?

I don’t have a favourite as all the blogs I follow have something unique to give. Honestly, I read everything on my Reader like the morning paper.

Give this questionnaire a try!

Sincerely,

The Modern Day Fairy Godmother
