DO YOU SABOTAGE YOURSELF??
10th June 2018
How’s your weekend been?? I hosted one of the biggest Latin Festivals in London on Saturday La Clave!! It was so much fun also a great experience being around so many different people. I was planning to go to Parkilfe Festival in Manchester to see Lorde, NERD, Skepta and a whole gang of dope artists, but got booked to this and also meant helping a mate out.
It got me thinking how often I do new things, stuff I have never done before. I’m all for experiences and adventures these days and find fear, lazyiness and feeling uncomfortable stops me trying certain things.
Let me explain so I have always loved dancing, but… I do it secretly at home where noone can see me!! When I’m out unless I’m tipsy which isn’t that often I’m shy and awkward.. #Cringe.
Yesterday everyone was dancing, even Salsa and I was like I wish I was this confident. Anyone relate??
It’s not about being the best dancer, painter or even runner in the world, more about just having fun and being confident in your skin with who you are.
It’s funny also if I’m not naturally awesome at something… like let’s say ice-skating I give up rather then keep going and practicing. That comes from when I was really young being encoraged to focus mostly on what I’m naturally awesome at. I now know that’s super silly and you don’t have to be amazing at everything you do.
I think we all sabotage ourselves in so many ways and need to be our own cheerleaders a lot more and not give in when things are tough. Also not everything is about being the best or based around winning.
I can spend far too much time on social media ( especially IG) exploring other peoples lives and forgetting what I was meant to be doing Totaly blame #ExplorePage… Minutes turn to hours and then I’m like ‘MAX WTF” you wasted all that time!
I was reading that Camila who is currently on tour in the UK and kiling it by the way, has her social media on her mums phone. Such a good idea, that way she says she doesn’t look at all the comments, critics and haters or get caught up in other peoples lives. Instead she only uses it when she really wants to post something.
I think that is such a good idea. It’s like the best of both worlds. You get to live your real life and not waste hours scrolling every free minute you get getting caught up in gossip, celebs and bullshit.
Guys how often do you catch yourself scrolling?? Tell the truth?? Could you detox for one a week?? Have you tried?? How did it go?? Also do you sabotage yourself and talk yourself out of doing stuff you would love to??
Let chat in the comment section!!
