April Sunshine OOTD

Hello lovelies!! It's finally getting warmer here! There's a French saying that goes: "Au mois d'avril, ne te découvre pas d'un fil" which means "In April, do not remove a single thread". The literal translation doesn't make much sense, but the saying means that in April, it's still too early to be putting away all your winter gear as the temperature can still go below zero degrees (and often does!). The first few days of April were quite cold and rainy. However, this weekend has been gorgeous and well above zero so Simon and I decided to go for a long walk near the Ottawa river. As you can see, it's still a bit gloomy out as the trees are still barren but the gorgeous sunshine made up for it!

Be Kinder to Yourself

Sometimes I feel like I'm my own biggest critic. I can be a perfectionist at times and I overthink tiny details. I decided to write this post to help anyone who might also struggle in this area. We should love ourselves and encourage ourselves, not focus on our flaws. It's important to remember that no one is perfect. If you've made a mistake today, forgive yourself! Remember that tomorrow is a new opportunity to try again. If you're kind to yourself you'll feel more positive, and it will be easier for you to be kind to others. Here is a list of ways to be kinder to yourself:

-Take deep breaths; relax
-Take a bath
-Drink a lot of water
-Let go of negative thoughts
-Go for a walk
-Eat healthy
-Treat yourself to a sweet
-Stop comparing yourself to others
-Listen to the wind in the trees
-Exercise
-Take time for your hobbies
-Spend time with animals
-Remember that you're unique

What are some of the things you do to be kinder to yourself? Thank you for stopping by! xo
