Hello Everyone and Happy Monday 🙂

Let’s start the week with a little self-empowerment. Or would this be self-care? self-improvement? self-worth? I do believe it’s all of the above.

Did you ever feel like you could not leave a very bad, self-destructive situation or relationship because there was simply no better option for you out there? “Better stick with the devil you know”, they say. “It’s not that bad and it could be worse” they say. “Be happy with what you have, you don’t need anything else” they say.

As if being ambitious is a vulgarity! As if you cannot be grateful for what you have but still seek to build more for yourself!

We unfortunately live in a society that will encourage you to be successful but scorn the way you go for that success. Magazines, Talk shows, people… they all tell you to love yourself but there is a correct way to love yourself, don’t love yourself too much, don’t think about yourself that way, don’t wish for too many things…

I’m calling bullshit.

Sometimes, you just got to walk away. When you feel deep in your guts that the people around you are trying to ruin your happiness and spoil your chances and opportunities because of their own insecurities or simply because of their jealousy,  then you should not feel guilty for walking away from them. You cannot always destroy a wall of hate, but you can  go around it.

Choosing yourself and putting yourself first is not being selfish. Selfish is only seeing yourself, no matter the pain, no matter the trouble, no matter the need around you. Selfish don’t need love, selfish does not dream. That is not you.

Don’t feel guilty for doing what is best for you because nobody knows what is best for you better than you do. Don’t stay with someone who doesn’t care for your ideas and your ambition, because if that’s the case he or she does not care for your heart either, I promise you.

The more you focus on yourself, work hard, fail even harder, get back up, jump all those obstacles, basically living and therefore winning your life, the more you will learn who you are and what you want. There is nothing more beautiful than that.

Enjoy today’s Shatzi.

Song of the day

Katy Perry “Part Of Me”

Days like this I want to drive away
Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade
‘Cause you chewed me up and spit me out
Like I was poison in your mouth
You took my light, you drained me down
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me[Chorus:]
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and your stones,
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
I just wanna throw my phone away
Find out who is really there for me
‘Cause you ripped me off, your love was cheap
You ripped me off, your love was cheap
Was always tearing at the seams
I fell deep, and you let me down
I fell deep, you let me down
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me
[Chorus]Now look at me I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You won’t ever put me out again
I’m glowin’, oh, whoa
You can keep the dog from me
So you can keep the diamond ring
I never liked it anyway
It don’t mean nothing anyway
In fact you can keep everything, yeah, yeah,
Except for me[Chorus]

This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and your stones,
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

This is the part of me, no
Away from me, no
This is the part of me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me…, no
Throw your sticks and your stones,
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
