People go through different types of crisis in their life. If not necessarily financial, then it could be an emotional one. There are people on the brink of depression, those dissatisfied with their jobs, those dealing with lost love, and so many more. In the middle of it all, one thing they absolutely forget to focus on is their own goodness. That our goodness is something we can hold on to and which can keep leading us through the storm and out of it, is something many don’t believe in. A Delhi woman recently decided to tweet reminding people to focus on their positives and forget their pains for a while.
Naomi Clarette Barton is reportedly a 24-year-old Delhi-based marketing executive and posted a tweet recently asking people to write one nice thing about themselves in reply to her post. And Barton’s tweet garnered some interesting replies, forming a beautiful thread on the Internet.
She gave an absolutely amazing motivational speech in 140 characters to people rummaging through their Twitter feeds and made the world a better place, just like that. She wrote in her first tweet: “Quote this tweet with one thing you love about yourself so I know another thing about you that is awesome.”
And when she saw people were hesitant to get themselves going in the first tweet itself, she wrote this too — “Note : don’t pay attention to the part of your brain that’s saying that’s arrogant and smug and annoying. It is *healthy* to love yourself.”
Note : don’t pay attention to the part of your brain that’s saying that’s arrogant and smug and annoying. It is *healthy* to love yourself.
