Sorry I've taken a while to post this, I got behind with things. :)
Continuing the self love theme, here are a couple of posts on the concept of beauty and how you're actually more beautiful than you think you are:
PE article on beauty
I think that not feeling beautiful is something a lot of us struggle with, we never feel good enough or pretty enough but is there such a thing as "good enough" or "pretty enough"? And when will we feel that we truly are those things? On the other hand, there are people who say their beauty holds them back and gets in the way of forming relationships ,because people feel jealous of them or intimidated by them. It seems hard to understand if you're not someone like that but for the people who go through it, maybe it is as bad as not feeling beautiful enough.
The posts above can help you to see that there are different standards of beauty in the world, so there will be at least one person out there who thinks you're beautiful and probably many more! But the more I read, the more I realise how important it is that you think of yourself as beautiful* and that you have self worth.
*24/5/14- I just re-read this and realised that I originally wrote "think yourself beautiful". I think I meant, "think of yourself as beautiful" but "think yourself beautiful" is a good phrase, especially in relation to the Law of Attraction!
Also, here are a couple of posts on self love and being fine as you are:
Update 19/8/21- Site now gone.
P.S. I'm signed up to the From Heartache to Joy free summit which is going on currently. You can listen to calls from personal development and Law of Attraction experts and spiritual healers. Some do healing live on the call and you can also listen to replays. Check it out here: http://fromheartachetojoy.com/series6/

Dance Moms- I do find Abby really annoying but it is entertaining and they had it on every day this past week, so I've been watching a lot of it and got more into it, lol.

First of all I would recommend the posts on A BLOG ABOUT LOVE on the subject of being more vulnerable in order to connect with others. They involve realising that you have self worth, which I've come to realise is very important. I went through a phase of reading the first step over and over and it helped me feel better. Check out my post about the vulnerability steps here: https://fallingpetalsuk.blogspot.com/2013/09/a-blog-about-love-posts-on-vulnerabilty.html
Also this post about how your worth isn't connected to what food you eat or how much you weigh is very good: https://dannyandmara.com/2013/08/self-worth-your-weig/ (formely A BLOG ABOUT LOVE)
And here's another post about dating and verbal abuse:
The message is that your self worth shouldn't be based on the way someone else is treating you or on whether you're loved by someone else or not. Good message. :)
Here's another good post from Gala Darling: http://galadarling.com/article/100-ways-you-can-start-loving-yourself-right-now
Finally, I only just came across this blog the other day and found a post on self love:
I hope someone finds these posts useful. :)
P.S.I'm signed up to Love Myself, Love My Life, the free self love and acceptance programme that's going on currently. They are broadcasting live calls and replays from self help experts on loving and accepting yourself. Check it out here: http://www.lovemyselflovemylife.com/

I recently found the self help blo
I really recommend these posts on vulnerability and connecting more with others. That's something that I find hard to do. The three steps are Own Your Worth, Let Go of Fear and Love for the Sake of Loving.
Step 1: http://dannyandmara.com/2012/03/vulnerability-step-one/
Step 2: http://dannyandmara.com/2012/03/vulnerability-step-two/
Step 3: http://dannyandmara.com/2012/03/vulnerability-step-three/
There's also lots more helpful stuff on the site, on the subjects of self worth, being happy and relationships.

An affirmation is a statement that you can use to improve your life. You can use them to make you feel better about yourself and/or manifest something you want. For example you could say affirmations for things you want to believe about yourself such as, "I am a worthwhile person", "I am beautiful" or "I deserve all the good things in my life". Or you could use them to help manifest things that you want e.g. "I am in a wonderful relationship with my loving boyfriend", "I love my new job in advertising" or "I adore driving my bright blue New Mini Cooper/Subaru Impreza/BMW/insert car" (lol). The idea is that you read the affirmations over and over (people often recommend reading them out loud) until they sink into your consciousness and you believe them and then the things you said start to come true.

1. Personal Excellence (Formerly The Personal Excellence Blog)
This blog is run by Celestine Chua from Singapore and its purpose is to help people "achieve their highest potential and live their best life". It contains articles on a variety of subjects including achieving goals, better time management, dealing with difficult people and how to find your life purpose. There are also tips on how to life the best life for you and living a healthy life. Celes also runs challenges such as Live a Better Life in 30 Days (30DLBL) and 21-Day Journalling Challenge (21DJC). I took part in both of them and enjoyed them. Personal Excellence has an active community forum and you're encouraged to take part but if (like me) you prefer taking part in challenges privately or you'd rather just read the articles, there's still plenty you can get out of the site, including free e-books and a newsletter.

Here's a video that I found on YouTube of some falling petals, I think cherry blossom (sakura in Japanese).
Update 28/2/20: Unfortunately the original video is gone, which is a shame because it was beautiful! But here is another nice one of sakura falling in Japan:
