Now, I am not one to condone writing on the walls in bathrooms. That is not what this is about. We have all been in a stall where someone has defaced the walls with whatever they have on their person; pens, markers, pencils or just something sharp they can use to scratch it in. Often, the things written are either cruel or mean, or it is someone professing their love for someone else. (T.O. + R.O. 4-Ever). I hate to generalize on this, but I would say that most of the graffiti is done by younger adults.
Today, I was inspired by some high quality graffiti in my stall. It read:
Love yourself for who you are
I absolutely adored this wall message and it made me think fondly of the new generation of young adults. Yeah, they’re writing on the walls, but at least they are writing about truly important things!
And it’s true. You need to love yourself for who you are. When you love yourself, you will start treating yourself better. You will find it easier to provide your body with healthy things and avoid things that are not good for you. When you love yourself, you will talk nicely to yourself and it will be easier for you to succeed at whatever you want.
So embrace the inspiration to love yourself! Small, inspiring quotes can be everywhere…. even in your bathroom stall. Be ready! Namaste.
