How To Be A Good Human : My Top 10

How to be a good human. Its not as easy as it sounds.

It’s interesting to see how different we all are, and how we all live our lives in different ways. It’s ok to be different – embrace it! Just remember to respect others too. Here’s a quick collaboration of some of my thoughts and lessons learnt.

10. Confidence is key. Want something but don’t have the confidence to go get it or ask for it? Why? If you don’t ask or try, you’ll never know.

9. Stay classy. Have a drink to enjoy it, not to get drunk. Don’t wear that short dress if you can’t bend over with confidence. Leave the heels in the store if you can’t walk without breaking your ankle. Step up, be a lady and become a grown-up, sexier, classier and more sophisticated version of you, pronto.

8. Don’t sweat the small stuff. We all make mistakes. Remember this, and remember to be realistic with your problems. Still got your health, a job or a place to live? You’re not doing to bad at all actually.

7. Don’t be a quitter. The only time you fail, is when you quit. Push harder than before, and never give up. Sure, shelf the dream for a while, but always have it on your mind and build your motivation up enough to have it ready to go when you’re ready and motivated.

6. Be present. Put your phone down. Listen and engage, and acknowledge people are around you and spending time with YOU. Not you, while you’re checking your Facebook. Nothing worse than having a silent and vacant brunch date with your bestie… Who’s barely even there…

5. Don’t judge. You’re not perfect either, so remember to be patient and kind. It’s actually a strength in character and people will admire and respect you for it. Lead by example and see the good in people, as you would want for them to see in you.

4. Use your manners. It’s not that hard, and people appreciate it. A simple ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ go a looooooooong way. Note boys, manners are sexy to ladies. You don’t have to always be opening the car door or pulling out our chair, but being polite is a huge plus for us. And ladies, don’t think you won’t be impressing the potential mother-in-law with your manners. She’s judging you on how ‘perfect’ you are for her ‘perfect’ son anyway, so make it count.

3. Take time for yourself. Relax, get a manicure, and a massage, take a holiday and watch countless re-runs of Sex And The City if you want. It’s all good. Just remember life is not all about everyone else. You’re allowed to look after number one on occasion.

2. Be genuine. There will be times you will struggle within yourself and your insecurities. May it be your personal inabilities, physicality’s, health, wealth, job prospects – whatever – it’s ok not to be alright. But it’s not ok not to be genuine. Remember that you are not perfect, be happy for those around you bettering themselves and genuinely celebrate their success. Wouldn’t you want them to do the same for you?

1. Treat others how you want to be treated. With respect, dignity, love and honesty. It’s a lot more simple to say it, rather than do it, but give it a go more often than not. You’ll be surprised by how others take your kindness.

  • Question.. Have you ever had Botox or fillers? 
Let me tell you my story 💖
I’m 31, I have two young twins and I’ve had plenty of late nights tending up with babies in the last few years. 
I’ve had Botox a few times in my life- I started when I was mid-20’s as I had began to have bad headaches and wanted an alternative. And, impressively, it worked very well! 
Since moving to the Gold Coast, I’ve been looking for a professional clinic to go to who has a long-term plan for me and my face. For me, it’s important to have a plan and to know where I’m headed - instead of me thinking I might know what I would like or what might look best in that moment. I am always searching for a professional opinion who can help me today and also well into the future. 
I’ve been going to @sculpted.clinic for over 12 months and here’s why:
- Dr Raja is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and has an absolute knowledge of my facial anatomy. He has the understanding that my face is not symmetric and might require different doses on opposite sides, and listens to my concerns and professionally and kindly approaches suggestions for enhancement. - I am treated like a friend and like I am part of the family, not like a number (the clinic is actually run by the family, which makes it friendly and approachable, whilst holding the professionalism level at its highest)! 💖
- I see a Doctor (Dr Raja Sawhney) who is looking at and treating my face as a whole and giving me the best options and a plan moving forward. - I see the doctor who injects me (ie no FaceTime to a doctor elsewhere) and I can as any question and have an immediate response with trust and understanding of what is happening and how it’s working for me. 
I want to be transparent and open about my treatments, and I want to open the conversation for you to ask questions and feel safe to do so. Do you have Botox or fillers? What do you think or know (or don’t!) about them? How can I help you understand or be more open about them? Let’s get this conversation started!
