This is your day, your month, your year 💥 we spend so much time giving to other people, loving other people, working for/with other people which is amazing but just remember to be grateful for being you as well. Make sure you’re happy, that you love yourself and you’re surrounding yourself with people who radiate positivity and joy. If there are people in your life that make you sad, unhappy or doubt what a wonderful person you are then cut them out…. Be silly, make people laugh, live each day trying to become a better person and being thankful for the qualities you have. Us humans always think about what we don’t have, what attributes we don’t have and focusing on our failures…. but if you take a look in the mirror nobody can be you… so appreciate yourself, the way you are with your lady lumps, humps, bunions, crooked nose or grey hairs as that’s the beautiful you so embrace it 💕 Let’s love ourselves as the world would be a better place…. 💫

Why Did Montana Brown Quit Celebrity Island?

Montana Brown signed up for Bear Grylls’ survival show alongside stars such as Joe Wicks, Eric Roberts, and Roxanne Pallett.

Like the former celebrity, Montana quit. And it’s for a pretty basic reason. It was too hard.

A source told The Sun that she quickly found that it was just too tough for her.

The source said: ““It’s the toughest reality show out there and she was up against some incredibly difficult challenges, and she eventually decided she just couldn’t hack it, it was too hard for her, so she walked.”

Basically, Montana Brown couldn’t hack it. Clearly, the Love Island villa is quite a bit different from the island in Bear Grylls’ show. Who’d have thought?

How Long Was She On the Island For?

We’d love to say that Montana gave it a fair shot, that she put in her all and only walked away from the gruelling show once she had given it time.

But Montana quit after only a few days.

The Sun reports that the shows’ producers tried to make her stay and convince her any way they could, but that there was no changing Montana’s mind.

The show was too hard for her, and that was that. And so she walked and the rest, as they say, is reality TV history.

What Other Shows Has She Left?

This isn’t the first time she has left a show. Although it is the first time she has voluntarily left a show.

That’s right, Montana Brown has been fired from a TV show before.

Montana had signed a six-month contract with MTV as an MTV News presenter. However, MTV bosses refused to extend her six-month contract because they just weren’t impressed with her. They even called her efforts ‘wooden,’ according to The Sun.

Ouch. Anyway, Montana’s contract ran out and that was that.
