Learn to Love Yourself
Happy Valentine's Day lovelies!
This Valentine's Day, I've been thinking about how important it is to love yourself. Yes, the holiday is typically dedicated to loving others, but loving yourself first is an essential part to being a healthy and overall happy individual, in my opinion. They say you can't fully love another until you learn to love and appreciate yourself. On this day when we're so busy showing everyone else how much we love them, don't forget to show yourself a little love.
Learn to Love Your Flaws
Flaws are the things we often hate the most about ourselves and our thoughts, unfortunately, often cling to them rather than the positives. This Valentine's Day, though, I challenge you to accept and maybe even try to love those faults. Our imperfections are what make us, well, us! Whether it's stretch marks, a lisp, or even terrible spelling skills, they make us unique and often are the things other people find most attractive and endearing about us! We need to remember that our 'flaws' make us who we are and make us beautiful in our own lovely, silly, and imperfect ways.
Whether it's a chocolatey treat or a new Zara purchase (or both in my case lol), this day should remind you to treat yourself too! You deserve just as much as your significant other, child, and/or friends! Acknowledge the amazing things you've accomplished and the talents and skills that make you you with some Valentine's gifts for yourself. You deserve, girl!
Take Care of Yourself
Today should also remind us to take care of ourselves! Looking after our minds and bodies is never a bad idea, but we often get swept up in our day-to-day lives and forget. Whether it's running yourself a bath, feeding yourself some nourishing foods, or expanding your knowledge with a new book, there are endless ways to take care of little ole' you!
