Self love this Valentine’s Day
 Self love for Valentine’s Day

I’m going to go out on a whim here and say somthing I may get stoned by the masses for, I’m not really into Valentine’s Day (dun dun dunnnn) it’s just not my jam, I feel like if you love someone, tell them and make them feel special eeery day... but that’s just me. 

While I not really on the V day express, I know that some people are fully all a board and I absolutely do not judge you, love is a beautiful thing and should be celebrated in anyway you want to. 

But it’s not just love of a partner or your gals (FYI, Galentine’s...? Toootally something I can get on board with!) self love is also just as important as anyone else. 

We’ve all heard of it, but how many of us actually practice is? I know I’m guilty! In this fast paced, hectic life we live in, it’s sometimes so easy to focus On the world around us, instead of focusing on ourselves. As individuals we do amazing things every day, so it’s time we showed ourselves a little support! 

“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?!”.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Take some time for your self. Self love is not selfish. You are no use for caring for others if you’re not caring for yourself. Spending a bit of time to do you is so important in order to keep your mind, soul and body happy. Start a new series or focus on an exercise plan, but take a bit of time to enjoy your own company. Don’t take yourself for granted and rest when you need to rest. You did good today, so put your feet up. 

Another way I’m attempting to practise self love, is by *trying* to find the positives instead of the negatives when I look in the mirror. I present to you... Positive affirmations – aka your new bffs! Positive affirmations are like food for the soul, and your soul is hungry so give it a cheeky snack. Start the day right and try and see something positive about  yourself when you look in the mirror, or write a positive thought for the day down in your journal. You are amazing and you deserve to know that about yourself!  

Stop comparing yourself. I say that like it’s easy, and with the massive explosion of social media, it’s so so hard not to compare yourselves to others. But instead of comparing, try to look up to those people. How have they got where they are? Let them inspire you and you will flourish. 

Last but not least, don’t forget to fall in love with yourself. It may take time, but learn who you are and embrace it.  You are amazing and like Ru Paul says “if you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?!”.
