Love yourself first 💌

A little valentine’s day reminder to start with yourself ❣️

As they say, "You can't pour from an empty cup."
So, fill your cup with self-love and let it overflow to those around you.

While I consider myself a hopeless romantic, I've never really embraced Valentine's Day. I lean more towards the "show me your acts of daily love" philosophy, if you catch my drift. Despite my reservations about the commercial aspects of today, I do value the extra care and attention everyone puts into overt expressions of love. Rest assured, I haven't reached the point of being a completely jaded and cynical single woman just yet 😜.

Whether you’re In the midst of all the heart-shaped chocolates and romantic gestures, receiving subtle hints of romance from a questionable situationship (no judgement, we all need to fill the void some times) or going all out on Galentine’s with your friends, we wanted to take a moment to remind you of the most important love of all: self-love.

This Valentine's Day, let's celebrate the beauty of loving yourself first. It’s neither pitiful nor selfish; it's a fundamental act of self-care that lays the foundation for the love you can share with others. Here are a few ways I’m practicing self-love not just today but try to everyday:

Embrace Your Uniqueness:
In a world full of comparison and monotony via trends, learn celebrate the qualities that make you who you are. Embrace your quirks, imperfections, and strengths. Remember, you are one-of-a-kind, and that's something to cherish.

Prioritize Self-Care
In this economy the hustle and bustle never ends. Jump off the hamster wheel, force yourself to slow down. Take time be OFF. Get of social media. Whether it's quality time with friends and family, a bubble bath, a walk, or simply reading a book, prioritize activities that bring you joy and relaxation. A well-nurtured self is better equipped to care for others.

Positive Affirmations
No one is a harder critic than our own thoughts. Give yourself grace. Start and end your day with positive affirmations. Remind yourself of your worth and capabilities. Speak to yourself with kindness and encouragement, just as you would to a dear friend.

Set Boundaries
No is. a complete sentence. Learn to say no when needed. Setting boundaries is a powerful way to protect your time, energy, and emotional well-being. It's an act of self-love that fosters balance in your life.

Gratitude Practice
Cultivate a mindset of gratitude. Focus on the positive aspects of your life and acknowledge your achievements, no matter how small. Gratitude is a powerful took that helps to shift your perspective and enhance your overall well-being.

Remember, by loving and caring for yourself, you create a reservoir of love that naturally extends to those around you. This Valentine's Day, let's make self-love a priority and celebrate the beautiful journey of becoming our best selves.

Wishing you a day filled with love, laughter, and the joy of being true to yourself.
