looking for a valentine for the 14th? the love of your life has been with you all along. whether you are single or in a relationship, there are so many reasons it's important to love yourself first. so before you ring-in this holiday of love within anyone else, take the time this valentine’s day to celebrate yourself.
take a good hard look. sometimes, it can be easy to look in the mirror and immediately identify your flaws. instead of tearing yourself down, build yourself up! stand in from of the mirror with a pen and paper and write down three things you love about the way you look. once you stop focusing on the negative, you might just find more than three! be mindful. now, write down three things that you love about the person you are. It can be as simple as saying you “i am happy”. write it down, read it, love it.
let it go. elsa had the right idea. we’re not saying you have to isolate yourself in an ice castle, but its time to release the grudges you’re holding against yourself. late for a meeting? blame yourself for a breakup? let it go, forgive and grow.
treat yourself. who says you need someone else to buy you a valentine’s day gift? treat yourself to chocolates, flowers… might we even suggest some sultry sleepwear you’ve been wanting to try? ;)
be thankful. surround yourself with people who know your worth. call a family member or friend that brings out the best in you. You have a lot to be thankful for, and speaking to those who remind you of that will help you feel oh, so loved.
