Valentines often brings mixed emotions, depending on if you are in love or not? Moving from deliriously happy to deep depression (or so it can seem at the time). During this whole spectrum of emotions do we consider our love for ourselves? We focus so much on the love we share externally but what about internal love?
Our love to show compassion and accept ourselves?
Our love to accept every single bump, curve and smile as we show up as our self?
Learning to love our self unconditionally no matter what size, shape or weight?
Learning to be fair and non-judgemental and celebrate the amazingly awesome stuff?
To love to focus on the curves and feel of the skin we live in?
To truly love and respect the amazing body we were blessed with?
To nourish the soul, mind and body our parents created with love and passion?
If you met this person, this person who respected, showed compassion, loved and laughed in the blessed vehicle they were honoured to have?
Who made no apologies for their true awesomeness.
Who celebrated being in love with themselves daily.
Who never asked you to love something they didn’t.
Who was proud yes god dam proud to wear their skin daily
Whose inner beauty shone way beyond any number on the scales.
Who simply loves the person they are and the skin they wear no matter what.
So be that person.
Today send yourself a valentines note/card.
To promise to love yourself no matter what.
To build daily rituals into your life that build this belief of self-love.
To look at yourself daily and say I love you and shout out the things you love about yourself!
We all do it daily and focus on the stuff we don’t like daily, yet find it uncomfortable to do the positive. So, let’s push ourselves outside of our comfort zone and lets create a new attitude of loving YOU.
Love you first
Be your own valentine first today.
